What do you get when you’re a famous actor, devote your free time to preventing another Darfur, and travel to the Sudan during a pivotal election despite the fact that you might be trapped in the midst of a violent upheaval?

George Clooney with malaria, that’s what!

The Oceans Eleven actor has apparently contracted and subsequently recovered from malaria, but here’s the kicker— he had it once before!

Clooney filmed an interview with Piers Morgan on Wednesday, after which Morgan tweeted that the actor was fighting an illness and then released video from the segment.

Apparently the 49-year-old has beaten the disease not once but twice, and he’s lucky because malaria is an often serious, life-threatening ailment contracted from a mosquito bite. Every year there are 250 million cases of malaria, nearly a million resulting deaths, and in Africa 20% of childhood fatalities are a result of the disease.

In his interview with Morgan, set to air Friday night, Clooney not only discusses his experiences with malaria, but hopes to show how simple it is to cure the disease in an effort to help raise desperately needed funds to go towards prevention and treatment.

New Scientist recently captured the first ever recorded video of a malaria parasite invading a human blood cell at the exact moment it makes contact, check out the eerie video below!
