George Clooney says goodbye to bachelorhood with tequila and cigars
George Clooney said goodbye to bachelorhood in Venice on Friday (Sept 26) with a stag party at his favourite restaurant with a host of Hollywood chums.
As evening approached and girls across the world sobbed, he set out in black tie for an all-boys do with friends to celebrate one of his last nights as a single man.
After shaking off paparazzi, Clooney headed to Da Ivo near Saint Mark’s Square where his security detail was spotted lurking as the star and friends dined on the venue’s prized Venetian and Tuscan delicacies.
He was then reported to have headed to the luxurious Cipriani hotel where he was set to sleep, but not before rounding off the evening with some shots and cigars.
The 53-year-old actor had 100 cases of his own tequila label, Casamigos, which was flown in for his wedding and was expected to crack open bottles of the award-winning tipple at the stag party.
The actor had earlier swept into the floating city on Friday with his British fiancee Amal Alamuddin on a watertaxi dubbed “Amore", zipping up the Grand Canal to cheers from fans at the start of nuptials set to draw out over the weekend.
Matt Damon, Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber – tipped to be Clooney’s best man – were just a few of the stars in Venice for the wedding, with Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and musician Bono tipped to follow on Saturday.
