They say that love comes to you when you least expect it, and that was certainly the case for George and Amal Clooney. 1 만원 꽁 머니 Neither one of them was actively searching for a partner when an unexpected turn of events brought them together.
It was 2013 and George had invited a friend over to his home in Lake Como, Italy. As he told David Letterman during an interview on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction: “It was the wildest thing. A mutual friend of ours said, ‘I’m stopping by, can I bring my friend?’ and I was like, ‘of course.'”
At the time, the actor had no idea that said friend would prove to be the love of his life, 10000 꽁 but he did get a head’s up from his agent, “[who] said, ‘I met this woman who’s coming to your house who you’re going to marry.’”
The serendipity didn’t end there. As he revealed, “The funniest thing was my mom and dad were visiting, so my parents were there. We stayed up all night talking and then I got her email address because she was going to send me some pictures of my parents.”
“I thought she was beautiful and I thought she was funny and obviously smart. She probably thought I was old,” 10000 꽁 머니 he joked of their first encounter. Eventually, Amal sent him those photos of his parents and the pair started messaging back and forth, keeping each other updated on their lives.
Even so, George admitted to Letterman, “I didn’t know if she wanted to go out with me, I just thought we were buddies.” Recalling his next move, he said, “I chased her for many months, 33카지노 calling and writing, those kinds of things.” Despite his trepidations, the feeling was mutual.
Their relationship wasn’t the only thing to take the actor by surprise, however. As he confessed in 2017, “I really didn’t think at 56 that I would be the parent of twins. Don’t make plans. You always have to just enjoy the ride.”
