George Clooney: ‘I’m a married man now. Everything’s different now’


Here are some assorted photos of George Clooney going solo this week, outside the Good Morning America studio in New York yesterday, at an Omega-Apollo 13 event, and outside The Late Show last night. Look at the way he walks and stands these days – poor Clooney is still having major back and neck drama, I think. It wouldn’t surprise me if he was in a great deal of pain. Poor George. Anyway, there are several Clooney stories circulating, so let’s get to it.

George Clooney and Tom Ford are no more. Clooney was supposed to produce Tom Ford’s second directorial effort, Nocturnal Animals. I loved Ford’s first film, A Single Man, and I think it’s weird that Ford is having such difficulty getting his second film off the ground. The problem between Clooney and Ford might have been “creative issues,” according to Page Six. They had a “huge falling out” and now Clooney won’t produce the film. Tom Ford is apparently in Cannes right now trying to secure other financing.

Julia Roberts approves of Amal Clooney. Julia has been telling everyone that she, Amal and George went out to dinner. When asked if Julia approves of George’s bride, she said: “Oh yes, George doesn’t need my approval, but I am quite enamored of her.”

George appeared on Good Morning America yesterday. The interview was pretty blah, especially considering how over-the-top George’s interviews have been the past few weeks. He told GMA: “That’s right, I’m a married man now. Everything’s different now. Actually it is. I was going to make a joke but it is actually.” When asked if he’s enjoying marriage, George said: “I couldn’t be happier. We’re having a really fun time. We’re working on fixing up a house in England that we’ll be spending a lot of time in just outside of London. And we’ve been sort of traveling the world. We’re on our way to Shanghai to Tokyo.” He also said he and Amal will try to see each other as often as possible but it’s difficult “because she actually has a day job. She has to like, get people out of jail.”

    So much Amal in every interview.

    • cujokay says:

      I am so sick of them both.

      Of course everything is different when you get married.

      Those of us that got married long before we were old enough to be grandparents found that out eons ago. His dumb a$$ acts like it’s some new revelation. Lord, I can’t stand him.

    • Sabrine says:

      He looks very happy lately. Time to not divulge so much in interviews though. I guess he’s just so darn happy he wants to share.

    • lisa says:

      he reminds me of that girl on seinfeld who said fiance every 5 seconds.

  2. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I’m one of the rare ones who likes this couple, but even I’m getting a little queasy. I’m sure that’s all he’s asked about, but enough already.

    • Paleokifaru says:

      I’m with you. Perhaps I’m not cynical enough (who knew?!) to think so many of the Hollywood relationships are PR but I don’t. They seem a nice match and I know I refer to my husband quite a bit as part of my life. However, I don’t talk about him nonstop in say professional conferences. I’m sure Clooney is asked and I appreciate she’s not off limits but he might want to balance it more.

      • Sofia says:

        Hi Paleokifaru!:D I belong to cynical group. We won’t agree on this one ^_^

      • Paleokifaru says:

        Hi Sofia! No worries. I still love you and your hippy dippy ways! We’ll just avoid the topic of Clooney when we build our commune.

      • Paleokifaru says:

        I’m thinking it should be in Colorado and we’ll ban deodorant. Hahaha.

      • ava7 says:

        I’ve heard the blinds and the gossip for years that he’s on the down low, but I just don’t believe it. My gay friends don’t believe it either. They say he doesn’t register on their “gaydar” so who knows. Then there are all the folks who swear he just got married because he’s planning a political run. Again, I just don’t believe it. Can’t it just be possible that he met a smart, classy lady who blew him away and he just had to seal the deal and marry her?

      • Heathering says:

        @Ava7 I think lots of people, especially women (and certainly including me), wanted to believe he’d been “blown away” in the way you describe. But as the hard sell went into high gear, the inconsistencies became more apparent.

        If he was sincerely blown away by her as a person, why the: cosmetic surgery and makeover to remodel her as more typically HW presentable; why the scrubbing of her past life traces to be replaced by a padded (and misleading) cv circulated for use by every media outlet to inflate her past credentials; why the use of his name to get her, both, legal work and media (style) note for which she is yet to be qualified… etc?

        A true “blown away” would’ve been convincing if the Amal he presented as his ‘love’ was the actual Amal – not a newly created and curated ‘ideal’ prepared for the Spring14 roll-out and being conspicuously PR pushed since.

