George Clooney surprised a fellow diner by paying for the German man’s dinner while in Berlin, where he stopped on his way to film his new movie.

The diner, Oliver Hermann, said in an interview with the newspaper Bild that when he tried to pay his check, the waiter told him Clooney had already taken care of his 100 Euros ($135) bill.

According to the waiter, said Hermann, Clooney had been afraid that he and his party had been too loud and paid for his fellow restaurant patron’s bill as a way to apologize.

But Hermann said that wasn’t the case at all.

“That's not true at all,” he said about Clooney and his party’s supposed loudness. “They had behaved in a very cultivated manner. I was stunned.” 

He said he left his business card at the restaurant in the hope that he could pick up the tab for the actor sometime in the future. But he hadn't recognized Clooney, said Hermann.
