George Clooney and Amal Clooney have one of Hollywood’s most heart-warming love stories. A recent appearance on Drew Barrymore ShowThe Paradise PassStar spoke out about their romance and the first days. Here’s how George met Amal!
George Met Amal At His Lake Como House
Who would have thought George Clooney could be such a gentlemanly, old-fashioned man? Drew Barrymore interviewed George Clooney on her talk-show and revealed some of the most intimate details about their relationship. “What did you think when you met her?”Barrymore asked: Oceans Eleven actor.

“Well it was funny. She came to the house in Como with a friend of hers to visit,”George started. “The funniest thing is, Brian Lourd, my agent, called me. He had just met Amal at some other thing, and she said ‘Yeah, I’m going to Como with a friend of mine.’ And he called me up and said, ‘There’s a girl coming to your house who you’re going to marry,’ and I was like, ‘You’re an idiot, that’s not going to happen.’ And then in comes Amal.”
If the actor’s tale wasn’t swoon-worthy enough, he reveals that he courted Amal in a way that’s straight out of a fairytale. “I started writing her … a bunch of letters”Barrymore, of course, had the exact same reaction as we did: “You wrote her?”She exclaimed. “Like pen and paper?”
“Yeah,”Barrymore gasped while George replied in a nonchalant manner. “We still write letters.”
“You still write letters!”Barrymore stated in disbelief
“We leave them on the pillow,”George confirmed.
Amal and George tied the knot in 2014
There was no doubt in our minds that the actor is a passionate human rights lawyer. They were married the next year after their fateful meeting in Italy in July 2013. After settling down as spouses for a few years, they were blessed with twins in 2017. Since taking their relationship public all those years ago, George hasn’t shied away from talking about his wife.

Amal, however, has been equally transparent about her love and devotion to her husband. “I met George when I was 35 and starting to become quite resigned to the idea that I was going to be a spinster,” Amal confessed during a speech at American Film Institute2018 “Then we met and … I couldn’t sleep when we were apart. And I am told I would display a particular grin and head tilt when reading his text messages or the letters that he would hide in my bag.”
George and Amal claim that they never had an argument. Men, take note! You might think that letter writing is the key to a happy marriage.
