Does a friendship have a price?. If we had to put a cost to those moments in which our best friend or our great friend were with us unconditionally and without asking for anything in return; we could do it?. Not us, but George Clooney, his humility and his huge heart if they could do it.
And it is that the talented actor, who gave life to the Bat Man in Batman y Robin and one of the leaders of The Big Scam, never forgot his origins; nor of his great friends from childhood. Neither will they ever forget about him? In fact, They have 14 million green reasons not to!.
Already consecrated as an actor of Hollywood and a real heartthrob, the ex ER Emergencies cited one day in 2013 at his mansion to 14 of his great friends of childhood, the one they shared in Kentucky. And that gesture already speaks for itself of the human quality of Clooney: he never forgot who he was and where he came from, and he didn’t let fame get him down.
The reunion combined everything a reunion of old friends should have: memories, anecdotes (of those that are repeated ad nauseam, but never tire), laughs and all the jobs Clooney and his friends went through. But, for the closing, the best was missing and that would leave George’s open-mouthed friends.
After so much talk and remembering golden years together, the actor asked his friends to come to the dining room; to continue the encounter on a full stomach. And it was at that moment that the 14 friends of George Clooney They came across something unexpected: next to each seat was a closed briefcase.
I want you to know how much you meant to me. I got to Los Angeles, I slept on their couch. I am very lucky. I couldn’t be where I am today without all of you. It’s really important to me that as long as we’re together, I return the favor. So I want you to open the briefcases ??, said Clooney.
And the mystery became something much more worthy of any of his films; as the unexpected twist placed his friends with a million dollars in your hands in minutes. That was the content of the briefcases, and they were the 14 recipients.
We all go through tough times, some of you are still going through it. You don’t have to worry about your kids, you don’t have to worry, you know, about school, you don’t have to worry about paying your mortgage, ”George added.
Among those present, surprise was mixed with disbelief. To such an extent that some of his friends tried to decline the gift. Among them was the businessman and also a millionaire Verge Gerber. At Cloone’s insistence, Gerber accepted it – and then donated it to charity.
