George Clooney: Releasing Demi Moore's 911 Call Was "Stupid"

The actor expresses concern for Demi, who was rushed to the hospital early last week -- and rails against invasion of privacy

Demi Moore hasn't lacked for celebrity support since her health crisis made headlines early last week. And the 49-year-old actress can add George Clooney to the list of famous friends who are pulling for her. While being interviewed at Sunday night's SAG Awards, Clooney expressed concern for Demi's health and outrage at the recent release of Moore's 911 call.

"It's always troubling when people you know and people who you care about end up going through a difficult time," Clooney, 50, told The Insider.

"I think it's a stupid thing. I think it's stupid for anyone, whether they're celebrated or not, I don't believe their 911 call should be broadcast around the world, but that's my opinion," Clooney continued. "What's happening and what people have to remember is that people are getting famous from Facebook and Twitter, so it's not just about people here, it's about everybody. There won't be any version of privacy. So it's going to be a tricky thing."

The 911 call revealed that Moore had apparently "smoked something" similar to marijuana that resulted in symptoms similar to a seizure. She was rushed to a hospital and has since sought treatment for what her rep calls "exhaustion." Moore subsequently dropped out of the upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic Lovelace, and has been replaced by Sarah Jessica Parker. Even so, Demi's pal, director Patti Jenkins, says the actress is "doing great."
