George Clooney Hilariously Claps Back at ‘Pretty Boy’ Brad Pitt For Calling Him the Most Handsome Man in the World

Ah, bromance. You gotta love it. Especially when it happens between two charming celebrities. We’re talking about George Clooney and Brad Pitt, who are apparently best friends…or frenemies?

Pitt recently sent the internet into a tizzy when he named Clooney as one of the most handsome men in the world. He didn’t just do so out of the blue. Vogue Magazine asked the Bullet Train star to name the most handsome men in the world, past or present. After thinking for a moment, Pitt responded, “I gotta name that George Clooney motherfucker.” (Tell us how you really feel, Brad!)

Clooney was given the opportunity to clap back during a recent appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert when asked about being named most handsome man in the world.

Clooney, who called his pal “Pretty Boy Pitt,” humbly said, “I too think that I am the most handsome man.”

As if that wasn’t a good-enough jab, Clooney added, “I will say that I think his first answer was himself and then someone said, ‘Let’s do that again. Don’t say yourself.’” (Which could totally be true. We could definitely see that happening.)

Clooney got one more joke in, when Colbert asked about a forthcoming, still-untitled Apple Studios film in which the two BFFs star – and for which the dynamic duo took pay cuts for in order to ensure a theatrical release.

“Why is it important for you to be on the big silver, as we say?” Colbert asked.

“That’s actually my nickname: Big Silver,” Clooney teased.

“When you were a stripper,” Colbert clarified.

“Yes,” Clooney said. “Boom Boom Silver.”

At this point, we really don’t even need another Clooney-Pitt collaboration. We’d just like to watch them roast each other indefinitely on the internet.
