George Clooney is a lousy gambler according to Matt Damon

Post by Katiedot on Mon Aug 08 2011, 15:16

This is another old story that I just came across:

From wenn
George Clooney Is Mr. Bad Luck Says Matt Damon

George Clooney spent downtime from filming heist comedy Ocean's Eleven trying to kick his gambling bad luck in Las Vegas - and failed miserably. Co-star Matt Damon joined unlucky Clooney in Vegas' top casinos and couldn't believe what he saw. He says, "He's the unluckiest guy at a table by far. I sat there and watched him lose 25 straight hands of blackjack in a row. After about 10 hands I was saying, 'You have to win. You're gonna win a hand,' but he kept saying 'I can't win at cards, it's just something.'

Eventually he ran out of money so he said, 'Can I take out a marker?' and they wouldn't give him one and he said, 'I have a lot of money, I should have a marker,' and they said, 'Do you have ID?'"

Damon ended up lending his pal $600, which he lost, and now the young actor regrets being so generous. He adds, "The next morning I woke up and there's an envelope under my door and there's a check in it from George - I thought, 'It's not like my friends from back home.'

But in the little memo section in the check, which is where you write what it's for, George wrote 'for lap dances,' so if I was gonna cash the check it was gonna make it look like I had been lap dancing for Clooney."

You know what they say, unlucky at cards, lucky at love. And all things considered, he is pretty lucky at "love" (not "real love" but what seems to pass for it in today's market.

I thought the memo on the check said "for services rendered." But lap dancing is just as funny.

If I remember correctly, Gee didn't sign the check though. Matt said that in an intervirew w/ Gee that was showed on Youtube, I think.

LOL @ the memo line.

Poor Matt, you know he's been the butt of many Clooney/Pitt jokes. Lol

I think he is man enough to make it a draw, and SK wouldn't really want to win the match, just the guy. At least I would and a nude wrestle would really do it for me.
