George Clooney "looks down" on reality TV stars. Clooney says there is a "pecking order" among actors, but insists all thespians have a low opinion of talentless attention seekers.
He said: "There is a strange pecking order among actors. Theater actors look down on film actors, who look down on TV actors. Thank God for reality shows, or we wouldn't have anybody to look down on."
George's comments have seemingly ruled him out of appearing on hit talent show 'Dancing With the Stars'.
Last month, the show's host Samantha Harris said: "George Clooney, I pose this challenge to you - I want to see you shake your hips! "You know what? George Clooney is such a gentleman, and he looks fantastic in a tux, I think that he would do an amazing job in the ballroom numbers."
Clooney originally found fame in the 90s as Dr. Doug Ross, in hit TV show 'ER'. He then hit the big time in Hollywood with roles in a string of hit movies including 'Three Kings', 'Syriana' - for which he won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar in 2006 - and 'Ocean's Eleven'.
This year, he has been nominated for Best Actor for his role in 'Michael Clayton' at the upcoming Academy Awards due to take place on February 24.
