George Clooney ‘prefers’ to speak to Amal by phone rather than email


A bunch of the lower-tier tabloids have stories about George and Amal Clooney this week. As you can see, OK! Magazine even put Phantom Baby Clooney on this week’s cover. For what it’s worth, I don’t think Amal is pregnant, nor will she get pregnant any time soon. That’s why the unnamed source went to People Magazine last week – Amal wants us to stop Bump Watching her. We’re only supposed to be looking at her clothes and her fabulous, brilliant life.

There are some other interesting Alamooney stories out there, like this one that combines legitimate Sony Hack information with an eye-rolling piece of gossip about George and Amal’s marriage.

George Clooney has his very own bat signal! The star of 1997’s Batman & Robin — whose email address surfaced April 16 in WikiLeaks’ Sony hack database — “often uses the names of his roles as pseudonyms,” a source close to the Ocean’s Eleven actor reveals to Us Weekly. “He signs emails to friends with a simple ‘Danny Ocean’ and he loves leaving voicemails saying, ‘This is Batman.’”

After all, he’s Batman forever. “George gets a kick out of the fact that he played Batman,” says the insider. “He’s so proud of all his movies.”

Wary of hackers, the 53-year-old refused to create an email account until the early 2000s — his first address was a tribute to his O Brother, Where Art Thou? character, Everett McGill! — adds the insider. “He never trusted it. He has always worried about people finding a way to access his information.”

Now, he’s especially reluctant to hit send, even when corresponding with wife of seven months, Amal, 37. “George prefers to communicate with her by phone,” adds the source. “He loves hearing her voice!”

I can understand the (prescient) concerns about hacked emails, but does George realize that the same government agencies reading his emails are the same ones with FISA wiretaps on his phone lines? I am enjoying the idea of George calling up Amal and saying, “This is Batman, what time is dinner?” To which she says, “I don’t cook, a—hole. We’re going out tonight.” And Batman is all, “Girl, why aren’t you capable of heating up a g—damn bowl of soup?! BATMAN OUT.”

Oh, and this week’s National Enquirer has a story which I sounds like it came from these pages. The Enquirer’s sources say that Amal is so happy now that they’re in New York, away from Rande Gerber and Cindy Crawford. Apparently, Amal thinks Rande is a “frat boy” and she hasn’t “clicked” with Cindy at all. Amal wants George to spend his free time with her and her alone, but George wants to live up, singles-style with his bro Rande and Rande’s cool wife (Cindy gets it, man). The Enquirer interestingly notes all of the times that George has spent time with Rande and Cindy over the past several months while Amal is presumably at home, fuming. I really believe that George is so used to having girlfriends who just go along with whatever he wants, girls who are happy to spend every vacation with George’s circle of friends, and George doesn’t know what to do with a woman who isn’t impressed by “Cabo with Rande and Cindy yet again.” On this, I’ll give it to Amal. I hope she puts her foot down and weans Clooney off his frat-bro buddies.

    ’cause he’s old.

    • TwoDegrees says:

      He’s looking old true, but She looks horribly thin, not attractive at all.

      • Brittney B says:

        …uh, how is that relevant?

        Nicole was just offering an explanation for the title. It’s true; people who grew up without email are probably less likely to email their spouses for casual reasons.

  2. Maya says:

    Communicate via email? I can honestly say I have never sent my husband an email and instead calls or texts him if I have anything urgent to say. Otherwise I just wait until we are home and having dinner.

    I also think that George has finally met his match in Amal. She clearly enjoys the benefits like fame, money and recognition that comes with marrying George but she is also strong enough to put her foot down and demand equality – have to respect her for that.

    • Brittney B says:

      Haha, and I email my boyfriend when we’re in different rooms of the same house. Different strokes.

      (We work from home and when I find an interesting article or remember an upcoming appointment, opening a new tab is easier than getting up and disturbing his work calls, etc., for something that’s not urgent.)

  3. Izzy says:

    A man who likes to hear his wife’s voice? Imagine that!

  4. Christin says:

    I tend to believe the part about not clicking with his “bro” and his wife. I don’t think he can go cold turkey, though, and that may be where compromise (or lack thereof) starts to rock the boat.

  5. evasmom says:

    Lol. You guys slay me. I love celebitchy posters:)

  6. Jen43 says:

    I do believe Amal doesn’t care forCloomey’s friends. I hope George realized this before marriage, I hope for Amal it isn’t one of those things that don’t irritate too much initially, but one the newness of marriage wears off, it bugs the sh*t out of you. That would spell trouble.

    • claire says:

      This is just the same treatment these magazines gave Brad and Angie. I mean, it’s practically identical. Angie hated all of Brad’s friends. Angie wants to live in so-and-so city to not see them. Blah blah. These magazines always demonize the female significant others of this group of guys.

      • noway says:

        I am so with you on this too. Come on gossip mags and sites, if you are going to create something at least be a bit more original. I want something more interesting than this drivel.

  7. Truly says:

    This is Cloonzy’s way of letting everyone know he ACTUALLY talks to his wife!

    • Santolina says:

      Bingo! But it’s just so they can plan pap walks and interviews to keep up the illusion of a romantic relationship.

  8. minx says:

    I dunno, I like them as a couple.

  9. siri says:

    Oh, I fully understand George being afraid of mails being published where he makes appointments with his own wife, or telling her the driver will pick her up at 10 a.m. to bring her to one of her pap walks in and out of a cafe 😉 What I DO believe is the not-clicking with his pals, and I hope George considered that happening pre-marriage. Yet I somehow think he hoped that her talking about clients/work/politics will impress all of them (like it impressed HIM) enough to want to spend time with her. I don’t think this will ever happen. Like George, they feel inferior, but probably are also bored. I wouldn’t be surprised if he buys Amal a place in NY, and he goes to LA for some ‘relaxation’ time ones in a while.

  10. Tiffany says:

    Rande is George ‘ s best friend and business partner. I cannot image George just straight up ending that relationship unless something big goes down.

    • jen2 says:

      I think he would divorce Amal before leaving Rande. That has been the one constant over the years. His women change, his friends don’t.

  11. Suzanne says:

    Seeing that pic of George and Randy standing side by side with what appears to be Cindy taking their picture…for the first time ever….I got the “gay” vibe….and that’s never happened before with George, for me, anyhow. Gosh, that would be a shame…but then maybe he’s just bi-sexual…and Amal isn’t a beard. She kinda doesn’t look very attractive in that pic where he’s laughing…and I’d never thought of her before as anything but strikingly attractive. Oh well…just saying. She definitely does LOVE the cameras and is obviously looking for them every where she’s walking….riding….standing. She’s pretty damned lucky to have such a seemingly perfect life.

  12. LAK says:

    That’s a terrible photoshopped ‘bump’ on Amal Clooney.

  13. Cody says:

    The perfect life that these two are presenting, as if it was camelot, to the public, is not. I am sure there are many issues. They are two people who are use to getting their own way.

  14. boredblond says:

    So surprised the headline wasn’t’ Baby due same day as Jen’s’. So very bored with the mandatory weekly stories of this contrivance. It’s like running an infomercial non-stop..

  15. Ash says:

    What’s with all the stories about these two? Are we supposed to think they’re that interesting?
