Fabio to Clooney:

I Can't Believe

It's Your Finger

11/7/2007 7:14 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

George Clooney and Fabio got into a little scuffle in a Los Angeles restaurant over the weekend, and TMZ has the blow-by-blow!

George Clooney, Fabio
TMZ obtained photos taken at Madeo's, where Clooney and Fabio later got into a shoving match. Sources inside tell us that several women who had won a dinner with Fabio were sitting at his table snapping photos of the "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" hunk, when Clooney apparently thought they were shooting pix of him -- and gave them the finger! When George questioned the group about shooting pics of him in a private restaurant, Fabio came to their defense -- and allegedly, it got a little physical.

Don't mess with Fabio!

DAMN FABIO you had the chance to kick his ass, why didn't you. I can't believe he actually tried to stand up to Fabio. Does he have a death wish? apparently so.

This is so funny!
George Clooney is a great guy, and a great talent. I am sure he is laughing his ass off about this right now. The man has every right to eat in peace. No doubt the guy is bothered by photographers ALL the time. It isn't a huge leap for him to think they were snapping shots of him. I don't understand why everyone is putting him down. (Also, I am certain that George could clean Fabio's clock any day).Too bad the waiters stopped him

Clooney is a has been waiting to happen. If he actually believed all the crap he spoke about he would pay extra taxes (it is allowed) instead of complain about the poor or the government's debt. He is an old punkass.

I believe George is considered one of the most accomodating and nicest Celebs by the paps and when in public he will even help fans take his photo.

But it seems there is a rule that no photos are taken in private restaruants which makes sense,. Celebs are entitled to some down time and it would be constantly disturbing other dinners,

Also note that the standard signal that a pap or anyone else has overstep the bounds for photos is to give the finger. Check out the Chris Rock video, and the TMZ artilce on Heath Leger. You see it all the time.

So it looks like Fabio was in the wrong. He has been around long enough to know the rules. He could have stood up against a wall to have the women take his photo, or faced away from Clooney, then there would have been no problem. It sure looks like Fabio was tryijng to take advantage of the situation.

It is too bad about the shoving; a smart put down would have been better, But Clooney is an Irish American so what can you say.

But there sure is a lot of animosity towards Clooney from the male posters. He is exceeding good looking and has tremendous flair. And frankly I think he is a better writer/director/producer than actor, though they say Michael Clayton is really good.

Clooney is a P-U-K-E. Fabio was doing a charity event. Who cares if Clooney was in the picture. Note to Clooney; Those women taking pictures were your (former) fans. You should be nicer to the people who bought you your fancy house in Lake Como.

Oh, give me a break, George! Don't even flatter yourself, you stupid ass! Doesn't that figure- actors are made by the public, then when people do want to take a pic or get an autograph, the actor get all hot & bothered, like they're friggin' royalty or something! As far as I'm concerned, Hollywood could fall off the face of the earth, we would all be better off without those @$%^&#!*&!!

ricky    

George Clooney is an example of what happens to people after years of alcohol abuse.They become delusional and paranoid.If he really was behaving that badly and he really did say rude things to the women in Fabio's group, I'm sorry that Fabio didn't smack that little bitch Clooney across his famous kisser!!! P.S. I am a liberal and i find Clooney an embarassment

That finger is anatomically incorrect. It's far too long. I suspect it was digitally edited and TMZ fell for the fake.

George Clooney is so overrated. It just mad because Fabio is truly an Italian Stallion, and George is a transplated rip-off.
