On a day when the news that an Indian Trail man (no, not Tanner) won a lottery jackpot, I was thinking, “How could I get lucky like this?”

Then, I see an entirely different lottery:  being George Clooney’s friend.

In an interview with GQ, he tells a story of how he decided to give his 14 closest friends $1 million each in 2013.  He says he was loaded with cash at the time after making “Gravity” and, “I’ve slept on their couches when I was broke. They loaned me money when I was broke. They helped me when I needed help over the years. And I’ve helped them over the years. We’re all good friends. And I thought, you know, without them I don’t have any of this. And we’re all really close, and I just thought basically if I get hit by a bus, they’re all in the will. So why the [heck] am I waiting to get hit by a bus?”

Now here comes the REALLY cool part.  Clooney says he went to some location in LA where they have “pallets of cash” and loaded up fourteen bags with a million in each in a van with florist markings.

The friends arrived to his home and received the next day.

George Clooney on His Brush with Death, Picking Proper Fights, and Turning into a Wife Guy

George Clooney had neck surgery this morning, and they gave him fentanyl. "I'm out of it now," he says, not seeming out of it at all. Clooney shows me the neck brace they sent him home with. It's the typical big white priest's collar thing, which he has decided not to wear, except when he needs some sympathy.
