Nick met Amal the first day George met Amal, and they met in Italy, which makes sense they met in Lake Como over the summer in 2013.
It should be around June after Monuments Men wrapped.(When was that? I remember George was celebrating birthday on set. )
There must be some sort of gathering regarding political and law circles.
And then over to July he and Stacy broke up.
In October we got our first public glimpse of Amal while he continued to hide the relationship during Gravity and MM presses. Amal was in MM London premiere with her mom. And she visited him on Tomorrowland set, joined him in the big New Year party in Cabo.
Later he brought her as a date to Whte House in the screening event and weeks later their relationship got public after a trip to Africa in March.
Engagement by the end of April, wedding in September.

I  think it was later than the summer, Sevens. Wouldn't surprise me to learn it was September as conventional wisdom states and I think they all already had friends in common.

I also think he and Stacey were over much earlier, probably not long after she visited Germany. She was seen with Jared at Coachella...........

That was a bit newsy to find out that Nick met Amal when George met her. Very interesting. I've always been real curious to know exactly how they met. And George has never given out too many details. He did say they met through a friend of a friend and they met in Como. And now this. I agree that George and Stacy were over by the time George was in Como for the summer of 2013.

I have always suspected there were 3 people in the marriage....I just never thought Nick (or Nina) was the third.....

Remember he is one of my tribe...though I sometimes think we were separated at birth....


We have a saying here, you may have heard it....."He was his Mother's vocation"....

Back in the day when Ireland was a Priest making factory, exporting to all corners of the earth large Irish family's traditionally singled out one son and one or two daughters to enter the religious life....What ofttimes happened would be that parents wanting to hang on to their much loved children left it till the last....Many times the youngest would be a harem scarem mad bad lunatic of a maggot of a boy, totally unsuitable for religious celibate life....but time and kids had run out and he was shipped off to the seminary pronto!....Hence the name "his mothers vocation"......

In this country we are genetically wired to look after our elders and respect them no matter what....These days  "his mothers vocation" is used in many other ways......and at last this may well sum George up (well it's an IMO)......

If I was Amal, I would have headed for that lavish Hotel near Como where they always eat...I would have sat in the restaurant with my mother, sister nephew and nieces....sat in full view as the perfect humanitarian family girl AND I would have set about Blowing the socks off Nick and Nina.....


It's all fan-tasy but could Nick have been the beguiled, bewitched.....Nick's got Nina, the Beauty Queen.....but did AC rep more......A happy, predicted by him,  ending to the fantasy he had for his son......And for George a different tune to play.....A different song to sing....

But what if it's not his tune....not his song.....what if "It's his fathers vocation".......


JMO, based on nothing but pure imagination and Guinness....Suspect

Well they met in the summer and Nick and Nina go to Italy at that time. So it makes sense they would meet .

I have always thought that the first time George and Amal met was at a party (and possibly a charity one) which also involved John Kerry and/or Kofi Annan both of whom have places on Lake Como.

The Clooneys have been connected with John Kerry since the early 2000s when Nick was involved in poiltics - and of course His Nibs bought l'Oleandra from John Kerry's wife.

Also going on at the same time was the operation to remove Syria's chemical weapons which Kerry and Annan were involved in and there were many meetings in Italy...

Just a thought........

Nick didn't arrange anything they met and fell in love. George would never go for an arranged marriage and I don't believe for a minute Nick and Nina would even try.

I think Nick predicting George would meet someone is something any father could do. He knew his son he raised him. I think George grew up with family and he knew George would

someday want that and find the one. No matter what he said about never marrying again and not wanting kids.

Just splitting these posts off from another topic as it seemed an interesting conversation in its own right.

George has always said that they met in September, but I think many of us had our doubts about that.  Personally, I think he said that to make it seem as though he didn't cheat on Stacy because their official break up was around July, I believe?  

He has a tendency to overlap girlfriends: Elisabetta and Stacy really did seem to be going on at the same time.  

On the other hand, I also think that relationships tend to end much earlier than any stated date: most people have the tendency to cling on quite some time after they know it should be over.

But on the other, other hand, I also wonder about the apparant speed at which he introduces his girlfriends to the public.  Going on public appearances (which is all I've got to go on), George seems to have a first date and then announces he has a girlfriend. I've always thought he was a bit more circumspect than impulsive, so I've often wondered if there weren't many dates before the official 'first' one that gets publicised.  Which would mean that his relationships begin sooner in real life than they do publicly.  So we're back to overlap.

