It was in 2017 when it began to be rumored that George Clooney had given one million dollars -which would be equivalent to 842,000 euros- to his fourteen best friends. But until today it has been just a rumor.
Now the actor has been in charge of giving truth to the rumor in an interview with the US edition of the magazine ‘GQ’ thus confirming that in addition to being one of the most handsome men in the world, he is also one of the most generous.
The story goes back to 2013, when the actor was part of the filming of ‘Gravitiy’, a project that raised more than 730 million euros and for which it received a part of the collection. As he himself has said, it was then that he came up with the idea of thanking his friends any help given in the past.
“I slept on their couches when it was broke. They loaned me money when I was bankrupt. They helped me when I needed it for 35 years. We are all good friends, “he confessed. Clooney raised 14 million dollars -one for each friend- and bought an old truck belonging to a florist to put all the money there. “I bought 14 Tumi bags and then I packed a million dollars, cash, which is not as much as you think, in terms of weight “.
Apparently, in addition to taking care of pay the corresponding fees so that his friends could enjoy the full million tax free, he also dedicated some precious words to them: “Listen, I want you to know how much you mean to me and how much I love you in my life. I came to Los Angeles and I had your sofa to sleep on. I am very lucky to have you in my life. Some of you are going through hard times and I I want to tell you that you don’t have to worry about your children’s school or to pay the mortgage. “
