(Us Magazine) George Clooney has denied his former ER costar Vanessa Marquez's claim that he "helped blacklist" her for reporting on-set harassment.
"I had no idea Vanessa was blacklisted," the two-time Oscar winner, 56, said in a statement to Us Weekly on Friday, October 13. "I take her at her word. I was not a writer or a producer or a director on that show. I had nothing to do with casting. I was an actor and only an actor. If she was told I was involved in any decision about her career then she was lied to. The fact that I couldn't affect her career is only surpassed by the fact that I wouldn't."
