George Clooney is a Hollywood star that men want to be like and women want to be with. He’s good looking, has a lovely and accomplished wife, and loves to have fun. It’s clear he cares deeply about his friends and family, particularly a group of men he hangs out with known as the boys. All of these men, some of whom are famous and some of whom are not so famous, have been friends and have supported each other since before Clooney was a star, and long before he was named most eligible bachelor.
There have been numerous stories about how loyal he is to his friends and how far he will go to protect them, including a famous story about how he created a fake wedding for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to throw off the paparazzi. Randy Garber, a friend of Clooney’s and a member of The Boys who is married to Cindy Crawford, told E!News just how generous Clooney can be.
According to Garber, Clooney invited all of the Boys to dinner at his house in September of 2013 and offered them a surprise. After dinner, Clooney gave each of them a briefcase and after thanking them for helping him in his early years. He then had them open the briefcase to reveal that he had given each of them $1 million in cash. Garber initially refused the money because he didn’t need it, but Clooney insisted that they all take the money or none of them would get it. Some of the men could really use the money, so Garber took it and donated his share to charity.
This kind of generosity is one of the reasons why so many people love and admire Clooney. He’s a great example of the kind of person every man should aspire to be. If more men were like George Clooney the world would be a much better place.
