In a recent GQ interview, George Clooney revealed that he gave 14 of his close friends $1 million USD for helping him out during his grind to stardom.
Clooney elaborated with: “I was a single guy. All of us were aging. I was 52 or something. And most of my friends are older than me. And I thought, what I do have are these guys… I’ve slept on their couches when I was broke. They loaned me money when I was broke. They helped me when I needed help over the years… And I thought, you know, without them I don’t have any of this.” While his close friends were already in his will, he realized that there was no need to wait until something tragic happened to him before paying back his friends stating, “I just thought basically if I get hit by a bus, they’re all in the will, so why the f*ck am I waiting to get hit by a bus?”
The actor also divulges that $14 million USD in cash isn’t actually that physically big, explaining that he was able to fit all the cash in a few Tumi bags. Moving it around was the actual hard part as he was worried about being robbed. In the end, he, an assistant, and a few speechless security guards were able to transport the cash in a van that looked like a florist’s delivery van.