        Couple that with her (and her family’s) very obvious media exploitation and hunger for reflected glory by Clooney name association, and the whole ‘relationship’ reeks of inauthenticity. Fewer and fewer people are buying it.

        I always think of others (not least his old ER love Julianna Marguiles) in HW/Entertainment who’ve married/partnered with high profile (in their own fields) ‘civilians’, yet have never felt the need to PR their ‘civilian’ into a ‘star’ in their own right.

        So, why is this such a desperate imperative with Clooney if all he did was fall for a woman who could’ve then quietly gone about just being that woman (his +1 at events and the odd pic taken out and about, notwithstanding)?

    • mia girl says:

      Yes admittedly, we are among the rare ones in these parts who apparently drank the Kool-Aid. LOL Plus I could never hate the couple that treated Bill Murray to such a good time in Italy.

      And yup, I watched this interview and still find him likable. He didn’t pile on about Amal. Most of the interview was about the movie and other stuff. I guess I just have to admit the fact that I like George Clooney. Plus I really liked the boots he is wearing.

    • minx says:

      I like them too.
      When he says “I’m married now” though–he was married before. It’s not like this is a completely new experience for him.

      • Paleokifaru says:

        I totally get what you’re saying but I’m also of the belief that no two marriages are the same even if there’s a person in common. None of my relationships have been the same and I know my husband’s relationship and marriage to me is drastically different than his first marriage.

      • Green Girl says:

        In fairness, that marriage was a LONG time ago, and he had years and years of living the quintessential bachelor life since then.

  3. Jules says:

    STFU now.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      You said that better than I did. Lol

    • Belle says:

      George is borderline, if not annoying to the max with his constant talk of marriage.

    • LeAnn Stinks says:

      Amen Jules. I cannot stand Amug and think George is a complete moron for choosing her. To each their own, but I don’t get this one at all.

  4. PunkyMomma says:

    I’m waiting for the “Amal completes me” quote.

  5. Maya says:

    I feel like he only got with her because she is a barrister and that gives him a lot of prestige. He’s bragging about it everytime he can. And I get that she’s an accomplished woman but she’s also so superficial ! Its a good match

    • Anne says:

      Yeah, I hate to be cynical but I have the same impression. His taste in women was pretty consistent before his recent marriage and it wasn’t in keeping with the traits of Amal’s that he now so likes to draw attention to. I think she appealed to him because he believed that her accomplishments would give him a status bump that he couldn’t achieve on his own.

      It’s nice to see a prominent man with a smart woman, but – in my opinion, Amal functions primarily as an intellectual trophy wife in this equation.

      I find I’m not terribly interested in either of them.

    • Jib says:

      Although how her day job of “getting people out of jail” can work when they are “traveling around the world” is quite confusing to me. Wait for it…she will have to “quit her job due to difficulties with the press” etc. within the year.

  6. Abbott says:

    George Clooney got married?

  7. Yawn says:

    What a bore.

  8. Kiddo says:

    I have been intermittently watching the last episodes of Letterman. I watched last night because Tom Waits was on, and he was always a mesmerizing hilarious storyteller and Letterman always asked the right questions to get him to riff on it. Unfortunately, George was also on, and he did this stupid handcuff skit and diverted attention from one of the greatest guests on the show. He annoyed me with his canned ‘cutesy faces’, and the entire bit was annoying and got old after a minute. I don’t know if this was his idea or not, but way to kill a good set, George.

    • Abbott says:

      What was the handcuff skit? Did he uncuff himself from Amal?

      • Kiddo says:

        He handcuffed himself to Letterman. So that when Waits was on he was sitting on Letterman’s desk between the two. It was a stupid skit that he didn’t want Letterman to go off the air now that he’s married and doesn’t go out so he watches TV at night.

      • mimif says:

        So basically he c-ckblocked Waits. Lame.

      • Abbott says:

        Ew. That’s a Squint Eastwood move. Clooney is not usually so tone deaf.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Both Clooney and Julia Roberts made their last appearances on Letterman about themselves.

      • Christin says:

        I was about to say that sounds like a Julia stunt, but she was there as well. Narcissists galore!

    • Kiddo says:

      @mimif, He did. AND I LOVE TOM WAITS. I don’t care if George faked his marriage, I don’t care if he writes pathetic emails to Sony. But I do care that he ruined Tom Waits’ last show on Letterman. I WILL NOT FORGIVE YOU FOR THIS GEORGE CLOONEY! I wish the fury of a thousand Bramhall hairs upon you !

