We had no idea we had so much in common with George Clooney.
"My favorite part is somebody always gets hammered and really screws up, which is good fun," Clooney told CNN of the Globes awards, at which he'll be on Sunday. His two films, "The Ides of March" and "The Descendants," brought in nine nominations.
Don't count Clooney out of the spirit-soaked revelry: When asked if there'll be a festive beverage, like a Mai Tai, at his table, the actor latched onto the suggestion.
"That's a great idea, because you know, that's not a hangover," Clooney mused Thursday at the Critics Choice Awards. "Something with an umbrella and a straw for everyone at the table. I like it. I'll do it."
His "Descendants" co-star Shailene Woodley, whose role in the movie has her up for a best supporting actress Globe, is on board.
"Yeah, right, with the little umbrellas, some pineapples. I'd be down," Woodley said. "Break open the coconuts. Let's do it!"
So, there you have it: If you're planning on playing a Golden Globes-related drinking game - perhaps involving Ricky Gervais' sure-to-be outlandish jokes (not that we recommend that...) - aim for a tropical theme, and it'll be like you're at Clooney's table.
The Golden Globes will air live Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
