George Clooney proved he was a true friend when he collected a group of pals from all over America in his private jet - so they attend a funeral.

The movie hunk was on hand to support pal Richard Kind, whose father was being buried in New Jersey.

When former SPIN CITY star Kind stood up to address family and friends, he spotted Clooney and the rest of his pals in the back row and broke down.

Clooney recalls, "Actually it still sort of chokes us all up. We just dropped everything and made it. There's a beauty in that that's really nice."
