Clooney -- Nearly Blasted in Fireworks Explosion

7/6/2010 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

George Clooney barely escaped a 4th of July disaster in Italy this weekend -- when a firecracker exploded right next to a boat carrying the actor, his girlfriend ... and another A-list celebrity.

Clooney -- along with his GF Elisabetta Canalis, Uma Thurman, and several other friends -- was  floating on Lake Como ... when the explosion rocked the boat.

So far, it's unclear if anyone on board was injured in the blast.

They weren't celebrating the American 4th of July. I was there on the 4th of July a few years ago, and town near where he lives (Varenna) has a celebration called Festa del Lago The festival concludes with fireworks that bomb into the water at night.

Good morning electrizipper. Your story sounds wild and crazy. Did you hear it thru the grapevine? Anyway, too many people on board that vessel.

The fireworks display on Lake Como would have been held on June 26 for the San Giovanni Festival. Italy doesn't celebrate the 4th of July.

It would have served both of them right if they'd gotten blown up. Then we would no longer be subjected to their stupid fake publicity show. Clooney's a jerk and she's a whore.

It looks like they were shooting them (you can see a smoke trail) from an over-crowed boat where no one was wearing life-jackets. Damn some people are smart.
