George Clooney is going to become Mr. Alamuddin

George Clooney finally found a woman worth committing to in fiancé Amal Alamuddin, a British-Lebanese lawyer, author and activist. She’s pretty amazing with plenty of her own accomplishments under her belt (accomplishments which, some might say, are far more admirable than George’s). For that reason, her father believes that once Amal marries George, he’ll have to fall in line and become Mrs. Alamuddin because she’s the real star of the show.

From Radar Online:

But after getting to know the movie star, the insider reveals, “Amal’s father Ramzi approves of George wholeheartedly. He clearly has the brains to go with his beauty, and he’s working hard to prove to them that he deserves a place in their respected family.”

At the same time, “Ramzi is not very fond of all the fuss and media attention,” the source says. “But they are actually happy that the media is recognizing Amal’s accomplishments.”

“Her father couldn’t be prouder of her and is beyond thrilled that the world now knows her name and what she has done,” the source says. “He jokes that George will become known as Mr. Alamuddin instead of Amal being known as Mrs. Clooney!”

And for the first time, Clooney, 53, seems content to share the spotlight with a worthy partner.

Amal, 36, “is not a gold digger,” the source insists. “She has her own money and things going on, and George has told people that’s why he knows he can trust her and wants to be with her. She isn’t going to be arranging paparazzi photos like some of his past girlfriends have done.”

To be completely honest, I’d heard of Amal before but wasn’t familiar with what she’s actually done in her life and career, but after reading, I was like, “Damn, girl!” She speaks three languages, she’s represented some really high profile clients, she specializes in international law, human rights, criminal law and extradition… she’s just bomb. No wonder George finally wants to settle down!

So, George Clooney just got engaged…

If ever a time came when the apocalypse seemed closer than ever, that day is today, because George Clooney is apparently engaged. The world’s biggest bachelor and sexy silver fox is said to have proposed to girlfriend Amal Alamuddin.

Keep in mind they’ve been dating less than a year, and the news is coming from the New York Post’s Page Six, but it seems pretty solid.

Alamuddin, 36, was spotted showing off an engagement ring as she and Clooney, 52, dined at Nobu in Malibu on Thursday night with Cindy Crawford and husband Rande Gerber.

A source told Page Six, “George and Amal hoped keep the engagement quiet, but they can’t hide the fact that they are very happy.”

When contacted on Friday night by Page Six, Clooney’s rep Stan Rosenfield didn’t confirm or deny the engagement, simply telling us, “I do not comment on his personal life.”

Huh, very strange. Is this all to get back at Stacy Keibler and her shotgun wedding/pregnancy? He hardly seems the jealous/vindictive type, but I suppose it takes all kinds. Bizarre!

Paging George Clooney: Ex Stacey Keibler is pregnant now

Stacey Keibler wanted George Clooney to put a ring on it, but he’s sticking to his guns when it comes to not wanting to get married again and pretty much said a big ‘Hell no!’ to walking down the aisle with her. After they broke up, she wasted no time in finding someone else.

After announcing her engagement earlier this month to boyfriend Jared Pobre (who is a DEFINITE downgrade from the Silver Fox), it’s all becoming clear why there’s such a rush: she’s also pregnant with her first child.

She announced the news, as you do, on Twitter and Instagram, posting the following picture and caption:

Look what we’ve got cooking! A Bun’dle of love!

Oh, brother. Bet George is pleased he dodged that bullet.

George Clooney Is On a Roll Lately

george clooney esquire

George Clooney is a man of relatively few words in the sense that you don’t see his grill in your face every day on the front of tabloid magazines and gossip sites like this one. However, he’s promoting a new movie now, so he’s doing some mag covers – classy publications only, of course – and has been spewing out gems to the likes of GQ and now, Esquire.

So, what’s the Silver Fox ranting about this time around? Oh, just Twitter and how stupid celebrities who are on social networking are. Well, can’t argue with that.

In an exclusive interview conducted at the superstar’s LA home, editor Alex Bilmes talks to Clooney about the pro and cons of fame, life as a single man and the endless Internet gossip about his sexuality.

