Are Matt Damon and Brad Pitt to blame for the guy stripping down in Italy and proposing to George Clooney? Yep!
The Venice Film Festival, where this trio of BFF celebs were all promoting flicks (The Informant, Inglorious Basterds, and The Men Who Stare at Goats, respectively), was also a playground for screwing with journalists. While Clooney joked about marrying Goats director Grant Heslov at his own press conference, it was Pitt who, sick of being asked when he would marry Angelina Jolie, told an interviewer he would marry her when Clooney marries his boyfriend.
And then Damon got asked by another reporter if Pitt’s remark was true. And Damon says yes!
And then the next day Clooney heads to Venice … to be confronted by the stripping man. Surely he was pleased.
