George Clooney turns 52 today, and we're celebrating with a look at all the stars he's treated to getaways at his waterfront villa at Lake Como in Italy.

Though George frequently gets in male bonding with friends like Matt Damon, Rande Gerber, and Bono at his Italian compound, his guests also include his girlfriends over the years. Click through to see who George has whisked away for lakeside romance, as well as which cast mates he regularly entertains.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner showed love yesterday afternoon at the John Varvatos 10th annual Stuart House Benefit. Ben and Jen were the day's cochairs, and they arrived together, posing for pictures separately and side by side, before heading into the event and taking the stage to help raise funds for Stuart House, a rape treatment center. Ben welcomed the time with his wife, telling reporters that he's been relaxing with his family since winning best picture for Argo. He said, "I've been able to really just enjoy my good fortune in the last couple of weeks and sit back and kind of just take it in and not do anything, just eat ice cream on the couch. It's been a really nice time to hang out with my wife and that sort of thing, so we're just enjoying it."
