George Clooney's fiancee thought proposal was a prank

May 7 2014, 12:20am CDT | by

George Clooney's fiancee thought his proposal was a joke.

The 'Monuments Men' actor - who is known for his love of pranks - asked lawyer Amal Alamuddin to be his wife over dinner at his house last month, but he had to pop the question twice as she initially didn't believe he was serious.

A source said: "George has been blown away by her passion, her brains, and sheer force of will.

"Frankly, he's been worried that someone else would snap her up if he didn't act, so he produced the ring and. much to his relief, she said yes.

"But he did have to ask her twice! Amal thought he was pranking her at first. Happy isn't a strong enough word to describe them right now."

The couple are said to be planning an intimate wedding in Italy this summer, with just a select few guests invited to the nuptials.

A source said: "The important people will be there, but this is private, not for public consumption, so it will be friends and family only.

"It was a long time coming, but when George commits to something he really sees it through. Amal is the one."

The 53-year-old hunk has resigned from his United Nations (UN) role as a messenger for peace, and friends say that is because he intends to team up with Amal, a human rights lawyer, for a new project.

A source told Grazia magazine: "He's hitching his wagon to Amal's so he wants a clean slate in every sense.

"They're not just planning to live together, they're planning to work together too. As a team they could be unbeatable."

Jon Hamm: ‘I don’t get the mystery of faith. I’m too much of a math guy’

Sep 16 2014 6:35am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I’m not sure if Jon Hamm gave this interview to The Irish Independent or if the newspaper has reprinted an interview Hamm gave with another outlet. For what it’s worth, I can’t find these quotes anywhere else, so I think this is an original piece. Jon is promoting Million Dollar Arm, Mad Men and various assorted projects, and as always, he’s brassy and opinionated. You can read the full piece here and here are some hig ...
