Remember when George Clooney was one of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood? That all changed when he met and fell in love with wife Amal Clooney. Since the iconic Descendants star and the Lebanese-British lawyer became a couple in 2013, they continue to prove true love exists.
Prior to falling heads over heels for Amal, George was married to Talia Balsam. The Up in the Air actor and the No Strings Attached actress were together from 1989 to 1993. Following their divorce, George made his iconic acting career his No. 1 priority for nearly two decades before crossing paths with the human rights activist.
After walking down the aisle together in 2014, the couple took a few years to themselves to focus on their marriage and careers. Then they experienced parenthood for the first time when they welcomed twins Alexander and Ella in 2017.
Considering they’ve created a beautiful life together filled with love and happiness, George and Amal couldn’t feel more blessed. The stunning barrister even praised her handsome hubby as she gave her first-ever public speech about George while attending the American Film Institute’s Life Achievement Award Gala in 2018.
“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 at the time. “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.”
There’s no doubt the Academy Award winner’s feelings are totally mutual for Amal. In fact, George said it didn’t take long at all before he knew the doting mom was the love of his life.
“I think about three days in,” he once told Access. “I mean, I knew when I met her that she was so extraordinary and special. And then I wondered if I’d ever get a chance to date her.”
