George Clooney once defecated in a litter tray to prank a housemate.
The 59-year-old actor is known for being a prankster on movie sets, and he has now revealed he once left his own poo in the litter tray of Richard Kind’s pet cat, after the Bombshell star allowed George to stay in his apartment when he was still a young actor going between auditions.
Speaking to Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Sean Hayes on their SmartLess podcast, George explained boredom got the better of him while he was staying in the small flat, and so he decided to play a joke on his unsuspecting friend, who failed to see the funny side of his antics.
Explaining how the prank began, he said: “He was working and I'm waiting for an audition, and I go into the bathroom and there's a kitty litter box next to the toilet and it's got cat s*** in it, and I scoop it up and I flush it down the toilet.
“And the next day, the cat takes a s***, I flush it down the toilet and Richard checks, and it goes on for like three or four or five days.”
George’s innocent prank resulted in Richard being concerned that his cat hadn’t had a bowel movement for several days, as he was unaware what George was doing with the contents of the litter tray.
And the Midnight Sky star then had a “lightbulb moment” regarding how to take the joke to the next level.
He added: “Then the light bulb goes off, and I realise what I must do ... which is take a s*** in the cat box.
“Now, there is this moment, when I'm squatted down over a cat box, where I'm going, ‘Really?!’ ”
Fortunately for Richard, the joke didn’t continue for much longer, as he realised what George had been up to when he was unable to keep a straight face any time the cat’s toilet activity was mentioned.
George said: “He realises I've been shovelling the cat s*** out and he gets madder and madder.’ [He was like], ‘I understand humour, defecation doesn't make me laugh!’”— BANG
