Sure, it’s a little past due now, but George Clooney is finally informing the world how to meet and marry him.
First off, he uncovered in a fresh interview with the Hollywood Reporter, get a mutual friend to bring in you. It might happen somewhere fantastic — say, Lake Como, Italy, where he has a home.
Be on your way to somewhere evenly fabulous — say, to Cannes, France, with a friend.
Then be beautiful and funny and smart — like, say, the woman formerly known as Amal Alamuddin.
Nobody’s expressing that recipe would work each and every time, but it did that one time, turning the notoriously avowed bachelor into a man and daddy of twins.
After their first reaching, in July 2013, “she delivered some pictures from when she was here, and we were writing one another, emailing, talking, generally about what was going on in each other’s lives, and over a period of time it became clear we were more than simply friends,” the “Suburbicon” director told THR.
They got together in London that October for a first night out while he was supervising the recording of his “Monuments Men” score at Abbey Road Studios.
“Then we travelled for dinner,” said Clooney, 54. “She said, ‘Let’s go to the place.’ It was one particular places that was extremely hip and trendy. So when we arrived, there have been 50 paparazzi there. But she completed it like a champ. And very quickly, things escalated once I used to be in London.”
He spent six weeks in London, and they went to Cabo for Xmas. Then to Kenya for a safari because apparently Amal loves giraffes.
In April 2014, he suggested and she said yes, with tunes by his later aunt Rosemary Clooney playing in the background.
A little more than three years later — without the help of fertility drugs, the new dad said, debunking rumors that popped up during his wife’s pregnancy — the few welcomed twins Alex and Ella.
“We never discussed [having children] until directly after we were married, which is funny,” he said. “There is an assumption that we didn’t want them. And then, after the wedding, Amal and I were communicating and we just sensed we’d gotten very lucky, both of us, and we have to share whatever all the best we’ve got.
“It would seem to be self-centered to just have that participate in us,” Clooney added
