Matt Damon took time out of his busy schedule of being the world’s nicest famous dude to sit down for a Reddit AMA.
Damon talked The Monuments Men, his charity, Ben Affleck’s charity, the Red Sox and the fact that George Clooney is a great guy but a total prick when it comes to pulling pranks. Clooney’s pranks are legendary in Hollywood and he’s relentless when it comes to screwing with his friends.
Damon explains how Clooney stuck it to him just last week.
Hey Matt, what was the best prank George played on you?
He just did one literally last week. I got these giant fruit baskets in the mail from Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. They had just made jokes at everyone’s expense at the Golden Globes that were really funny. George made up stationary with my name on it, and sent a really wounded letter to Tina and Amy saying my feelings were really hurt, how could they do this, etc. So they sent two fruit baskets. One had a letter with an apology. Another said “If this is part of some Clooney prank, please know that we’re grown-a** comedians, and you have to do a little better to fool us.” So I photographed the letters and emailed them to George with a caption that said “Go f*** yourself.” He’s honestly a child. I can just see his shoulders shaking when he laughs alone in his house.
Clooney and that pet pig just having the biggest god damn chuckle about the fruit baskets. Life is good.
