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.

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".

George told them: "I'm just going to make one announcement".

"That's good karma right there", Gerber noted.

"The Boys" included both wealthy men and men who fit more under the "struggling artist" category, as Clooney once did, Gerber said.
