Hollywood’s most-eligible bachelor is officially bachelor no more.
George Clooney married the human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin in Venice, Italy, in a private ceremony Saturday, the actor’s representative said. A brief statement from Clooney’s rep, Stan Rosenfeld, was the only communication on the marriage, which has seen a lot of hype but few remarks from Clooney.
Clooney, 53, was joined by friends to celebrate his marriage to the 36-year-old Alamuddin, 36 at Aman, a luxury hotel overlooking Venice’s Grand Canal. Families and close friends, including Matt Damon, John Krasinski and the Oscar winner’s producing partner, Grant Heslov were in attendance, People reports.
Clooney had mostly managed to keep their courtship out of the spotlight until he shared the news of their wedding date on Sept. 7.
The couple was married by close friend Walter Veltroni, who is the former mayor of Rome.
