When it comes down to it, George Clooney is just a simple man... apparently. Despite the acclaimed actor being one of the most handsome men in Hollywood, hands down, and — before his flawless human rights lawyer wife Amal came on to the scene and they married in an absurdly stunning Italian wedding — he was also one of the most eligible bachelors in Tinseltown, Clooney apparently just enjoys the simple things in life. Or at least, that's the conclusion we're drawing based on the, er, interesting birthday gift Amal gifted to her hubby for his 55th birthday.

George celebrated the milestone birthday on May 6 "crying and drinking," he jokingly told ET Canada. "I was in the Bahamas with my wife and a couple of friends, and took a little boat ride, and went to a restaurant, and had a great night."

So what did Amal give him as a present?

"We have a beautiful front lawn at our house in England and I used to mow lawns when I was a kid, so she bought me this giant riding lawn mower that is sitting at the house right now and I'm very excited about putting that to work when I'm home."

Aw! We didn't realize the two-time Oscar-winner was so wholesome — we love it! We can just picture the silver fox driving his brand new lawn mower with a beer in hand... maybe with his shirt off? Unfortunately, we'll never know.

Mr. and Mrs. Clooney are coming up on their second wedding anniversary. The couple wed on September 27, 2014 in a Venetian destination wedding fit for Hollywood royalty. The couple planned an event-filled weekend for their guests, with an itinerary full of dinners, cocktails, and more. In front of a wall brimming with white candles at the Aman Canal Grande Hotel in Venice, Italy, George and Amal, clad in a gorgeous Oscar de la Renta lace wedding dress, exchanged their vows in an intimate ceremony with 100 of their nearest and dearest, including Matt Damon and wife Luciana, Rande Gerber and his supermodel wife Cindy Crawford, Ellen Barkin, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, Bono, Anna Wintour, and Bill Murray (who happily gave a toast at the reception).

While their wedding was the definition of perfect, their proposal... not so much. The actor told Ellen Degeneres earlier this year that his proposal to Amal had some hiccups. "I've got it all set up, timed out and the song is coming and she gets up to go wash the dishes, which she's never done," he told Ellen. "And I'm like, 'What are you doing?' and she comes back in. And finally I said, 'Ya know, I blew out the candle' and I said, 'I think the lighter's in the box behind you.' And she reaches around and she pulls out the box and I've got just the ring sitting in there and she pulls it out and she looks at it and she's like, 'It's a ring' — like as if somebody had left it there some other time."

"[I] said, 'I couldn't imagine spending the rest of my life without you,'" he explains. "And she kept looking at the ring and she was looking at me and she was like 'Oh my God.' "

Lucky for George the answer was of course "yes!" George than presented Amal with an emerald-cut 7-plus carat diamond — ethically sourced, of course.

Here's to many more happy celebrations for this picture-perfect pair!

George Clooney Dishes to Stephen Colbert on His Marriage to Amal: I’m the “Arm Candy”

Just as George and Amal Clooney are nearing their first wedding anniversary as husband and wife, the actor made a very special appearance as Stephen Colbert's first guest on his debut episode as host of The Late Show Tuesday night — and, much to our delight, opened up about his new wife and their life together.

Colbert prodded the leading man about his marriage, to which Clooney — who married the British human rights lawyer in a star-studded Italian wedding at Venice's Aman Canal Grande Hotel in September 2014 — joked, "They said it wouldn't last."

Colbert then followed up on the actor's marriage by asking Clooney what it's like to be "the arm candy" in the relationship. "Because she's a very serious person. She must say, 'We're going to meet some extremely intelligent people tonight,'" the Late Show host explained.

Clooney joked: "[I feel] shiny and pretty. That's mostly what I do now."

Colbert gave the two-time Oscar winner a belated wedding present — from Tiffany no less! — but not without noting that the funnyman did not receive an invitation to the nuptials. Clooney opened the iconic blue box, which contained an engraved paperweight reading, "I don't know you."

"That's just to remind you that we don't know each other," said Colbert, adding he didn't want to "do the celebrity thing" and pretend they are friends in real life.

The Clooneys will just have to invite Colbert and his wife on one of their famed date nights to continue this new friendship!

