The Hollywood heavyweight was thought of as the ultimate bachelor, which led to a lot of broken hearts when British lawyer Amal made an honest man of him in 2014. While many envy his bride, George insists it was actually him who lucked out.

“I’m a very lucky man," he gushed to Britain's Hello! magazine. "I met the woman I desperately wanted to marry and a lot of luck played into that.

"I am a great believer in the idea that luck comes and luck goes away in life - because nobody bounced from mountaintop to mountaintop, we all go through valleys too. So I have learned over the years to appreciate the times that are good and pay attention to them and celebrate them."

In keeping with George's fleeting view on luck, the 54-year-old recently told talk show host Ellen Degeneres that his union didn't get off to the best of starts. After planning a romantic proposal, the mood was nearly killed when Amal confused her ring for lost property. The 38-year-old also kept George waiting for 25 minutes before accepting his proposal.

Luckily the loved up pair could laugh about the incident, with George revealing that Ama's humour is probably her best trait.

“Amal’s fun to be with and for Amal and me, probably the number one thing in our relationship is her sense of humour," he smiled.

"It’s funny, because in her work she does such serious things and works on such serious subjects - but she is also one of the funniest people you will ever meet, so I’m lucky there.”
