Fran Drescher reveals what George Clooney said to her after SAG-AFTRA strike ... trends now

Fran Drescher has heard from some of the biggest names in Hollywood since the SAG-AFTRA strike finally ended. 

The SAG-AFTRA union reached a tentative agreement for a new three-year deal with studios on Thursday morning following an arduous and historic strike that threatened to throw studios into chaos.

Drescher, who is the president of the union, told Extra's Billy Bush she had heard from some of the biggest working celebrities - including George Clooney.

The Nanny star, 66, said George was shocked to learn she had received the deal she did from studios.  

'George Clooney said, "I would have bet my house and lost that you couldn't get the deal that you got, that you wouldn’t have gotten past a billion dollars." And that just made me so happy,' she said.

She also received a call from Tyler Perry. 'I'm so, so proud of you,' she recalled him telling her.

'Bradley Cooper... He said to me that many, many years ago, when I was still on The Nanny and he was working at a hotel… and he maybe brought my bags up to my room with me and we talked the whole way up and he said, "I never, ever forgot how kind you were, how much you made me feel seen, and how you talked to me like I was an equal, and I'll never forget that, and I'm just glad I had the opportunity to thank you now."'

Describing what caused the strike to end, she said: 'It was moving all the way through… We had reached a threshold where we crossed the billion-dollar mark and ended at a [$1,011,000,000], which is quite historic in terms of the size of the contract in this industry.'
