George Clooney Reveals How He Met His Future Wife Without Even Leaving His House

Until Amal Clooney (nee Alamuddin) entered the scene, people wondered if playboy George Clooney would ever settle down again.

The romance between the actor and the human rights lawyer melted the hearts of even the most stone cold individuals, bringing the belief of soulmates a little closer to reality.

In an upcoming appearance on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, George shared how he met the love of his life.

In a clip of the episode, George shocks fans by admitting he met Amal without having to leave the house.

He said he was introduced to Amal in July 2013 when she and a mutual friend were passing his house near Lake Como, Italy on their way to Cannes.

“A mutual friend of ours said, ‘I’m stopping by and can I bring my friend?’” George said. “And I was like, ‘Of course!’”

Burt Reynolds Says Costar Sally Field Was “The One That Got Away”

When Burt Reynolds and Sally Field shared the screen in 1977’s Smokey and the Bandit, audiences fell in love. But so did the film’s stars.

In the 1970s, both Reynolds and Field were at the height of their acting careers, but were also nursing their hearts after a pair of disastrous marriages in the 1960s. Field, now a single mother of two children, felt a connection to her costar right away.

“Burt was the most important influence that came into my life other than my children at the time,” she later said about the actor, who went on to star in four more films with her.

While the pair never tied the knot, they were a Hollywood power couple for five years, and it’s clear that even decades later the relationship meant a lot to both of them.

“Burt was the most important thing that ever happened in my life,” Field remembers. “He rescued my career and literally put me to work, he literally gave me a new lease on life.”

As for Reynolds, he gushed about his relationship with Field during the tour for his autobiography But Enough About Me in 2015. “I think we would have been very happy,” he said about spending the rest of his life with Field.

“If anybody asks about that period of my life, it was a wonderful time. I was — and still am — very proud of her.”

So what came between these two lovebirds if their relationship was so strong they still cherish it 40 years later? That’s just another twist in their unique Hollywood love story.

A Couples Forbidden Marriage Became a Heartwarming Love Story 50 Years Later

True love has no time limit. It intertwined the fates of two young lovers from Los Angeles.

Janice Rude and Prentiss Willson got engaged and almost tied the knot, but then it seemed like fate had pushed them together to only drive them apart. It left them disillusioned by love until they realized fate already had a plan for these two love birds.

We’ve heard countless stories from the 20th century where fathers oppose their young daughter’s marriage, leaving her with the decision to either drift away from the love of her life or defy her father’s wishes.

Back in that time period, falling in love wasn’t that easy. There were no mobile phones or unlimited texting plans to keep you connected with your crush at any moment of the day. You’d have to ask the approval of your parents on many aspects of your life, especially when it came to love.

Both Janice and Prentiss attended Occidental College in the early 1960s. Janice studied biology and Prentiss, a year younger than Janice, studied law. The first time they both laid eyes on each other, they described it as “love at first sight.”

Little did they know that they’d have to go on a tumultuous journey to tie the knot five decades later…

4 Real WWII Love Stories That You Won’t Be Able To Stop Reading

When was the last time you received a handwritten letter in the mail? It’s likely been a long time now that we have the use of text, email and social media to keep us connected to our loved ones.

In the time of World War II, handwritten letters were one of the few ways for loved ones to communicate with soldiers fighting overseas. These untold stories by young lovers are ones that inspire the meaning of devotion and carrying on a relationship even if you don’t see each other for years.  

Get your tissues ready, because these stories will show you what true love is.

A letter postmarked May 1945 was discovered in a gap under the stairs while Melissa Fahy and her father were renovating their home.

It was written by a woman named Virginia to her husband, Rolf Christoffersen who was a sailor in the Norwegian Navy.

“Dearest Husband, I still have a few minutes on my lunch hour and I was dreaming about you so I thought I’d write to my favorite pin-up boy. Are you as lonesome for me as I am for you?” Virgina wrote.

“I love you Rolf, as I love the warm sun,” she continued. “That is what you are to my life, the sun about which everything else revolves for me.”

That’s when Melissa attempted to find the owners of the letter and finally deliver it.

Just a few hours after posting on Facebook, she tracked down the couple’s son in California.

The son read the letter to his 96-year-old father. Virginia had died six years previous.

When Thomas was deployed overseas during WWII the couple was merely dating, but remained connected through their letters that they wrote every day.

“They were merely dating, yet they wrote each other every day for 3 years, 3 months and 4 days during the war,” said their granddaughter Meghan Coomes Hagedorn.

Their most touching letter, was one Agnes wrote on New Year’s Eve in 1943.

“The opening line was, ‘I can’t believe we didn’t see each other the entire year of 1943.’ She documented her entire New Year’s Eve that night, writing, ‘I’ll write when the bells are ringing,’ and then, ‘Happy New Year, darling, the bells are ringing, it’s 12 a.m.’ It’s like six pages long, it’s so incredible. They numbered their letters and wrote in secret code so she always knew where he was. It was very romantic,” Meghan said.

Their love and devotion to each other inspired Meghan to create her own jewelry line using replicas of the thousand of letters her grandparents exchanged.

“I only used the original letter for a few pieces of jewelry, everything else is a copy,” she says.

While Thomas died in 1999 at the age of 80, and Agnes passed away in December 2016 at the age of 94, these pieces of jewelry will have their love live through their family.

“My grandmother said, ‘I never thought anybody would care about those old letters!’ ” Hagedorn recalls. “She thought it was so neat. She got to revisit that part of her life 70 years later. It was a really special thing that we got to do together.”

Meghan’s favorite letters, are those her grandmother signed with a kiss.

“She kissed all of her letters with Revlon pink and red lipstick. The color has maintained all these years. The lipstick-kissed letters are really special because it’s like her little fingerprint, it’s so unique,” she says. “And my grandfather signed his letters with, “With an ocean of love and a kiss on every wave,’ which was really romantic.”
