Barbara Walters has named Amal Clooney 2014’s most fascinating person. Certainly, the celebrated human rights attorney was very interesting before she married a movie star, but in the eyes of the public, she became infinitely more fascinating because she managed to finally get former noted bachelor George Clooney tied down.
She’s “in that stratosphere that we reserve for the Jackie Os or the Princess Dis and Kate Middletons,” said Walters, calling her wedding to Clooney “one of the greatest achievements in human history.” We’re guessing she was being tongue-in-cheek with that turn of phrase because, well, we did land on the moon in 1969. In the segment, Walters harkens back to a 1995 interview in which Clooney definitely says he would never marry again. Nineteen years later and here he is, wed to the most fascinating (and stylish!) woman in the world.
