George Clooney pays stranger's restaurant bill


Generous George Clooney covered a fellow diner's bill at a German restaurant in Berlin last week over concerns his party may have been too rowdy.

The actor, who is currently in Germany preparing to shoot new movie "The Monuments Men," had been enjoying a meal at the Grill Royal on Friday when he discreetly picked up a stranger's $134.66 check.

Shocked by the generous gesture, the unidentified patron left his business card at the actor's table in the hopes of one day being able to return the favor, only to later realize the man was Hollywood star Clooney.

Afterwards he spoke to local newspaper Bild to ease the Oscar winner's conscience, insisting the 51-year-old and his pals had been no trouble at all. He is quoted as saying, "That's not true at all. They had behaved in a very cultivated manner. I was stunned."

I have been the recipient of such a gift once. It was a rainy day and a day you just had to be a bit goofy on. Me and my daughter went into a restaurant having a good ol' time and when it came time to pay, the waitress failed to give me the bill and wouldn't even accept a tip. It took me a few moments to realize what has happened and to this day I would still like to know what went through that persons mind.
