George Clooney and Brad Pitt have teamed up numerous times to star in some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbuster films over the years.

The Academy Award-winning actors first graced the big screen together in 2001’s remake of Ocean’s Eleven, which also stars Julia Roberts, Matt Damon, Casey Affleck, Bernie Mac and more.

“I’m going to be honest here – look at the films he does,” Clooney said about Pitt while promoting the movie in a joint interview in 2001. “He takes risks. He does films that are hard to get made and takes risks in movies. He’s a big movie star. It’s hard to do those … so, it’s fun to watch. Watch him in Snatch, [he’s] fantastic.”

Clooney – who was named People‘s Sexiest Man Alive in 1997 – jokingly added about Pitt, who was given the accolade in 1995, “And that’s all I’ll say on the subject, because he’s still the former Sexiest Man Alive … someone lost their crown.”

They later reunited for two more installments of the heist comedy, starring in Ocean’s Twelve in 2004 and Ocean’s Thirteen in 2007.

Sixteen years after sharing the big screen together in 2008’s Burn After Reading, Pitt and Clooney reunited onscreen in the trailer for Wolfs, an action comedy set to hit theaters in September 2024.

According to the film’s logline, “Clooney plays a professional fixer hired to cover up a high-profile crime. But when a second fixer (Pitt) shows up and the two ‘lone wolves’ are forced to work together, they find their night spiraling out of control in ways that neither one of them expected.”
