George Clooney Gifted 14 Friends $1M Each
This is so cool. In 2013, George Clooney invited 14 of his closest friends to his home to say thank you for having helped him throughout his career. He used to sleep on these guys’ couches when he was first starting. To top off his gratitude, George gave his 14 friends black suitcases… which were filled with cash. ONE MILLION DOLLARS, in fact. Also, he paid taxes on all $14M so his friends got the full million. Cindy Crawford’s husband was one of those people… and he didn’t want to accept the gift… so George made an announcement that said if he didn’t take it, no one got the million… so the guy accepted and donated it to charity.
