It was recently reported that George Clooney finally found a woman who could change his mind about marriage – lawyer Amal Alamuddin. So what did the brunette beauty do to make the most sought after bachelor settle down?
According to Daily Mail, the British adviser to former UN Secretary general Kofi Annan played hard to get.
“Clooney asked her out for dinner and she put him off twice, saying she was too busy, before accepting the third time," a source said. “She was operating on the lines of 'treat ‘em mean, keep ‘em keen' and clearly it worked. Clooney was beguiled by her and she had the upper hand.”
The 36-year-old lawyer, who isn’t phased by her Oscar-winning fiancé’s fame, proves you can have brains and beauty.
According to ABC News, she graduated from the New York University School of Law in 2011 and specializes in international law. Alamuddin can speak three languages (English, French and Arabic) and is the co-editor of the book The Law and Practice of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.
What do you think of the intelligent lawyer who has stolen Clooney’s heart?
