Ellen Barkin has found love again — and she has George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin to thank. The Sea of Love star is engaged to Alamuddin’s colleague, British barrister and Queen’s
“She is so happy and in love again,” the source confirms to Us, adding that the actress and lawyer got engaged over the holidays, after meeting at Alamuddin and Clooney’s September 2014 nuptials.
“Ellen met him at George and Amal’s wedding and they totally hit it off,” the insider explains. “It happened quickly but she’s totally fallen for him and flies to see him all the time.”
Aside from intelligence — Emmerson specializes in human rights law, public international law, and international crime law, among a bevy of other accolades — the source tells Us that Barkin, 60, fell in love with the 51-year-old’s charm.
“He is really handsome and smart and charming and swept her off her feet,” the insider says.

Ellen Barkin Engaged To Amal Clooney’s Colleague – Report [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


Actress Ellen Barkin is reportedly engaged to a British lawyer she met at George Clooney’s Italian wedding last year.
The Sea of Love star, 60, is said to have struck up a relationship with barrister Ben Emmerson, a colleague of Clooney’s new wife Amal, at the nuptials in September.
The couple embarked on a whirlwind romance and 51-year-old Emmerson proposed over the Christmas holidays, according to Us Weekly magazine.
A source says, “She is so happy and in love again. Ellen met him at George and Amal’s wedding and they totally hit it off.
“It happened quickly but she’s totally fallen for him and flies to see him all the time. He is really handsome and smart and charming and swept her off her feet.”
The insider reveals Barkin and Emmerson’s romance has even been given the seal of approval from the Clooneys, adding, “George and Amal love them together! They both love Ellen and Ben, so they think this is so great and love that they made a great match happen.”
A representative for Barkin had yet to respond to requests for a comment as WENN went to press.
If the news is true, this will be Barkin’s third wedding – she was previously married to actor Gabriel Byrne, the father of her two children, and Ronald O. Perelman, who she divorced in 2006.

Of their first meeting the insider describes: 'Ellen met him at George and Amal’s wedding and they totally hit it off.

Ellen and Ben were just two of the guests as the couple's star-studded wedding in Venice, Italy which boasted an impressive guestlist including: Matt Damon, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, model Cindy Crawford, singer Bono and actress Emily Blunt
The Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas actress has been married twice before as she was with Irish actor Gabriel Byrne from 1988 to 1999 followed by a six year marriage to American businessman Ronald Perelman from 200 to 2006. She also shares two children, Jack and Romy Byrne, with her first husband.
Ellen can soon be seen in comedy Happyish alongside Kathryn Hahn, Steve Coogan, Bradley Whitford and Jason Harris.
The upcoming series was ordered by Showtime, according to a January report from The Hollywood Reporter, and is set to premiere on April 26.

Good god. How awful that someone's relationship is reduced to this. Ellen Barkin is way better than this  taboid 'Clooney approval' response.

Hope he's done his research on her past failed relationships and gets an iron clad prenup!

How really nice for the two of them.  I never followed Ellen that much but she seems like a real character.  Fun. Bawdy sense of humor. Really good actress too.  If the two of them hit it off so quickly he must appreciate those qualities in her.  

I hope third time's the charm for her.

I'm just questioning the part that says he's "really handsome." Even without the adjective, that's a stretch. But, beauty and eyes and beholders and all that.

When I read the handsome part I admit I had to take a second look at the picture. The  only thing that really matters is that they love and treat each other right.

I love the last paragraph !





Ben Emmerson QC – the high-flyer representing Marina Litvinenko

Murder inquiry can only increase the reputation of the deputy high-court judge, Oxford professor and UN special rapporteur

Tuesday 27 January 2015 

Ben Emmerson QC, who represents Marina Litvinenko at the inquiry into the murder of her husband, is one of the busiest, high-profile barristers in the Londoncourts.
On Monday afternoon, he was summoned to give evidence to the Home Affairs Select Committee about his role as counsel to the rudderless Independent Panel Inquiry into Child Sex Abuse.

On Tuesday morning, Emmerson will be focused on the investigation into the killing of the Russian dissident Alexander Litvinenko, a case he has been pursuing for more than three years in the hope of unearthing the truth of who was behind the poisoning.
Emmerson, 51, is a specialist in international and domestic human rights. In the course of a prolific legal career, he has appeared before the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in Strasbourg, the International Criminal Court in the Hague and the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.

A deputy high-court judge and visiting professor in human rights law at Oxford University, Emmerson also holds the unpaid post of UN Special Rapporteur on Counter-terrorism and Human Rights. He has led investigations into rendition abductions and drone strikes around the world and reports annually to the United Nations General Assembly.

Emmerson was a founding member of Matrix Chambers, the legal powerhouse that includes the former director of public prosecutions Lord Ken Macdonald QC, Professor Philippe Sands QC and the privacy expert Hugh Tomlinson QC. Cherie Booth QC recently left the set.
A resonant courtroom voice and forceful translation of complex legal issues into easily comprehensible phrases has ensured that Emmerson is always in demand as an advocate.

He has often taken on unpopular causes. He was instructed by the International Criminal Court as counsel for the Gaddafi-era spy chief Abdullah al-Senussi, a potential suspect in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing.

Emmerson also represented Abu Qatada, the Islamist cleric – along with a number of other Belmarsh inmates – at a hearing of the Special Immigration Appeals Commission in 2003 arguing that they should not be detained without charge or trial.

That professional association was exploited by tabloid papers and critics to question his suitability for the post of British judge at the ECHR – a position he unsuccessfully applied for in 2012. He is a vocal supporter of the UK’s continued membership of the court in the face of Conservative threats to withdraw.

The Litvinenko inquiry, due to be broadcast online, will give Emmerson further prominence. 


In the past he has had to rein in his reputation, rubbishing the frequently reported fiction that he was the model for Mark Darcy, the gruff human rights barrister in the bestselling novel Bridget Jones’ Diary. “I was mortified by it,” he has said. “It’s not true.”

It seemed odd to me that someone who got burned by a marriage as badly as Ellen Barkin did would jump into another after only four months of dating.  Tabloid imaginations run wild...

Not sure she is, Missa, but who knows?

Could be the reaching of a certain age and wanting to get on with it!?

He certainly sounds embarrassed about the Mark Darcy comparisions........

Wouldn't mind betting there's a bit of fiction here.....makes a good story.........

She had a several-year long relationship with a man 30 years her junior, so she's been "getting on with it" for a while now. Wink
