George and Amal Clooney talk first impressions of each other
We're back with more of our conversation with
Amal and a drawer.
Clooney look at the way these two look at
other. I can't get over this. The power couple joined us in the studio on a big day for them. their 8th wedding anniversary they told us all about falling in love raising their children and the one thing they say they've never done as we sit here today is their 8th wedding anniversary yes and
George's people said
Clooney at the time was a center
clooney's commercial get married yeah yeah come on married man eight years yeah because you were known as a confirmed bachelor but you met
clooney and what happened to you
george was no longer confirmed it was easy it was the moment she walked through the door alone I was took you for her and uh, and the fun part was you knew we didn't know.
I didn't know if you knew that she would like it or any of those things and then, uh, wait,
George, stop it and then we'd know if everyone would. like you do and you know and a d then you know that she is so extraordinarily funny smart beautiful great woman and you know that I was very in love with her and I started writing her letters what did you like what did you really find me what did she say all in the last, um, some of them came from his dog and it was like you know who's going to be mad at a dog, the dog, the dog needed a human rights attorney to rescue him from The Wine Cellar.
I remember, so of course you knew. who was all of them but he also took you with him or you thought he is a hollywood movie star. I don't know. I met him and I thought. imagine i would spend my life with him or we would have this amazing family yeah so now he took me by surprise he ruined my life i was a life it was easy for me yeah yeah what they do? because I know that at five they are very
talkative you know and me but we have made a terrible m well, we bought them Italian, oh, but we don't speak Italian, oh, okay, so we have armed them with a language with which they can make us hurt that's true and we don't really know they both speak Italian and French so our son is now a big joker and he's basically you've taught him all these lessons and now he's pulling a joke on his father.
Alexander's favorite superhero is Batman and he says you know I said what is your favorite superhero he says you know Batman and I see you know I was Batman and he says yes but not anymore. I was like he knew how true that was good, people are so thrilled that you're together and someone once told me that you know every time you're
talking to a couple. the question is not how do they make it work but how do they stay together what do they give
other that makes them stay together i think it starts with love
george i think yes i would love to and yes. it's kind of the whole secret, it's never been even that's funny, that's not even a question we'd think about, I mean, it's just been easy, listen, has it been easy, easy, like the easiest thing in our lives, by far, we have never had, is to imagine some of our friends that I have a cousin, actually, every time we see him, he is as if his
first question is: have you had an argument?
Would you like us to do it right now? It could be the
first time. No, I think it's one hundred percent good. I think the only thing I think we'd take credit for in a way is just not being cynical to be open, um and I was surprised that you weren't cynical or led at all and things just moved really fast that's kind of more questions for all of you because i can't cook my kids will have no memories of mom i used to do fill in the blank but until then he tells a common story about you guys not even boiling an egg properly i thought i was exaggerating i'm afraid it's all true so that when you actually put an egg on the stove with n or Sorry, we don't need to go into detail when we
first get it.
I thought I tried to cook and yeah, you know, I tried to make it fun. I bought eight copies and I had music and a glass of wine and I would do this and then I realized that every time I cooked he would make reservations and all of a sudden it would be date night so now I know what to do if I ever want to go out diner. I was the yes, thank God that you look at her with such amazement, sincerely, joy, you like it, well, I mean what not to look at. Right, I couldn't think of a better way to spend your anniversary. couldn't you? night just to make dinner but it really is something about the two of them together I think it's five very real I think there were some married couples who rolled their eyes as they never had an argument.
I think they have no reason to lie about that right. I managed to maintain privacy. You don't see pictures of them. They want them to have as normal a life as possible and to raise happy, healthy and responsible children. That is his definition of success. huh but you know the
other thing is the mall mentioned he's a prankster he's a legendary and one of the best dad pranks he's ever pulled which a lot of dads copy now works with little kids undiaper the kid with a clean diaper you put peanut butter or chocolate inside and then you give the diaper back to the baby, the baby starts eating it and then you act distracted like you're on your phone and then your partner walks in and is like oh my gosh oh my gosh the rude p rank you know and they are great Alby Awards the
first you know