Hollywood's hottest couple is certainly enjoying the summer! George and Amal Clooney were spotted out on an intimate date night in their favorite Italian town of Lake Como holding hands and looking relaxed and happy — and good looking as ever.

The actor and his superstar lawyer wife, who married in Venice, Italy, last September, were seen leaving the Lake Como restaurant Harry's Bar Wednesday, E! News reports, with Mrs. Clooney sporting cute and summery polka dot shorts and a simple black top holding hands with her husband, who was sporting a casual outfit of seersucker pants and a button down — oh, and a growing goatee to complete his silver fox look.

The couple has been spending some of the summer at George's Lake Como villa — a property he purchased in 2001 — enjoying some rest and relaxation as well as a few houseguests. Last week, George's parents along with his wife's sister, Tala Alamuddin, joined the couple for a big family dinner, which caused quite a stir in the Gatto Nero restaurant. "The restaurant was full, but when they came in, there was much surprise and excitement," a source told E! News of their family get-together.

Apparently, the Clooneys make for very good dinner dates. One of the couple's friends, author Kathy Lette, told People earlier this week that seeing the newlyweds interact is like "watching a rom-com in front of you." Lette became friends with the British lawyer through her husband Geoffrey Robertson QC, who works with Amal. The author recently had the famous actor and his wife over for dinner and said it's clear to see the two "are mad about each other."

Lette added that it's no surprise to see why the A-list actor fell for the human-rights lawyer. "She's drop-dead gorgeous, your jaw hits the ground, but she's also very charming, funny, self-deprecating," she said, adding that fame has not changed Amal one bit. "She's as warm and down-to-earth as ever."

While George Clooney had made it clear that growing his family hasn't been a huge priority, the movie star has had a change of heart. So much so that a little less than a year into marriage, he and wife Amal Clooney are repotedly trying to have a baby.

A source close to the couple told Us Weekly that apparently Clooney is now ready to have a little one. "They decided that it would be the right time," the insider revealed. "Amal isn't taking on extra work at the moment and just continuing with the cases she has."

The high-profile duo wants to have the baby in London by next year, just in time for their $15 million renovation on their English countryside home to be completed. "The building plans include a nursery," another insider noted of the gigantic, 9,000-square foot estate. "They hope to have all the work done by Christmas."

And apparently, they're taking this very seriously. "They recently visited a fertility center," a third source added. "This is something they really want."

So, what convinced Clooney to finally decide he's ready to be a dad? His friends. "He loves the relationships his friends have with their kids," and would love to have that himself. "George is ready for this step and he thinks that Amal will be a great mother."

We can only imagine great parents they'd make! We're looking forward to an upcoming pregnancy announcement.

July 4th seems to be a popular wedding weekend for celebs! While Hollywood A-listers like Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, Vanessa Williams and Billy Joel spent the time getting hitched, Julia Roberts and husband Danny Moder spent the holiday weekend celebrating their 13th wedding anniversary!

As if the longtime lovebirds and parents of three were only marking 13 years together wasn't special enough, they had an incredible backdrop to do so: good friend George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin's house in Lake Como, Italy. The family of five — Roberts and Moder brought their three littles ones along to the celebration — spent three days at Clooney's private residence along with a few other guests, E! News reports.

One fun moment? The whole family took a motorized dinghy out on the water. "It was so lovely, a real family outing," a source said of the activity. "She looked so taken with her daughter, she held her in her arms on the boat."

"Moder meanwhile was driving," the insider added. "And the boys were there, happy as they could possibly be. It was a picture of serenity, family moments."

We're not surprised that Roberts spent her anniversary at the Clooneys' since Roberts and Clooney are longtime friends. But despite their years of friendship, the Academy Award winner just recently met Amal for the first time. "We've been really good friends for a really long time and I just adore her," Clooney told E! News said of Roberts in May. "She and Amal and I went out to dinner the other night. It was so much fun to have her meet my wife and have both of them be such good friends and hit it off so well."

You can take George Clooney out of Kentucky, but you can't take the Kentucky out of George Clooney. The superstar traveled to Augusta, Kentucky, this week for a family reunion and got to show wife Amal a little bit of his down-home side while revisiting his favorite haunts.

The newlyweds made the rounds while they were in town, having dinner at a local restaurant (where they sang to a woman celebrating her birthday), going to a pub, and hitting up his favorite bakery, Magee's.

