George Clooney Once Gave 14 of His Friends $1 Million Each
Love him or hate him, you WANT to be GEORGE CLOONEY's friend. And here's why: George once gave 14 of his friends $1 million each!
On the MSNBC show "Headliners", George's buddy Rande Gerber told an awesome story. In 2013, George invited Rande and 13 of their other friends to his place for dinner.
When they got there, there was a suitcase waiting for each of them. George proceeded to tell them how much they all meant to him, then asked them to open their suitcases. Inside each one was a million in cash. And George told them he paid all the taxes, too.
He told them, quote, "I know we've all been through some hard times, some of you are still going through it. You don't have to worry about your kids, you don't have to worry about, you know, school, you don't have to worry about paying your mortgage."
