George Clooney's fabulous villa in Lake Como, Italy is one of the premier invitations to score in Hollywood. Not only is it breathtakingly gorgeous, but you get some, ahem, views there you might not see anywhere else, like Hollywood's hottest bodies in the buff!

If you ever want to score an invite to George Clooney's Italian villa, you had best be comfortable with your body, because it is a rite of passage to wear nothing but your birthday suit when you jump in the gorgeous lake his home is situated near.

Clooney told US Weekly, "Skinny dipping is a tradition at my house. It's funny. Some people skinny dip but I always go upstairs and put a suit on and then I jump in the lake."

He elaborated in an interview with NY Magazine by saying, "Let me tell you, first we got Walter Cronkite to jump in. Then I got David Gergen to jump in. I used Walter Cronkite to get Gergen to jump in. Then I used Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood in the lake to get Charlie Rose to jump in. But really no, we weren't skinny dipping."

The actor's Ides of March co-star, Marisa Tomei, elaborated further on Conan O'Brien's show by stating, "We all wound up skinny-dipping. George said, 'When Walter (Cronkite) was there he jumped in the lake. Are you guys gonna jump in the first night?' "

She then revealed that, "Cronkite jumped in the water in a full tux, so the only thing to top that was to go the whole other way."

Apparently the straight-laced Charlie Rose instigated the entire adventure. Rose plays himself in The Ides of March, and co-stars with Tomei, Wood, Ryan Gosling and Clooney in the political thriller which opens today.
