Perhaps some tequila shots? George Clooney joked about making it to his second wedding anniversary while attending the Motion Picture Television Fund's 'Night Under the Stars' benefit in L.A. on Saturday, October 1.

The Oscar winner, 55, and his wife, Amal Clooney, tied the knot in a lavish ceremony at Venice's Aman Canal Grande hotel in Italy on September 27, 2014. Famous pals in attendance included John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Bono, Anna Wintour, and Clooney's BFF and business partner, Rande Gerber, and his wife, Cindy Crawford.

"And they said it wouldn't last," George teased to Entertainment Tonight. "Ah, we proved them wrong!"

"We mostly drank," he added of how they celebrated. "I [made] dinner and we had a nice, a very romantic second anniversary."

George proposed to the British barrister, 38, in April 2014 after six months of dating. He popped the question with his late aunt Rosemary Clooney's song "Why Shouldn't I" playing in the background. "It wasn’t like, 'Oh, maybe we should get married,' or anything. I plotted the whole thing out. I had the ring hidden behind her. Everything was planned out and I had cooked dinner," Clooney recalled of the special day during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in February.

"I got down on my knee and said, 'I couldn’t imagine spending the rest of my life without you,'" he added. "And she kept looking at the ring, and she was looking at me, and she was like, 'Oh, my God.' And we now know, because there was a playlist, how long it actually took, and it was, like, 25 minutes."

Back in May, Clooney — for decades, Hollywood's most steadfast bachelor — gushed about their marriage. "I've never been happier in a relationship by any stretch of the imagination," the Money Monster actor told Esquire. "At 52 I found the love of my life and I'm really happy."

Clooney brought Amal as his plus one on Saturday night. "George and Amal were supercute and affectionate," a source tells Us Weekly.
