  • George Clooney gave $1 million to his friends in 2013 but it was revealed only recently

He recalled Clooney telling "The Boys", "I came to L.A., I slept on your couch".

With that said, he instructed everyone to open their suitcases. He also told the gathering he had paid their taxes for a year.

This story was recounted Wednesday by Rande Gerber, Clooney's friend and Casamigos partner (and Cindy Crawford's husband), on MSNBC's Headliners,ET reports.

Inside each case was $1 million in $20 bills, says Gerber.

Gerber pointed out that Clooney's generosity certainly paid off for him, noting that the went on to marry his wife, human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, on September 27, 2014 - just a year after his good deed. "So I want you all to open your suitcases, '" Clooney said, according to Gerber.

George and Amal Clooney took out a very particular insurance policy on a recent transatlantic flight.

Popular Hollywood actor George Clooney has been so grateful to his close friends that he once gave them $1 million each.
