Mr Gerber shared the incident and said: "When Clooney's dinner guests arrived they found black suitcases at each of their spots around a table." "Listen, I want you guys to know how much you've meant to me and how much you mean to me in my life. I came to LA, I slept on your couch. I'm so fortunate in my life to have all of you and I couldn't be where I am today without all of you. So, it was really important to me that while we're still all here together, that I give back. So I want you all to open your suitcases," Mr Gerber quoted George Clooney as saying.
