With the level of public scrutiny George Clooney is subjected to, is it any surprise that fans worldwide are going crazy to learn more about his mysterious new fiancee? Her name is Amal Alamuddin and here are five things fans need to know about the woman!
1) Amal is a career minded woman that worked her way to the top
George Clooney has always been a well spoken individual and as he has aged, he has become more and more outspoken in the political world. Knowing that Clooney prefers intelligent conversation to wild parties, it is no surprise to learn that Alamuddin possesses many of these qualities herself. The 36 year old woman is an accomplished legal professional that works primarily in international law, criminal law, and human rights. Alamuddin’s most high profile case came in 2011 when she was to represent Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, as he fought against being extradited by Sweden.
Amal has also worked extensively with the different governments of the world. She has worked with many different United Nation outreach programs as well as established herself as an adviser to Kofi Annan, a former UN Secretary General. With how prevalent George has been in trying to make his voice heard in the arena of political discourse, this could be one of the leading reasons for their attraction to one another. It seems like Amal Alamuddin has established herself in a career path that the suave Clooney could have easily chased down and pursued himself. If nothing else, their intelligent political backgrounds would probably make for interesting dinner conversation.
