Amal Alamuddin Clooney Is the Most Fascinating Person of 2014
George Clooney's beautiful wife Amal Clooney, has been chosen the most fascinating person of 2014.
The fact she was able to do something George declared in a 1995 interview with Barbra Walters he'd never do again, "I’m never going to get married again,” makes people want to know more about her.
The interview helped George out in his dating situation.
That interview became so well known that Clooney told Walters in a 2006 interview that he no longer had to tell women he was dating that he wasn't interested in marriage since they'd seen the first interview with Walters.
“You did my work for me,” he told her.
However, meeting Amal changed George’s mind about bachelorhood.
They met at a charity event in Italy in 2013.
Born in Lebanon, Amal moved to a London suburb with her family as a child. She went to Oxford, got a law degree at NYU, and while in New York, clerked for then-federal judge Sonia Sotomayor. When she returned to London, Amal became a well-known human rights attorney with clients such as Julian Assange, Yulia Tymoshenko, and Kofi Annan.
Walters called the wedding perfect -- from Amal’s bespoke hat to the spectacular wedding dress designed by the late Oscar De La Renta.
With her marriage to Clooney, Walters says, Amal joins the ranks of Jackie Onassis, Princess Diana and Kate Middleton -- everything she does, says or wears is officially...fascinating.
