Hollywood top actor, George Clooney, was honoured with a lifetime Achievement Award by the American Film Institute at the Los Angeles Dolby Theater, the home of the Academic Awards on Thursday evening.
The 57-year-old actor was accompanied to the event by his gorgeous wife Amal Clooney.
Amal spoke for the first time about her husband George Clooney and their twins.
The 40-year-old human rights lawyer took to the stage and gushed over her husband.
Her words: “First, he is a gentleman. He is a gentleman in every sense of the word and in a way that seems so rare these days and perhaps even outdated’.
“I met George when I was 35 and starting to become quite resigned to the idea that I was going to be a spinster. Then we met and started hiding out in my London flat and very soon it felt like, no matter what happened, I would never want to be with anyone else…
“I couldn’t sleep when we were apart and I’m told that I would display a particular grin and head-tilt when reading his text messages or the letters he would hide in my bag.
“Five years later, none of that has changed. He is the person who has my complete admiration and also the person whose smile makes me melt every time.
“My love, what I have found with you is the great love I always hoped existed. And seeing you with our children, Ella and Alexander, is the greatest joy in my life…
“You fill our home with laughter and happiness and that’s even before the children have worked out that ‘da-da’ is Batman, a talking fox, and friends with Mary Poppins. I’m so proud of you my love.
“Congratulations on this great honor that you’re receiving tonight. I’m proud of you, but I also know that when our children find out not only what you have done, but who you are, they will be so proud of you too”
George smiled as Amal gave the sweet insight into their life together .
Celebrities in attendance included George’s father Nick Clooney, Miley Cyrus, Cindy Crawford, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Diane, and many more.
