HOPING TO OUTDO LES DENNIS: George Clooney in the Widow Twankey outfit he will wear in Crawley's panto this Christmas


HOLLYWOOD superstar George Clooney has sensationally agreed to star in this year's pantomime at The Hawth theatre.
The star of films such as Gravity, Ocean's Eleven and Up In The Air will play Widow Twankey in a production[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] of Aladdin.
By appearing in Crawley's Christmas panto he will be following in the footsteps of previous Hawth panto favourites Julian Clary, Les Dennis and The Chuckle Brothers.
Clooney, 52, is understood to have wanted to star in a traditional British panto ever since being blown away by a performance[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] of Jack and the Beanstalk, featuring Timmy Mallett and Badger out of Bodger and Badger, in Skegness, during a boys' weekend away with A-list pals Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio.
It is understood that Clooney has even promised producers that he can persuade Matt Damon to play Aladdin and Cameron Diaz to star as Princess Jasmine.
Normally Clooney would expect to command a huge fee for such a performance.
But such is his burning desire to perform in a panto that he has agreed to perform for free.
His only demands are that his name is on promotional posters in "really big letters" and that he gets to take his Widow Twankey outfit home[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] with him at the end of each day.
A spokesman for the theatre said: "When George approached us we just couldn't say no.
"We had been hoping to secure that bloke off Fun House[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.], Pat Sharp, or Orville the Duck for the role but both were making unrealistic demands.
"Orville, in particular, was a real diva and was demanding burlesque dancers in his dressing room every night and wanted dozens of costume changes written into the script as he didn't want to wear the same nappy on stage for more than ten minutes.
"And he even asked that our restaurant only served food beginning with the letter 'O' for the duration of panto season.
"We considered it but do you realise how few foods begin with the letter O? It would have basically left us with oranges, olives and Oreo biscuits."
With Clooney signed up tickets are expected to sell fast[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] when they go on sale.
But if sales don't go as well as expected it is understood that Clooney has agreed to take his top off for anyone who buys more than two tickets.

Do you think this is true??....sounds so fake but maybe because I never heard about it. So maybe I'm wrong here...

I think it is. I read another tweet late last night that had to also be an April Fools joke.
