George Clooney - Macy Uncovers Clooney's Boozy Secret

04 May 2012 01:36

William H. Macy uncovered one of George Clooney's drinking secrets when he filmed Welcome To Collinwood with the movie superstar in 2001 - he'd dump shot after shot of tequila on the ground rather than upset fans and co-stars by turning down offers of free booze.

MACy admits he was amazed by his co-stars aptitude for alcohol during a night out in Cleveland, Ohio with Clooney and couldn't believe his eyes when the Ocean's Eleven star turned up for work the following morning looking great and no worse for wear.

He recalls, "He came to do his bit; he was in it (film) for about four days... and he took us out that night and you can imagine this little bar was up for grabs and everyone wanted to buy George a drink.

"I watched him and he hammered back, I dunno, 12, 15 shots of tequila by the time I invited myself to go home and the next day the set was a mess, but George was fine... It was a lost day."

But Macy's amazement was short-lived - one friend told him all about the star's bar secret.

He adds, "Someone told me what George would do: somebody would say, 'George Clooney, I wanna buy you a drink,' and so he'd get the drink and he'd go, 'Hey' (bend over) and he would dump it on the ground and go like that (pretend to knock it back) - and nobody saw it."

Anyone remember the Lemon-cello incident with Danny Devito? He said the same thing....GC kept pouring it into the plant by the table. One way to stay sober.... Wink

I have a video saved with George and Matt Lauer interviewing George about limencello evening. I wish I could post it but I can't copy it from Bing. Computer says no

I'm sure George threw back quite a few before he started pouring the drinks out. But great story and certainly fits with George's image of Mr. Nice Guy (when fans want to buy) and prankster (DeVito).

I hope this works!! The limencello story starts at about 8:10. This is the interview for The Good German, and at the end, he gets the crown and sash for Sexiest Man Alive.
