Opening up about stripping down with her castmates, Marisa Tomei dished about skinnydipping with George Clooney during her visit with Conan O’Brien last night (September 27).

While she hit the set for what was to be an "Ides of March" press stop, the 46-year-old actress' conversation quickly turned to her naked plunge into Lake Como with her co-stars George Clooney, Charlie Rose and Evan Rachel Wood.

While chatting about her time at Clooney's Italian mansion, Marisa told, “George kind of… we would up all skinny dipping, let’s just cut to the chase!”

As for why the sans-clothing swim occurred, she cites a famous former news anchor, explaining, “George said, ‘Walter Conkrite was here, when Conkrite was here he jumped in the lake! And he did it on the second night. Now, we’re here on the first night, we’re having wine, we’re having a beautiful dinner.’ So, he throws the gauntlet down. ‘Are you guys going to jump in the lake on the first night? Are you gonna top Conkrite?’”

Miss Tomei added, "[Conkrite] jumped in in full tux. So, the only way too really top that was to go the whole other way!”
