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.

Really, Uma is an A-list? The same person who wrote that, also thinks Georges boy friend is one sexy lady.

That boat is WAY TO SMALL to safely carry that many people and and I don't see a life preserver in sight. You can have lots of money, but still have no brains! Of course George is in Italy and they are a lot behind the learning curve. Don't hear too much about the Italian Navy or Coast Guard. If that boat caught fire, no one would survive. The gasoline fueled fire would engulf them all. It would be a terrible tragedy.

George should have been here with me and out of harms way.

Are you listening, Stan? I hope you're happy. You, too, George. I hope your Faustian deal was worth it.

If he takes Canalis to the Ischia Film Festival or anywhere else with him from this point on, I'll never see another one of his movies again. I'll donate the money I would have spent to a charity.

Who wrote this article? It must been an ilegal immigrant...Any person that is an American knows that the 4th of July is America's birthday holiday,(Not Italy's). You better start checking the papers on your employees...That's right it dosen't matter you are in Califorina..LOL