      • mimif says:

        I love Tom too, just watched Down By Law for the 7483736th time the other night. Sorry that Klooney ruined it for you. The pox of a million chunky yellow resin necklaces on you, George!

      • mia girl says:


    • Lilacflowers says:

      I loved that Tom Waits just basically ignored Clooney sitting there except for when he absolutely had to acknowledge him; then just went on with his bit.

      • Kiddo says:

        George kept inserting smug face and cutesy face. Like he was the curator of what should be considered entertaining about Waits’ story.

        Yes, I am unhinged about this.


      • Lilacflowers says:

        Every reason to be unhinged over it. I’m listening to The Piano’s been Drinking while throwing imaginary darts at an imaginary picture of Clooney (with ER-era Caesar hair)

      • mimif says:

        mia girl needs to swoop in with her roller boogie vid clip and cheer everyone up.

      • mia girl says:

        Yes! Let’s all unwind to the awesome sound of
        Cher’s *Hell on Wheels*

        action starts at :35 – Let’s Go!

      • Kiddo says:

        Cher? No, no, no.

      • mimif . says:

        Yesss! Tom Waits on Roller Skates and I’m pretty sure I’d give up the ghost.

        ETA: Beige Booty Roller Boogie. Somebody please make this happen.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Was he on roller skates in The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus or did I just hallucinate that?

      • mia girl says:

        kiddo – What if we use Daft Punk instead?

        mimif – ANOTHER inspired piece of casting. Harington may need to step aside and I’ll cast Cooper as the lead along with his Beige Booty Shorts. But I’m not sure I’ll have the budget –
        I hear *The Shorts* (that’s what people in them biz call them) demand their own trailer apart from Cooper (ESCANDALO – they had a falling out on the set of American Sniper – word is *The Coop* was jealous of all the attention and fan-girling The Shorts was getting – I even heard he caught Suki and The Shorts in bed together! The Shorts punched The Coop – but yeah he was getting in their face so it was totally justified on The Shorts’ part)

        Anyway I veered off track. Tom waits can be the former roller-skating champion who has lost his mind to booze and cigarettes but still gives all the kids major pearls of skating wisdom. I’ll keep Kit as the Mopey sidekick and I will MAKE HIM TAKE HIS SHIRT OFF.

    • PunkyMomma says:

      Gotta believe that George is getting that old fart smell.

    • laura in LA says:

      Thanks for letting me know that Tom Waits was on Letterman! I’ll have to check out the YouTube clips…

    • boredblond says:

      Clooney, another guy and handcuffs–same old, yawn. Considering he historically only did this press to plug films he produced, it’s safe to assume this is all about him..hopefully the couch-jumping, conspicuous coupling tour is at an end.

  9. ickythump says:

    Yea she has to “like get people out of jail” – even when they should be left in it.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      And she has ELEVEN cases. ELEVEN. Why that is a significant number is beyond me.

      • noway says:

        What is so funny about that is 11 cases for a lawyer is a very light caseload. I guess he doesn’t know that though.

      • C. C. Cedras says:

        That’s it??? Eleven??? GAH, I used to have, on average, 125 and had to use spreadsheets to stay on track. Of course, they weren’t cases at The Hague, so I’ll spot her that, probably, her cases are complex and of longer duration. Still, eleven seems ludicrous, but they have all that world travel to work into the schedule….

    • Paloma says:


  10. bammer says:

    He’s so transparent. I can’t believe anyone is buying this.

  11. Shelly says:

    All this talk of Amal. Not much about the movie. I’m in Orlando right now. There’s ONE poster in Epcot. Nothing anywhere else. And where is the greatest human rights leader of all time? Thought she was breezing into Ireland to defend the IRA? He was going to meet her there, great “power couple”? Wait….he now says Shanghai? Not even George can keep the talking points straight.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      And on Letterman last night, he was talking about her being in Egypt.

      • KellyBee says:

        Really because Lindsay gossip has pictures of her in London today, does he not know where she’s at.Lol

  12. Whatever Gurl says:

    It’s as if he loves her for what she does, not for who she is as a person. He’s in love with this Image of Amal. If she ever gets burnt out and quits and starts her own lifestyle blog–it’s over!!

  13. Jonesy says:

    George, please shut yer big-a$$, Easter Island Head yap. We get it…you’re in luurrvv…so are millions of other couples on the planet. You’re not anything special, and neither is Amal.

