George Clooney just can’t stop talking about his wife, human rights lawyer Amal Clooney. In a new interview with David Letterman on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, he’s shared the moment he knew they were meant to be together.
“I felt that I had met someone who I would absolutely, you know, trade my life for,” Clooney confides. “I met someone who her life meant more to me than my life. And I’d never had that experience before.”
“She is this remarkable human being and now mother,” he adds. “When you see it in person, it makes you feel incredibly proud.”
Clooney also revealed how he and Amal met, explaining that his agent set them up in 2013. “I got a call from my agent who said, “I met this woman who is coming to your house, who you’re going to marry. It really worked out that way.”
George and Amal married in 2014 and had twins, Ella and Alexander, in June 2017.
