I’m sorry for the crappy quality of these photos. Even though George Clooney really, really wants us to know every (sketchy?) detail of his courtship and engagement to Amal Alamuddin, they’re pretty good at not being photographed in the traditional coupled-up pap-walk ways. Aw, that makes her special. Usually when Clooney does a Girlfriend Rollout, she gets pap’d right away and we have lots of photos to go along with the stories. Not so much in this case.
Anyway, these are some (blurry) pics of Clooney and Alamuddin out to dinner last night in Malibu. They had dinner with Bono and Rande Gerber and Cindy Crawford. I wonder if Cindy is mad about getting dethroned as Clooney’s Forever Crush? He probably still has a crush on Cindy, but Amal is sticking around to keep it in check.
The Daily Mirror had a new story about how George wooed Amal, and we haven’t heard some of it, I guess. We already knew that Amal played hard to get and she refused to give George her phone number. So first he e-mailed her. A friend told The Mirror: “It was all very tongue in cheek, but it got the ball rolling.” While Amal liked George’s tone in the e-mail, she still waited a few days to reply. And then just a few months later, he proposed with a ring that apparently set him back $600,000.
