Barbara Walters most fascinating person of the year has been revealed.
No, it wasn’t Taylor Swift (although she finished second in the voting.) It is none other than Amal Clooney. The 36-year-old bombshell married actor George Clooney earlier this year. It has been a long running joke that it was impossible to get Clooney to the altar.
Amal Clooney resume is really impressive. She went to the University of Oxford, received a law degree at New York University, and while in New York, clerked for then-federal judge Sonia Sotomayor. When she returned to London, Amal became a respected human rights lawyer with clients such as Kofi Annan, Julian Assange and Yulia Tymoshenko. Barbara noted that she did all this “while looking gorgeous.”
When George Clooney first met her, it was a perfect match. She was drawn in by his suit. She stated “He just looked so good in that suit.”
Amal Clooney joins Nelson Mandela, Bill Clinton, Steve Jobs and Mother Teresa on the list of the most fascinating person of the year.
