Matt Damon thought George Clooney was playing a trick on him when he gained weight.
The 'Informant!' actor - who raises three children with wife Luciana Bozan Barroso - was so unwilling to admit he had put on weight he convinced himself his actor pal had paid someone to alter all his clothes so they didn't fit.
Matt explained: "I have the opposite of anorexia. I look in the mirror and I think I look great.
"I put on some weight, not for a film just in my normal life, and suddenly none of my suits fitted.
"I was like, 'What's going on?' I took another suit out and it didn't fit either. Honestly, what I thought was that somehow George Clooney had gotten in and paid somebody to slightly hem them.
"My wife said to me, 'Could it be that maybe you've put on some weight?' I'm like, 'That's absurd! I look fantastic!' "
Matt - who put on 30lbs for his role in new movie 'The Informant!' - finally realised he had been gorging on too many calorific treats when he began working out and found his clothes fitted again.
He told MTV News: "The truth was, of course, that I was a fat a*s. I can't believe it made more sense to me that George Clooney paid somebody to hem my suits than to admit I actually didn't fit in my suits."
