When George Clooney married Amal Clooney, he was likely hoping his beloved would get along with his good friend and business partner, Rande Gerber, and Rande’s wife Cindy Crawford – and it seems his wish has come true. Rande revealed that his supermodel spouse has become close friends with the British barrister.
“They are very compatible,” Rande told the Evening Standard’s Deluxe magazine. “Both strong, intelligent, committed women.”
The two couples are so close that they both have holiday homes on the same estate in Mexico.
“Originally we were going to build just one big house for us,” Rande explained. “But George was single at the time and we have the family, and Cindy said “Hmm. I don’t think that’s such a good idea. Let’s build two houses”. It’s all still on one property, so it’s like breakfast at George’s place, lunch at mine. It feels like one big party.”

While Rande, who owns Tequila company Casamigos with George, has 15-year-old son Presley and 13-year-old daughter Kaia with Cindy, the businessman says he’s not sure if his actor friend will become a dad.
Although George would make a “great dad” according to Rande, the former model added: "I don’t know if he’s going to be or not.”
In the interview Rande also spoke about George and Amal’s Venice wedding celebrations and how the human rights lawyer has been coping with the increased media attention she has received since.
“It was a big party for three days straight,” he said of the couple’s nuptials. “We flew 100 cases of tequila in and we drank all of it.
“George and Amal knew what they were getting into,” he added of the couple’s high profile wedding. “Such a big event in George’s life is always going to get a lot of attention. You try to not let it affect your life as much as you can control it.
“But they are dealing with it brilliantly. Obviously George is used to it, so he knows how it rolls. We are stealth. We have some good moves.”
