After Tina Fey made a Golden Globes joke about George Clooney and the age of the women he likes to date, the Hollywood prankster planned his revenge, with the help of some Matt Damon stationery. That was just one of the many anecdotes Clooney shared with EW Radio during the Monuments Men Town Hall, which airs Friday at 1 p.m. ET on Sirius XM 105. People and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle led the talk, which included Clooney and Monuments Men co-stars Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Bob Balaban, and Hugh Bonneville.
In addition to their pranking behavior, the group also revealed what they would be doing if they weren’t acting (someone needs to remind Matt Damon that he already is a writer – an Oscar-winning one!). The movie, which opens Friday, is inspired by the true story of a group of museum directors, curators, and art historians who entered Germany at the end of World War II to rescue artwork taken by the Nazis. Oscar winners Cate Blanchett and Jean DuJardin also star.
During the chat on Wednesday, Clooney revealed he sent a fake letter to Tina Fey and co-host Amy Poehler, seemingly from Damon, asking for an apology for his own Globes dig about being considered the “garbageman” in the room. When Damon later received two large fruit baskets at his home, he knew something was up. Watch the clip below to get the full story:
