The George Clooney prank that got Matt Damon has the fans laughing. Apparently on the set of Monuments Men the stars of the movie have down time and even share a few laughs. According to Gossip Cop on Tuesday, Clooney pranked Damon and Matt didn’t even know it until after the film was released to the public. George Clooney was the director of the film and decided to alter Damon’s pants to make it appear he was gaining weight.

“I read finally, which answered a lot for me, that he’d been taking my wardrobe in, my pants in, by about an eighth or a sixteenth of an inch every couple days,” said Matt Damon on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. The star explained he thought he was getting fat, but wasn’t sure because he was exercising. “Of course, I never said anything to him.”

The viewers were laughing at the joke of altering the pants as everyone knew that could make a person self-conscious. Wanting not to disappoint George Clooney or the Monuments Men movie schedule, Matt Damon never discussed the tight pants with anyone. And to his dismay the star found out he was being pranked after George Clooney shared the joke with the media during a movie junket.

Check out the video clip of Matt Damon explaining the prank of George Clooney.
