Pitt and Clooney 'make Oscar bets'

Brad Pitt will work as a deckhand if George Clooney picks up the best actor Oscar.

Brad and George are famously good friends who enjoy pranking each other both on and off set.

This year both men are in the running for the coveted leading actor Academy Award - Brad for his turn in Moneyball and George for The Descendants.

The pair have come up with a novel agreement in case either of them triumph.

"If George wins, Brad will work a full day as a deckhand on George's yacht in Italy's Lake Como," reports National Enquirer. "If Brad takes the crown, he and [his partner] Angelina Jolie get a night out while George babysits their brood of kids."

Brad and Angelina raise six children together.

George and Brad are both working on jokes to play on each other at the moment. Brad has insisted his trick will be fantastic, while George says he's been working on his work several years.

The star added that Brad has accepted what is coming.

"It could all go down then [at the Oscars]. I hope not because I really do have him and it could be bad," George recently laughed.

"Brad has said to me, 'Just don't harm the children' and that seems fair."
