The Ocean's Eleven star was discussing how he adjusted to months of being in lockdown, including the hair conundrum us mere mortals also faced. Turns out, it didn't phase him as much as it did the rest of us.

"I've been cutting my own hair for 25 years," he revealed. "Years ago, I bought a thing called a Flowbee; it comes with a vacuum cleaner and clippers. I still have it.
"My hair's like straw, so it's easy to cut," he added, even going as far as to demonstrate the noise said Flowbee makes. "Listen man, it works."
Well at least he won't find bits of hair all over the house for weeks after an at-home haircutting session.
Top marks for tidiness, George!
