George Clooney on marriage to Amal Clooney: 'I watch sports and it kills her'

George Clooney and his beautiful wife, Amal Clooney, have settled into a lovely life together in New York, where they recently made a show-stopping appearance at the Met Gala. George hasn’t been tight-lipped about his feelings for his barrister spouse, but he recently offered a glimpse into their married life – and the one habit of his that Amal can’t stand.

"She’s an amazing human being," he told ET, as he sat down to talk about his new film project Tomorrowland. "And she’s caring. And she also happens to be one of the smartest people I’ve ever met. And she’s got a great sense of humour."

The Hollywood star, who celebrated his 54th birthday on 6 May, also marvelled at his wife’s professional accomplishments and her sense of style.

"She (keeps up to date with fashion) while she’s got 11 cases she’s working on, and she was teaching at Columbia, and she’s still like, ‘I want to wear that dress,’" George gushed.

While George and Amal are clearly completely in love, there is one slight hiccup in their domestic happiness. " I watch sports and it kills her, because I got into March Madness a little," he explained. "She got into that, but it was enough. So the next week was the Masters, and I’m watching that and she goes, ‘So every weekend we’re gonna be watching a sporting event.’ I’m like, ‘Actually, that’s how it works.’"

Earlier this week, George celebrated his birthday with Amal and some close friends. In an interview with Extra on Thursday, he cleared up reports that his wife had bought him a particularly lavish present.

"Ummm, I can’t tell you," George initially responded, when asked what gifts he had received from Amal. " But it wasn’t a Porsche. Did you see that?" he said of media reports. "Didn’t get a blender, didn’t get a Porsche. What the heck?!"
