George Clooney is an American actor, director, producer, businessman and philanthropist who has shown his open heart by giving his best friends 1 million dollars each, after paying their taxes
George’s best friend, Rande Gerber revealed on a recent episode of MSNBC’s Headliners that back in 2013, George did not only pay 14 of his closest friends’ taxes for the year, he also gave them $1 million each.
Gerber recalled that:
“There’s a group of guys that we call ‘The Boys.’ George had called me and ‘The Boys’ and said, ‘Hey, mark September 27, 2013 on your calendar. Everyone’s going to come to my house for dinner.”
As George’s dinner guests arrived, they all found black suitcases on their spots round a table, then George shared a special message to the men who helped him early in his career.
Rande also explained that:
“George begins to say, ‘Listen, I want you guys to know how much you’ve meant to me and how much you mean to me in my life. I came to L.A., I slept on your couch.
“I’m so fortunate in my life to have all of you and I couldn’t be where I am today without all of you. So, it was really important to me that while we’re still all here together, that I give back. So I want you all to open your suitcases.”
The suitcases included $1 million each.
“Every one of us—14 of us—got a million dollars. Every single one of us. We’re in shock. Like, what is this? .
“I know we’ve all been through some hard times, some of you are still going through it. You don’t have to worry about your kids, you don’t have to worry about, you know, school, you don’t have to worry about paying your mortgage”, George said” .
And George also said,
“Not only that, I have paid everyone’s taxes so this million dollars is yours.”
Gerber shared this story as an attestation to Clooney’s character, saying “This is who George is”
