Apr 1, 2013 at 12:28 p.m. ET

How refreshing that a handful of celebrities don’t take themselves too seriously and can appreciate the art of a good prank. That some of them happen to be complete hotties is a welcome bonus. Here are a few of Hollywood’s hottest pranksters…

Brad Pitt and George Clooney

Brad Pitt/George Clooney

Maybe everyone thought Brad Pitt’s Chanel No. 5 ad was a joke because he and buddy George Clooney are known for being pranksters. When George slapped a bumper sticker on Brad’s car that said, “I’m gay and I vote,” Brad retaliated by circulating a memo to the Ocean’s Twelve crew asking that they refer to Clooney as "Mr. Ocean" throughout the entire production. And who could forget when Pitt was gimping around Hollywood Hills with a cane, and Clooney parodied Pitt onstage at the Golden Globes, with a cane! So, who’d you rather? Be pranked by, that is.

Johnny Depp

Surprise! The actor known for his intense acting has an off-camera funny-bone. Let us set the scene for you. Gorgeous actress Penelope Cruz is in an intense scene on the set of the movie Blow with Johnny Depp. Right in the middle of it, Johnny rips one — with a remote-control fart machine. Boys never outgrow toilet humor, and we love it! Can you imagine the look on the crews’ faces when they thought Penelope Cruz had gas? It makes us giggle and we weren’t even there! Classic.

Ashton Kutcher

Amateur pranksters take one step back. Ashton Kutcher established himself as a professional jokester on MTV’s Punk’d. He hatched a scheme that involved the seizure of Justin Timberlake’s property, bringing poor JT to tears! Cops swarmed on RiRi when she exchanged the $100 bill her friend had accidentally put in a street performer’s hat for a $5 bill. Who doesn’t love a well-thought out prank, especially when it’s being delivered by Ashton Kutcher?

What else is Seann William Scott known for other than playing the red-hot Stifler from American Pie? Turns out he can prank with the best of them. On the set of Role Models, he had the wardrobe department resize co-star Christopher Mintz-Plasse’s pants so they were too short and too tight. Stifler took it a step further and busted out the time-honored itching powder and dog-poo-in-the-shoe trick. Is it just us, or does a guy’s hot-factor go off the charts when he backs up his shirtless prowess with a sense of humor?
