A Betting Man
2001: Now that George Clooney has celebrated his fortieth birthday and remained a bachelor he can collect on his bets. It’s been well publicized that Nicole Kidman and Michele Pfeiffer each bet George ten thousand dollars that he’d be married before he hit forty. When it didn’t happen, George reminded the girls of their wager. Nicole immediately sent him a check for ten thousand dollars. George mailed it back with a note saying “How about double or nothing? Check with me when I’m fifty!” Presumably Michele will let it ride as well.
