George Clooney has joked all his guests go skinny dipping when they stay at his house in Lake Como.

The Ides Of March director's co-star Marisa Tomei told Conan O'Brien this week she and Evan Rachel Wood had been skinny dipping while staying at George's Italian estate.

The 50-year-old Hollywood heartthrob was asked by Us Weekly about the skinny dipping and laughed: "It's a tradition at my house!"

He added: "It's funny. Some people skinny dip, but I always go upstairs and put a suit on and then I jump in the lake."

Marisa had said: "We had some hijinks over there. We would all end up skinny dipping!"

George joked at the Ides Of March premiere in New York: "Let me tell you. First I got Walter Cronkite to jump in. Then I got David Gergen to jump in. And I used Walter Cronkite to get Gergen to jump in. And I used Marisa and Evan in the lake to get Charlie Rose to jump in."

Asked what else he does to relax at his Italian holiday home he quipped: "Drink!"

Taurus:

It isn't healthy to be emotionally dependent. Becoming more self reliant should be your first order of business, especially if you're in a troubled relationship. Your partner may balk at your decision to acquire new skills, get a job or accumulate property. Pay no attention to their complaints. The sooner you carve out a niche for yourself, the happier you will be. Slowly but surely, the balance of power will be restored to your union. It's time to come into your own.More
