Watch out, Justin Trudeau — it sounds like Barack Obama's got a side bromance brewing.
In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, George Clooney revealed that he and the former president have gotten pretty close over the past few months — so close, in fact, that they even swap racy text messages from time to time. (You know, just guy things.)
"Not Scaramucci-racy," the 56-year-old actor clarified, "but … you know, I have over the years with my friends said a lot of really (outrageous things).

Obama and Clooney had previously shot hoops together to unwind after a meeting in September 2016, but it sounds like their most recent game got pretty heated pretty quickly.
"I shot the lights out that day," Clooney told THR. "I think it really bothered him."
