George Clooney Demands Private Basketball Court, Landscaped Garden, GEORGE CLOONEY snubs the work canteen when he takes a break from filming new movie Gravity. Instead he sits in a hot tub by the custom-made beach hut he’s had installed next to his trailer inside Shepperton Studios.
The Hollywood star is the envy of every extra at the London location.
While they’re all hanging about in a Portakabin between shots, George is living a life of luxury.
The tub and hut are in his private landscaped garden and decking area, well away from prying eyes.
A source said: “George has really brought a bit of California to London.
“His private area is amazing and is better than most people’s houses.
“Because he’s such a big star he can request pretty much whatever he wants and he usually gets it. Scene builders can build anything on a film set – and that goes for facilities for the actors too. It’s quite a sight.”
George doesn’t just lounge around in his pants smoking cigars in his private holiday camp.
He’s able to do some exercise too as he’s also had a basketball court installed.
But George hasn’t had that all to himself. It’s on the edge of the studio site and local kids have been trying to sneak in and use it.
It’s believed to have cost more than £100,000 to build Clooney’s chillout complex. The Oceans 11 actor stars alongside SANDRA BULLOCK in the movie.
She’s a regular visitor to his luxurious hangout and takes 16-month-old nipper Louis with her.
The source added: “George lets Louis play on his decking and has a right laugh with him. He is big mates with Sandra, they’ve known each other for years.”
It’ll be interesting to see if George invites all the extras over to celebrate the film being wrapped up.
At least he’ll have somebody to play basketball with.
