Clooney praises Pitt

Los Angeles: Actor George Clooney has heaped praises on Brad Pitt and says the latter is "one of the great guys" in Hollywood. Clooney has praised Brad for being one of his best friends in the movie business, but insists they don`t hang out as much as people think they do.

"Brad is one of the great guys. We`re good friends, but it`s different from what people think - meaning we don`t spend a lot of time together. He has been to my home in Como; we motorcycle together. But until recently, I hadn`t seen Brad in a year," a website has quoted The Descendants star as saying.

George Clooney is known to be a huge prankster in Hollywood, and even played numerous pranks on Brad Pitt, especially when they filmed ‘Ocean`s Eleven’ and its sequels.

But the 50-year-old insists the 48-year-old actor has got him good on a few occasions.

"A couple of years ago, he (Pitt) really nailed me. He did one of those shows and they asked him when he was going to marry Angie, and he said, `I`ll marry when George can legally marry (a man).` He really got me badly, it`s something I have had to deal with the past few years," said Clooney.
