Actor George Clooney is proving that chivalry is not dead. In fact, the 57-year-old Michael Clayton star recently cracked the cutest joke that proved he must be a great husband to his wife, Amal Clooney. On Oct. 12, George attended Variety’s annual Power of Women luncheon in Beverly Hills, CA, where he introduced himself to the crowd by using his wife’s name.
“Hi, I’m George and I’m Amal Clooney’s husband,” he joked as he introduced himself to the crowd. Although Amal was not there — she was giving a keynote speech in Philadelphia at the 2018 Pennsylvania Conference for Women — the room was still filled with countless impressive women. Celebrity guests included Jennifer Lewis, Thandie Newton, Elle King, Alyssa Milano, and Olivia Culpo, as well as honorees Tiffany Haddish, Regina King, Natalie Portman, Lena Waithe, and Emma Gonzalez, one of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students and anti-violence advocates who survived the deadly shooting in Parkland, FL.
This is certainly not the first time we’ve witnessed George being super cute over his wife. When talking about how he first met Amal during a TV appearance earlier this year, George revealed that he didn’t even need to leave the comfort of his home to meet her.
George was at his house near Lake Como, Italy, in July 2013 when a friend reached out to him. “A mutual friend of ours said, ‘I’m stopping by and can I bring my friend?'” George recalled. “And I was like, ‘Of course!'” George didn’t know any other information about Amal, but his agent did and made sure the Up in the Air star wasn’t going to waste this opportunity. “I got a call from my agent who said, ‘I met this woman who is coming to your house, who you’re going to marry,'” George said. “It really worked out that way.”
George and Amal have been married for over four years and have two beautiful children together, twins Ella and Alexander. When asked how the purpose of his life changed after he met Amal, George previously admitted, “I met someone who I would absolutely trade my life for. I met someone, who, her life meant more to me than my life. I had never had that experience before.”
