Clooney's skinny dipping tradition

George Clooney joked he makes all his guests go skinny dipping

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!"
