It Took Amal Clooney 25 minutes To Respond To George Clooney’s Marriage Proposal

George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin Have Gotten Married!

Amal Clooney, you are a better woman than I.

George Clooney revealed how he proposed to his wife, Amal Clooney (née Alamuddin), during an interview for The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, and it makes my heart happy that she wasn’t quick to say yes to the eligible bachelor. Apparently, he knew she was the one after six months but she wasn’t so sure (or at least made him sweat out his well-orchestrated proposal):

“It wasn’t like, ‘Oh, maybe we should get married,’ or anything. I plotted the whole thing out. I had the ring hidden behind her,” George, 54, explained. “Everything was planned out and I’ve cooked dinner. And she comes in and she’s just come back from London. And usually she’ll dress up, and now she’s like, ‘Maybe we’ll just order in.’ And I go, ‘No, no, no, I’ve made dinner.'”

Indeed, George put a lot of thought into the special moment. For a personal touch, he even had his late aunt Rosemary Clooney’s song “Why Shouldn’t I” playing in the background. The White Christmas actress’ brother is the hunky star’s dad, Nick Clooney.

Amal, 38, didn’t catch on, though — until she saw the ring. George asked his love to get a lighter. When she opened a drawer she found the sparkly diamond.

“She’s like, ‘It’s a ring.’ Like, as if somebody had left it there some other time. I don’t know. And I’m doing all the moves you can do with my face,” George recalled. “And I got down on my knee and said, ‘I couldn’t imagine spending the rest of my life without you.’ And she kept looking at the ring, and she was looking at me, and she was like, ‘Oh, my God.’ And we now know, because there was a playlist, how long it actually took, and it was, like, 25 minutes.”

“Finally, I literally said, ‘Look, I hope the answer is yes, but I need an answer. I’m 52 and I could throw out my hip pretty soon,'” he continued. “And she said, ‘Oh, yes.’ And it worked out really well.”

Not sure why you’d want your Aunt’s one hit on while you proposed to your girlfriend, but hey, it WORKED!

What do you think Amal was thinking about during that 25 minutes of downtime?

Ben Affleck And Jennifer Garner Sleep In Separate Bedrooms

Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck Out For Lunch In Pacific Palisades

 Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck had a nice, PLATONIC Christmas.

The exes celebrated Christmas as a family in Montana, but don’t get it twisted- they did it FOR THE KIDS, and I guess to relax in snow? SO LA:

“They had a nice Christmas,” a source tells PEOPLE, adding that some relatives joined the former couple and their three children, Violet, 10, Seraphina, 7, and Samuel, 3, at the private, members-only ski resort in Big Sky, Montana, where the family arrived Dec. 21.

“Jen and Ben seem happy to be on vacation,” says the source. “They both enjoy the privacy of Montana.”

Affleck and Garner stayed on the same property in Montana, but have been sleeping in separate bedrooms – just like at home in L.A., where sources tell PEOPLE that Affleck has been staying in the guest house at the family’s home.

No funny business between these ex-marrieds.  But I bet their kids appreciated the together time, even if they might not exactly know what in the hell is happening with their parents and the media. Hopefully they’ll be blissfully ignorant to nannygate for a long time to come…

Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie Took A Quick Vietnamese Christmas Vacation

AFI FEST 2015 - Opening Night Gala & 'By The Sea' Premiere

A mini Vietnam vacay sounds pretty nice to me, too, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

The couple spent three days there touring around, which culminated on Sunday’s boat ride and then kayak through Halong Bay, a beautiful destination known for its limestone formations.

A witness said:

“They looked happy. [They were] holding hands, laughing.”


In Hanoi, the couple stayed at the luxurious Metropole hotel, visited the B52 wreckage, and roamed around the Old Quarter before flying back to Cambodia where Angelina films her latest flick, First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia.

Obvi the couple have a lot of love for Vietnam, having adopted son Pax Jolie Pitt from the country in 2007.

I wanna go!

Tay Tay Took Her Crew on Vay Cay

Taylor Swift covers 'GQ'; Talks 'Bad Blood'

Taylor Swift just wants to have a quiet birthday, everybody…right after she takes 125 of her employees on a crazy vacation.

Swifty’s turning 26 soon and everyone wants to know what kind of crafty extravaganza’s going on (myself included), but she shut all the questions down with an Instagram post of her band and crew post-lavish vacation to Hamilton Island on the Great Barrier Reef. That’s right, she took team 1989 to the GREAT BARRIER REEF.

“So stoked to be able to take my band and crew on a vacation at the end of a long and wonderful tour,” Swift wrote. “For all their hard work this year, they really deserve it. Thank you to Hamilton Island for taking such great care of 125 of the people who work tirelessly to make sure the 1989 World Tour stage gets built, the lights are on, the costumes are made, the guitars are tuned, and the show goes on. Aussie press, I love your enthusiasm but my birthday isn’t for 2 weeks and it’ll be a quiet one this year. Let’s take it down a notch:)”

When I do a good job my boss doesn’t chide me for taking free Diet Cokes. Taylor, any openings on your next tour?
