From friends to roommates: George Clooney and wife Amal Clooney are moving in with longtime friends Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber. The Clooneys own a vacation home in Cabo, Mexico, not far from their celebrity friends. But the Clooneys have decided to sell the home and stay with their neighbors whenever they're in Mexico, ET Online reported.
The “Ocean's Eleven” actor reportedly does not need a bigger house now, so selling it would be a good option, added the website. The actor is currently staying with Amal in London, where she works as a human rights lawyer.
"When George was single and living a wilder lifestyle, having that big house for all his parties made sense," a source close to Clooney told ET. "But now he’s settled down with Amal -- those days are behind him.” So whenever the Clooneys vacation in Mexico, they will stay with business partner and friend Gerber and former supermodel Crawford.
Clooney has put the house up for sale and is expected to get $50 million for it. The luxurious house has seven bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, sea-facing swimming pools and many other amenities. The website also writes that Gerber and Clooney's houses were designed by the late Ricardo Legoretta, who was a world-famous architect, and have appeared on the cover of Architectural Digest magazine.
Gerber and Clooney are also co-owners of Casamigos Tequila, an award-winning liquor brand. Their wives are also good friends with each other. According to Hello magazine, Clooney and Gerber initially planned to build a single house for themselves in Cabo, but Crawford did not like the idea at that time because Clooney was still a bachelor then.
"But George was single at the time and we have the family, and Cindy said, 'Hmm, I don't think that's such a good idea. Let's build two houses',” Gerber told Hello in a previous interview. “It’s all still on one property, so it's like breakfast at George's place, lunch at mine. It feels like one big party," he added.
Now that Clooney is married, Crawford is happy sharing the house with George and Amal.
