Oscar-winning actor George Clooney has opened up about his relationship with his wife Amal Clooney.

The couple first met in July 2013 and married the following year in September 2014. However, Clooney has admitted that meeting Amal changed everything for him.

Prior to their relationship, the actor was convinced marriage and kids were not for him.

“I was like, ‘I’m never getting married. I’m not gonna have kids. I’m gonna work, I’ve got great friends, my life is full, I’m doing well,” he told GQ in a recent interview. “And I didn’t know how un-full it was until I met Amal.


“And then everything changed. And I was like, ‘Oh, actually, this has been a huge empty space.'”

It was especially after the pair welcomed their twin children – Ella and Alexander – in 2017 that Clooney felt he was given a greater purpose in life.

“I’d never been in the position where someone else’s life was infinitely more important to me than my own. You know?” he said. “And then tack on two more individuals, who are small and have to be fed.”

The couple now resides in the UK together with their two children. Clooney is still acting and Amal is a top barrister as well as being a human rights activist.
