Location, location, location. It helped a group of kids in Tobaccoville, N.C. draw George Clooney to their lemonade stand and make a nice little profit.
A group of kids on spring break thought setting up a lemonade stand near Clooney's movie set might be a good business move. It was. Clooney showed up and paid 20 dollars for a 25-cent cup of lemonade, which 10-year-old Carter, 6-year-old Chandler and 5-year-old Chase Fontaine were selling.
Clooney bought his drink Wednesday afternoon after shooting scenes for "Leatherheads," a movie about the early days of professional football that he's directing and acting in.
The boys' mother offered Clooney the lemonade for free, but he insisted on paying, sending someone over with a 20-dollar bill.
Before long, Carter Fontaine made another sign that read, "George Clooney was here!"
"Leatherheads" has a December release date.
