George Clooney has, allegedly, wanted to team up with Margot Robbie, but he suddenly had a change of heart.
According to New Idea, George Clooney wasn’t thrilled when he found out that Robbie is also working with his enemy, David O. Russell.
“It’s not Margot’s fault… It’s who she hangs out with that’s the problem. However, her signing pretty much slams the door on George having any association with her in the future. She’s gone in the same blacklist as Mark Wahlberg,” the source said.
George Clooney at odds with David O. Russell, Mark Wahlberg
The insider claimed that Clooney and Wahlberg’s feud started after the latter refused to take his side in 1999. Back then, Amal Clooney and Russell, allegedly, got into a fight on the set of Three Kings.
“It was pretty vicious but George and David have been public enemies number one ever since. And anyone associated with David is banned from George’s circle,” the source said.
Margot Robbie wanted to work with George Clooney
As for Robbie, the actress was also, allegedly, excited to team up with Clooney. But she didn’t know why the actor had a sudden change of heart. Now, the Harley Quinn star has, allegedly, been made aware of the real reason why the actor has blacklisted her from working with him.
“Though no fault of her own, a silly on-set fight that happened when she was eight years old has cut her out of one of Hollywood’s most prestigious inner circles. She’s not going to let it worry her, though. This movie with David and Christian could earn gongs to have her own prestigious inner circle,” the source said.
The on-set brawl
According to Insider, Clooney and Russell got into a physical fight on the set of the movie in 1999. But it is unlikely for this incident to have affected their relationship with other actors.
George Clooney is a professional so if he wants to work with Robbie, he would certainly find a way to make it happen. It is unlikely for the actor to blacklist the Australian actress due to his own misconduct.
Leonardo DiCaprio bans Johnny Depp from Hollywood?
It is not uncommon for tabloids to concoct stories about actors, allegedly, banning other celebrities. In August, New Idea also claimed that Leonardo DiCaprio banned Johnny Depp from Hollywood amid his legal battle with Amber Heard.
“Leo is livid. He’s banned all his associates, as well as anyone who wants to work with him ever again, from dealing with Johnny. He can’t believe Johnny’s thrown him into his mess like it’s no big deal,” the unnamed source said.
However, there is also no truth to this claim. George Clooney, Depp, Robbie, and DiCaprio are still very much a part of the industry.