On being a celebrity, he says: “Not that I’m comparing myself to Clark Gable or whoever but they couldn’t survive in this environment. They’d punch the shit out of some people. It requires a kind of Zen quality.”

The Gravity star also shares his views on social media, saying: “I think anyone who is famous is a moron if they’re on Twitter. It’s just stupid.”

Well, I mean, Twitter is really useful to keep up on news and it’s a good way for actors/musicians to keep their fans updated on their projects and tour dates, etc. There’s also the fact that they can forge a more “personal” relationship with their fans, which is, in this day and age, really important. An artist has to be liked, has to seem accessible. I think this probably applies slightly more to pop stars than it does to actors, per se, but I think George sorta seems like a grumpy old man with this. He doesn’t understand the role technology plays in the careers of young artists so he dubs it “stupid”. Oh, dear.

George Clooney Just Hasn’t Met the Right One Yet, That’s All

george clooney

George Clooney is the poster child for bachelorhood. Sure, he’s had some “long term” relationships, but everyone has always known that he would never, ever tie the knot. It’s like he’s allergic to weddings. He was married to someone called Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993 but swore off marriage after then. Damn, dude, was it that bad?

In any case, his aversion to locking shit down via legal documents has long been part of the Clooney lure, and it’s almost an endearing part of his personality at this point (for those who aren’t dating him, I suppose). But George has still got heart and says that he just hasn’t met the greatest love of his life yet. What will happen when he does? Well, they’ll probably date for a couple of years until she decides she DOES want to get married (even though she said she was totally fine with not tying the knot when the relationship started) and that she wants kids (which he doesn’t) and it’ll all go to shit and then he’ll find someone new.

What, too cynical?

I bet you’re wondering what George’s ideal woman is like, too, eh? Here’s what he told W Magazine:

“When I was a kid, I was in love with Audrey Hepburn. I watched Roman Holiday when I was 11, and I thought she was as elegant as anything I’d ever seen. And I fell madly in love with her.

“I also always loved Grace Kelly. I mean, when she comes out of the water in To Catch a Thief, I thought, ‘That’s the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen’.”

Well, there you go, women. Just look like an old Hollywood actress and George Clooney might fall madly in love with you!

Side note: What in Georges Seurat hell is that picture? AWFUL.

George Clooney Is Not A Fan Of Russell Crowe

George+Clooney

George Clooney got the ole Batclaws out when he lashed out at Russell Crowe, and I think that’s great, because Russell Crowe is kind of a dick. In an interview with Esquire magazine, Mr. Clooney said (via E Online),

He picked a fight with me. He started it for no reason at all. He put out this thing saying, ‘George Clooney, Harrison Ford, and Robert De Niro are sellouts’…He really went after me. And so I sent him a note going, ‘Dude, the only people who succeed when two famous people are fighting is People magazine. What the f-ck is wrong with you?

WORD. His publicist backs up the statement, saying, “George was asked about it and told the truth.” You go, Clooney!

Who do you think is more insufferable: Russell Crowe or George Clooney?

George Clooney Tells The World Why He Won’t Date Sandra Bullock

george clooney sandra bullock kid

George Clooney is totally cool with ruining pal Sandra Bullock’s dress, but he’s not okay with dating her. It appears that he thinks of Bullock as a “bro.” A solid bro. Or maybe it’s that she dated a “bro.” Basically, George Clooney comes off a Barney Stinson when explaining why he’s not into co-star Sandra Bullock ~~in that way~~. From E! News via E Online:

She was dating one of my best friends … There’s a certain bro code, you know what I mean? I’ve known her a long, long time.

That’s kind of funny. Even older, super famous, super rich, super successful celebs have the same relationship issues we do. I really can’t tell from this whether Mr. Clooney thinks of Ms. Bullock as a “bro” or if he feels that he would break the “bro code” because she dated one of his bros. Which bro?

What do you guys think? LOL WHY AM I EVEN THINKING THIS HARD ABOUT THIS. Lord.
