George Clooney has revealed the amazing moment he met his wife Amal.
Netflix has released a clip from an upcoming episode of David Letterman’s talk show “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” featuring a one-on-one interview with the “Ocean’s Eleven” star.
In the clip, Letterman asks Clooney about how he met Amal. “You met your wife, and excuse me if I get this wrong, and I just started twitching when I heard this, she came over to the house,” Letterman recounts. “You didn’t even have to leave the house.”
“I didn’t leave the house,” Clooney replies. “No, no.”
Amazingly, the couple’s marriage was preordained from the very beginning.
“It’s the wildest thing,” Clooney explains. “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.'”
“So, now this was arranged by an agent, your talent agent had done all the paperwork ahead of time,” Letterman jokes. “It really worked out that way,” Clooney says.
Clooney then adds another hilarious wrinkle to the story: his parents.
“And the funniest thing was my mom and dad were visiting, so my parents were there,” Clooney says, “and we just talked and we stayed up all night talking and then, you know, I got her email address ‘cause she was going to send me some pictures of my parents and then, we started writing and I didn’t really, I didn’t know if she wanted to go out with me. I just thought, you know, we were buddies and…”
“Who would, George?” Letterman interrupts, jokingly. “Let’s be frank, who really would want to go out with you?”
The full interview with Clooney on “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” will be available on Netflix Friday, February 9.