  14. sage says:

    So he’s basically telling the paps that they on their way to Shanghai? I don’t get it.

    • KellyBee says:

      Well in the last week he has told the media his favorite restaurants to eat in both New York and London. So I would say that Clooney want a lot more paparazzi attention.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        Gave a full description of his favorite London pub on Letterman last night.

      • Christin says:

        Why would he reveal so much detail? Maybe to get his tab covered for the publicity? A quote from the other day even described the walking path they take to get to the pub.

  15. HoustonGrl says:

    Ugh. Some things are better kept to yourself, like the intimacy of your love for someone. I’m sorry, but that’s supposed to be sacred and not divulged for public consumption like some kind of commodity.

    • Christin says:

      When someone goes into personal proclamation overboard like this, it makes me suspect the opposite is true. I have lived long enough to see it happen repeatedly.

      Now what movie is he supposed to be pitching? He seems to be selling this personal production over all else.

      • Fa says:

        Exactly, TMI & it is weird an A-list to share that much information

      • jen2 says:

        I don’t think he even knows what the movie is about. I think gushing, on occasion about your partner is OK, but he is outdoing Cruise’s Katie schtick in constantly talking about Amal’s amazingness, and enlisting his friends to say so as well. It sounds like he is trying to convince himself and the rest of us how great she is, the Amalooney Product is what he is selling not Tomorrowland.

      • Christin says:

        A few months ago, at the risk of sounding overly dramatic, I made a comparison to Tom’s couch jumping. At the time, I was thinking he wasn’t really to that level yet, but now I think the gut feeling was probably right.

        He just refuses to stop selling his new wife and this relationship.

  16. laura in LA says:

    I’m w/you, Kaiser…I loved A Single Man, just watched it again the other night, what an exquisitely beautiful film.

    Let’s talk about Tom Ford…because Clooney? I got nothing left to say, so tired of his shtick.

    • jen2 says:

      The cynic in me thinks Clooney pulled out of the Ford project because Armani (or one of the many designers who give Mrs. Clooney free clothes ) threatened him with no more free suits if he did something for the competition.

      • Uzi says:

        Or the fact that Tom Ford is openly gay and “Mr. Happily Married Hetero” doesn’t want to be too closely associated with that…

        (I also loved “A Single Man;” Colin Firth was excellent)

  17. Persephone says:

    I agree with posters comparing him to Tom Cruise with Katie. He’s looking crazier by the day.

    I really wish he’d shut up, defending terrorists and murderous dictators may be a necessary evil to ensure justice in the law but it’s not a humanitarian job. That’s reserved for those who are helping the victims of the very types of people Amal defends. Those who are raped, enslaved, murdered, genocided….. She is always on the aggressors side. How on earth does that make anyone a ‘humanitarian’ or ‘human rights’ lawyer? Only in an Orwellian world where lies mean truth, war is peace…..

    Pity all those who have been terrorised and murdered by her clients and the future victims if she gets them off. That is nothing to brag about.

    • Sofia says:

      Was she labelled as a “humanitarian”? :O I wasn’t aware of that or even the cases/clients she has. See? It’s all about Amal and fashion, Amal is a professional, Amal doesn’t cook, Amal is so smart… And not much about what she really does.

      • emmet says:

        HI Sofia-

        Keep saying this “marriage” is for a political run. Have said in the past AAC is the attorney version of a VIP hostess.

  18. Sofia says:

    “because she actually has a day job. She has to like, get people out of jail.”

    How someone can manage a day job and still be “on” publicly so many times like she does really confuses me. But I’m a cynical about all of this so maybe I’m biased.

    • Tough Cookie says:

      “She has to like, get people out of jail.” Really? What’s LIKE that? I hate when adult talk like teenagers.

  19. bcgirl says:

    what a smug mug.
    so smug it makes me nauseous.

  20. Zombie Shortcake says:

    The Greek Gov’t said “thanks, but no thanks” re. her advice on what to do about the Elgin Marbles.

    • Guesto says:

      Unfortunately, that’s the price she has to pay for being a willing lead on this case. It’s not her failure, it’s the Greek government recognising that it must focus on its priorities, and the return of the marbles is way down that list.

      But she has willingly agreed to use her elevated profile to be the lead on this, so yes, she has to accept the personal fallout.

      I like her, I can’t stand Clooney. It’s a horrible dilemma, wishing her well but loathing everything about her awful husband.

