George Clooney wooed his wife Amal by writing her letters from his dog.
The movie star decided it would be great fun to beg the top human rights lawyer to consider representing his kidnapped hound, Einstein.
“I would write letters from Einstein to her saying, ‘I’m being held hostage and I need a lawyer to get me out of the room’,” the Ocean’s Eleven star told David Letterman during a recent taping of his Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman.
George also tried to impress the object of his affection by inviting her to a recording session at the fabled Abbey Road studios in her native London.
“I went to London to score a movie at Abbey Road, which is a pretty cool thing,” he recalled. “You’ve got a 150-piece orchestra and I thought, ‘If you’re ever going to impress somebody…’.
“I said, ‘You should come to Abbey Road’, and Amal’s like, ‘I’m at the Muslim Brotherhood right now, but I’ll come over right after…’ So she left this meeting where she was trying to hold the Muslim Brotherhood to account for something and we’re here just doing a dumb movie score. I was like, ‘Yeah, this is really important stuff we’re working on here!'”
Clooney and his wife recently celebrated her 40th birthday with a trip to Big Sur, California. It was Amal’s first birthday as a mum – she gave birth to twins Ella and Alexander in June (17).