Finally, on the left foot (I've run out of hands), I also think that his public timeline is necessarily a bit of a lie: he doesn't share that much of his private life and I've always thought that what we see is what he wants us to see, so trying to construct realistic timelines for any of his relationships is a bit of a fudge.

I see that I've argued myself into a corner here. HELP!

He has said they were friends and it took a while for her too agree to go out with him. I think the wedding date is probably the anniversary of their first date. Not  of when they met. I think that was in earlier in the summer.

As for when it ended with Stacy a few people believed it ended earlier they just didn't announce it for a while.

I think i remember reading that George said he likes to get to know women a way from the cameras. so i think other than
Eli we don't really know when his relationships start.

That's my sense too annemarie.

As I recall I thought the relationship with Stacy ended before he went to Como for the summer.

Despite the pictures we see of George out and about with or without women it is merely a snipet of his life. As much as we want to know what's gong on with him privately it is impossible for us to connect all the dots.

Katie - That corner you backed yourself into is where we all live when it comes to George! Very Happy We really don't know anything for sure, especially as he has been known to fudge the truth a bit when it suits him.

It's fun trying to analyze his life, but whether anything we say bears any relationship to reality is anyone's guess.

Maybe he will write an autobiography one day, and we'll know a little more... ( but I'm sure he'd fudge the truth there as well)

Sweety, I don't know that....One thing I know is what works for one...may not work for another....God made us all different for a reason to keep the world we live in interesting/ever changing....

Arranged, contracted, bolt out of the blue, love at first sight, co-incidence whatever....What is for you won't go past you....

This was meant to be....for how long it was meant to be? I cannot say...."very happy forever" is the destination....but no-one knows their destination until they arrive....I dunno

I remember that I've seen an interview with George a while ago. He was asked whom he would invite to Como if he could choose, no matter if they are still alive. I don't remember the whole group of people he named but Mies van der Rohe was one of them.
But George said that he invites interesting people and often asks friends whom they're suggest to be there. Since Charlie Rose mentioned in the one interview with George that he knew Amal before George met her, and they also both seemed to have known Kofi Annan, maybe somebody recommended George to invite Amal (since he also said: "She was a friend of a friend who came to visit."

But that's just a suggestion...

Kofi Annan and Charlie Rose as far as we know are the two obvious connections for both George and Amal. Though there could have been someone else within the human rights circle who could have been "a friend of a friend". I think it was PAN who mentioned that Kofi Annan had a place in Como too.

Well, Charlie Rose met Amal at an Aspen conference he was chairing but not sure he's the Como connection.

Kofi Annan seems very likely to me. He had just resigned from the Syrian peace process, Amal worked for him (but maybe not full time then) so she was and obviously still is friendly with the Annans. I think Annan knows Kerry well, and the timeline works as far as investigating Syrian war crimes via George's Satellite Sentinel At that time Syria was found to be using chemical weapons and a deal was negotiated to transport them out of the country. Oh, and of course Nick and Nina Clooney know both Kerry and Annan well.

But don't quote me!

Oh, and maybe don't rule out Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen from Google in this. Amal knows both of them........

Could be one of George's dinner parties couldn't it?!

I think George had an interest, she knew of his intrest, there was leap of faith and in an instant an amazing heart to heart connection.  I'm sure he makes a loving place in his heart and she loves him without measure.

Well, I'll toss this in here. Whatever the timeline on Amal, I think Stacy was seeing Jared (?) before her split with George, and I think she dumped him, not the other way around. And I think it may have pushed George -- along with the other things happening with him at the time -- to change his course and decide to fall in love.

Another thing, which I think I've said before. I hate that story about him pursuing her and her playing hard-to-get. From dating to an elaborately planned wedding in a year or less is the opposite of hard-to-get.

Hmmmm.  Seems like someone at Bunte is reading this forum!  English translation below:

