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."

Analysis: How did Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie manage to marry so quietly?

Aug 28 2014 9:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Now that I’ve given myself some time to calm down from the BREAKING NEWS of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s undercover nuptials this past weekend, I’m contemplating how they managed to be so quiet. One of the few details we have is that “Pitt and Jolie also obtained a marriage license from a local California judge. The judge also conducted the ceremony in France.” I think they were working with someone they knew and trusted and maybe the judge pulled some favors so that ...

Matt Damon Pours Toilet Water On His Head

Aug 26 2014 2:10pm CDT | Source: WWTDD.com

Week three of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has devolved into celebrity video selfies and people using the ALS Challenge for entirely different political purposes. Orlando Jones poured bullets on his head in some rather awkwardly phrased rant about police violence in Ferguson. Carla Gugino and Malin Akerman made out and giggled. I think Lou Gehrig would have appreciated that. Now Matt Damon is pouring toilet water over his head to showcase the plight of unclean dr ...
