How Did George & Amal Meet?

by Arielle Dachille

One can surmise that George and Amal Clooney's IRL meet cute was probably a most distinguished and fancy one. Black tie attire, a humanitarian cause, and many champagne cocktails were most likely involved. But how exactly did George and Amal Clooney meet? Did their eyes meet across a crowded ballroom, effectively stopping time? Did "Some Enchanted Evening" start spontaneously playing as they walked toward each other in slow motion?

I can tell you this, they were probably in an actual ballroom when they met. As The Mirror reports, Amal and the Cloonz supposedly made their first introduction through mutual friends at a charity fundraising event in September 2013. Said charity event was most likely in Italy. How do we know that? During a speech at a different charity event, Clooney mentioned that he and the human rights lawyer met in the land of spaghetti, gelato, and drinking wine with every meal. Flossy, flossy.

As a source told The Mirror, George was immediately enchanted with Amal and supposedly tried repeatedly to give/get those digits without any success. When he was like, "Lemme put my number in your phone, girl," she was supposedly like, "Nah, I'm good. I heard about you and all your millionaire playboying, you millionaire playboy." Eventually they reached the perennial contact info compromise. She supposedly gave him her email address, and he was like, "'Kay, I can work with that..."


George supposedly broke the e-mail ice by joking about how hot and attractive they both were. How droll! According to The Mirror's source, the actor supposedly said something to the effect of, "I think the reported hottest man in the world should meet with the hottest human rights lawyer in the world.” Amal supposedly thought that was cheeky and fun, and then decided she was into it. Ah, the things that George Clooney can get away with that would make so many other humans on Earth seem douche-tastic.


Their alleged witty email repartee lead to a steak date, and the rest is history! Still, it's kind of nice to know that these highly eligible humans had to deal with the whole e-courting shuffle, and all the insecurity and corny jokes it entails. We're all the same!!!
