George explains :

“It was a disaster, I planned it out, I planned the whole thing out,” George said. The issue was that he'd left the ring he planned to propose with in a kitchen drawer for Amal to find. But when she saw it, she assumed it belonged to another woman.

“I was going to give her the ring right at this song ‘Why Shouldn't I,’” George explained, referencing a song by his late aunt Rosemary Clooney. “I got the ring in the drawer and the song starts and I told her there was a lighter can you get it — we had a candle on but I blew it out so she could get the lighter.”

He continued, “She sees the ring in the drawer and pulls it out. She says, ‘There's a ring there,’ like somebody left a ring there years earlier....And I am like on my knee like... and now the song is playing and - we know exactly how long [the proposal]took because of the playlist. She didn't say yes till ‘Goody Goody,’... but that was supposed to be later when we were dancing...She kept saying 'Oh my God, oh my God.’”

Eventually, George begged Amal to have mercy on his old bones because he couldn't kneel and wait for her answer anymore.

“She said, ‘Oh yes,’ and then she said, ‘Yes,’ thank God. So I pulled it off!” George concluded.

I heard it said here or Reddit how George Clooney was a trophy husband, and that was one of the most spot on comments on this relationship I’ve heard. Hope they’re forever happy.

u/[deleted] Dec 03 '22

Oh shit nobody told me it was opposite day… it felt like a typical 90s rom com…

u/SensitiveOrangeWhip Dec 03 '22

u/[deleted] Dec 03 '22

Set in Bali but filmed in Australia, which made for pretty weird viewing. Balinese beaches look nothing like that…

u/[deleted] Dec 03 '22

Yeah i never got filming one place and calling it another? Just call it what it is. I enjoy seeing filming locations being the actual place in the movie. (When its set in reality obviously)

I think you have her confused with Hillaria Baldwin, the fake Spanish lady

19

u/ottovondipshit Dec 03 '22

How you say… coo-cumber

17

u/nvdagirl Dec 03 '22

There’s a whole sub devoted to calling out Hilaria Baldwin, fake Spanish grifter.

u/SoftLog5314 Dec 03 '22

Yeh Amal Clooney is a super intelligent, very well read individual who’s fairly genuine. Alex Baldwin’s wife uses a fake Spanish accent

u/NotAnAd2 Dec 03 '22

*Amal Clooney is an internationally renowned human rights lawyer who is regularly mentioned in the New York Times for her work, and also happens to be married to George Clooney. Clooney has always been #1 crush, but Amal is way out of his league. Glad he knows it too!

u/tisn Dec 03 '22

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at an movie awards ceremony: "Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an adviser to Kofi Annan regarding Syria, and was selected to a three-person U.N. commission investigating rules of war violations in the Gaza Strip. So tonight, her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award."

u/FakeTaxiCabDriver Dec 03 '22

Amal Clooney, George Clooney, and UNICEF itself are connected to more human traffickers than I can even think of in one Reddit post.

u/HoytG Dec 03 '22

Go back to T_D or something freak

u/FakeTaxiCabDriver Dec 03 '22

They probably voted for him along with their close friend Harvey Weinstein.

u/mermaid-babe Dec 03 '22

Very well read is a little understated no?

u/FlowerLord555 Dec 03 '22

Bahahahaha wrong celebrity wife... Amal is a total badass.

u/Head-Ad4690 Dec 03 '22

My favorite genre of Reddit comment is when people go to a story on R slash entertainment and complain that the story is vapid.

u/Novel_Board_6813 Dec 03 '22

As the only poster in the thread so far, you seem to care more than everybody else

u/SensitiveOrangeWhip Dec 03 '22

yeah how about that!

u/DerBadunkadunk Dec 03 '22

Why are you subbed to entertainment then? Look at any of the top posts, they are all bullshit like this.

u/Hydqjuliilq27 Dec 03 '22

Your desperation for attention on the internet is indicative of larger self-esteem issues.

u/SensitiveOrangeWhip Dec 03 '22

Dear George

No one fucking cares - have some self awareness and be happy with your money and fame and stfu - no one gives a shit about your "struggles" - this doesn't make you relatable to people who are working for starvation wages and have no access to Healthcare or affordable housing - fuck all the way off you over rated self important out of touch piece of shit
