GEORGE CLOONEY tricked paparazzi into believing he was hosting BRAD PITT and
ANGELINA JOLIE’s wedding – to pay them back for swarming around his holiday
The Hollywood hunk received a call from Italy in 2006 stating his Lake Como
mansion had been surrounded by snappers after a rumor had spread that the
Hollywood couple were set to wed.
And instead of dismissing the reports, the Michael Clayton star fueled the
speculation – by ordering wedding paraphernalia to be set up on his sprawling
He says, “A while ago, when I was shooting, I got a call from a friend in
Italy. This was in February and my home in Italy is not a warm place in
February, it’s cold and wet.
“But this friend told me hundreds of reporters had descended on the house
because they’d heard that Brad and Angelina were getting married there.
He adds, “That was stupid – it was cold and raining; you wouldn’t want to get
married there. So I phoned up and ordered 15 high-top wedding tables and had
them set up in the yard.
“They went nuts – the next day there were helicopters flying over. They must
of spent millions to get the choppers up there!”
