A brutal night

Clooney Describes 'Brutal Night' With DeVito

NEW YORK (Dec. 1) - Blame it on the shots of limoncello. George Clooney says he woke up tipsy after a "brutal night" out on the town with his pal Danny DeVito. "Well the funniest thing was, ah, you know, we were just at a restaurant," Clooney says in an interview to air Monday on NBC's "Today" show.

"It wasn't like we were out drinking. We were at a restaurant, sitting down, drinking. I was in bed by 11:30 at night and I woke up at, you know, 7 (a.m.) and I was still drunk (laughs). ... It was a brutal night."

Clooney, 45, tells "Today" co-host Matt Lauer that he and DeVito "were doing shots of limoncello and that's all I can really say on the subject."

He also tells Lauer it is "all I can remember."

DeVito made a loopy appearance Wednesday on ABC's "The View," saying he'd had a late night out with Clooney.

"I knew it was the last seven limoncellos that was going to get me," said the 62-year-old actor, who was promoting his new comedy, "Deck the Halls."

When Lauer asks Clooney how much was consumed, he replies: "A lot. ... I got to the point where I was dumping the shots into, ah, you know, a plant next to me and, um, I don't think ... I don't think Danny saw me do that."

I KNEW that was the story. When I heard he was out with Clooney and God knows who else, I knew, fucking knew this was the story. Although I would take the 11:30 PM thing with a grain of salt. Because one could conclude that a night out with Mr. Clooney for a man would end with someone too drunk to move. At least one person too drunk to move.

I wish I could say I didn't know anything about that, but why bother lying.

Which is why I learned a LONG time ago to go home when the drinking got stupid, as apparently it did here. DeVito forgot one thing: Clooney was going to bed, probably not alone, and he had yenta TV to do.

Once I saw him stagger out and heard the words drinking with George Clooney, I knew what happened. Why? Because I have friends who have done the same thing to me. Stay up way, way too late and kept drinking.

And if someone wants to claim he's playing dirty pool by ditching drinks, you know how many people want to get fucked up with George Clooney? If he didn't ditch drinks he'd be Foster Brooks.
