"He's a friend of mine and we have a really good time together," he added. "I'm really looking forward to it." JosiahW / BACKGRID The two long-time friends have not been shy about trading jabs and compliments about each other in the past, with Pitt calling Clooney one of the "most handsome men in the world" in an interview with Vogue in September. "If I was gonna name someone present, well I gotta name that George Clooney f—er because why not?" he said. "Because usually, I'm always taking him out, and he's always taking me out." Clooney agreed in an interview on CBS This Morning: "He's right about that. Let's face it. He's right." "Well, I do have some things to say about him and it will include the word f—er in it, apparently, since he used that about me," he added. "I would say that I too think that I am the most handsome man in the world."
