George Clooney discusses his ‘normal’ life with Amal… but jokes that spending their honeymoon at Comic Con ‘didn’t play well’ with his new bride.

Women all over the world have dreamed about what it would be like to be proposed to by George Clooney – and now the man himself has revealed exactly what that involves.

The 54-year-old actor is dismayed by the obsession with technology in modern society and was left shocked when he met American President Barack Obama and watched everyone else who shook the leader’s hand filming their meeting on smart device, reported the Washington Post.“Tomorrowland” star George Clooney has revealed the 2014 proposal to wife Amal Clooney was “completely unexpected” by his human rights lawyer partner. “When I asked her, you know, we’d never talked about it…. Speaking at the “Tomorrowland” press conference in London on Monday (18.05.15), Clooney said, “I was at an event with the president a few years ago and everyone was shaking hands with their phones filming him, they can’t say they met the president, they can only say they filmed him. “You see the concerts down too and people are losing a little bit of their living and their life because they are just stood filming the concert rather than enjoying it.

George revealed that the glamorous couple are hoping to spend most of their time in Amal’s home country of England, once their house renovations in Berkshire are sorted out. ‘We’ve bought a place in a wonderful little town called Sonning and we are re-doing the house so that we can live in it, which would be nice. I might not be able to stand back up’.” The couple married in a romantic ceremony in Venice last year and George added: “I’ve got a real decision maker, a much smarter decision maker. And she also took her sweet time deciding. “Finally, I just said, ‘Listen.’ You know, I’m 53, at the time, or 52, I think, at the time, and I said, ‘You know, I’ve been on my knee now for about 28 minutes,” he said. “So I gotta get an answer out of this, ’cause I’m gonna throw a hip out.” Talking about how marriage has changed his life, he said, “All I know is that it sort of changed everything in terms of what I thought my future –- my personal future -– was going to be.” He continued, “I wasn’t always completely optimistic about how it was going to work out personally for me. When Graham asked if he has a normal life there, the Monuments Men star was quick to quip, ‘Yes, we do normal things – there’s a bathroom and we use it!’ ‘There’s a great pub we go to. It’s fantastic and we drink all kinds of pints of things,’ says the star, adding that he’s bought the pub a few bottles of his own brand Tequila to keep behind the bar.

George revealed he had to break the news to his new wife that they were interrupting their honeymoon to fly to Comic Con, so he could promote his new movie Tomorrowland. ‘First I had to explain that to my wife which didn’t play well. And then, the whole idea of spending part of your honeymoon with people dressed up like Captain Kirk and Star Wars’ characters somehow wasn’t easy to explain to my new bride.

But, I showed up and it was actually fun.’ George is busy jetting around the world promoting the sci-fi movie from director Brad Bird, but has revealed that despite their busy schedules he and Amal have a pact to never spend more than a week apart. While her husband does the promo rounds, Amal recently concluded her teaching term at Columbia in New York City and has resumed representing her high-profile clients, with the barrister flying to Belfast this month for her latest case.
