George Clooney's aunt, Starla divulged that her nephew's Ocean's Eleven co-star Brad Pitt may be his best man.

"They are good friends, I would think that's who he'd choose," she said.

When asked about details regarding George's wedding to human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, Starla – who is George's uncle Joe's wife – ruled out Cincinnati. "I did hear Cincinnati, since it's not that far from Kentucky... but apparently Cincinnati didn't win, it's not going to be the place."

She noted that George's parents, Nick and Nina were probably going to "scope out some stuff" when they fly to Italy next week. No word if Downton Abbey's still in the running.

Amal had set celebrity gossip columns on fire when it was speculated, and then confirmed late April that she is engaged to actor George Clooney, news that surprised even the Hollywood superstar's family. The Beirut-born, London-based beauty reportedly did not accompany George on his family reunion, as she was in London for the 2014 Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict.

Some members of the Clooney family were disappointed about not getting to meet George's fiancée, but a cousin, Ben, expressed his welcome, "Nina says she's a lovely girl and if she likes her, she's in."
