George Clooney Once Gave 14 Of His Friends $1 Million Each In Cash

George Clooney is known for being one of the most handsome, and generous, men in Hollywood! Not only does he exude talent, but he exudes kindness as well!

While I already knew I'd love to be friends with George Clooney one day, I especially want to be BFF's now after learning he once gave 14 of his closest friends A MILLION BUCKS IN CASH!

George Clooney is the epitome of a true gentleman.

Not only is he an amazing actor, but he's also super philanthropic and married to powerhouse barrister Amal Clooney.

He's also friends with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which makes him very cool in my books!

Speaking to *GQ* magazine, George gave us yet another reason to be obsessed with him.

Being the great storyteller he is, George set the scene — he told the publication he was appearing in Gravity, the space thriller co-starring Sandra Bullock.

The film wasn't expected to be a hit when it was released in 2013, so instead of a salary, he revealed he was given "percentages of the movie."

Of course, the film was a HUGE success, which meant George got another LARGE lump of money!

Since the actor wasn't married (or a dad) at the time, he opted to give the money away to some of his closest friends.

"And I thought, you know, without them I don't have any of this," he explained.

"And we're all really close, and I just thought, basically, if I get hit by a bus, they're all in the will. So why the [expletive] am I waiting to get hit by a bus?"

He revealed he literally got PALLETS of cash to hand to his friends.

"And I just held up a map and I just pointed to all the places I got to go in the world and all the things I've gotten to see because of them."

"And I said, 'How do you repay people like that?' And I said, 'Oh, well: How about a million bucks?'"

No, how do I get friends like THAT?! Just kidding I love my friends, but truly, he is such a GEM!
