George Clooney Admits He “Chased” Amal For “Many Months” After They First Met

Some years (shall we say decades?) ago, George Clooney was the bachelor from the great Hollywood. There was not a single reason why he should chase for some girls when the majority of the female population was chasing him.

But, times change, and when he met Amal Alamuddin (now Mrs. Clooney), he faced a real challenge. He revealed some fun details from this story:

“We met in Lake Como. She was a friend of a friend who came to visit and then I chased her for many months, calling and writing, those kinds of things.” At Ellen DeGeneres’ show, he admitted that “from the minute we met, we just sort of felt like we were going to be together.”

He planned the whole proposal but it turned out to be “one of those horrible moments”. He told Ellen: “I plotted the whole thing out. I had the ring hidden behind her. I had music playing, my aunt Rosemary’s gonna sing ‘Why Shouldn’t I.’ Everything was planned out . . . it was like 25 minutes. Finally I literally said, ‘Look, I hope the answer’s yes, but I need an answer ’cause I’m 52 and I could throw out my hip pretty soon.’ And she said ‘Oh, yes,’ and it worked out really well.”

A few months later, the couple was married and everything turned out just fine.