      • noway says:

        I disagree I think Amal and the group gave bad advise, or at least a self serving advise. The Greek Cultural Administrator is correct in declining to sue the British Museum, and instead pursuing political and diplomatic channels. Aside from the money it would cost, the case could be hard to win on its merits. The length of time the marbles have been gone, the debate over whether they were legitimately sold from the Turks to Elgin, the fact that Britain did pay for them legitimately although they may have been stolen at the time, and the reality that they probably would have been destroyed if Elgin hadn’t removed them are just a few of the interesting legal battles they would have to fight.

        The biggest issue from a larger perspective is that all museums have some artifacts that at one time belonged somewhere else, and not all came to museums legitimately. Greece doesn’t want to open that can of worms on themselves too. Now I know people are going to bring up the Nazi’s, but again the difference is time and ability to prove they were stolen.

        In fairness to Amal and the other lawyers if they were tasked with finding the best court to bring the case to, then the report probably is accurate. Barristers in Britain are a bit different than the US, but lawyers in the US generally can and do negotiate deals similar to this. I think barristers only present in court cases.

    • SuePerb says:

      To be fair that was all they were asked to do; give legal advice on what they can do. It is the same if you were thinking of suing someone and you go to a lawyer to ask if it is worth it and how you could go about it legally. Then you go home and decide. They put together the legal aspect and how they can go about it, Greece decided not to proceed. It is not like they did anything wrong, they did what they were asked.

      • noway says:

        This may be a difference between US lawyers and Britain, but most likely a US International law firm would suggest they negotiate a deal with the British Museum, which sounds like what Greece wants. Granted the US law firm would charge for mediating the negotiations. There are many lawyers in the US who don’t ever go into a court room only negotiate. That’s why to me it seems so skewed, because it seems obvious that negotiation is the best tactic with the most likely chance of at a least some limited success.

      • SuePerb says:

        What? This route has been going on for donkey’s years. The British museum has offered in the past to loan them to Greece. Greece has always rejected the offer because it would be construed as the British are the legal owners. Greece does not want them on loan, they want them returned permanently. This is about ownership and legality, neither side is even considering shared ownership. Greece sought the advice of how they can force Britain to give up their perceived ownership and what their chances were. They were told slim but maybe doable if they act now because of the government that is in power now and the current feelings from the British public. It was detailed the best courts to approach and how they could win.

        What was wrong with the advice? Britain formally declined further negotiations on this matter to the UNESCO. US lawyers wouldn’t have been able to offer any different advice at all.

      • noway says:

        My point was not that a US law firm would succeed, but a US International law firm would definitely try to aid in negotiations and charge, whereas British Barristers, as their system is different, from what I understand, they mainly argue in court. A court case would be complicated. The ownership is easily disputed on both sides. This makes the case very difficult, which in addition to Greece’s financial problems could make this worse. I realize presently it seems like negotiation is not possible, but if they fought in court and lost it would be worse.

        My initial comment. which I stick by is the advice to sue is poor. Unless the instructions by Greece on this report was to find the best court to file a suit with the best odds of a successful outcome, this report is not the best legal advice. I still feel political and diplomatic negotiations are their best and most economical option for Greece. Not to mention the precedent this could set in International Court on ownership of museum artifacts, and yes I am well aware international law does not use precedent to the same faction as the US law system.

      • SuePerb says:

        You’re not getting it, maybe what I wrote wasn’t clear enough. For over a hundred years at different points in time negotiations have been tried. It is not like there hasn’t been attempts to negotiate. Even in the past year the UNESCO tried to get negotiations going again, but Britain formally (as in government letters) refused the last attempt, they said that the Greeks are not offering to negotiate just to lay claim and that is not on offer and the subject is closed. They will (as they have always said) loan them to Greece. Greece rejected that and want the title to be returned. This is about rights to a ownership not suing someone. Nobody is even thinking about suing anyone

        The only way now would be the legal avenue, so Greece sought advice, it was given and they decided that now was not the best time both financially nor the probability they could lose. There was no bad advice given, just normal legal advice of the options avaliable.

        Precedents have already been set in relation to museum artifacts which is why Greece chose Geoffrey Robertson QC and Norman Palmer QC in the first place.

  21. Annaliese says:

    Oh, for heaven’s sake. He didn’t bring up the subject of marriage, Stephanopoulous did. Up until then he was talking about, promoting, his new movie. What is all this hating about him talking about his marriage? Interviewers ask him about it because they think his fans are interested. If you’re not a fan, and not interested, why on earth are you wasting your time looking at the clip and commenting about it?

