George Clooney


OK, so he's not perfect!

George Clooney usually has a Midas touch, but during a recent interview he admitted that there's one thing he isn't good at: singing!

On Popcorn With Peter Travers, the Hollywood star explained how he discovered that he couldn't carry a tune despite the fact that singer Rosemary Clooney was his aunt.

"Here's the thing, when I did O Brother, Where Art Thou? I went into a recording studio and T-Bone Burnett and Joel and Ethan [Coen] assumed that because I was Rosemary's nephew that I would be a great singer, and I kind of assumed that, too," he said.

"Then we got into the recording studio and I sang "Man of Constant Sorrow" with all the music playing and I finished and looked up and there's that glass booth with all of them in it and no one would look me in the eye."

He continued, "Then they played it back and it was pretty bad. It was so bad that I made them destroy it."

But it turns out that Clooney does have one song perfected, a childhood tune that Rosemary and his father used to sing during long car rides.

The Monuments Men star sang the half-English, half-Spanish jingle so fast that it almost made Travers' head spin.

And to be fair, his voice didn't sound half bad after all!

Clooney also addressed his previously rumored feud with Leonardo DiCaprio.

"Somebody made it like there was a big fight," he clarified. "I've known Leo a long time and somebody just made that a fight."

Sounds like there's no bad blood there!
