George Clooney is a known prankster – but at the 45th Annual Kennedy Center Honors, in onda dicembre. 28 on CBS — the world will be reminded just how far he’s willing to go for a laugh.

In un teaser for the 2022 Lode al Kennedy Center condiviso da E! Notizia, Matt Damon honors his friend and former costar with an unexpected speech.

It has been said that my friend George Clooney is the last of the true movie stars,” Damon, 52, says about longtime pal, Clooney, 61.

So I got to thinking about exactly what that meant. Certo, a number of past Kennedy Center honorees have certainly been movie stars in that classic sense. Actors with class and sophistication — Cary Grant, Henry Fonda, Paul Newman, Gregory Peck,” lui continua, winding up for the punchline.

And then I think of George,” Damon says. “A man who defected in Richard Kind’s kitty litter box as a joke.

Damon doesn’t stop there: “A man who once stole Bill Clinton‘s stationery and wrote fake notes to actors, saying how much the President loved their movies.

During an appearance last year on the podcast SmartLess, ospitato da Sean Hayes, Jason Bateman e Will Arnet, Clooney shared why he pooed in Kind’s cat’s litter box.

Il Ocean's Eleven actor and Kind used to be roommates, and Kind had a small cat that lived with them. As Clooney told the story, because he was bored, he began removing the cat’s poop from the litter box and flushing it down the toilet.

My little kitty. He hasn’t taken a s— in, penso, three days,” Clooney recalled Kind saying to him.

And then he takes the cat to the vet, and they give him this kitty Metamucil. And so now this little kitty is sting 15 volte al giorno, and I am scooping it all up, because I have nothing else to do,” Clooney told the Smartless equipaggio. “I have no idea why. It’s just funny.

Il Up in the Air star then said he had an epiphany.

And then after a couple of weeks, the light bulb goes off, and I realize what I must do,” Egli ha detto “I must take a sin the cat box.

Now there is this moment,” Clooney ha detto, ridendo, “when I’m squatted down over a cat box where I’m going, 'Veramente? Voglio dire, it’s funny. Va bene. But I’m not sure it’s how I want to be remembered…The cat is like six-inches long. It’s a tiny cat.

Soon Kind figures it all out and while Clooney thought it was hilarious, Kind wasn’t thrilled. “He gets madder and madder and madder,” Clooney remembers.
