"(Arnold) Schwarzenegger was paid, I think, USD 25 million for that, which was like 20 times more than I was paid for it, and, you know, we never even worked together! We worked together one day. But I took all the heat," Clooney said.
"Now, fair deal; I was playing Batman and I wasn't good in it, and it wasn't a good film, but what I learned from that failure was, I had to rethink how I was working. Because now I wasn't just an actor getting a role, I was being held responsible for the film itself," he added.
The actor said when he was working with Affleck on their 2012 Oscar-winning film "Argo", he advised him to decline the offer to play Batman in Zack Snyder's "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice".
"I actually did talk to him about it. I said, 'Don't do it'. It was only from my experience, which is, you know..." Clooney said.
The actor, however, believes Affleck did a "great" job with the part.
