Eligible no more: Clooney engaged to British lawyer


Published:

LONDON — Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor may be getting hitched.

A London law firm has congratulated one of its lawyers on her engagement to George Clooney.

Clooney’s spokesman, Stan Rosenfield, has declined to comment on reports the actor is to marry 36-year-old lawyer Amal Alamuddin.

But Doughty Street Chambers said Monday that its barristers and staff “offer their best wishes and congratulations to Ms. Amal Alamuddin ... and Mr. George Clooney on their engagement to be married.”

The Beirut-born Alamuddin is a member of the firm’s international law team. She has advised former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan on Syria, and represented ex-Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Clooney, 52, was married to actress Talia Balsam between 1989 and 1993.