Es ist die ganz große Liebe zwischen George Clooney und seiner aktuell schwangeren Ehefrau Amal. Doch wie ging sie eigentlich los, die Geschichte des ewigen Hollywood-Junggesellen, der in der schönen Menschenrechtsanwältin die Liebe seines Lebens fand?
Er scharrte die schönsten Hollywood-Frauen um sich, datete temperamentvolle Models wie [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Elisabetta Canalis (38), verzauberte mit seinem Charme Sport-Beautys à la Stacy Keibler (37). Und dennoch: Lange galt [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]George Clooney (55) als der Vorzeige-Junggeselle Hollywoods schlechthin – bis [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Amal Ramzi Alamuddin (39) in sein Leben trat. Sie zog mit ihm am 27. September 2014 vor traumhafter Kulisse in Venedig nicht nur vor den Traualtar, sondern wird ihn bald auch noch zum stolzen Zwillingspapa machen. Keine Frage: Seitdem die schöne Juristin in sein Leben getreten ist, hat sich ganz schön viel geändert.
Aber seit wann genau ist Amal eigentlich Teil von Georges Leben? Und welche zuckersüßen lebensverändernden Momente sind für so manch andere Traumpaar-Konstellation verantwortlich? Achtung, die folgenden Lovestories sind nichts für schwache Liebesnerven!

George & Amal Clooney





Der Moment seines Lebens sollte sich für George Clooney im September 2014 ereignen – genauer gesagt: auf einer Charity-Veranstaltung. Denn dort begegnete er der „heißesten Anwältin Londons“, zu der die gebürtige Libanesin Amal Alamuddin kurz zuvor gewählt worden war. Vom ersten Moment an von der Wahnsinns-Ausstrahlung und dem Esprit der Akademikerin, die sich mit prominenten Klienten wie Wikileaks-Gründer Julian Assange (45) oder auch Julia Tymoschenko (56) einen Namen unter Juristen und Menschenrechtsaktivisten machte, fasziniert, wollte er unbedingt ein Date mit ihr. Doch: Amal ließ ihn, laut verschiedenen Medienberichten, erst einmal zappeln.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]© Getty Images

Der erste Versuch des selbst politisch engagierten Hollywood-Beaus, ihr seine Nummer zu geben, scheiterte nämlich. Und auch die nächste Dating-Anfrage blieb erfolglos. Bis er ihr eine amüsante E-Mail schrieb und zudem auf den wahrlich pragmatischen Grund für das Treffen setzte, mit ihr über Menschenrechte sprechen zu wollen. Dem stimmte Amal tatsächlich zu – und der Rest ist Geschichte: Nicht einmal ein Jahr später läuteten die Hochzeitsglocken. Hach!

Kronprinzessin Victoria & Prinz Daniel von Schweden





Solch romantische Geschichten können sich nur um Hollywood-Stars ranken? Von wegen! Auch in Adelskreisen ereignen sich immer wieder Geschichten, die die Traumfabrik nicht besser hätte kreieren können – zum Beispiel die von [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Kronprinzessin Victoria (39) und ihrem heutigen Ehemann Prinz [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Daniel von Schweden (43). Mittlerweile haben die beiden zwei gemeinsame Kinder, gelten als absolutes Royalty-Traumpaar. Aber es gab Zeiten, in denen ihre Liebe unter keinem guten Stern stand. Denn als sich Victoria und Daniel im Jahr 2000 kennenlernten, hatte sie gerade erst ihre Essstörung in den USA therapieren lassen und war zurück in die schwedische Heimat gekehrt; der bürgerliche Daniel Westling arbeitete noch als Trainer in einem Fitnessstudio. Und genau dort wechselten die beiden auch ihre ersten Worte, als sich Victoria im Zuge ihres neuen Körperbewusstseins für ein Training in dem Studio entschied.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]© Getty Images

Liebe auf den ersten Blick war es allerdings nicht! Erst mit der Zeit gefiel Victoria der Humor des Sport-Profis so gut, dass sich daraus mehr entwickeln konnte, wie sie laut dem Magazin „BUNTE“ in ihrer in Schweden veröffentlichten Biografie „Königin der Zeit“ überraschend ehrlich erklärt. Doch auch, wenn daraus schließlich die ganz großen Gefühle werden sollten: Bevor Daniel offiziell der Mann an ihrer Seite wurde, hielten sie die Beziehung geheim – sogar vor Victorias bester Freundin!

Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis





Und auch bei diesem Traumpaar – das seine Liebe bereits mit zwei Kindern krönte – gerät die tatsächliche Kennenlerngeschichte schnell in Vergessenheit. Schließlich kennt man [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (39) und [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (33) längst als Einheit, auch vor der Kamera. Das heutige Vorzeige-Ehepaar lernte sich nämlich eigentlich am Set der TV-Serie „Die wilden Siebziger“ kennen. Doch es blieb zunächst beim kollegial-freundschaftlichen Verhältnis. Kutcher führte schlagzeilenträchtige Beziehungen etwa zu [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (54); Kunis war knapp zehn Jahre mit [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (36) zusammen. Ganz aus den Augen verloren sich die Serien-Kollegen jedoch nie.

