George Clooney has been using this peculiar tool to cut his own hair for years


George Clooney's head of salt-and-pepper locks doesn't get touched by just anyone. In fact, the actor has revealed that he's been giving himself haircuts for 25 years.

During his weekend appearance on CBS Sunday Morning, Clooney divulged info about his personal grooming techniques - namely that he cuts his own hair.

"I've been cutting my own hair for 25 years. My hair's really like straw, and so it's easy to cut, can't really make too many mistakes," he said.

But before you go imagining a freshly showered Clooney in front of his mirror with some haircutting shears, think again. There's a special tool he uses to make the hair cutting process a little more seamless.

"Years ago, I bought a thing called a Flowbee," Clooney explained. "It comes with a vacuum cleaner and clippers, yeah. I still have it." Essentially, the tool uses suction for a no-mess haircut.

He went on to say that the whole process takes "literally two minutes."

Of course, like with any piece of amazing information, social media users everywhere fired up their thumbs and did their thing.

"Fellow men: Using the Flowbee to cut your hair will NOT make you look like George Clooney. Just putting that out there before you spend your money," one user quipped.

Another chimed in, "Finding out George Clooney uses a Flowbee is the wildest thing I have heard in the last 24 hours."

Even the folks behind the Twitter account for Clooney's latest film, "The Midnight Sky," couldn't help themselves. "We can neither confirm nor deny the use of a Flowbee on the set of #TheMidnightSky," they wrote.

While Clooney makes his interview rounds, one in particular stands out to fans as Clooney's 3-year-old son, Alexander, stole the show.

In the midst of the interview, Clooney could be heard speaking to the little party crasher. "You’ve got chocolate on your face. Do you know what? What is that? Did you have chocolate?” Clooney said.
