But George Clooney had an even more formidable task this weekend – winning over the parents of his Italian love Elisabetta Canalis.
The photogenic pair - who've been dating about a year – flew to the town of Tresnuraghes, on the island of Sardinia, where she was raised.
George's introduction comes after the couple celebrated her 32nd birthday with friends near his Lake Como mansion.
It looks like the meeting with Cesere and Bruna went well as the 49-year-old seemed in an upbeat mood as he left.