    • boredblond says:

      Sorry, but for celebrity interviews, the pr people tell them what the celeb wants to talk about..all questions scripted by his people…especially in a case where it’s Disney owned network and a Disney film. In print interviews, pr folks usually get final edit.

    • siri says:

      So we are only supposed to comment on people we like? Or where we agree with the person? It’s a gossip site, you know…Aside from that, people don’t like to be fooled, and there must be reasons why so many believe George is exactly doing that. Plus, boredblond is right, all the questions are agreed upon beforehand, so if he wouldn’t want to talk about his marriage for the 100th time, there wouldn’t be any question about it.

  22. Bread and Circuses says:

    To be fair, if I were married to Amal, I’d gush like a lovestruck fool too. She’s kind of amazing.

    • BearcatLawyer says:

      George, Amal, and their PR machine want you to THINK she is amazing. The reality is that she is not really a brilliant, high-powered human rights lawyer. She is certainly bright and well-connected, but she is not nearly as professionally successful or talented as they have made her out to be. She is, however, pretty amazing at pap walks. I will give her that.

  23. pk says:

    I’ve always had a crush on George but he’s starting to look like my dad.

  24. Jag says:

    Interesting. I thought they had a “rule” that they couldn’t go more than a week without seeing one another. And now he’s saying they’ll try to make time. hmmmm

    Was he famous at all when he was previously married? Did he talk about his wife in such terms in every. frigging, interview?

  25. TOPgirl says:

    I can’t get over Icycle Brows! I think Amal is soo full of life and beauty and she’s sucking all the life out of him. He looks like he’s losing his soul these days. Sort of like Angelina and Brad. LOL!

  26. Dinah says:

    “I never knew what love was until you” – George to Amal
    It’s typical pre-death syndrome. George will never be 18 again and he’s three quarters home now.
    The hardest moment of his life will be the moment he loses this world that’s been so good to him and far from good to so many others.
    In the end, life’s losers win the war after having lost most of the battles.
    With or without a god, karma is killer.

    • thelazylioness says:

      Thank you for this comment. Similar sentiments are in the Bible. And it gives me some comfort because my life’s been hard. People say you are not of this world because materialistic things don’t mean much to me. I just want to be happy. And I really hope there’s an afterlife for those of us who really struggled here. XOXO

    Here are some FACTS.

    1) She travelled to LONDON (LGW). She did not go to;
    Or any other place. She got as far as the Hair Salon and a Laser Beauty Clinic.
    She did NOT do one iota of work.
    She stayed at her Mothers home. NOT her new house which is still under renovation.
    Amal and her Mother enjoyed laughing AT George ALL day and ALL night. They made dinner reservations for tonight, Saturday, you will be treated to Pap pictures again on Sunday morning with your cornflakes.
    He married a not so smart wife, but a very smart Mother-in-Law.

      Wherever you got your facts from (yes, I’m curious about the laughing all day and night, and the reservation;-)), that’s exactly what I feel happened. Baria basically sold her daughter. For fame, the lifestyle, and because she wouldn’t make the ‘greatest lawyer ever’- ever. But doesn’t it look like Baria isn’t that smart with her PR strategy? Most people don’t buy the love story, or Amal being the second coming as a wife, or lawyer. And what does that make George? Oh, I’m not gonna start;-)

    Aww, it’s sweet how he’s so giddy over the brand-new experience of marr- oh, wait, right. (eye-roll)

    He’s really becoming the ultimate “smug married” as Bridget Jones would put it, to the point where it sounds kind of breathless and desperate: “I’m married! MARRIED! Did everyone hear that in the back? It’s very important that you understand that this a Brand New and Totally Different, Changed-Man Phase of My Life! Colors are brighter! Flowers smell better! She makes me want to be a better man! I just gave $100 to a three-legged cat!”

    Frankly, distancing himself from his “old” life this way is classless and disrespectful to his past relationships, all of whom were apparently good enough to be with when it suited him. If he has to carry on that way – or even if he just THINKS he needs to – in order to make his new princess feel special, it’s sad.

    Catching up on my gossip. Have vertigo from hopping from Spice Girl wedding article to this one. George and Amal can be a little annoying, but at least neither of them left a not-good-enough14-year relationship with an infant. Either it’s a complety different set of commenters between articles or peoples’ moral compasses and snarkometers are on the fritz.
