George Clooney gave 14 friends $1m each - can you be that generous?

The actor added that while they were all gathered together, it was important for him to return the favor and asked the men to open their respective suitcases. Every one of us - 14 of us - got $1 million.

'We're in shock. Like, what is this? Clooney then said, "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"'.

"One of them works at a bar in Texas, struggling to make and provide for his family". I mean these are guys that took care of George and now he's giving it all back, ' the businessman said. "I pulled him aside and said, "I absolutely am not taking this million dollars", Gerber said.
