George Clooney 'over Pitt's wedding no-show'


George Clooney was reportedly "pretty disappointed" that Brad Pitt didn't make his wedding.

The two guys starred alongside each other in the Ocean's franchise and Burn After Reading, and formed a close friendship. So much so, that when news George was to marry British lawyer Amal Alamuddin broke, Brad was widely tipped to be the best man. However, it wasn't to be, with the actor and his wife Angelina Jolie not at the Venice nuptials last month. Apparently they were too busy shooting their new movie By the Sea in Malta, with rumours Angelina didn't really want to go. "Brad didn't want to go without her. They pulled out very last minute - as of early August everyone still thought they were coming," a source told British magazine Heat. "George was pretty disappointed, but he's the most easygoing guy imaginable, so he didn't make a big deal of it."

It was also suggested that Brad was not that excited by the idea of running into his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. She is also good pals with George, although she wasn't at the ceremony either.

"Jen's still close to George, so Brad thought she might turn up. But she didn't go, because she assumed he'd be going," the insider added.

Luckily, the event was awash with A-list stars anyway, with Cindy Crawford, Matt Damon and Emily Blunt all in attendance.

In 2012 Brad and George were seen at a lot of the same events, often messing around and teasing each other. However, later that year George cleared up some misconceptions about their friendship.

"Brad is one of the great guys," he explained.

"We're good friends, but it's different from what people think - meaning we don't spend a lot of time together. He has been to my home in Como; we motorcycle together. But until recently, I hadn't seen Brad in a year."
