Clooney was speaking at an international forum on genocide prevention in in Armenia this weekend, where he will also hand out the the inaugural US Aurora Prize.
George Clooney had said he tries to cope with the “suffocation” of fame by doing charity work.
Clooney said he began tying to use his fame to highlight global issues after reading about atrocities being committed in Sudan’s Darfur region in the early 2000s. “Fame has an interesting element to it but if you tend to be followed round by a camera then you can feel suffocated at times,” the actor said.
She literally had no words.
Every woman on earth knew that Amal Clooney was a lucky woman when it was revealed that she was to wed George Clooney, though it seems she could hardly believe her luck either as his proposal left her stunned and speechless for almost half an hour. We can totally understand that.
Amal Clooney and George Clooney had a bit of a rocky proposal
Clooney had previously insisted that he would never become a married man, but changed his mind just six months into his relationship with Amal. And apparently it came just as much as a shock to her as it did to him because it took her ages to realise that he was trying to propose to her.
The actor has previously complained about celeb spotters invading his privacy at his holiday villas in Italy.
Celebrity self-importance time! George Clooney seems to have filed a restraining order against the rest of the world, with the news that the mayor of the Italian town where the actor owns two luxury villas has drastically raised the fine that can be imposed on members of the public getting too close to the properties.
According to the Telegraph, Roberto Pozzi, the mayor of the picturesque town of Laglio on the shores of Lake Como, confirmed that those who create “problems of public order” when gathering near either of his properties will be liable to a fine of 500 euros (or $550), nearly five times what it was before.

Some pulled out makeshift signs, while others went the high fashion route.
This week has been a rough time to live on Earth in general, but the raw wound is still the horrific attack that took place in Paris. Even the stars walking the Golden Globes red carpet had to acknowledge the tragedy and show support.

Many of them did so by wearing the Je Suis Charlie slogan on their arrival at the show. Amal Clooney said that she was wearing Dior, "customized in solidarity with the French people who've gone through a terrible week," according to Elle magazine. A "Je suis Charlie" badge was displayed on her purse, while her husband, George Clooney, also wore a similar button, according to ABC News.

Amal Clooney is fascinating. She was also fascinating as Amal Alamuddin. Just saying.
So you’ll never guess who Barbara Walters crowned as her “Most Fascinating Person of the Year”. Well, ok, it’s Amal Clooney (nee Alamudin), but you wouldn’t have guessed without reading the title first, right?
Amal Clooney - smart, successful, gorgeous, awesome.
Now, I’m not arguing with Mrs Clooney’s fascinating-ness here. Born in Lebanon and raised in London, she’s an Oxford graduate and a human rights attorney with clients like Julian Assange, Yulia Tymoshenko, and Kofi Annan. She’s also a humanitarian and has killer style. Yet, she was only voted Most Fascinating after she married George Clooney, largely based on her success in “locking down a man thought to be one of the world’s most determined bachelors,” as per Abc's wording. For reference, in 1995, Clooney told Walters that he would never take the plunge again after his divorce in the early 1990s. That interview became the basis for his entire public persona, to the point that Clooney told Walters in a 2006 interview that he no longer had to tell women he was dating that he wasn't interested in marriage since they'd seen the first interview with Walters.

Shock, horror! George Clooney is engaged and she's NOT a supermodel. But who is Amal Alamuddin, Clooney's new fiancee?
We’ve got a new idol. Not only is Amal Alamuddin a graduate of Oxford University, as well as a top humanitarian lawyer and UN adviser, she’s also engaged to George Clooney. Yes, someone has actually managed to get the serial bachelor to put a ring on it and even better, she’s not a supermodel!
George Clooney has dated a string of supermodels and famous actresses
Don’t get us wrong, she’s a very striking looking woman, but Clooney’s track record suggested that he was an incurable modelizer (for those who haven’t seen the early episodes of Sex and the City, a modelizer is a man who strictly dates models). Sure, he’s thrown a few actresses (and one cocktail waitress) in there as well, but he’s rarely veered away from the entertainment industry when picking his lady friends. Until now, and we're so pleased about it!
