George Clooney Drinks an Ocean, or 11

George Clooney seemed to be in pretty good spirits (or maybe some pretty good spirits were in George Clooney) as he hung out at London nightspot Whiskey Mist Wednesday night.

The 47-year-old actor, still sporting the sweet ‘stache that he grew out for the upcoming Men Who Stare at Goats, was feeling A-OK as he knocked back a few with his buddies.

What could be the cause of his elation? Perhaps he was just pondering the many options that a man of his stature has at his disposal.

Or maybe he’s just relieved that he’s not carrying as much baggage as he used to. In these days of airport inconvenience, it’s always best to travel light.

And, apparently, a little bit tight.
