Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Diane Keaton, Jimmy Kimmel, Anna Kendrick, Don Cheadle and even former US president Barack Obama paid tribute to the Hollywood star.
Mr Obama appeared by videotape, while Kimmel touched on Clooney’s love of pranks, quipping that his greatest was ”convincing Roseanne (Barr) to open a Twitter account”, The Hollywood Reporter said.
From early TV credits on Roseanne and Facts of Life to winning Oscars for Best Supporting Actor for Syriana (2005) and Best Picture for producing Argo (2012), George Clooney and his accomplishments were highlighted during the salute.
While the AFI tribute event was a celebration of acting and directing career of George Clooney, the affair comes one day after he and Amal marked the first birthday of their twins Ella and Alexander.
During the event, George Clooney, 57, joked about the first birthday of his twins, Ella and Alexander, US website People said.
“Well, the kids got drunk. I came home they had a bottle of booze. They’re feeling better today,” George Clooney said, before adding of family life: “It’s perfect.”
And with Father’s Day coming up, George Clooney also shared his excitement for the holiday.
“The kids are making me a cake already and they’re working on a card already,” the father of two joked. “It’s gonna be fun, I’m excited,” he added as Amal remained tight-lipped about the plans for June 17.
“It’s gonna be a surprise,” she said.
