George Clooney Warns Tina Fey And Amy Poehler That They Have 'Poked The Bear'

As hosts of this year's Golden Globes, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler had a great time poking fun at a few actors' love lives. George Clooney, one of their primary victims, told Access Hollywood that Fey should tread softly after dissing him at the award show. This bear is mad.

On Golden Globes night, Fey introduced Clooney's film "Gravity" by saying, "'Gravity' is nominated for best film. It's the story of how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age."

Clooney's co-star, Sandra Bullock, found the joke particularly funny but, apparently, Clooney hasn't been able to totally let go -- despite admitting his tendency toward younger women.

The actor confessed, "It's a well-crafted joke, I can appreciate that."

Though he isn't ready to give in just yet.

"They have poked the bear with a stick. Oh, they have poked the bear," he mused. "I don't want to scare Amy or Tina -- I don't want them to be afraid at all -- but they've poked the bear."

Clooney is a king of practical jokes, so the comedians should probably watch their backs. "There is going to be some pay back," the "Gravity" star warned.

Fey and Poehler shouldn't take his threat lightly after Clooney's recent prank against Matt Damon which involved having his pants taken in to give the illusion that he was gaining weight.

We'll be anxiously awaiting his revenge …
