Does George Clooney have a bad fake tan?

He's usually seen looking toned and very tanned, but have George Clooney's Lake Como neighbours found out his bronzing secret?

Despite having naturally olive skin, the 56-year-old's Italian neighbours are convinced George has fallen victim to the dreaded bad fake tan, with an insider telling National Inquirer he's "turned orange" since moving in back in 2002.

“You don’t get that tangerine color from sunning yourself all day like he would have you think," the source told the publication. "He’s been compared to Cary Grant and his deep, dark tan - but George owes his to a home tan solution, not the sun!"

And while you'd think the Ocean's Eleven would have the cash to fork out for a professional spray tan, the insider claims George is all about the DYI tanning job.

"It’s all patchy because he forgets the cardinal rule that you have to moisturize before fake baking!" Yikes. Nothing worse than a patchy fake tan, George what are you thinking?

And while the actor and wife Amal - and now their two twins Ella and Alexander - are bound to spend some quality family time at the star's Italian residence, the source adds that it doesn't matter what time of year it is, George is always looking bronzed.
