In an interview on Ellen DeGeneres Show, the former eligible bachelor revealed he knew he would marry his lawyer wife after six months of dating but she didn't really feel the same way.
"From the minute we met, we just hit it off, from the minute we met, we sort of felt like we were gonna be together," Clooney told Ellen DeGeneres
"It wasn’t like, 'Oh, maybe we should get married,' or anything. I plotted the whole thing out. I had the ring hidden behind her,
"Everything was planned out and I've cooked dinner. And she comes in and she’s just come back from London. And usually she’ll dress up, and now she’s like, 'Maybe we’ll just order in.' And I go, 'No, no, no, I've made dinner,'" he continued.
George say Amal didn't really get what he was doing until she saw the ring. He had asked her to get a lighter in the drawer. She found a sparkly diamond as she opened it.
"She’s like, 'It’s a ring.' Like, as if somebody had left it there some other time. I don’t know. And I’m doing all the moves you can do with my face," he recalled.
"And I got down on my knee and said, 'I couldn’t imagine spending the rest of my life without you.' And she kept looking at the ring, and she was looking at me, and she was like, 'Oh, my God.' And we now know, because there was a playlist, how long it actually took, and it was, like, 25 minutes."
"Finally, I literally said, 'Look, I hope the answer is yes, but I need an answer. I’m 52 and I could throw out my hip pretty soon, and she said, 'Oh, yes.' And it worked out really well," the actor continued.
The couple got engaged in April 2014 after dating for more than a year. They tied the knot at the Aman Canal Grande hotel in Venice, Italy, on September 27.
