My advice to everyone today…get a friend who has potential to become a millionaire and help them out, a lot. Cause it could pay off down the road. George Clooney has just confirmed that he once gave 14 of his closest friends a million dollars each. The money was a profit from his 2013 movie Gravity which ended up being more successful than anyone thought. His reason, at the time he was single and had no plans on having kids so according to George  “I thought, what I do have are these guys who’ve all, over a period of 35 years, helped me in one way or another. I’ve slept on their couches when I was broke” and adds that they loaned him money over the years so he wanted to help them out. Oh, and the best part of the story, he had to pick up the money at an undisclosed location in LA where they had pallets of cash and hand deliver it from the back of a van that had “Florist” written on it.
