Amal Clooney’s AFI Speech Honoring George Clooney Sounds Like A Nicholas Sparks Movie

In the hopeless romantic wasteland that is Hollywood, we are left with very little proof that celebrities can actually have lasting romantic relationships. One of those small glimmers of hope is the marriage of George and Amal Clooney. After what truly seemed like a lifetime of bachelorhood, it looks like George has finally found in Amal what he was searching for during all of those single years. And in Amal Clooney’s AFI speech honoring her husband for his lifetime achievement award, it became clear she’s equally smitten by her superstar husband.

You see, while George, 57, has gone on the record to talk about his love for his wife before, Amal, 40, has actually managed to keep her feelings for husband fairly private. That is until now.

“When the AFI asked me to speak tonight I said of course. But George knows I am actually quite nervous," she started off. "It’s somehow easier for me to address a court on behalf of a detainee then for me to speak publicly as I am doing for the first time tonight about my husband." You see, everyone?! Even gorgeous powerful humans rights have trouble being vulnerable.

“I do with immense pride with all that he has achieved. Luckily without having to wear a white wig," she joked about what she typically has to wear in court. "Coming here I knew there would be a lot of people coming here to speak about George’s talents as a producer, as a writer or original screenplays as a leading actor as a supporting actor."

Boy, oh, boy, are his kids in for one super pleasant surprise.

Here’s to hoping we are all lucky enough to find a love like George and Amal’s!
