George Clooney thinks farts are funny

Posted on

TimestormFurther proof that George Clooney can say or do just about anything and still be the most charming, handsome, desirable, talented man on the planet: In an interview in the latest issue of Rolling Stone, which he graces the cover of, the Oscar-winner talks about — among other things, including his relationship with Stacy Keibler, growing up in a famous family, and when he lost his virginity — farts. And, because it’s Clooney, the whole thing is impossibly irresistible. (Honestly, when they inevitably make a movie about him that stars some sort of Jon Hamm/Michael Fassbender/Ryan Gosling debonair-handsomeness hybrid, they’d might as well call it I Don’t Know How He Does It.)

In the candid chat, the Ides of March and Descendants star, reveals that farts (yes, farts) can send the world’s classiest man into hysterics. “[My friends and I] think it’s one of the funniest things in the history of mankind. Even the idea of a fart makes me laugh. Saying the word ‘fart’ makes me laugh. I have iFart on my phone. I have remote whoopee cushions. Farts. To me, there’s nothing funnier.” Clooney also notes that the word “Johnson” can make him laugh, but we can’t stop giggling at the notion of the world’s biggest star losing it over gas. (Heh, gas.)

Does the fact that actor/writer/director/activist/world leader in handsomeness George Clooney gets a kick out of farts make you like him even more? Could anyone else in Hollywood pull that off? (Answer: No.)
