George Clooney loves an ole prank, we know that - sure we only talked about him giving Matt Damon a pretty debilitating complex last week. And we know Brad Pitt also enjoys the odd jape, that's invariably why they're mates, but this particular burn is worth bringing to attention.

It won't surprise you to hear George is currently promoting a film (The Monuments Men) so he's been getting on down on different sites, like Reddit, to connect with potential cinema goers. Here's what he had to say:

"We were shooting Ocean's 12 in my hometown in Lake Como, and he had a flier sent around saying George only wants to be called by his character's name Danny Ocean, don't look him in the eyes. 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 s–t. 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."

The next time you prank Pitt, George, could it involve some form of public nudity? Thanking you.
