Speaking with “Extra’s” AJ Calloway at the SeriousFun Children’s Network gala in New York, Clooney beamed, “I really love my wife. I’m having a great time and I’m very proud of her, couldn’t be more proud of the things she does.”
Clooney hit the red carpet with fellow actor and friend Danny DeVito, and explained Amal’s absence. “She’s trying to get a guy out of prison in Egypt. I think so, so she’s working, she’s got a lot of stuff to do.”
Amal Clooney may have been absent from Monday’s SeriousFun Children’s Network Gala at Avery Fisher Hall, but her husband, George Clooney, still gave her a shout-out from the stage, calling her the “smart one” in their marriage.
