George Clooney and his wife Amal Clooney celebrated their second wedding anniversary last week, and while on the red carpet at the Motion Picture Television Fund’s “Night Under the Stars” benefit in Los Angeles over the weekend, the actor revealed how they rang in the new year of their marriage.
“We mostly drank,” George joked during an interview with Entertainment Tonight on Saturday, Oct. 1. But in a more serious note, the 55-year-old Oscar winner said, “I made dinner and we had a very romantic second anniversary. Very civilized.”
“And they said it wouldn’t last,” George added of his and Amal’s marriage. “We proved them wrong!”
George and Amal tied the knot in a star-studded ceremony at the luxurious Aman Canal Grande hotel in Venice, Italy on Sept. 27, 2014. People reported that the “Ocean’s 11” star and the 38-year-old human rights lawyer were wed by their friend Walter Veltroni — former mayor of Rome — in front of their family and closest friends.
According to E! News, celebrities who attended their wedding included Cindy Crawford, Rande Gerber, Matt Damon, Luciana Barroso, John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Ellen Barkin, Anna Wintour, Bill Murray and U2 frontman Bono.
During his recent chat with Entertainment Tonight, George also gushed about Amal, who is currently working hard to convince world leaders to take ISIS to court for genocide. “Of course I’m proud of her,” George said, before admitting that his wife’s advocacy “comes with risk.”
The “Gravity” actor also briefly talked about Amal’s representation of Nadia — a Yazidi woman who was sold as a slave to the terrorist organization. “You spend an afternoon with that young woman [Nadia], there’s no way you couldn't stand up for her,” he said. “She’s so brave. She’s the one who's the bravest because she’s in the most dangerous [situation]. I think Amal’s decision to [represent her] was, of course, heroic.”
