MANILA, Philippines – About a year and a half after their 2014 wedding, George Clooney shared the sweet story of how he proposed to his wife Amal Alamuddin Clooney, a human rights lawyer.
George, who is promoting the new film Hail, Caesar!, appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’ show, where he shared the romantic story – and that it took Amal quite a few minutes to give him an answer.
“It was I think about 6 months until I actually thought I might pop the question, and it was one of those horrible moments – you know, we didn’t talk about it…I plotted the whole thing out. Had the ring hidden behind her, I had music playing,” he said.
George said that Amal came in and suggested ordering in, but George said he’d made dinner. It did take a while for Amal to answer – George said it took about 25 minutes.
“Finally, I literally said, ‘Look, I hope the answer is yes, but I need an answer because I’m 52 and I can throw out my hip pretty soon!” he joked.
“From the minute we met, we just hit it off. From the minute we met, we sort of felt like we were going to be together,” he added later.
George, at one time considered Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors, and Amal, a successful trilingual human rights lawyer, wed back in September 2014. – Rappler.com
