Actor sent celebratory email to pal

Matt Damon has admitted he couldn’t help gloating to pal George Clooney when he was named most bankable star by Forbes.

The actor, 36, sent a message to his Ocean’s Thirteen co-star – who was at his Italian villa – to boast about finally trumping him in a poll.

‘I sent that email to George with a note attached saying, “Suck it up, sexy boy”,’ Matt tells the Daily Mail.

‘And he wrote back saying: “Yeah, that’s great. I had that read to me by one of my servants at the villa”.’

According to the Forbes list, Matt makes a film studio $29 for every dollar he is paid.
