"I thought if you had a successful career that you weren't really going to be able to have one great love in your life. And then Amal walked in."

When George Clooney said those words this past summer, it wasn't just a few good lines for his acceptance speech at the AFI Life Achievement Award event.

Instead, it helped demonstrate the Oscar winner's journey from Hollywood's most eligible bachelor to proud husband and father.  And yes, he has Amal Clooney to thank for this exciting chapter in his life.

"George and Amal have a great relationship," a source shared with E! News. "They have figured out the perfect work-life balance and are very similar in that they both are very focused on their work, respectively, but they also love to let loose, get down and have fun."

Today, the couple celebrates their four-year wedding anniversary with a bond stronger than ever. And while George's life was already pretty darn good before meeting Amal, the human rights attorney has changed the world around him in more ways than one. So how did it all begin?

George & Amal Clooney's Romance Rewind

"I didn't leave the house," George recalled to David Letterman when discussing his first meeting with Amal. "It's the wildest thing. A mutual friend of ours said, 'I'm stopping by and can I bring my friend?' And I was like, 'Of course.' I got a call from my agent who called me and said, 'I met this woman who's coming to your house who you're gonna marry.'"

"And the funniest thing was my mom and dad were visiting, so my parents were there, and we just talked and we stayed up all night talking and then, you know, I got her email address 'cause she was going to send me some pictures of my parents and then, we started writing and I didn't really, I didn't know if she wanted to go out with me," the Casamigos co-founder continued. "I just thought, you know, we were buddies."

What came next was a special relationship that was much more than your average friendship. In fact, George is more than happy to admit that he knew there was something special from the beginning.




















"I thought she was beautiful and I thought she was funny and obviously smart," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "She probably thought I was old. Then she sent some pictures from when she was here and we were writing each other, emailing, talking, mostly about what was going on in each other's lives and over a period of time, it became clear we were more than just friends."

Fast-forward to April 2014 when news broke that the couple was engaged after roughly seven months of dating. They would later enjoy a stunning wedding ceremony in Italy with family and famous friends including Bill Murray and Matt Damon.

"There was no doubt that we were the right couple and that we were the right team," George explained to The Hollywood Reporter. "And we were a team from right off the bat. Immediately, we felt we were just happy, and we have been happy ever since."



Celebrity Couples We Admire

That happiness has only continued once they became parents to not one but two kids. Back in February 2017, The Talk's Julie Chen confirmed the news and revealed the happy couple is expecting twins in June.

And while they tried to keep their journey to parenthood on the private side, both George and Amal couldn't help but gush about their growing family once Alexanderand Ella arrived last summer.

"[Having kids] has never been part of my DNA," George once told The Hollywood Reporter. "We didn't plan on it. We never talked about it until after we were married, which is funny. There was an assumption that we didn't want them. And then, after the wedding, Amal and I were talking and we just felt we'd gotten very lucky, both of us, and we should share whatever good luck we've got."

George Clooney's Best Roles

According to a source, George is an "amazing" dad who is "very doting" to the twins and to his wife. We're told Alexander likes to mimic George and has even expressed interest in wanting to dress just like him. 

"George is really embracing fatherhood and being married and seems almost surprised by how happy and natural he feels about it after so many years of swearing this lifestyle off," our insider added.   

And ever since he became a member of the fatherhood club, George says he's shifting his Hollywood career to focus more on directing than acting. "I'm 56. I'm not the guy that gets the girl anymore," the Ocean's Eleven star told The Sunday Times.


He's also more devoted than ever before to supporting causes near and dear to him and his family. Whether expressing his support for Parkland High School students, donating to March for Our Lives or working with The Clooney Foundation for Justice, the couple is committed to a variety of causes.

"They are really bonded by the very real goals they have in terms of their philanthropic ideas and initiatives," a source shared with E! News. "Their goals in that respect are totally aligned, which brings them even closer to each other. They take that very seriously."

And while he remains in the Hollywood spotlight, George is focused less on what's next and more on enjoying the moment.

"Right now my job is changing diapers and walking them around a little bit," George previously shared with The AP via Vanity Fair. "I really didn't think at 56 that I would be the parent of twins. Don't make plans. You always have to just enjoy the ride."

Got to flat out disagree with George’s statement that as an actor at 56 he’s not the guy who gets the girl anymore.  BS George!  All he needs is the right script.  There is something George will always have as a man and comes through as an actor ... his undeniable charm.  Though I figure that if George looks at scripts love stories aren’t necessarily what appeals to him.  I’m still waiting for him to take on that complicated character study type of movie reminiscent of his role in ‘Michael Clayton’ and of Paul Newman in ‘The Verdict’.

Yes you're right It's Me. Both films are very thought provoking and on very serious subjects about ethics and morals.

Maybe you could find an Italian translation of them or part of them on Youtube

Donnamarie - I think he's being realistic. He's too old to be the guy who gets the "girl" (especially with those god-awful white chin-whiskers!). Audiences for rom-coms and such are too young to appreciate him as the love interest.

On the other hand, there is a market (albeit smaller) for him to be the guy who gets the "woman". Sadly, there aren't too many scripts like that or like Michael Clayton or The Verdict. Those are the kinds of movies he seems to want to produce and direct - not necessarily act in.

At this point in his life he might want to stay behind the camera so he can have more time with his kids. It can't be lost on him that he had them late in life and might not have as much time with them as he could wish.

Agree Lizzy about George not wanting to play the guy who gets the ‘girl.’  I meant a more mature script like ‘Up In the Air’.  Regardless I don’t think he’s interested in love stories.  But he has said he’d jump at the chance to act in a movie like ‘The Verdict.’  Those type of roles don’t come around too often.  He has said that he doesn’t find most scripts that interesting to him.  I think he prefers to be behind the camera too.  Directing is far more satisfying.  I only objected to his idea that he somehow is not appealing on screen playing a love interest.  He is still handsome, sexy and charming ... and a damn good actor.

Very Happy You'll get no argument from me on any of that! He has said he wants to make the kind of movies they don't make anymore. Maybe, if that's where his focus is, he'll occasionally come across a part he can't resist.  can't see him totally giving up acting - and I don't think dinner theater on his island will quite cut it! Very Happy

George isn't believable (i.e. does not sell tickets) as a love interest - that's why he does buddy movies.

Who doesn't believe George Clooney's relationship with Amal Alamuddin-Clooney is authentic?

He had great chemistry with nurse Carol on ER .  He was so very much believable  in " Intolerable Cruelty " with Catherine Zeta Jones and he is great Juila  Roberts .

Media Savvy - Tell me he isn't a credible love interest after you've seen "Out of Sight" or "Solaris" or "The American" - since his more obvious roles don't impress you.

The problem isn't him. It's the lack of good scripts for mature actors.

Ladybug what are you talking about. No one was talking about Amal and George's marriage Media Savvy was talking about his acting in romantic roles.

Ladybug - Don't allow your view of the world to be defined for you by a bunch of websites and people you'll never meet instead of your own experience. Pretty much anyone can say anything on Wikipedia.

George Clooney is many things. "Actor" is only one word that defines him. Director, producer, writer, businessman, philanthropist and activist are others. As are son, brother, husband, father and friend.

None of that has anything to do with what we were talking about.
