Matt Damon reckons Brad Pitt is the only co-star who was a match for George Clooney in the pranks department

Matt Damon has revealed George Clooney may be "a pro" at pranks, but Brad Pitt once got the better of him.

The trio worked together on Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve and Ocean's Thirteen, and Matt admitted the silver-haired heartthrob was hard to catch out.

"I've never gotten George, no. The thing is, George is a pro. He's very tough to get. He's got them all down. He's very, very funny," he told Shortlist magazine.

But the Contagion actor added: "The best one I saw on George was on Ocean's Twelve when Brad had a fake memo translated and given to the Italian crew. It was this whole thing saying, 'Please do not look Mr Clooney in the eye, only refer to him as Mr Ocean or Danny (the name of George's character).'

"It was so the opposite of George that he was mortified and when he found out, he was not happy about it.

"So that was the one time I saw someone get him."
