George Clooney can be so awful!
And we mean that in the nicest way.
The Oscar winner is a legendary prankster. But even we were surprised when he revealed his favorite prank to pull on his costars.
"I do enjoy whenever an actor's trying to lose weight having the wardrobe people take in their clothes," Clooney told me BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards, where he was given the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film.
"It just makes me laugh, watching them eating like a grape the next day," he said. "And they do it for weeks. It's good fun."

Julia Roberts presented Clooney with his BAFTA Award.
"There are two obvious reasons why I was chosen to do this," Roberts said "One, Brad Pitt was out of town," she said in her remarks on stage. "Two, Matt Damon, he's in town but he was unavailable. I consider George a friend. We have worked together in many capacities. We have acted together a few times. He's been my producer and my director, all of which he is immeasurably gifted at. He's handsome, he's talented, he is an exemplary humanitarian and a gifted prankster."
Earlier in the evening, Clooney warned that Roberts should be careful about what she planned to say because he's set to present her with a couple of honors in the next few weeks.
"I will take her down," he cracked, adding, "She has to walk a little on eggshells with me right now."