"They were fun as a couple!" Magee's bakery co-owner Russell Dickson told Us Weekly of the Clooneys, who reportedly walked into the place holding hands. "They ordered the transparent [a type of pie], that's his thing, he loves the transparent."

According to Dickson, Amal got to see one of her husband's longtime hotspots. "His family has been a customer for years, so I kind of half grew up with him always hanging around the bakery," he said. "He stops in maybe once a year or so."

During their off-time from the reunion, George also found time to get athletic. He was spotted playing basketball at Augusta High School on Wednesday with some students. "It was fun, he's still got it," one of the players told People. Not only that, but Amal stopped by to watch and "it looked like she knew the game too."

George grew up in the area, where his father Nick is a local journalist and television host. As expected, locals had fun Clooney-spotting, posting pictures on Twitter and Instagram of the lovebirds. How sweet!

Wait, What?! Amal Alamuddin Didn’t Immediately Say Yes to George Clooney’s Proposal

You'd think that George Clooney, perpetual bachelor and often at the top of any "Hottest Man in Hollywood" list, could get any woman he ever wanted. So you could only imagine that when it came time for the movie star to get down on one knee and propose after 50 plus years of smoldering this earth the recipient of said proposal would barely let the guy finish and accept with absolute and total ecstatcy, right? Nope.

Turns out that when Clooney finally decided to pop the question to his now-wife Amal Alamuddin it took her a long time to give him an answer. A whole 28-minutes long.

During an interview with Charlie Rose for CBS This Morning the Tomorrowland star explains like us, Alamuddin was totally shocked by the proposal. "When I asked her, you know, we'd never talked about it....there wasn't like a, 'Maybe we should get married' [conversation]," he explained. "I dropped it on her!"

As for Alamuddin, she just sat there in disbelief, Clooney recalled. "I asked her, and she just kept saying, 'Oh my, God,' and 'Wow,' and we just sat there," he said. "And finally, I just said, 'Listen, I'm 53 at the time, or 52 at the time, I think. I said, 'I've been on my knee for about 28 minutes so I gotta get an answer out of this because I'm gonna throw a hip out!'"

He told Rose that while he may have surprised everyone with a proposal after only seven months, he knew right away that he wanted to marry her. "I knew fairly quickly that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with Amal," Clooney said.

Remember when George Clooney was a notorious bachelor, jumping from girlfriend to girlfriend, and seemingly destined to live out the rest of his illustrious life and career without ever walking down the aisle again? We barely do. Ever since he married his wife Amal in September, he's been every bit the committed, devoted husband we always knew deep down he could be. And on Good Morning America earlier today, he further buried his former playboy prankster reputation.

"That's right, I'm a married man now," the Oscar winner said in an interview promoting his upcoming movie Tomorrowland. "Everything's different now. Actually it is. I was going to make a joke but it is, actually."

Though he'd avoided marriage for much of his A-list movie star career, he has no regrets about marrying his human rights barrister wife. "I couldn't be happier," he continued. "We're having a really fun time. We're working on fixing up a house in England that we'll be spending a lot of time in just outside of London. And we've been sort of traveling the world. We're on our way to Shanghai."

He did note, though, that Amal's career — originally based out of London, she's been teaching at Columbia Law School in New York City for the past few months — has made their plan to not spend more than a week apart hard to achieve. "She actually has a day job," he said. "She has to like, get people out of jail." Her career is one of the things he loves most about her, so we're sure he's not complaining too much.

Sorry, ladies — George is a happily taken man now.

George Clooney Gushed About Wife Amal!

George Clooney is a notorious prankster and smooth talker (in addition to being a humanitarian and A-list actor), but ever since he married human rights barrister Amal Alamuddin in September, he's started wearing his heart on his sleeve — a lot. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, he got downright gushy about his wife, and gave some insight into their relationship.

"She's an amazing human being and she's caring," he said last night. "And she also happens to be one of the smartest people I've ever met. And she's got a great sense of humor. There's a number of reasons why [I fell in love]."

They got engaged a year ago after a whirlwind romance, and George revealed that Amal's worldly intelligence was a big factor in his decision to settle down. "I'm always very proud of her when I see her speaking at the International Court of Appeals in Strasbourg [France], you know, with her robe on. It's very impressive," he said.

