Amal and George Clooney pause for their anniversary
He’s a world-renowned actor and she’s an international human rights lawyer, so it should come as no surprise to anybody that George Clooney and his lovely wife Amal share a crammed calendar. It’s been a year, almost to the day, since the winsome couple tied the knot in Italy last September — and so the time drew around for the Clooneys to mark their first anniversary with some sort of celebration.
Only a few weeks ago, George joked that a commitment to speak at Jerry Weintraub’s memorial service would prevent him from marking this important moment in his marriage. “Unfortunately, I have to speak at Jerry Weintraub’s memorial. This is his last producorial way of screwing me over, that on my anniversary, I have to go to his memorial.” Death being a serious matter, but jest being Jerry’s way, George kept his word to say a few words. But he also took the time to show the comely Mrs. Clooney a good time.
Heading out for what onlookers described as a “quiet romantic meal” after the memorial concluded, George and Amal made their way to the Sunset Tower Hotel’s Tower Bar in West Hollywood on Sunday night. Looking glamorous and suitably bejewelled for the occasion, Amal enjoyed this much-needed pause with her handsome husband. Together, they broke out the bubbly and savoured the moment. After all, for a match made in Hollywood heaven, a moment to romance the pause should be mandatory!
