Someone should tell George Clooney that if you’re going to play a prank on someone, don’t announce it to the whole world.

George appears on Graham Norton’s talk show sofa this week and has revealed he’s going to play a prank on Brad Pitt that’ll get him arrested.

But it’s OK folks, George’s wife is a lawyer and can surely bust him out prison. Woah surely what ever the joke is about is a little too far for his on-going feud with Brad?


“I'm not sure how it started but we have done some terrible things to each other,” he revealed during the interview. “I had some stationery made up with his name on and would then send letters to other actors from Brad Pitt. I sent Meryl Streep a letter from him with a whole stack of dialect coach CDs saying that they may help her for her role in the Iron Lady."

Claiming that Brad and his victims often don’t realise they’ve been pranked until a year or two down the line, he claimed that his current practical joke may have more serious consequences.

“I’m doing one now that I can’t tell you about but in a year you are going to hear I’ve been arrested – I’m not kidding because I think I’ve crossed the line,” he joked. “It’s exciting. But, I have a wife, she’s a barrister, I'll be fine!”

OK great, so you may have been pranked by George Clooney – but you’ll never know.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Hugh Laurie, Britt Robertson, Jessica Hynes, and Snoop Dogg are also appearing on Graham’ show to be aired this Friday, BBC One, 10.35pm.

George is such a prankster he also tied himself to talk show host David Letterman – during the show:
