    Now where is that nut case Al whatsherface who was posting yesterday saying it was a pr stunt and we would get a denial?????
    What do you say now?

  • leila

    Then vampires and fairies are real after all!

  • LOL

    Let’s see if it actually …happens. LOL. And then start placing bets on how long it lasts. LMAO

  • Observation

    It’s so funny how she looks like a female version of him. He’s basically marrying himself! Congrats though.

  • GFW

    It seems too loud. Does he want loud? Does she want loud? Splattered all over the Internet and all? Why? Who cares.
    Like I said under the other thread, it is moving too fast. Men take nearly a year to emotionally connect to a woman especially a commitment phobe like George. I just hope it isn’t some subconscious payback to the last one who wanted just this then was denied to only move on quicker and find love and now a child. Love isn’t games. No one should be used as a pawn either. I’ll see it when I believe it. And even so I don’t give it two years. He’s infatuated it appears by someone actually smarter than he is.

  • GFW

    PS, Like I said in the other thread, I’m most happy for him/them. Love is the water of life. ~Rumi

  • anonymous

    He found his soulmate. Good for him! She seems real and not fake, like a lot of people.

  • Aisaiko

    Hmmm…. Sorry to be skeptical, but his commitment issues run deep. I don’t care if he jumps up and down on Oprah’s couch. I won’t believe this until after they say “I Do”. If it’s real, congrats. If it’s not, get help.

    @GFW: Did you just quote Jalalluddin Rumi? that’s really awesome!!!

  • Sayer

    Someone is trying desperately to keep his middle-age female fanbase. I wonder if the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler joke had anything to do with it.

    Clooney is 53. This woman is 36. She is still way too young for him.

  • SS

    Won’t believe it until they walk the aisle. And even then, how long? He isn’t the constant type.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RiMOAjL9wMw Living in a box

    And about our George, let wait and see where this engagement leads.

  • Sayer

    @GFW:
    “Subconscious payback”– George’s generic girlfriends, including the last one, know what they’re getting when they date him. They date him for FAME and publicity, especially the last one. Just like Leo’s generic girlfriends date him for fame and publicity.

    Clooney cared about the last generic girlfriend no more than he cared about the previous ones.

  • lol

    What kind of Law Firm confirms an engagement. Solictors and barristers firms are to be the sole of discretion concerning both partners and clients

  • who is this dude?….

    will the real George please stand up!! LOL…does anybody else find this whole thing incredibly weird??? it makes absolutely NO sense what.so.ever!!.. this IS George clooney, right.?! if this is “real” it will NOT last. she may have “conquered” him and gotten a ring but he is an (adamant self proclaimed) eternal bachelor.and will want out as quickly as he wanted in..its just who he (admitted) he is….just so odd!!!

  • THE WAY OF ALL THINGS

    Any primitive backwater third-world ape “lawyer” can be trolled as being either beautiful or intelligent, but will this farce last or even make it to the paper ceremony are the questions being asked.

  • Alexandra

    Oh the will marry, but after that whey will finalize a divorce in 2 years.

  • dog

    Why is he getting married? Didn’t he say the world is overpopulated? He can still enjoy different girls being single. He’s not a senior citizen.

  • Z

    @THE WAY OF ALL THINGS: You’re such an ignorant racist..and you sound very jealous to boot!

  • barbiegirl24

    When i first heard he was engaged i thought she was pregnant but after reading this it sounds more like a business deal too.

    At the same time she is very beautiful and intelligent. The type of woman any man would want to marry. I thought George Clooney was engaged back in the late 90′s, to a beautiful blonde school teacher, I think she was French??

    So many theories in my head. Now I don’t know what to believe.

  • george? engaged? Really??

    Everyone is scratching their heads over this one..people kept saying its just another rumor, a ka-razy one since george has been adamant about staying single. Hollywood is known for these kinds of things…but george?.. GEORGE?!?! …atleast george kept it real with regards to marraige-he got flack for it but stayed true to himself…yikes. this is certainly NOT georrge clooney. the original bachelor.LOL .agree with those who say it aint goin to last… this IS george -the forever bachelor, after all! LOL..this whole thing is certainly odd!.

  • Cate

    She’s intelligent, accomplished, successful and beautiful. He’s a lucky man!

  • Susan

    I think he finally realized that he is starting to look stupid with all the “girls gone wild” girlfriends. It worked for him for a while to be seen as a ladies man, but now he’s too old and people are literally making fun of him (hello tina fey and amy pohler). So he follows the Warren Beatty model and find a smart, beautiful, women with her own career to “settle down” with so the minivan majority will continue to swoon over him. The saddest thing here is that he has to live this way, making his life decisions based on what the public will think. The Tom Cruise movistar model is over, it just took clooney too long to get it.

  • Congrats!

    It will never change. Being a Romeo is fine when you are young and sowing your oats, but when you get older, you just look lecherous and silly. I’ve met so many women who love George Clooney. He has an “air” about him. He seems intelligent and he has a great sense of humor. Some men have to “calm down” first. It’s hard to marry when you are still Tom catting. Not only that, but who are the men we truly admire in Hollywood? I like men like Tom Hanks, Bale, Jackman — all married and family men. And Brad Pitt has always been popular, but he has never been a man who jumps from bed-to-bed. I think most people feel better about men like that.

  • Another Power Couple!

    If they can marry and make it work, I see a great partnership to make things happen and get important things done around the globe. I see Clooney finding a deeper purpose in his life besides acting and Hollywood. Yay!

  • Al’s Marmot

    That’s not a confirmation. That’s her work assuming that the fake story is true, the same as others have assumed it’s true. It’s not true.

  • Paula

    I think she is pretty and this link here is one of the better pictures I have seen of her
    http://bostonherald.com/entertainment/movies/movie_news/2014/04/george_clooney_gives_up_litany_of_loves_for_engagement

  • Paula

    @Al’s Marmot:
    I doubt a law firm would post something like that based off a rumor. I am sure she speaks with people there and they got the inside scoop.
    It’s confirmed.
    If it wasn’t his would have denied it by now.

  • Al’s Marmot

    @Paula: They’re posting it based off the the idiot published reports. Clooney is neither dating nor engaged to her. This is a load of crap being sent out by his publicity people, and he will be denying it.

  • blondie

    Geez Al, somebody should tell his parents who are quoted as being happy about it and calling her sweet..oh wait, they referred to all the girls as sweet. Wouldn’t it be nice if GC got married and nobody gave a #@$= ? I haven’t given him a thought in years til this..odd.

  • anne

    LOL @ 04/28/2014 at 11:28 am

    My mother and friends took bets that Warren Beatty’s marriage to Annette Benning would not last; they are still married. George and Amal just might make it as well.

  • anne

    Al’s Marmot @ 04/28/2014 at 7:32 pm

    Just curious. What if you’re wrong; George and Amal do get married? Are you then going to claim that it’s a publicity stunt never really taken place. I’m more than surprised that George is supposedly engaged. If it’s true I wish him all the happiness. Why are you so determined to trash the idea he might actually want to marry this woman?

  • Frankly…..

    … this is the only type of woman who COULD get George Clooney.She’s obviously beautiful; but she’s also EXTREMELY intelligent and accomplished. A lawyer who speaks 7 languages? SHE’S THE ONE WHO’S THE CATCH! She has her own life and her own money,so she’s definitely not a ‘mistress’ type at all! even if they break up she actually has a life to go back too; she won’t be dating lesser Hollywood figures or going on Daning With the Satrs.

  • Frankly…..

    THE STARS I meant!

  • https://www.mi5.gov.uk Sylvia Cheevers

    Amal Alamuddin is obviously Ugly.
    Only Speaks Arabic & broken French, apart from lisping English.

    & makes him look like a dumbass hick with no college education.

  • http://hwww.mi5.gov.uk Sylvia Cheevers

    Amal Alamuddin is ugly. So many tweets calling her that.
    She speaks Arabic & French a bit. Plus english with a nasal lisp..
    Makes Clooney sounpd like such a Dumbass hick college dropout.

  • Grand Canyon, AZ

    I wouldn’t call her ugly because of her oily skin or parrot nose.
    Her eyes do bulge out like a bullfrog but, hey, she IS educated.
    Kind of attractive in a manly way.

  • https://www.mi5.gov.uk Sylvia Cheevers

    Makes Clooney SOUND like such a Dumbass hick college dropout I meant!

  • Mari

    I’m not too surprised that Clooney is settling down. Now if GERARD BUTLER GOT MARRIED the world would be OFFICIALLY OVER!

  • Magda Van Goolen

    Do Ramzi K. Alamuddin & Baria Alamuddin know about George Clooney’s long time close companion gay hairdresser Waldo Sanchez?
    He could do Amal’s hair too.
    ha ha ha ha ha

  • 8675309

    @Magda Van Goolen:
    So what??
    There are many arranged marriages in Hollywood to cover up bisexual & gay actors. Cruise & Travolta even had biological kids.
    When no one buys the two-year contracts anymore….

  • GFW

    @Sayer:
    “Clooney cared about the last generic girlfriend no more than he cared about the previous ones.”
    -
    While I tend to agree the women were sex objects to keep him from trolling and getting a nasty reputation it could be he developed feelings for her but wanted to be the one to pop the question?
    -
    What I don’t understand is how is any better suited for marriage now? How has being a serial monogamist created tools needed for extended partnering? I’m defaulting, while happy for him/them, to some sort of gaming here. Don’t think he’s bi or gay at all. I think he’s in payback mode whether conscious or not. Again, I’m taking a wait and see stance. He isn’t down the aisle until he is and even then it might break off, like they all do, at the 2-year mark when infatuation ends. When things cool down and familiarity arrives so people can move forward differently: buy homes, have kids, develop themselves and find purpose beyond self-satisfaction, etc.
    -
    Granted he has his causes which they share and that is a huge connection between them. It is just men take much, much longer to emotionally connect. I think he has “fallen” in love rather than is rising in love.

