George Clooney is reportedly planning to wed his new fiancee Amal Alamuddin in an Italian ceremony in September (14).
The Hollywood hunk proposed to the British lawyer in April (14) and they are wasting no time in heading to the altar, according to former supermodel Cindy Crawford, whose husband Rande Gerber is best pals with Clooney. She has let slip the happy couple is planning to tie the knot this autumn. During a trip to Paris, France last week (ends26May14), Crawford was asked by photographers if she was in the city for Clooney's wedding, to which she responded, "It's in September."
Now sources tell People magazine 53-year-old Clooney will marry Alamuddin, 36, in Italy, although they are reportedly opting for a more secluded location instead of exchanging vows at the actor's Lake Como retreat. Sources tell the publication the wedding will be followed by another party in Alamuddin's native Beirut, Lebanon.
The marriage will be Clooney's second - his union to actress Talia Balsam ended in divorce in 1993.
George Clooney celebrated his engagement to Amal Alamuddin by partying with Bono and Cindy Crawford on Sunday (11May14).
The Hollywood actor popped the question to British lawyer Alamuddin last month (Apr14) and the couple reportedly marked the upcoming nuptials by joining celebrity pals for dinner at supermodel Crawford's restaurant in Malibu, California. Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber were pictured arriving at Mexican eaterie Cafe Habana bearing flowers, while U2 rocker Bono tried to keep his appearance under wraps by wearing a hat and sunglasses.
A source tells E! News, "People got a show they didn't expect and other (patrons) said it was the best Mother's Day ever." The soon-to-be-wed couple dressed casually for the celebration, but all eyes were Alamuddin's seven-carat diamond and platinum engagement ring, which is reportedly worth $720,000 (£450,000).
Clooney and Alamuddin met at a fundraising event last year (13).
George Clooney's representative has fuelled rumours suggesting the actor is engaged to new girlfriend Amal Alamuddin by refusing to confirm or deny new reports the movie star is planning to give up single life.
The Ocean's Eleven star, 52, has been romantically linked to British lawyer Alamuddin since October (13), months after he split from ex-girlfriend Stacy Keibler, when they were first spotted enjoying a dinner together in London. He has yet to open up about the blossoming relationship, but she attended a White House screening of his film The Monuments Men earlier this year (Feb14) and jetted off to Tanzania with him for a safari holiday in March (14).
Now reports suggest the Hollywood ladies' man is ready to settle down - Alamuddin, 36, was sporting what appeared to be a "huge" engagement ring on her left ring finger while she and Clooney were spotted seemingly celebrating their happy news with friends at Los Angeles hotspot Craig's on Wednesday (23Apr14). The ring was still clearly visible when Clooney and his latest love hit Malibu restaurant Nobu on Thursday (24Apr14) for a double date with the actor's best pal Rande Gerber and his wife, former supermodel Cindy Crawford, according to People.com.
A source says, "George and Amal are trying to keep things very low-key but they also aren't really trying to hide this, it doesn't seem. I think it's like they want the people they love to know that this is real, that they plan on being together forever." Meanwhile, Clooney's representative has failed to silence the gossip, simply stating, "I don't comment on my client's personal life."
If the rumours are true, it will be the actor's second marriage - he was previously wed to Talia Balsam until their divorce in 1993, while his former flames include British model Lisa Snowdon, Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis and former wrestler Keibler, who wed businessman Jared Pobre in Mexico last month (Mar14), and is pregnant with the couple's first child.
U2 rocker Bono surprised diners at the posh Nobu restaurant in Los Angeles on Tuesday (26Feb14) when he broke out into an impromptu performance - and had George Clooney, Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber join in. The stars belted out a series of Eagles and Neil Diamond hits as other diners looked on in surprise.
Cindy Crawford has revealed a tequila commercial featuring her caught in bed with George Clooney was based on a real life incident with the movie hunk. The supermodel's husband Rande Gerber is best friends with Clooney, and the two own beverage brand Casamigos Tequila, for which they created an amusing advert last year (13).
In the ad, Gerber comes into a bedroom, only to find Clooney lying next to his lingerie-clad wife, suggesting the couple was sleeping off a heavy night of alcohol.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Crawford has revealed the concept for the commercial was based on an embarrassing real-life incident.
