Wynn: Clooney ‘money coddled’

2 May, 2014

Clooney -WynnIn a Bloomberg TV interview Steve Wynn denys he ever insulted Obama and says Hollywood celebrities “live in a very strange bubble of their own.”

They’re money coddled, they’re highly privileged, We are talking about successful artists like George, Barbra Streisand … they live in a relatively small world, the people around them are very solicitous and caring of them. They have a worldview that is therefore ‘Everything should be given to everybody’ because everything has been given to them.

Wynn also said that as a billionaire businessman, he has a broader perspective than Clooney.

You have to protect the enterprise in order to take care of the employees. So therefore, you can’t be wasteful, you can’t squander things or you jeopardize people. Running a business gives you a sense of compassion that is defined in different terms than someone who just thinks of themselves as generous.
