Tesla's stock took quite a battering last week.

Now, the electric vehicle maker that is said to be a darling among celebrities seems to have lost one.

In an interview with Esquire's Tom Junod, George Clooney let on that he isn't a fan of Tesla's cars. From Esquire:

"I had a Tesla. I was one of the first cats with a Tesla. I think I was, like, number five on the list. But I’m telling you, I’ve been on the side of the road a while in that thing. And I said to them, ‘Look, guys, why am I always stuck on the side of the f*****g road? Make it work, one way or another.’ "

We imagine Clooney is referring to his early edition Roadster which he auctioned off in 2012.

Tesla discontinued sales of the Roadster in 2011. In its S-1 filing at the time, the company said it doesn't plan on "selling our next generation Tesla Roadster until at least one year after the launch of the Model S."
