What can I say … Clooney himself is not without sin when it comes to daring pranks!
When it comes to Hollywood’s biggest jokers, anyone would agree that George Clooney is second to none. Calling a friend in the middle of the night, pretending to be an ambulance employee, or giving your best friend a picture picked up in a garbage dump, passing it off as his own work – Clooney can do all this without batting an eye. And often the heroes of his pranks are famous friends – in particular Matt Damon and Brad Pitt. The competition for originality with Pitt began when Clooney pasted a nasty sticker on his car. Pitt did not remain in debt and, for example, played a friend on the set of the film “Ocean’s 12” in Italy, after which Clooney even got the nickname “Il Divo” (star). Clooney recalled this case in a new video interview with the American GQ.
We filmed a few scenes on Lake Como, where I live. And Brad sent out the leaflets – to all the people in the city, in my city, where I lived for several years at that time. And Brad put this on literally every telephone pole. It said: “The film is filming” Ocean’s 12 “in the city. Please contact George Clooney only as” Mr. Clooney “or” Danny Ocean “, that is the name of his hero. And do not look him directly in the eyes.” This was followed by newspapers with the headlines “The Star. George Clooney is the Star.” It was just awful, but then I took revenge on him.
How exactly Clooney took revenge on Pitt, he did not elaborate further, but it is known that once the actor ordered a package for Pitt directly to the set with the inscription “The porn you ordered”. Also known is another draw of Clooney – only this time over Matt Damon. Once, George and Matt went on a diet together and worked hard to lose weight. However, the mischievous Clooney secretly took Damon’s sweatpants and slowly sewed them in. According to Matt, he didn’t immediately understand what the catch was:
I trained to wear, and my pants were getting narrower. “It cannot be!” I thought. But I didn’t say anything to him, which, in my opinion, gave him even more pleasure.
One of the heroines of Clooney’s pranks was his “Gravity” partner Sandra Bullock: George and his friends persuaded the actress to jump into the pool with them on the count of “three” – as a result, only Sandra was in the water, and the jokers were laughing at her, standing on the side …
Once also got to the housekeeper George and Amal Clooney. On the air of the show Good Morning Britain, George said:
I was filming a television project in Italy and one day, after returning home, I decided to have some fun. I took a clean diaper, smeared it with Nutella and threw it into the trash can. About an hour later I returned to the room and said to the housekeeper: “Amal asks, did Alexander do ka-ka or pee?” She did not understand me, no matter how many times I repeated these phrases. Then I took a diaper from the basket, opened it so that she could see the contents, and buried my face in it, and then I also tasted it. She screamed and rushed out of the room. In general, you understand, I can teach my children a lot.
