Celebrity self-importance time! George Clooney seems to have filed a restraining order against the rest of the world, with the news that the mayor of the Italian town where the actor owns two luxury villas has drastically raised the fine that can be imposed on members of the public getting too close to the properties.

According to the Telegraph, Roberto Pozzi, the mayor of the picturesque town of Laglio on the shores of Lake Como, confirmed that those who create “problems of public order” when gathering near either of his properties will be liable to a fine of 500 euros (or $550), nearly five times what it was before.

Clooney's properties in Laglio, Italy are the subject of two land ordinances

The twin ordinances, which come in to force if a car or boat is parked within 100 metres of the either of the star’s lake-side villas (Villa Oleandra and Villa Margherita). This is to stop crowds of celebrity spotters and autograph hunters from clogging up main roads outside the property, but Clooney has complained in recent years that autograph hunters have disturbed him by ringing his doorbell.

Pozzi is quoted in the reports as saying that he “issued the ordinance to guard the solace of the actor, his wife Amal Alamuddin and their entourage.” Stay away, basically.

53 year old Clooney bought Villa Oleandra in the heart of the small town in 2002 for nearly $7.5 million. He typically spends the summer period at the property, but bought the second one a number of years later to increase his privacy from paparazzi.

The Hollywood A-lister, star of recent blockbusters such as The Monuments Men and Gravity, married his wife Amal Alamuddin in September last year.
