Clooney Claims His Batman Was Gay; Barbara Walters Interviews Other People

by | March 1, 2006 | Comments

According to the New York Daily News, George Clooney tells Barbara Walters tonight that his 1997 film “Batman & Robin” was more like “BrokeBat Mountain…”

From the Daily Dish:

George Clooney outs Batman on Barbara Walters’ Oscar special tonight. Asked if he’d ever play a gay role, Clooney says he already did — as Batman. “Think about it,” he explains. “I was in a rubber suit. I had rubber nipples. I could have played him straight but I didn’t. I made him gay.” Well, that puts Bruce Wayne’s “ward” Robin in a new light …”

It all makes sense now…catch the interview yourself tonight. Walters’ annual Oscar special airs tonight on ABC and includes one-on-ones with Clooney (on his cinematic politics), Patrick Dempsey (on his dyslexia), Matthew McConaughey (on being sexy, and his romance with Penelope Cruz), and Mariah Carey (on her childhood, her break down, and her comeback).
