Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney at their wedding in Venice
GEORGE CLOONEY has revealed who has the brains in his marriage to Amal Alamuddin, and it is not the Oscar-winning actor. The revelation came as Clooney gave a speech at the SeriousFun Children’s Network 2015 – the charity set up by fellow actor Paul Newman, that sets up fun camps all over the world – and appeared to get confused numerically.
“Since 1988, these camps have helped over a half million sick kids and their families from over five, from over 50, not just 500 countries… that would be too many. There aren’t that many… Are there 500 countries?” he smiled reports US, before adding: “My wife’s the smart one.”
Alamuddin, a human-rights lawyer, has been regularly name-checked by Clooney since their wedding in Venice last year. At the Golden Globes earlier this year as he collected his Lifetime Achievement Award, he told Alamuddin who was sat in the crowd, “Amal, whatever alchemy it is that brought us together I couldn’t be more proud to be called your husband.”