  • VITAL STATISTICS

    GEORGE CLOONEY got engaged to a Jeff Goldblum clone?
    :O
    But his team is desperate to make it sound real. No one is buying it so now they try to give it more time by saying they met way before.
    FACTS:
    GEORGE CLOONEY met AMAL ALAMUDDIN IN October 2013.
    AMAL ALAMUDDIN IS 36 YEARS OLD.
    HER DATE OF BIRTH IS FEBRUARY 3RD, 1978.
    Amal is young enough to be his child. Pedophile tendencies in Hollywood are common.
    BARIA ALAMUDDIN IS MUSLIM.
    RAMZI K. ALAMUDDIN IS A DRUZE ISLAMIST.
    Nice parents. Lovely sweet passive father. Ambitious mother. (Nick Clooney has a secret crush on her… :O )
    ……
    George Clooney has become an alcoholic because of living a constant lie.

  • GFW

    Moving this here from the longer thread for what its worth…
    @Lena:
    I agree. I wrote in the “new” thread that how after being a serial monogamist has he developed the tools to prepare and suddenly make him ready for the biggest step a man ever takes, marriage?
    -
    Not to fault anyone love or happiness, but know what I mean? I just hope it isn’t subliminal payback and she’s a rebound girl who’ll get hurt and dumped when he comes to.
    -
    Men can go from good for right now girls to finding someone in what seems to some “suddenly.” They can. THEY have their own timers and timelines. This could be where he is? At 50 and no longer wants to be in pursuit so the next best one who comes along that ‘fits’ he’ll latch on to? I hate to say this is what that looks like but it is.

  • ASTROTURFER

    AMAL ALAMUDDIN IS YOUNG ENOUGH TO BE 53 YEAR OLD GEORGE CLOONEY’S CHILD

    And he LOVES HER ALCOHOLIC ANONYMOUS INITIALS TOO.
    THOUGH HE JOKES AND CALLS HER PINOCCHIO AND AMY WINEHOUSE TO HIS PR TEAM BEHIND HER BACK.
    FACT.

    Seriously, though,
    Amal Alamuddin was born on Feb 3, 1978. in Lebanon.
    George Clooney is 53 years OLD.

    PRETTY SICK CONSIDERING ALL THE RECENT PEDOPHILE STORIES IN HOLLYWOOD.

    George only met Amal last October, 2013. Apparently Clooney’s PR team in London approached Geoffery Robertson QC who works with Amal to arrange a dinner date.
    It was at the time Clooney was recording the soundtrack at Abbey Road Studios.

    The PR team had been trying to find a “MAIL ORDER BRIDE” candidate, so to speak, since March/April 2013 for George.
    To change the public image script.

    MORE PEOPLE ARE NOW CONVINCED HE’S GAY OR BISEXUAL LIKE TOM CRUISE OR JOHN TRAVOLTA OR ROCK HUDSON.
    THEY MARRIED BEARDS TO CONCEAL THEIR SEXUALITY AND LIVE DOUBLE LIVES.
    BUT CLOONEY HAD TO WORK EXTRA HARD TO TURN ON THE CHARM WITH AMAL.
    NICK LOVES HOW HER MOM IS HIS EQUIVALENT TOO. SECRET CRUSH??? Lol

    PR STRATEGY OF GEORGE’s PUBLIC LIFE WAS URGENTLY REQUIRED.

    AND NOT BECAUSE OF GEORGE CLOONEY’S LONGTERM CLOSE BOND WITH HIS GAY HAIRDRESSER WALDO SANCHEZ.

  • http://www.gchq.gov.uk/Pages/homepage.aspx Sylvia Cheevers

    @ASTROTURFER:

    It looks foolish for a 53 year old to still be clubbing & having fake bimbo short term flings.
    Clooney had no luck finding someone on his own that his Team approved.
    Too cowardly too. Passive-aggressive & immature.

    Amal Amaluddin was a great catch on paper his Team searched to find.
    Doesn’t matter that most people on Twitter joke about how she’s no beauty. She has education & money.
    Even his parents like her. Never mind what George feels. He can just drink more & more…..

  • Big Deal! She’s no catch….

    They both look like men.
    She’s more masculine than him too,
    She hasn’t won a Nobel Peace Prize or any outstanding accomplishment,
    Millions of human rights barristers/ lawyers in this world.
    Her rich Islamic parents paid for her education & her mom helped her get ahead through her own connections,.
    MILLIONS OF EDUCATED PLAIN WOMEN IN THIS WORLD.

  • Love?

    But does he love her or just another case of “compensating” or substitution or…settling??
    Sad if that’s just what it is.
    Decided to get married because it was time for a bride and just settled for anyone who sounded good to others & on paper.
    But there was no love.
    Prince Charles married Princess Diana (a woman he didn’t love) because the antiquated British establishment approved so. And look at that disaster.

  • Breann

    @GFW:

    AKA Warren Beatty/Annette Bening.

  • GFW

    Simon Cowell parody.
    Is he bisexual too?
    At least Warren Beatty married an attractive woman he loved.
    Someone he knew for years. Not a mail-order-bride.

    Anyway, with all the bad jokes about George’s age…17 years is sad.
