There’s a group of guys that we call ‘The Boys.’ George had called me and The Boys and said ‘Hey, mark 27 September, 2013, on your calendar. Everyone’s going to come to my house for dinner.’
When they came to his house for dinner, they found suitcases on each chair on the dining table.
According to Gerber:
“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. 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’”
They opened the suitcases to find each containing a million dollars in $20 denominations. Gerber further revealed Clooney, whose wife Amal is a human rights lawyer, refused to be turned down and urged them to take all the money, saying:
“He goes ‘I know we’ve all been through some hard times, some of you are still going through it. 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.”
In additional to this generous act, Clooney paid the taxes of all 14 of them for a full year.
