11 Things You Didn’t Know About George And Amal Clooney’s Relationship
The whole world was surprised to learn that Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor was off the market…and this time for good! George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin have been inseparable ever since they met in September 2013 and exchanged nuptials the following year. There’s been a lot of buzz about this relationship because people are curious to learn about the mysterious woman who managed to tie down the now 56-year-old bachelor. What’s even more perplexing is just how smitten the Money Monster actor is! We admire how these two somehow manage to remain in the public eye while still maintaining their privacy. On the brink of celebrating their third year anniversary, here’s a look at 11 things you probably didn’t know about George and Amal Clooney’s relationship!
11. How They Met
George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin reportedly met through a mutual friend in September 2013 at a charity fundraiser, but they didn’t take their relationship public until October 24 when they were photographed for the first time having dinner together in London. At the time this photograph was taken, Clooney’s rep denied reports that they were dating, but today, they are much more open about their relationship. In an interview with Ellen, George admitted that it was kind of love at first sight when he saw the now 39-year-old lawyer which is probably one of the reasons their relationship seemed to move so quickly. “It was one of those funny things. From the minute we met we just hit it off. From the minute we met, we sort of felt like we were gonna be together,” he said.
10. She Turned Him Down at First
When George Clooney met the brilliant British lawyer at a charity event, he was completely taken with her beauty and quick wit, but Amal didn’t reciprocate the feelings. At least not at first. She did what most women do when they want to know how serious a man is — she played hard to get! When he offered up his number, she turned it down. A rumor has circulated that Clooney managed to get her contact information after the event, and sent her a “flirty” email. He used a pick up line that went something like this, “I think the reported hottest man in the world should meet with the hottest human rights lawyer in the world,” he wrote. According to a source at the Daily Mail, she refused him twice before accepting a date with the well known bachelor. “Clooney asked her out for dinner and she put him off twice, saying she was too busy, before accepting the third time,” said the source.
