Over 2 decades after the hit Ocean’s Eleven film, Brad Pitt and George Clooney are reuniting on television for Apple TV+’s thriller series, Wolfs. The story follows 2 fixers hired to do the same job. Aside from starring, Pitt and Clooney are also producing the film
Collaborating after the Ocean’s trilogy, the duo, sharing a set again, have decided to continue a tradition that they started during their Ocean’s days. Clooney and Pitt have gotten each other in a lot of trouble, even getting the cops pulled on the Troy star, leading to a rivalry as legendary as the duo’s bromance on set.
The Cops pulled over Brad Pitt, thanks to Geroge Clooney
Brad Pitt and George Clooney had already started a prank war with each other, while the latter even pranked Matt Damon, putting an ad of the actor dressed in just speedos as a consideration for People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive.
However, Clooney has caused enough of a stink for Brad Pitt that he got pulled over by the Cops as a direct result of the prank. It started with Pitt, who had already started the prank war with Clooney by putting up posters that the actor insisted on being called Danny Ocean rather than his real name (something that was reported on by the trades).
Clooney, in return, decided to get Pitt in trouble with the cops. The Batman and Robin actor slapped a bumper sticker on Pitt’s car, which had the image of a cannabis leaf with the phrase ‘F*** Cops’ written on it. Of course, needless to say, the actor was caught by cops and had to explain to them the nature of the prank and his friendship with Geroge Clooney.
George Clooney enlisted Meryl Streep, without her knowledge
George Clooney played one of the most hilarious practical jokes on Brad Pitt, and he got Meryl Streep in on it (who did not know until years later). Clooney used Brad Pitt’s stationery to write her a letter, involving no less than 60 voice coach CDs.
The note read, according to Clooney on Image:
“Dear Meryl, I hear you’re going to play the Iron Lady. This guy helped me with my accent in Troy”
Of course, Troy was one of Pitt’s most critically and commercially panned films, based on the Ancient Greek epic Illiad, by Homer. The film is considered one of the most panned historical dramas and allegedly marked the end of the swords and sandals genre in Hollywood. Streep was not aware of the fact that this was a prank until years later when Clooney revealed to her what actually happened.
