George Clooney's best friend and business partner Rande Gerber has revealed how the actor and his  new wife Amal are coping with global media attention.

Gerber was one of several best men at the Clooneys’ high-profile wedding in Venice in September .

Of the media attention surrounding the couple, he told the Evening Standard’s Deluxe magazine: "George and Amal knew what they were getting into. 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 do you go out as much to public events? No, you don’t. You try to stay a little bit low-key until it blows over."

"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."

Gerber is married to Cindy Crawford, who has become firm friends with lawyer Amal. He added: "They are very compatible: both strong, intelligent, committed women."

The two couples share a holiday home named Casamigos (“house of friends” in Spanish) in Mexico, where they frequently spend time together.

Gerber said: "Originally we were going to build just one big house for us, 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.'"
