Turns out you aren't the only one with loose-lipped relatives who like to chime in on your love life. Meet George Clooney's Aunt Staria, who has some strong ideas about her nephew's upcoming wedding to Amal Alamuddin.
First: the location. Staria, who is married to Clooney's paternal uncle, Joe Clooney, told the Daily Mail that she suspects the A-list wedding will be in Italy near the actor's Lake Como home. So much for the rumors of nuptials at Highclere Castle, the home of Downton Abbey.
"I do know that Nick and Nina [George's parents] are planning a trip over to Italy in the next week or so to, I guess, scope out some stuff," she revealed.
And, though the soon-to-be groom has no shortage of close pals (Matt Damon, Rande Gerber, producing partner Grant Heslov), Aunt Staria's money is on Brad Pitt being named best man.
"They are good friends," she explained. "I would think that’s who he’d choose."
Well, what bride wouldn't want to walk down an aisle with George Clooney and Brad Pitt standing at the other end? Pitt even comes with his own adorable ring bearers and flower girls.
Something tells us that Clooney will opt for a more low-key affair, but feel free to daydream about seeing Pitt in a tuxedo anyway. Nothing wrong with mixing romance with bromance, right? (Us Weekly)
