The two were married in Venice last year and have continued to seem blissfully happy whenever they’ve been pictured together since. Following on from the view that Clooney “upgraded” by marrying the impressively clever and successful lawyer, the actor has now explained why he fell for her originally.
“She’s an amazing human being,” he told Entertainment Tonight‘s Nancy O’Dell. “And she’s caring. And she also happens to be one of the smartest people I’ve ever met. And she’s got a great sense of humour. There’s a number of reasons why.”
Clooney said that her high-powered, influential job makes him feel “proud”. Amal is currently helping Greece win back the Elgin Marbles, which are currently held in London’s British Museum. The lawyer has also recently travelled to Strasbourg representing Armenia in their case against Doğu Perinçek, the leader of the Turkish Workers’ Party, who was convicted of denying the 1915 Armenian genocide in 2007.
“I’m always very proud of her when I see her speaking at the International Court of Appeals in Strasbourg, you know, with her robe on,” he said. “It’s very impressive.”
“It’s a nice looking robe,” he also joked. “They could spice that robe up a little bit.”
Clooney also showed his appreciation for his wife’s incredible sense of style. Apparently, she has a “another bedroom” to store her wardrobe.
“It’s amazing, because she’s always – since the day I met her – she’s always had this insanely… it’s eccentric but it’s fun, sense of fashion,” he told ET. “How she does it while she’s got 11 cases she’s working on, and she was teaching at Columbia, and she’s still like, ‘I want to wear that dress.’ It’s crazy. It has been sort of fascinating to watch, because she has such great taste.”
