George Clooney gave 1 million in CASH to each of his 14 best friends. His reason in a recent GQ interview was “They’ve each helped me when I really needed it. Wow about paying it forward!
The actor next got his hands on $14m in cash at an undisclosed location in Los Angeles, “bought 14 Tumi bags”, and “packed in a million bucks, cash”, in each of them. Clooney invited his friends over the following day to give them the money.
Clooney sets the scene in his interview. He was appearing in “Gravity,” a thriller set in space costarring Sandra Bullock. The film wasn’t expected to be a hit when it was released in 2013, so Clooney said he was given “percentages of the movie” in lieu of a salary. These friends were already in his will at the time and it was before he started dating his now wife Amal Clooney.
I’ve always said that if I ever won the lottery I would host a scavenger hunt for my family and friends and hide money for them to find. But Clooney takes giving back to a whole new level.
