Matt Damon Talked About The Time Kennedy Center Honoree, George Clooney, Shit In Richard Kind’s Cat’s Litter Box

December 16, 2022 / Posted by:

The 45th Annual Kennedy Center Honors already happened earlier this month, and those who’ve given us a lifetime of contributions in the entertainment arena, like U2 and George Clooney, were some of this year’s honorees. And if by “lifetime contributions” they meant “your iTunes is still fucked all the way up and always will be for the rest of your lifetime by the unsolicited disbursal of U2’s Songs of Innocence album,” then yeah, I guess U2 qualifies. But not to be outdone by U2’s tomfoolery, honoree, and one of the “world’s most handsome men,” George Clooney also did some shady shit in his storied time in the biz–literally. While giving a speech about his good friend, George, Matt Damon’s KCH speech touched on the time that George took a big girthy dump in fellow actor Richard Kind’s kitty litter box back in the day when they were roommates. Stars–they’re just like us!

In a preview for the ceremony, which will air in a couple of weeks, Matt talked George up by giving everyone a glimpse into what it’s like to be friends with one of Hollywood’s distinguished gentlemen. via People:

In a teaser for the 2022 Kennedy Center Honors shared by E! News, Matt Damon honors his friend and former costar with an unexpected speech.

“It has been said that my friend George Clooney is the last of the true movie stars,” Damon, 52, says about longtime pal, Clooney, 61.

“So I got to thinking about exactly what that meant. Of course, a number of past Kennedy Center honorees have certainly been movie stars in that classic sense. Actors with class and sophistication — Cary Grant, Henry Fonda, Paul Newman, Gregory Peck,” he continues, winding up for the punchline.

“And then I think of George,” Damon says. “A man who defected in Richard Kind’s kitty litter box as a joke.”

Damon doesn’t stop there: “A man who once stole Bill Clinton’s stationery and wrote fake notes to actors, saying how much the President loved their movies.”

Here’s Matt lightly roasting George:

The feces incident Matt was referring to was the time George used his bowels to mess with Richard. George has proudly described his handiwork a couple of times over the years.

During an appearance last year on the podcast SmartLess, hosted by Sean Hayes, Jason Bateman and Will Arnett, Clooney shared why he pooed in Kind’s cat’s litter box.

The Ocean’s Eleven actor and Kind used to be roommates, and Kind had a small cat that lived with them. As Clooney told the story, because he was bored, he began removing the cat’s poop from the litter box and flushing it down the toilet.

“My little kitty. He hasn’t taken a s— in, I think, three days,” Clooney recalled Kind saying to him.

“And then he takes the cat to the vet, and they give him this kitty Metamucil. And so now this little kitty is s—ting 15 times a day, and I am scooping it all up, because I have nothing else to do,” Clooney told the Smartless crew. “I have no idea why. It’s just funny.”

The Up in the Air star then said he had an epiphany.

“And then after a couple of weeks, the light bulb goes off, and I realize what I must do,” he said “I must take a s— in the cat box.”

“Now there is this moment,” Clooney said, laughing, “when I’m squatted down over a cat box where I’m going, ‘Really? I mean, it’s funny. It’s good. But I’m not sure it’s how I want to be remembered…’ The cat is like six-inches long. It’s a tiny cat.”

But Richard Kind was not so amused. He called the shit “defecation!”

Soon Kind figures it all out and while Clooney thought it was hilarious, Kind wasn’t thrilled. “He gets madder and madder and madder,” Clooney remembers. “And then finally he says, ‘I understand humor! Defecation doesn’t make me laugh!'”

George was so proud that he pulled this whole thing off that he’s been gloating about his unloading since 1996 when he appeared On Dennis Miller Live

But worst Batman has surely evolved since becoming one of the elite. His cat poop pranks now are probably much more dignified; he now has one of his housekeepers remove the wee turds from the marble litter box of an Italian Lake Como Himalayan cat who eats fancy feast out of a crystal goblet before instructing his assistant to deposit their most impressive shits into it for his lovely wife, Amal Clooney, to stumble upon!
