George Clooney is opening up about how his wife, Amal Clooney, stole his heart the first night they met.

On Tuesday, Clooney was a guest on the “Drew Barrymore Show” where he shared that Amal came to his house in Lake Como, Italy, to visit with a friend. 

“The funniest thing is Bryan Lourd, my agent called me, he had just met Amal at some other thing, and she was like, ‘Yeah I am going to go to Como with a friend of mine,’” Clooney recalled.

At the time, the actor did not believe his agent.

“I was like, ‘You’re an idiot. You know that’s not going to happen,’” Clooney continued. “And then in comes Amal, and we stayed up all night talking, and I started writing her a bunch of letters.”
