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.

"One was working at a bar in Texas at the airport, trying just to support his family, rides a bicycle to work every day. If Rande doesn't take the million dollars, nobody gets" their money.

Gerber quoted Clooney as saying that he knew all of them had "been through some hard times, some of you are still going through it..." He went on to announce that in addition to the 1 million dollars, he had also paid all of their taxes so they wouldn't need to pay tax on the money he gifted them.

Gerber closed her statement exhibiting what Clooney stated, "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".
