After his marriage to actress Talia Balsam that lasted from 1989 to 1993, George Clooney became known as one of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood. But that all changed when he met his now-wife, Amal Clooney, a few years ago — and the rest is history!
While the actor, 57, was making film after film and was (and still is) one of the highest paid stars in the industry, we were all waiting to see who would finally sweep him off his feet. And The One ended up being London-based barrister who specializes in international law and human rights. That’s right, Amal, 41, an unknown at the time, was the person that stole George’s heart! Fast-forward to today, and the pair is now married with two kids. Just last year, the lawyer spoke out about the love of her life while at the American Film Institute’s Life Achievement Award Gala in Los Angeles.
“I met George when I was 35 and starting to become quite resigned to the idea that I was going to be a spinster,” she told the audience. “Then we met and started hiding out in my London flat and very soon it felt like, no matter what happened, I would never want to be with anyone else.” So sweet!
