article imageGeorge Clooney surprises German diner by paying for his dinner

By Anne Sewell     Jan 29, 2013 in Entertainment
Berlin - It happened in a fancy Berlin restaurant, where George Clooney paid for the meal of a German businessman to "apologize" for the noise made by himself and his friends.
Worrying that their party had been a little too loud, Clooney called over the waiter and paid the bill of the businessman, dining at the Grill Royal Restaurant.
The businessman was stunned when he went to pay his 100 euro bill, only to find out that Clooney had already paid it. He was told that Clooney was afraid that his party had been too noisy and had disturbed the patron's meal.
"That's not true at all. They had behaved in a very cultivated manner. I was stunned," Oliver Hermann told the Bild newspaper in Germany.
The funny thing was, when Hermann left his business card at Clooney's table, hoping to return the favor one day, he did not even recognize the Oscar-winning star of "The Descendants." It was only after leaving the restaurant that he suddenly realized who had paid for his meal.
Clooney is currently in Berlin preparing to shoot his latest movie, "The Monuments Men", co-starring with Cate Blanchet, Matt Damon and Bill Murray. The movie is based on the historical non-fiction work “The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History” by Robert M. Edsel.
The Wrap tells us that the story is about a hand-picked group of art experts chosen by the US government to retrieve artwork stolen by the Nazis. Sounds like it could be an interesting film.
The Local is reporting that thousands of Berliners were out in the streets in the freezing cold over the weekend, hoping for a part as an extra in the movie.
