It literally pays to be friends with George Clooney.

Clooney has a group of 14 friends and they go by the name ‘The Boys’. Yesterday one of Clooney’s friends told the media that Clooney once called all of them home and gave $1Mn to each of them.

Rande Gerber, a businessman and longtime friend of the actor, told MSNBC’s “Headliners” that Clooney once gave 14 friends $1 million each and paid their taxes for a year.

There's a group of guys that we call ‘The Boys.' George had called me and ‘The Boys' and said, ‘Hey, mark September 27, 2013 on your calendar. Everyone's going to come to my house for dinner,” Gerber recalled.

Gerber said he and “The Boys” arrived at Clooney’s home to find black designer luggage bags at each place setting on the table. When they opened the bags, they found “a million dollars in 20 dollar bills,” E News reported.

“George begins to say, ‘Listen, I want you guys to know how much you’ve meant to me and how much you mean to me in my life,” the 55-year-old said. “‘I came to L.A., I slept on your couch. I’m so fortunate in my life to have all of you and I couldn’t be where I am today without all of you. So, it was really important to me that while we’re still all here together, that I give back. So I want you all to open your suitcases.’”

Gerber added, “Every one of us – 14 of us – got a million dollars. Every single one of us. We’re in shock.”

This happened exactly a year before Clooney married Human Rights attorney Amal Clooney.