Wie Mila Kunis 2016 in einem Radiointerview verriet, entwickelte sich nach ihren jeweiligen Trennungen zunächst eine Freundschaft (mit Extras), bis wirklich etwas Ernstes daraus wurde – die ganz große Liebe eben!

How George and Amal really met

Bunte.de Editor of BUNTE.de & Partner April 18, 2017 at 12:00 hrs


It is the very big love between George Clooney and his currently pregnant wife Amal. But how did she actually go, the story of the eternal Hollywood bachelor who found the love of his life in the beautiful human rights attorney?

He attracted the most beautiful Hollywood women around him, dated spirited models like Elisabetta Canalis (38), enchanted with his charms sporty beauties à la Stacy Keibler (37). And yet, for a long time, George Clooney (55) was the poster child for Hollywood's singledom parade - until Amal Ramzi Alamuddin (39) entered his life. On September 27, 2014, with the beautiful backdrop of Venice, she not only walked him down the altar, but also soon made him a proud twin-papa. No question: since the beautiful lawyer entered his life, quite a lot has changed.

But since when exactly has Amal been part of George's life? And what sugar-sweet life-changing moments are responsible for so many other dream couple constellations? Be careful, the following Lovestories are not for the faint hearted!

George & Amal Clooney

The moment of his life should take place for George Clooney in September 2014 - more precisely, at a charity event. For there he met the "hottest lawyer of London", to which the native Lebanese Amal Alamuddin had just been elected. From the first moment on, the fascination with the madness and the esprit of the academician, who made a name among lawyers and human rights activists with prominent clients such as Wikileaks founder Julian Assange (45) or Julia Tymoshenko (56) Date with her. But Amal, according to various media reports, was hesitant

The first attempt by the self-politically committed Hollywood Beau to give her his number failed. And also the next dating request remained unsuccessful. Until he wrote her an amusing e-mail and also put on the truly pragmatic reason for the meeting to speak with her about human rights. Amal actually agreed with this - and the rest is history: not even a year later the wedding bells rang. Hurrah!

Hate to sound bitchy... but why is this a topic of interest at this point???  They're married and are having twins.  Maybe she answered an ad he put in the paper. Maybe he answered her ad.  Four years later-  who cares???????????????


I suppose with them holed up while she is nesting- we have to find something  to banter about.

Are we too the victims of a slow news day here at COH?

Way 2- how do you decide to fall in love?  Or do you mean, how does he improve his images from literally a joke/punchline, to someone to be taken seriously  (look everyone- I'm a grown up now).  Even after all this time, I'm still not convinced it was fate that they met ( just as he was a punchline at the GG's)  fell madly in love, had a floating armada down a canal, and are living the dream. Don't even get me started on her "brilliant barrister" image.  She was voted hottest barrister, not smartest.   Something still remains rotten in Denmark.

Interesting actual facts.

We know from articles that George was in Como from July  - and with his folks - and with a film crew with well known cinematographer for an ad, and that he took the folks who work for him to dinner, and that Ellen Barkin was there and Sandra Bullock etc prior to Gravity showing in Venice......

Plenty of time to meet someone, chase them, phone them, email them 'for many months'.....

PAN- I still don't understand why this is of interest anymore.  Or is my confusion due to  my chocolate bunny withdrawl?

George being George and having the media interested in his love life for so many years I think it isn't surprising some media outlets still "speculate" on how he and Amal met. We still don't know the real details. George isn't saying just yet.

Donnamarie - George will never say. Why should he? As far as they're concerned it's ancient history. If anyone wants to go nuts speculating, so be it. It just keeps interest in G&A alive while they go merrily along living their lives and getting free publicity without having to lift a finger.

Fact is, they did meet, they did get married and she is pregnant. How any of it really happened, IMO, is something we'll never know, because even if George did go public I'm not sure he'd tell the truth. He does have a tendency to exaggerate and embroider a story. Smile

affraid   You lie Lizzy, you lie.

George never does any of that.  He is truthful, honest, humble of heart, the noblest of men.

PP -Yeah, right. And he walks on water, too! Very Happy ( I wonder where he keeps his halo and wings. Do you think Amal tries them on when he's not looking?)

Yep.

Basically, I'd like to keep this forum alive and if there's a story in the press about George, I'll share it here, even if it's stale. Sure, we'll never know exactly how/when they met, and yes, it's not our business anyway, but hey, at least we were talking for a while.
