“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 his wife 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.”;
Speaking with ET Canada, Clooney and Roberts also reminisced about their longtime friendship, and Clooney explained the birth of his hip-hop dance moves in a “drunken Vegas restaurant.”;
