A few years ago, Randy Gerber, Clooney’s bestie, shocked fans when he told MSNBC that Clooney invited his group of friends to dinner and surprised him by giving him $ 1 million in cash with a suitcase. (This was long before Clooney, with Gerber and another business partner selling their Cassimos tequila brand for $ 1 billion.)
In the new GQ interview, the 59-year-old Clooney said that when he decided to give that moolah gift to all his friends, he was single, aging and with no hope for family. The actor-director is now married to wife Amal Clooney and 3-year-old twins Alexander and Ella’s father.
“And I thought, what am I do These are people who, over a period of 35 years, have helped me in one way or another, ”he said. “I slept on their couch when I was broke. They gave me money when I was broke. They helped me when I needed help over the years. And I have helped them over the years. … And I thought, you know, without them I have no such thing. “
Clooney also confirmed little about the suitcase – and said they came from the high-end luggage brand Tumi.
