George And Amal Clooney Have Never Had An Argument
George and Amal joined CBS Mornings in an interview where they were asked how to have a successful and loving marriage. The couple recently celebrated their eighth wedding anniversary after meeting in 2013 via a close friend.
In response to the question, the duo revealed (per Yahoo) that love was an integral factor and that they were yet to quarrel in their almost decade-long interview. The “Up in the Air” actor explained, “It does start with love; that’s sort of the whole secret to it. It’s just been easy. Like the easiest thing in our lives by far. We’ve never had an argument.”
Amal confirmed her husband’s statement and revealed that some of their friends thought of the duo’s relationship as “madness.” “I think that it’s 99 percent luck just to meet the right person,” the lawyer said. “And I think the one thing we would take is to not be cynical… and I was surprised that you were not cynical or guarded at all and things just moved very quickly.”
George Clooney Said He Was ‘Taken’ By Amal On Their First Meeting
George and Amal were initially introduced to each other by a mutual friend and were immediately drawn to each other. They spent the next few months communicating with each other via email until finally meeting up for their first date in London.
Recalling the moment they first met, George said, “It was easy; it was the minute she walked in the door, I was just taken by her. And the fun part was, I didn’t know whether she would like me or any of those things. And then she’s this extraordinarily fun, smart, beautiful great woman, and I was just very taken with her, and I started writing her letters.”
The human rights activist attorney on her part revealed that she never imagined that she would spend the rest of her life with the 61-year-old. “I met him, and I thought, ‘I’m so glad that there is someone like him in the world,'” Amal said.
“I didn’t ever imagine that I would get to spend the rest of my life with him or that we would have this wonderful family. It took me by surprise.”
The Couple Have Two Children
After tying the knot in 2014, George and Amal welcomed their children, Alexander and Ella, three years later. The twins are five now, and according to the doting parents, their son is quite similar to George, perhaps too similar.
Amal joked, “Our son is now a big prankster. And you basically taught him these lessons, and he’s now pranking his dad back.” George also revealed that Alexander was not particularly impressed with his previous role as Batman, despite the character being the five-year-old’s favorite superhero.
“Alexander’s favorite superhero is Batman, and I say, ‘What’s your favorite superhero?’ and he goes ‘Batman,’ And I go, ‘you know, I was Batman,’ and he goes, ‘yeah, but not anymore,'” the 61-year-old said. “If only he knew how true that was.”
George Clooney Said His Wife ‘Changed Everything’ For Him
In a CBS Sunday Morning interview in 2020, George spoke about his marriage and how meeting his wife changed “everything” for him. “There is no question that having Amal in my life changed everything for me. No question,” the “Ticket to Paradise” actor said.
“It was the first time that everything that she did and everything about her was infinitely more important than anything about me, and then we had these two knuckleheads,” George added, talking about their twins. The actor explained that being with his family was “very fulfilling” and a twist in his life he didn’t expect.
