George Clooney became engaged to Amal Alamuddin in April 2014. That was actually a big surprise because he had sworn he would never marry again. The two met through a mutual friend and were wed on September 27, 2014. Earlier George announced that they had decided not to have children, but on February 9, 2017, it was reported by the CBS talk show, The Talk, that Amal was pregnant, and that twins were on the way. The kids turned out to be a boy and a girl and they appear to be extremely loved. It’s funny how the heart can change the mind.
Everyone knows everything about George Clooney, or at least that is how they feel. He has been the prized subject of Hollywood gossip for years. Amal Clooney is a complete different story. She is not a film actor like her Academy Award winning husband, but she is definitely a star in her own right. Amal is a Lebanese and British barrister (attorney) who specializes in international law and human rights. Prior to joining the London bar, Amal worked in The Hague at the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon. She frequently represents victims of mass atrocities, including genocide and sexual violence. She speaks English, French and Arabic.
The story of how they met is related in the timeline of their relationship published on Elle. It also includes some interesting details about their wedding and honeymoon.
“I met George when I was 35 and starting to become quite resigned to the idea that I was going to be a spinster.” “Then we met and started hiding out in my London flat and very soon it felt like, no matter what happened, I would never want to be with anyone else.” Five years later, none of that has changed. He is the person who has my complete admiration and also the person whose smile makes me melt every time.” ~ Amal Clooney.
“All I know is that it sort of changed everything in terms of what I thought my future–my personal future–was going to be. But I’ve always been an optimist about the world. I wasn’t always completely optimistic about how it was going to work out personally for me. But now I am,”~ George Clooney. .
Back in 2008 George helped establish Not on Our Watch, a governmental, international relief and humanitarian aid organization with Don Cheadle, George Clooney, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, David Pressman, and Jerry Weintraub. Their desire was to bring global attention to human rights violations in Darfur and beyond, while providing resources to assist in putting an end to mass atrocities around the world. They enlisted the support of artists, activists, and cultural leaders to raise awareness of its activities. This effort is still alive as the The Sentry.
Clooney gives not only his energy but a great deal of his personal income to humanitarian efforts. The Borgen Magazine stated that in 2019 that Clooney’s net worth was $239 million and it also lists the charities that he supports. He and his wife, Amal, co-founded The Clooney Foundation for Justice to advocate for human rights through accountability in the courts of the world. This organization TRIAL WATCH alerts its followers to an array of causes.
#62 FRI TAU
#71 FRI AQU
George Clooney was born on a Friday in the zodiac sign of Taurus. Venus rules both his INNER and OUTER SELVES. The #62 FRI TAU Dayology signature creates individuals with desirous but firm natures. They are attracted to lives of pleasure, but if materiality is unfulfilling, they have the capacity to invest their personal energies in meaningful activity. This seems to be the case with Clooney. People Magazine recognized him named one of their 2020 People of the Year.
Amal Alamuddin was born on a Friday in the zodiac sign of Aquarius. Venus rules her INNER SELF and Saturn (or Uranus) governs her OUTER SELF. The #71 FRI AQU Dayology Signature gives people a very unique set of personality traits. While their intentions are clearly disposed to what they consider to be worthy projects, they don’t like to feel that they must “answer” to anyone.
George and Amal were both born on Friday which is ruled by Venus. This planet creates a bond which not only brings two people together but helps to keep them together through their Day Rays. They are otherwise quite different and that keeps them interested in one another. This is shown by their Taurus and Aquarius Sun Signs. Oddly both of these zodiac signs are fixed and in square aspect, meaning once they make up their minds, they really don’t want to change them. So as long as they are “in love”, they will remain stubbornly so. And we see no reason why that should not be the case. Both are free to do what is right for themselves individually and together where their interests coincide. They have the resources to pursue their projects together and separately. Amal, as an Aquarian, is definitely the most independent of the two. She will always bring freshness and ingenuity into their relationship. George in his own way is conservative regarding property and furnishings and appreciates the good life. They are two very fortunate beings and they realize that they have what most everyone dearly desire.
