Cape Town – Bill Murray and George Clooney are Esquire magazine’s May cover stars, which is pretty awesome because we love them both.

And thanks to their interviews we found out something about each actor we never really knew!

Here they are:

1. Bill Murray lip syncs to Adele just like we do!

The St Vincent actor recalled the time he went to the same Adele concert as Adele, he said: "She's really funny. She sings these songs and people are just bathing themselves in tears…

"The way she talks in between songs. People are just gobsmacked by it, because you don't see it coming.

"I became a fan when I was driving my sons to school. I had Adele on, and I look in the rearview mirror and all three of my sons are in the back singing. 

"And I'm thinking, ‘What the hell touched these guys?’ So I started singing it myself after I dropped them off."

2. George Clooney played basketball with Barack Obama and thinks he’s really funny

When asked what he thinks of the president of the US is funny, George said: "He gets the joke. He's called me a couple of times after I've gotten in an argument with somebody about him. And he's like, 'What are you doing fighting with that guy?' That kind of stuff has been very funny."

He also recalled the day Obama invited him to play a game of basketball, he said: "I did a fundraiser in LA with him, and he said, ‘What are you doing tomorrow morning?’ I go, ‘What time?’ He goes, ‘5:30. You wanna play some hoops?’ And I go, ‘Yeah.’ And he goes, ‘All right, we'll set it up. You got any of your friends want to play?'"

On whether his team won or not, all George had to say was, "Now I have this picture of my buddy elbowing the President. It was really fun. He's a good basketball player."
