George and Amal Clooney are still ''mad about each other.''

The 54-year-old actor and the 37-year-old British human rights lawyer got married during an intimate ceremony in Italy last September and their close friend Kathy Lette claims seeing them together is like ''watching a rom-com in front of you.''

The author, who is married to Amal's colleague Geoffrey Robertson, also isn't surprised that the Oscar winner proposed to the brunette beauty in April 2014 after just seven months of dating.

She told ''She's drop-dead gorgeous, your jaw hits the ground, but she's also very charming, funny, self-deprecating. She's as warm and down-to-earth as ever.''

Kathy has loosely based her new novel, 'Courting Trouble,' on Amal.

She explained: ''It's about a woman in her 30s in the legal world trying to change the world and make it a better place.''

It was recently revealed the couple are planning to start a family together soon.

A source said: ''They decided that it would be the right time. Amal isn't taking on extra work at the moment and just continuing with the cases she has.

''This is something they really want.''
