It's no secret that George Clooney and Brad Pitt are good friends--but Clooney admits he sometimes has ulterior motives when he invites his friend and his famous family to hang out at his Italian villa. Because they'll get all the attention and he can sneak away and get some peace and quiet!

"Whenever I want, I can always stage a diversion and invite Brad and Angie and their 15 kids children to come over," Clooney joked to The Sun in an exclusive interview. "Then I can sneak away to the other side of the lake by boat and do whatever I want."

In the interview, Clooney also dished about getting more R&R time in his Italian villa, trying to stay out of the spotlight more these days and working less to focus more on his personal life.
