But we had no idea he was such a baller!!
In a recent interview, the silver fox opened up about a friendly pickup game of basketball he played with Leonard DiCaprio and some of his buddies!
"And the discrepancy between their game and how they talked about their game made me think of how important it is to have someone in your life to tell you what's what."
Translation: They did NOT have the skills to pay the bills!!
In fact, despite their claims that they would "kick ass," it was George that did the booty kicking as he ended up winning 11-0!!
Wowzers! Look out Kobe Bryant! It looks like there's another baller in Hollywood!
So what did we learn here? If you're going to challenge George Clooney to a pickup game of basketball, you might want to keep your mouth shut!
