George Clooney can't stop raving about his marriage to his wife Amal. The ER actor married Lebanese-British human rights attorney Amal Alamuddin (now Clooney) in 2014. Eight years later, the couple still seems madly in love. They are also parents to 5-year-old twins Alexander and Ella. The two met through a mutual friend and the spark between them was undeniable. Less than a year together they were traveling the world and George popped the question, reports PEOPLE. While speaking with Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet at the History Talks 2022 event in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, the 61-year-old Oscar winner opened up about his upcoming 8th wedding anniversary.  



 

 

“Eight years! And they said it wouldn’t last,” George joked. "Everything about my wife is sort of magical, as I think everybody has come to realize as they see her and hear her and hear what she stands for,” he gushed. "There's just not a downside to her.” Speaking about their influence on their kids George claims it's "the same thing I think everybody wants to instill in their kids, really. Which is to pay attention to other people," he explained. "In my family, the rules were always 'Challenge people with power, defend people with less power.' And if you can do that, you've had a good life."
