George Clooney has reportedly gifted 14 of his closest friends with $1 million each to help them through tough times.
Clooney reportedly decided to share his wealth with his best pals to show them how grateful he was for their love and support.
One of the lucky recipients was his business partner Rande Gerber, who spoke about this.
Gaber said: “There’s a group of guys that we call ‘The Boys’. “George had called me and ‘The Boys’ and said, ‘Hey, mark September 27, 2013, on your calendar. Everyone’s going to come to my house for dinner’.”
Rande continued, “George begins to say, ‘Listen, I want you guys to know how much you’ve meant to me and how much you mean to me in my life. I came to L.A., I slept on your couch. I’m so fortunate in my life to have all of you and I couldn’t be where I am today without all of you. So, it was really important to me that while we’re still all here together, that I give back. So I want you all to open your suitcases. Every one of us – 14 of us – got a million dollars. Every single one of us.
“He goes, ‘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,’” he recalled, revealing one of the guys had been working at an airport bar in Texas to try and provide for his family.
The story emerges as George and Amal are back in the headlines for reportedly giving out noise-cancelling headphones to fellow passengers on a recent flight to the U.K. to apologize in advance for their babies’ crying.
Clooney has definitely set the bar really high for good friends, especially in this season of giving and Accelerate is taking a cue with our ongoing 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways. You should join and win something too.
