The 36-year old top lawyer is a far cry from some of Gorgeous George’s previous girlfriends and the news of a possible impending Clooney marriage is something of a shock after so many years of interviews where he stated that he had no thoughts of marriage saying “I was married in 1989. I wasn’t very good at it”. This refers to the Oscar-winning actor’s 4 year marriage to the actress Talia Balsam who now plays Mona Sterling in Mad Men.
Despite many outsiders thinking that the choice of a top lawyer is a strange one, people who know George well will probably not be surprised at his choice. Although he is known as a big practical joker he is actually a very genuine man with a deep social conscience and has a strong and long-standing passion for human rights.
Amal is far from your average high street lawyer as you won’t see her helping people get off speeding tickets or helping them with house conveyancing as she works advising governments, the UN and has also worked as the adviser to the King of Bahrain. You can add to this impressive cv the fact that she trained at St Hugh’s, Oxford, the NYU School of Law and she is fluent in Arabic and French.
Another very important detail is that she was named by the excellent tumblr site Your Barrister Boyfriend as the Hottest Female Barrister in London in their 2013 poll. They said of Amal: “Amo, Amas, Amal. These are three short words that come to mind when thinking about this dazzling beauty. Amal Alamuddin may make some feel inadequate because she has achieved the seemingly unattainable ideal of contemporary femininity: She is both breathtakingly beautiful and formidably successful. Not only does she have huge warm eyes and silky, jet-black hair, but she speaks French and Arabic”.
The site is currently running a poll as to exactly what we should refer to this new power couple as. Amongst the frontrunners are: Alamooney, Clamal and our personal favourite, G-mal.
We are guessing that the next few days and weeks will see a host of photographers following the beautiful lawyer around town trying to get an exclusive photo.Having represented the former Libyan intelligence chief and the head of Wikileaks we are sure that Amal is more than capable of dealing with a few paparazzi.
