Ice Cube is a ''sore loser''.

The 44-year-old star - real name O'Shea Jackson - worked with George Clooney in 1999's 'Three Kings' and admits the notorious prankster avoided playing tricks on him while they were filming since he would ''get upset''.

He explained: ''No, you don't prank someone who ain't a practical joker, because I'm going to get upset. I'm a sore loser. You can make me laugh from over there, but don't hit me or spill s**t on me.''

Ice Cube claims Clooney isn't up to the same cheeky pranks he used to play on friends in the Hollywood hunk's younger days.

He told ShortList magazine: ''Seriously, though, Clooney's a motherf****r [laughs]. He ain't no joke. He talked to me about poking holes in his friends' condoms and s**t [laughs].

''This was in his younger days, I don't know if he'd still go that far, but Clooney has no boundaries, man. You don't play with Clooney.''

Ice Cube has recently hit the big screen in 'Ride Along' and there are talks of a sequel for a 2015 release.
