Fate: George Clooney, 56, has admitted that it was his friend who initially predicted he would marry wife Amal, 39, before he had even met her
‘I didn’t leave the house,’ he said. ‘No, it’s the wildest thing. A mutual friend of ours said, “I’m stopping by and can I bring my friend?”
‘And I was like, “Of course.” I got a call from my agent who called me and said, “I met this woman who’s coming to your house who you’re gonna marry.”‘
Hinting that their love story was fate, George fondly looked back at the meeting with Amal, saying that they ‘talked all night’ and afterwards, exchanged email addresses.
He continued: ‘The funniest thing was my mom and dad were visiting so my parents were there. And we just talked, we stayed up all night talking.

‘And I got her email address, because she was going to send me some pictures of my parents. So we started writing. I didn’t know if she wanted to go out with me — I just thought we were buddies.’
Smitten George and Amal went onto marry in a gorgeous ceremony at Venice City Hall in 2014 with the hunk’s close friend Walter Veltroni officiating the ceremony.
The couple welcomed their first children, twins Ella and Alexander, at the exclusive Kensington Wing of London’s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in June of last year.

Nick continued: ‘It was just different than all the other relationships I had seen him in, and I had watched them all from the time he was 13. This young woman meant something to him almost immediately. It was just amazing.’
