In a recent interview with CBS The Morning, George Clooney (don’t start swooning yet) let us into his proposal story; it is hard not to smile at the way he speaks about his wife, who is also a kickass human rights lawyer by profession.
I knew fairly quickly that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with Amal.
“I asked her, and she just kept saying, ‘Oh my God,’ and ‘Wow,’ and we just sat there. And finally, I just said, ‘Listen’ — I’m 53 at the time or 52 at the time, I think. I said, ‘I’ve been on my knee for about 28 minutes so I gotta get an answer out of this because I’m gonna throw a hip out. I might not be able to stand back up!”
Humour and fun aside, it is not hard to realise how much serious love George has for Amal. When asked about what has changed in his life after marrying her, he says:
“You know, well there’s some obvious things — closet space… I have someone who I can talk to about anything and someone who I care about more than I’ve cared about anybody.”
