George Clooney was given a humanitarian award at the Celebrity Fight Night Gala in Florence, Italy last Sunday night and during his speech, he let it be known that he’s getting married in Venice in a couple of weeks and he can’t wait to be Mr. Amal Alamuddin. This is the same George Clooney who would terminate his full-time awards show escort’s contract and put her on a bus headed for The Clooney House For Wayward Hos if the m-word so much as crossed her mind. The video of George Clooney’s love speech is out and it’s been making the rounds. It’s not as ~druh-matic~ or ~thi-atrical~ as I thought it would. I figured that while George Clooney creamed about becoming a married man, a band played the instrumental version of Extreme’s “More Than Words” as dancers danced an interpretive dance about George and Amal’s love. I also figured that at the end of his speech, “George Clooney” pulled off his face and revealed that he’s actually an alien who has kidnapped the real George Clooney and this has all been a trick. That didn’t happen, yet.
Here’s the video courtesy of E!. It took me a second to realize that Smuggly McSmuggy wasn’t giving a speech in a banquet hall storage room.
That woman gushing…. Why didn’t my mom tell me she was in Venice, Italy on Sunday night?
In other Clooney news, The Guardian says that he will guest star on a Christmas episode of Downton Abbey. He’ll play a guest at a wedding. I can’t wait to see the GIFs of The Dowager Countess throwing a scorching side-eye as George Clooney jumps on a settee while screaming about how much he LOVES THAT WOMAN.
