George Clooney about his wife: Is their marriage okay?
These days, George Clooney is on cloud nine. Longtime wife Amal Clooney has a lot to do with it, though they’re rumored to be on some shaky ground due to recent squabbles. According to the Catch-22 actor, the grass became greener on his side after meeting his love bug. “I didn’t know how un-full [life] was until I met Amal,” revealed the actor in a new interview. It’s clear that his wife has changed his life for the better.
In a cover story for GQ, George Clooney revealed he’d never thought about getting married and didn’t foresee starting a family until Amal came in and turned things around. “I was like, ‘I’m never getting married. I’m not gonna have kids.’ . . . I’m gonna work, I’ve got great friends, my life is full, I’m doing well,” the 59-year-old said.
“And I didn’t know how un-full it was until I met Amal (Clooney). And then everything changed. And I was like, ‘Oh, actually, this has been a huge empty space,’” he admitted about the forty-two-year-old gem.
How the couple met
After years of getting acquainted with the bachelor lifestyle, George Clooney met international human rights lawyer Amal in 2013. He took Amal to the notable Abbey Studios in London for their first date. Just months later, the couple was engaged in April 2014. They were married in Venice, Italy with an exquisite ceremony in the fall.
Donning an Oscar de la Renta gown, Amal Clooney looked glamorous at the wedding ceremony. The dress was crafted from French lace, and featured hand-embroidered pearls, diamanté details, and a sweeping train. “He’s such an elegant designer and such an elegant man,” Amal said of de la Renta.
George Clooney stunned in a cashmere Giorgio Armani Suit. “Giorgio is the class act of all class acts,” the actor told People Magazine. “He’s been a good friend for many years and the night wouldn’t be complete without him.” Armani said of George, “it is a privilege and a pleasure for me to dress him for this occasion.”
Having children added meaning to George’s life
George Clooney & his wife welcomed twins Ella and Alexander Clooney in 2017. “I’d never been in the position where someone else’s life was infinitely more important to me than my own. You know? And then tack on two more individuals, who are small and have to be fed.”
Soon after the birth of his twins, George Clooney experienced a scary moment in which he thought he’d never see his kids again. In the summer of 2018, while in Italy shooting his Hulu series Catch-22, Clooney had a terrifying motorcycle accident. He tragically crashed his motorcycle into a car. The star was airborne, before hurtling to the ground. Immediately after the accident, Clooney says he was thinking about his twins.
“… My kids were like a year old, and mostly it was just the thought that this was it and that I wasn’t gonna see them again,” said Clooney.
Referring to the accident, George Clooney stated, “He literally turned directly in front of me. I launched. I go head over heels. But I landed on my hands and knees,” Clooney recollected. “If you did it 100 times, maybe once you land on your hands and knees, and any other version you land, you’re toast. It knocked me out of my shoes.”
As it is, it looks like Clooney is exactly where he’s supposed to be – smitten. We love to see it. What do you think of George Clooney as a family man? Do you like his wife, Amal? Let us know in the comments!
