Oops! George Clooney lets slip wedding details
The planning for the wedding of the decade was completely hush-hush.
But Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney himself let slip a couple of details at Sunday's Celebrity Fight Night in Tuscany, Italy where he received a Humanitarian Award.
And it was during his award acceptance speech that blurted out the location of his upcoming nuptials with UK lawyer Amal Alamuddin, 36, who accompanied him to the event, People reported.
Clooney, who was at the the black-tie affair was being held in support of the Andrea Bocelli Foundation and The Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center, said: "I met my lovely bride-to-be here in Italy, whom I will be marrying, in a couple of weeks, in Venice, of all places."
