9 times George Clooney's AMA proved he's the smoothest man in Hollywood

He’s actually gas, who knew?

GEORGE CLOONEY WAS the latest celeb to face the Reddit community and say ‘Ask Me Anything’.

They asked him. They asked him anything. George just, yet again, proved that he’s the suavest sonuva Hollywood has ever seen.

1. He’s alone, but not lonely

When asked why he has such lonely eyes, George doesn’t want your sympathy.

I actually have only one lonely eye. The other eye’s got nothin’ but friends.


2. He can still kick ass at sports

He may not be getting any younger, but he can still keep up with the best of them. One Redditor asked if a story about him beating Leonardo DiCaprio at basketball was true.

It’s true. That was a fun day. It’s always fun when you play people younger than you and win. We’re playing a bunch of six year olds tomorrow.

3. He can cobble Daniel Day Lewis under the table

When a question about his secret hobby revealed it to be cobbling, Clooney boasts that he’s better at it than Daniel Day Lewis.
Let me just tell you this. When Daniel Day-Lewis was spending all his time playing Lincoln, I was just fixing shoes. He’s spending all the time focused on the hat, and the pipe, and getting into character, and I remained focused – with the overalls and the hammer.

4. He can laugh at himself… and others

When asked what he thought of this Golden Globes joke at his expense, he showed nothing but empathy. Oh George.


Usually it’s pretty funny. You know I got really good by Tina and Amy the other day and I’m working on getting them back in a big way. Shows like that are designed to have fun with you without being devastatingly unkind. I’ve been the target of a couple of stupid jokes that didn’t work, but in general I’ve only seen a couple that were really vicious toward people, and they didn’t work. When they don’t work you feel badly for the person doing it.


5. Playing the voice of a gay dog meant a lot to him

When asking about his ground-breaking role of Sparky the dog on South Park (where he did little more than barking and growling) George had this to say:

Sparky the gay dog? It was sort of a surprise for me, I mean, here’s something odd, I had never played a dog before. To finally play Sparky the dog was something that I think pretty much completed my career.


6. Brad Pitt now lives in fear of him

When asked about the best prank a crew member ever played on him…

It was Brad, we were shooting Oceans 12 in my hometown in Lake Como and he had a flier sent around saying George only wants to be called by his character’s name Danny Ocean, don’t look him in the eyes, and it got into the local paper. As you know, jokes don’t translate at all, and they called me il divo, and said that I was treating the crew like shit. When it got into the paper I came downstairs and Brad had the paper in his hand, and I said “You’re mine from here on out.”Brad just said, “Please don’t harm my children.”

7. His perfect sandwich is a lady one

So what, in his eyes, makes the perfect sandwich?

The perfect sandwich would be… I want to come up with two gorgeous actresses but I won’t do that.


8. He takes the mick out of his friends

Poor Sandra Bullock. When asked to give a funny Gravity anecdote, George opens with…

It’s tricky cause Sandy drinks so much that oftentimes it’s just hard to keep her upright.

He’s kidding!

Every time we’re together it’s funny. She’s somebody I adore, really, she’s just fun to be in a room with.

9. He gets morto too, like a mere mortal

The only thing he’s ever been embarrassed about? The nipples in the Batsuit.

You figure all batsuits have nipples and then you realize yours was really the first. Batman was just constantly cold I guess.