She explains, "I woke up at, like, midnight and I snuck into the guest room, and I saw Rande laying face down on the bed with the lights still on. So I was like, 'Hey babe, you gotta wake up.'
"And 'babe' turns his head and it wasn't this babe (Gerber) - it was George! We were both so shocked. Then I started looking for him (Rande) and was like, 'I just got in bed with George in the guest bedroom!'"
George Clooney and his business partner Rande Gerber have opened the doors to their side-by-side Mexican retreats for a new Architectural Digest spread. The two pals live right next door to each other in Los Cabos on the Baja peninsula and Gerber, who is married to Cindy Crawford, tells the publication he and Clooney have been vacationing there for 20 years.
In fact, the two friends used to hang out at the beach long before their holiday homes we built.
He says, "We saw this oceanfront lot and thought maybe it would make sense to build something."
Crawford adds, "Once we had kids, we would go on vacation at Christmas, but you'd have to book hotels a year in advance, and then you'd get there and they never quite lived up to expectations."
The trio initially dreamed up the idea of building one big compound, but came to the conclusion it would be better to have their own pads.
Gerber explains, "It's just nice at the end of the night to have your own place to go back to."
The sprawling homes feature airy, outdoor dining areas, sparkling pools, terraces, a home theatre and beautiful bedrooms all with views of the ocean.
Clooney tells Architecture Digest he allowed his friend to lead the design of the two places because he trusts Gerber's taste, adding, "Rande has this amazing eye for houses and style."
"Louis is not like any other kid. He looks you in the eye and he's a dude... and when Louis decided it was time to have some man-time with George and Rande, he said he'd let me know. I was like, 'Dear God, just do not bring Cindy Crawford around, because if you do I will lose my son'." Sandra Bullock begged Gravity co-star George Clooney and his best pal Rande Gerber not to invite Gerber's wife to the set when her women-loving son was hanging out with them.
Sandra Bullock's young son bonded with George Clooney on the set of the stars' new movie Gravity, and often ditched his mother to spend "man time" with the Hollywood hunk. The actress brought her three-year-old son to the set of filmmaker Alfonso Cuaron's new sci-fi film, in which she and Clooney play astronauts in space, and admits her little boy took a liking to her co-star.
She says, "My son thinks he's (Clooney) a very cool dude. If there's a choice between me, George and Alfonso, my son will leave me to be with George and these guys."
Single mum Bullock, who adopted Louis in 2010, admits her son has been bonding with a number of her A-list pals.
Speaking at a press conference at Canada's Toronto International Film Festival, she adds, "He's a boy's boy, so he has to go talk to the men. The cute little anecdote is that he went to me and said, 'Where's George and (Cindy Crawford's husband) Rande (Gerber)?' I said, 'I don't know!' And he said, 'I need them.' So we went and found them, and they had man time. And I sort of stood off to the side and waited for them to finish. Then I was allowed to take him back."
Thanks to the Gravity press tour, Sandra Bullock and George Clooney have been spending a lot of time together recently. And after seeing these two beautiful people side by side, sharing beautiful smiles and bouts of beautiful laughter, the cogs in our minds got to turning — these two, it's clear, would be perfect for one another. As if we needed any more proof (which we indubitably didn't), Bullock has now revealed that her 3-year-old son, Louis, likes Clooney a whole heck of a lot.
"My son thinks he's a very cool dude. If there was a choice between me and George and [director] Alfonso [Cuarón], my son will leave to go with George and the guys,” People reports Bullock as saying at a press conference at the Toronto International Film Festival. She continues, "He's a boys' boy – he has to go and talk to the men."
"He asked, 'Where's George and Rande [Gerber]?' I'm like, 'What? I don't know.' He goes, 'I need them.' We went to meet with them and they had man time. I stood off to the side and waited for them to finish and then I was allowed to take him back," Bullock says.
Bullock explains her son's attachment to everyone's favorite leading man by saying that she and Clooney have been friends for decades (yet another reason these two should give it the old college try). "George and I have known each other for over 20 years. We've known each other since we got out of college and we have the same group of friends," she says.
Ugh, it's just too perfect. Give the boy a never-ending supply of Clooney man time, Sandy! Do it for the boy's sake!
