It is well known around these parts that Brad Pitt and George Clooney are forever in a battle over which one of them is the true King of On-Set Pranks. Just when one of them pulls the rug out from beneath the other, he trips on a well-placed banana peel and now they’re both on the ground giggling while a PA wonders if he should wait on the coffee or…? But of course game recognize game (but of course), so George Clooney could only recount one of his rival’s pranks after being asked about the best prank a costar had ever pulled on set during the reddit AMA he hosted today:

It was Brad, we were shooting Oceans 12 in my hometown in Lake Cuomo and he had a flyer sent around saying George only wants to be called by his character’s name Danny Ocean, don’t look him in the eyes, and it got into the local paper. As you know, jokes don’t translate at all, and they called me il divo, and said that I was treating the crew like shit. When it got into the paper I came downstairs and Brad had the paper in his hand, and I said “You’re mine from here on out.” Brad just said, “Please don’t harm my children.” Yeah, he’s done some pretty rotten things.

Cuh-lassic! When are these guys going to write a book? They can call it Notes from Prankerground and publish it under the name DosD’OHpransky, but each of them can write a foreword. And then Jonah Hill pulls off a mask and he’s been their publishing agent the whole time, and he throws the manuscript in a bucket of horse mess? I don’t know, I’m sure history will figure it out. Onward and prankward! (Via Pajiba.)

  1. It’s weird to me that George could operate a computer. Also my friend recently told me how he pranked Matt Damon by taking his pants in little by little to make him think he was gaining weight. I really hope he did all the tailoring himself.

  2. La worst prank Clooney ever did was Batman Y Robin.

  3. “You’re mine from here on out” is also a key line in my George Clooney/Brad Pitt slash fiction.

  4. Ahhh yes, the perfect prank says “you think I’m your friend but I really hate you.”

  5. He’s going to pretend to get arrested and then propose, isn’t he?

  6. What if the whole leaving Jennifer Aniston for Angelina Jolie and adopting a bunch of kids is all part of an ongoing prank Brad has been pulling? I wouldn’t put it past him, that guy is such a jokester.

  7. George Clooney is so charming. Holy hell. Also: He shit in Richard Kind’s cat’s litter box. #PRANKS

  8. That isn’t the best prank he’s ever been pranked. I’ve played WAY better pranks on him in the fantasy world where I hang out in a coffee shop and have fun times with George Clooney and Terry Crews and Jennifer Lawrence and we’re all BFFs.
