LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais wasn’t the only one doling out the barbs at Sunday’s ceremony.
When George Clooney accepted the award for Best Actor in a Drama (for his role in “The Descendants”) he not only thanked pal Brad Pitt, but he also took a moment to commend fellow nominee Michael Fassbender on his manhood.
“I would like to thank Michael Fassbender for taking over the frontal nude responsibly that I had,” George joked, referring to Michael’s often-nude performance in “Shame.”
“Really Michael, honestly, you can play golf like this with your hands behind your back,” George said, while making a golf swing motion with his hands behind back. “Go for it man, do it!”
As George joked with Michael, the “Shame” star was seen smiling in the audience, but what did Irish/German actor really think about “The Descendants” star joking about his manhood in front of all of Hollywood and the world?
“I love him, man,” Michael told AccessHollywood.com’s Laura Saltman following the ceremony.
