Pitt: I started Clooney prank wars!

Brad Pitt has claimed that he was the one who started off the practical joke rivalry between himself and George Clooney.

The Moneyball star admitted that he was responsible for making the Italian crew of Oceans 11 treat his co-star with utmost respect, after he sent a note around, reported

"I sent a memo to the entire Italian crew, in Italian, that said, 'Dear Crew: We wish you a wonderful shoot. George Clooney asks that, this is a very difficult role for him. He needs to concentrate deeply'," Brad told Bravo TV show, Inside The Actor's Studio.

He continued: "Mr Clooney asks that you try not to interrupt him, look him in the eye. If you do need to address Mr Clooney, please refer to him only as 'Daniel' or 'Mr Ocean'. It went on for two weeks. He handled it gracefully, but he was becoming unnerved, I think."

Brad reckons he is now ready to retaliate if George decides to seek revenge.

"I knew that something bad was going to happen by me doing this, so I came up with a second [prank]," the Oscar-nominated actor continued.

"Whatever he's got, this is uglier. It's so bad, I don't even know if I can do it."
