George Clooney wins over fiancee's family

May 7 2014, 5:28am CDT | by

George Clooney has won over his soon-to-be in-laws.

The 'Monuments Men' star, who got engaged to lawyer Amal Alamuddin last month, has made a good impression on her father Ramzi, who was skeptical when he first learned of their relationship because of his Hollywood status.

A source told RadarOnline.com: "[The family were] scared ... that Amal's accomplishments and education would be neglected in the press - and even by George.

"The family is extremely educated and takes pride in what they've accomplished in life, both in Lebanon and around the world."

The source claims Amal's parents "devoted their lives" to providing the best education possible for their daughter and they were worried that all that could be eclipsed by George's fame.

But now Ramzi has got to know the actor he approves of the 53-year-old star "wholeheartedly" and is said to be a fan.

The source said: "He clearly has the brains to go with his beauty, and he's working hard to prove to them that he deserves a place in their respected family."

Although Ramzi is "not very fond" of the media attention surrounding their engagement, he is happy Amal's accomplishments have been recognized.

The source added: "Her father couldn't be prouder of her and is beyond thrilled that the world now knows her name and what she has done. He jokes that George will become known as Mr. Alamuddin instead of Amal being known as Mrs. Clooney!

"[Amal is] not a gold digger. She has her own money and things going on, and George has told people that's why he knows he can trust her and wants to be with her.

"She isn't going to be arranging paparazzi photos like some of his past girlfriends have done."

Meanwhile, George's close friend Julia Roberts has described the engagement as "sublime".

The 46-year-old actress gushed about his new fiancee during an interview on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show'.

She said: "I think it is sublime. [Amal] is beautiful and smart and he is happy and that's what matters to me."

Michael Keaton Intrigues as ‘Birdman’

Aug 1 2014 7:15am CDT | Source: I'm Not Obsessed

Now this movie, ‘Birdman,’ looks interesting. Michael Keaton stars in it as a washed-up actor who was once famous for playing a comic character called Birdman. He seems to be trying to give his flagging career one last shot with a stage production that he wrote, directed, and will star in. RELATED: First look at Gal Gadot as comic character Wonder Woman. If you remember, way back in the day, Michael played ‘Batman.’ It was before George Clooney, and I think even before Val Kilmer. Does ...

Old People News: Sandra Bullock Celebrates 50th birthday with Chelsea Handler and Total Non-famouses

Jul 28 2014 9:24am CDT | Source: GossipGirls.com

I am not a huge fan of birthdays. I far prefer to be observing and blackmailing the center of attention than actually being the center of attention, and the idea of aging brings to mind morbid images of Lisa Rinna’s lips and Gwyneth Paltrow making her children’s friends eat kale chips. That said, one should celebrate one’s birthday with people of one’s own popularity and fame level, not a bunch of no-names. Yes, Sandra Bullock, I’m talking to you. Sandra Bu ...

Scarlett Johansson will marry Romain Dauriac next month in Paris or the Hamptons

Jul 21 2014 7:40am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Scarlett Johansson has been keeping quiet lately. Like, for the past two months or so, she’s been able to step back in a big way. It’s nice. It’s allowed us to examine other sketchy/fishy couplings, like George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin. But that doesn’t mean that ScarJo’s engagement to Romain Dauriac is any less shady, just that she’s not trying to convince us that this is the grandest love affair in the world or that they’re #initforlife. But shock of a ...
