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.

Flipper you are absolutely right apparently she had the night
of her entire life....but never ever wants to go back to him
just like all the countless others. Thats the mystery 'it' must
be a real let down after that.

Uh...judging by your comments you are a huge fan of the looney's
or just plain sick not sure which.

Uma's fiance is the most wanted in British parties
being a Brit myself not sure if that includes ones that
are exclusive to certain races only. Thought not.

Uh?    

No not a fan...I just have an aversion to those who post insane rantings and try to pass it off as inside information. Not much of what you say makes sense. Maybe upping the dosage on your meds would help? crazy bitch :|

Why is Stan saying that reports that the boat caught on fire are untrue when there were no such reports? Every report out there says the fireworks exploded near the boat, not on the boat. Why is he pretending the reports said otherwise? Anyone have an idea? Is it possible that this accident was planned all along for publicity's sake, and Stan just assumed there would be reports saying there was a fire on the boat?

I just re-read the article in Digital Spy again, and it quotes Stan as saying "there was no fire." Digital Spy says "Reports of George Clooney's boat catching fire are not true, according to the star's representative" but doesn't quote Stan as actually mentioning reports, so maybe Digital Spy is who assumed there were such reports.

Hey Uh you are very ugly and disgusting, pretty much everyone would agree.

'Inside information', you are ignorant and stupid,
i have actually spoken to looney in person at a premiere
party as I have spoken to and interviewed many other high profile celebs. Also know his agent Stan in person. Have attended red carpet events and award shows.

Have contact with some of the staff at TMZ myself,
you pathetic piece of trash.

It actually would be "was." TMZ was referring to only George Clooney with an appositive in the middle of the sentence.

why are they celebrating the 4th of July in Italy? It is "America's" Independence Day. Do they celebrate Thanksgiving too?

Aside from what was obviously a hell of a scare, it is wonderful to see him happy. His new bella is obviously great for him, and talented and confident APART from him, which is great, too.

Hopefully, they get some peaceful moonlit cruises on that boat, too...smile. xo
