A cache of unexploded WWII munitions has been removed from Lake Como, just outside of George Clooney’s property.
A fisherman discovered the explosives, which were submerged in the lake just metres away from the actor’s Italian villa, the Daily Mail reported. The fisherman called Italian authorities, who sent a team to remove the weapons.
Clooney bought Villa Oleandra in 2002: a sprawling property that features a swimming pool, landscaped gardens, a tennis court and a private jetty.
Clooney, who is known for his quirky sense of humour, laughed off the bomb scare.
“This is not the first bomb I’ve experienced,” he said in a statement released by his representatives.