As for her clothing, of which he's known to pre-approve before she steps out, he said, "Since the day I met her — she's always had this insanely...it's eccentric but it's fun, sense of fashion. How she does it while she's got 11 cases she's working on? It's crazy. It has been sort of fascinating to watch, because she has such great taste."

But don't go thinking they have some perfect, Hollywood fairytale romance. In a separate interview with Extra to promote his upcoming movie Tomorrowland, George sheepishly admitted something that practically every husband has to deal with. "I watch sports, and it kills her," he said. "I got her into March Madness a little, I'm a huge Kentucky fan, so she got into that, but it was enough," he said, of his wife's sports fan limits.

Of all of the fabulous red carpets and awards shows, no event is more exciting than the Met Gala. Formally called the Costume Institute Gala, the annual event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art always attracts the hottest Hollywood couples dressed in their finest outfits. It's like a glorified Halloween party (this year's theme was China: Through the Looking Glass, other years have asked attendees to dress as superheroes and punks), and there's nothing better than seeing our favorite red-carpet duos step out in total harmony. So without further adieu, here are our picks for the best pairs of the night:

Beyoncé and Jay Z (above)
Music's power couple showed up fashionably (and we mean fashionably) late, but that didn't take away from how flawless they looked hand-in-hand climbing the stairs to the Met! Queen Bey stunned in an embellished nude Givenchy gown, while Jay was dapper in a perfectly tailored tux.

It's not the headline-making, floral-print Givenchy gown and gloves she wore to her first Met Gala with Kanye in 2013 (while she was pregnant with North!), but Kim found a way for her and her husband to get all eyes on her yet again at this year's gala. Sure, he's wearing a velvet jacket and a scarf on a hot May day, but who can tell when she's in this sheer Peter Dundas for Roberto Cavalli creation?

Well, if it isn't the most fashionable newlyweds! Fresh off the news that George pre-approves of all of his barrister wife's outfits, they roll up looking like absolute royalty. Amal's tiered red John Galliano gown is spot-on for the theme, as is her hubby's subtle matching pocket handkerchief.

This is them trying to prepare us for their wedding-day looks, right?! It has to be! The Modern Family star could easily re-wear this ombré Marchesa gown with rose gold embroidery to her wedding to her hunky fiancé. He can keep his outfit, too. They may not look so on-theme, but they do look on point.

These two are still pretty new at walking red carpets together, but they seem to be adjusting just fine! Case in point: They sort of look like a bride and groom on top of a wedding cake tonight, with her in a divinely detailed Givenchy halter gown and him in a classic bow-tie and suit. Or is that just wishful thinking on our part?

This is the first time the actress and her NBA player husband have attended the Met Ball together, but they look like a couple that's been coordinating outfits for a long time. They didn't quite dress to the theme — minus her chic, fan-shaped purse, that is — but her long-sleeved plum-colored Zac Posen gown with the sneaky cutout in the back complements his suave suit and loafers perfectly.

We knew that these two wouldn't disappoint! They love showing up to events (especially the ones NPH hosts!) in coordinating tuxes, and these super-classic black-and-white looks are perfect for any formal occasion or theme.

The fashion plate actress and her Dawson's Creek alum boyfriend always cut a stunning figure, and tonight is no exception. What we love is how he provides an understated contrast (hello, classic black tux!) to her more daring outfits. Her two-piece Chanel Couture ensemble is sexy, edgy, and feminine at the same time. Can you believe she doesn't use a stylist?!

Their white-out wedding in New Orleans was a sign of good joint fashion moments to come. While the singer's husband looks fresh in his tuxedo, she's set to become the talk of the town in her structural Giles Deacon design. Look how cute he is holding her hand as they go up the steps!

These newlyweds always seem so low-key (they were college sweethearts!), but when they show up on a red carpet like tonight's, it's clear that they're stars. Their corresponding black-and-white outfits are so great together — he looks dapper as ever in his tux, and her Maison Valentino gown is sweet, classy, and very event-appropriate.

These two waited to make their red carpet debut until after news of their engagement broke, but boy, did they make it count! Twigs made quite the statement in her artistic Christopher Kane gown, which her fiancé complemented quite sneakily with his unconventional tie. We love how this quirky couple presents themselves together, and now we can't wait for more public appearances!
