George Clooney's lawnmower gift

Amal Clooney gave George Clooney a "giant lawn mower" for his birthday.

The 'Monuments Men' star was gifted the unusual present by his wife so he can mow the "beautiful front lawn" at his house in the United Kingdom.

He told Entertainment Tonight: "We have a beautiful front lawn at our house in England and I used to mow lawns when I was a kid.

"So she bought me this giant riding lawn mower that is sitting at the house right now and I'm very excited about putting that to work when I'm home."

Meanwhile, the 55-year-old actor previously revealed the secret to the pair's successful relationship is never having "huge gaps" without seeing each other.

He shared: "FaceTime - we will do that but mostly it is trying to not go too long without being apart, and you do the best you can. We spend an awful lot of time together. We don't have huge gaps.

"We are able to manage, so far. Between my work and her work and the things we have been doing, we have been able to manage it pretty well."

And George recently admitted he feared putting out his hip when he got down on one knee to ask Amal to marry him.

He shared: "I got down on my knee and said, 'I couldn't imagine spending the rest of my life without you.' And she kept looking at the ring and she was looking at me and she was like 'Oh my God.'

"And we now know because there is a playlist, so we know how long it actually took, and it's like 25 minutes, 25 minutes! Finally I literally said, 'Look, I hope the answer's yes, but I need an answer. I'm 52 and I could throw out my hip pretty soon'. And she said, 'Oh, yes' and it worked out really well."
