George Clooney Finally Tells Us How He Proposed to Amal

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's COSTUME INSTITUTE Benefit Celebrating the Opening of China: Through the Looking Glass - Red Carpet Arrivals

George Clooney, silver fox that he is, married Amal Alamuddin last September, and things have been going swimmingly, it seems. However, his marriage – and his engagement, actually – all came as a pretty big surprise to most people, and they all want to know one important thing: how did it all go down?! If you’re a Clooney fan and this question was on your mind, today’s your lucky day, because George has finally spilled the beans.

From CBS This Morning (via TIME):

“It was completely unexpected, so finally I just said ‘Listen, I’m 52 [at the time] and I’ve been on my knee now for about 28 minutes, so I gotta get an answer out of this or I’m gonna throw a hip out!” he told longtime friend Charlie Rose onCBS This Morning during a candid chat at the top of One World Trade Center Tower.

“I knew fairly quickly that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with Amal,” he said. “When I asked her we had never talked about it. There wasn’t like ‘Maybe we should get married.’ I dropped it on her!”

Clearly smitten, Clooney, now 54, talks sweetly about how his wife has made him happier than he has ever known, and the duo have vowed to never spend more than a week apart.

“I have someone I can talk to about anything and someone who I care about more than I’ve cared about anything, so it’s really nice,” he said.

Oh, Clooney! That doesn’t sound too romantic, but it does sound totally my style. Why make a big deal out of it all? They’re adults, they’re happy together, and sure, why not exchange some vows?
