There has never been a better time to ask who your friends are? Or rather, who your rich friends are?
Well, if it were George Clooney, then you would be a millionaire out of the blue.
The actor admitted to gifting 14 of his closest friends N380m each for their kindness and help when he was in need.
In a candid interview with GQ for the Men Of The Year issue, the actor confirmed rumours about his giveaway back in 2013 and even shared how he got his hands on the huge amount of money.
The actor said:
"We are all good friends and I thought, without them, I don’t have any of this. And we are all really close. I thought if I get hit by a bus, they are all in the will. So why the f*** am I waiting to get hit by a bus?"
The 59-year-old said he got the cash at a classified place in Los Angeles, US, and bought 14 luxury luggage bags which he then transported the cash in.
The actor then rented an untidy van branded "Florist" and noted that the cash was not as heavy as many would expect.
His assistant and some security guys were the ones who lost their minds while he kept his cool. He invited his friends over the next day.
He showed them all a map of the places he had seen around the world and said that if it were not for their generosity in different ways and at different times, it would have never happened.And he said:
"How do you repay people like that? And I said, ‘Oh, well: How about a million bucks?’"
The thespian said he was not expecting to have a family at the time, aged 52, and had got a huge payday after earning profits from the movie Gravity.
The movie star is married to human-rights lawyer Amal Clooney and they are blessed with twins.
