Here in the United States of Freedom, we’re allowed to pester celebrities, psuedo-celebrities, and Masterson siblings alike to our hearts’ content, getting right up in their face to tell them they ain’t sh*t and beg for a selfie, and then run off to TMZ if they refuse. But over in the land of Mussolini, they aren’t protected by our bill of rights. In fact, it’s now illegal to approach George Clooney in the town Lalgio, Italy. Now they’ll never know how nice he smells.
The mayor of Laglio, Italy has declared a fine of up to €500 (£370) for anyone who approaches George Clooney’s luxury lakeside villa, on the shores of Lake Como in Italy.
Roberto Pozzi, mayor of Laglio, has issued the ordinance to guard the solace of the actor, his wife Amal Alamuddin and their entourage.
Anyone who leaves their car or boat within 100m of Clooney’s two villas – Villa Oleandra and Villa Margherita – will be liable to pay the fine.
I like to imagine he has one villa he lives in, and another with a punching back and a hole in the diving board so he can sh*t in the pool, like Will Forte on Last Man On Earth. Oh to be rich.
The Hollywood star of Gravity and Ocean’s Eleven has owned the magnificent Villa Oleandra, in the heart of the village, for more than a decade, ever since buying it in 2002 for €7.5 million.
Since the actor bought the 18th century villa, photographers and fans have flocked to the town, loitering around the Clooney’s home. [Telegraph]
I like to imagine Roberto Pozzi is the Italian version of the Sheriff of Malibu in The Big Lebowski. “Meester-a George a-Clooney, he wanna draws a lot of a-water inna this-a town. You donna draw sh*t, a-Lebowski. Now you go ahead anna get em up outta my beach-a community. Stay em up outta Laglio, schifozo! You go, anna take-a you faccia a culo on up em outta my beach a-community, capisce?” (*beans suspect in the head with meatball*)
