'The Descendants' DVD extra: George Clooney breaks silence... wind, too -- EXCLUSIVE

In The Descendants, George Clooney played a solemn lawyer who finds out that his comatose wife had been having an affair before her tragic watersport accident. But even an Academy Award nomination for playing a cuckold who is forced to reconnect with his two daughters while mourning couldn’t alter his reputation as a merry prankster. Clooney is notorious for the artful gotcha, and his tomfoolery knows no bounds – he once razzed a 90-year-old Walter Cronkite with a gag that ended with the late newsman jumping in a lake.

Working with youngsters on The Descendants only seemed to bring out his inner jester. In “Everybody Loves George,” one of the extras on the film’s DVD and Blu-ray (available Tuesday, March 13), his young co-stars describe his childish pleasure in iPhone-generated flatulence. In an airplane cabin full of extras, Clooney let rip a torrent of toots with a special app that had everyone wondering if their leading man had eaten some bad poi. “Everybody in the front is kind of looking around at each other,” says co-star Shailene Woodley. “They’re trying not to laugh because they don’t want to get in trouble.” Take a look at an exclusive clip of the DVD extra. It doesn’t stink.
