George Clooney thinks the word ‘Johnson’ is hilarious, and other revelations from his Rolling Stone interview

The suave silver fox told Rolling Stone the word “always” makes him chuckle. (I’m betting he would really love this story about Justin Bieber’s snake.)

This is not the only revelation in the interview that may surprise those who know Clooney only as a dashing film star. For example, he really enjoys jokes about flatulence.

“Even the idea of a fart makes me laugh. Saying the word 'fart' makes me laugh. I have iFart on my phone. I have remote whoopee cushions. Farts. To me, there's nothing funnier.”

Clooney also shares an extremely personal detail: the age he lost his virginity. The actor said he was 16 and “too young.”

As for girlfriend Stacy Keibler, Clooney doesn’t seem to mind that she sends tweets that allude to their time together, while never mentioning his name. “She can do whatever she wants,” he said. “I rarely tell anybody what they should be doing with their life.”

George Clooney: A non-bossy lover of juvenile humor. Who knew?

The full Rolling Stone interview is available Friday.
