Clooney's Oscar Taunts To Pitt

GEORGE CLOONEY was delighted with his win at the 2005 Oscars - because it meant he could taunt his close friend BRAD PITT over his success.
The Hollywood star landed the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Syriana.
And Clooney insists his win was made extra special by the fact that Pitt, although an Academy Award nominee, has never landed an Oscar.
He says, "It (the Oscar) makes me much harder to live with. That's what I enjoy doing with Brad - is gloating.
"I keep it (the statuette) back over a fireplace in my house. When my friends come over, I make them pick it up and we take photographs of them giving an acceptance speech."
Pitt was nominated for the Best Supporting Actor award in 1995 for his performance in Twelve Monkeys - but lost out to Kevin Spacey.
