When George and Amal Clooney aren’t vacationing in Lake Como or attending royal weddings, they’re busy being one of the most envy-inducing relationships in Hollywood. Case in point: At an event in Los Angeles yesterday, George gave a sweet shoutout to his wife.
George was tapped to introduce activist Emma González at Variety’s Power of Women: Los Angeles event, and when he got onstage he introduced himself by saying, “Hi, I’m George. I’m Amal Clooney’s husband.” After tons of clapping and laughter, he continued with, “Oh I know, I know. I can read this room.” And he’s not wrong!
Amal wasn’t at the event (according to Entertainment Tonight she was busy giving a keynote speech in Philadelphia), so it’s particularly cute that George was clearly thinking about his wife and wanted to give a nod to her amazing humans rights work.
This isn’t the first time the couple has paid tribute to their relationship in a speech. Back in June, Amal gave a moving speech about George when he was awarded the American Film Institute’s 2018 Life Achievement Award. The human rights lawyer spoke about falling in love with him and his relationship with their children, 1-year-old twins Ella and Alexander. George, in the audience, teared up listening to her. Oh, true love!
