The upcoming marriage of Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney to his fiance, human rights attorney Amal Alamuddin, is a going to be a big one, at least in terms of media attention, if nothing else.
Julianna Margulies, who co-starred with Clooney and is his “old friend,” spoke to E! News on Saturday night at the Variety and Women in Film’s Emmys party at Gracias Madre in West Hollywood, sharing with them her feelings about the upcoming union.
“I’m thrilled!” She said, adding simply that Amal is “a great girl.”
As was reported by the same publication last month, Clooney, 53, will marry Alamuddun at his Lake Como home, Villa Oleandra, in Laglio, Italy, next month in what is slated to be a very intimate family affair.
A source said about the September wedding of George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin.
“George has always loved Como, he finds it very peaceful and relaxing and now Amal has fallen in love with the area as well. They want to start their married life there with the beautiful lake as a backdrop.”
The wedding is set to be so small, in fact, that it’s likely, according to many, that Marguilies won’t be in attendance when Amal says, “I do” to George.
The source continued.
“This is not going to be a huge Hollywood wedding with Julia Roberts and Sandra Bullock flying in to Italy for a week. George and Amal don’t want a media circus with paparazzi helicopters flying overhead and motorbikes chasing after them as they all arrive at the airport in Milan from Los Angeles. They want the wedding to be intimate with quiet but happy and fun dinners and lunches after they’ve said short but meaningful, hand-written vows in front of their loved ones.”
No doubt, there will be a whole lot of media attention on the forthcoming wedding of the year, even if George Clooney and his wife-to-be are planning a quiet ceremony, the media will be there, in order to get the latest scoop.
