Is Clooney’s fiancée Amal Alamuddin an ‘Arabian Anne Hathaway?’
Despite not being a movie star in her own right, George Clooney’s new fiancée Amal Alamuddin has already been given her celebrity doppelganger
Despite not being a movie star in her own right, George Clooney’s new fiancée Amal Alamuddin has already been given her celebrity doppelganger.
Shortly after reports surfaced the American actor got engaged to the 36-year-old Lebanese barrister, gossip publications and social media commented Alamuddin looked like actress Anne Hathaway.
Five years her junior, Hathaway shares the same almond shaped brown eyes, pronounced eyebrows and porcelain skin as Clooney’s love interest.
Fans of the 52-year-old newly engaged Clooney took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the similarities between the two beauties.
User @Shamandy said: “George Clooney is getting married to Amal Alamuddin, The Arabian version of Anne Hathaway!”
@SasoAlghamdi tweeted “they look exactly the same,” but asked his followers, “who is more beautiful?”
E! News correspondent Giuliani Rancic saw Alamuddin is a slightly different light, writing on the social media site, “George Clooney's new woman Amal Alamuddin looks like a hybrid of Mr. Bean & Anne Hathaway.”
Besides sharing a physical resemblance, that’s where similarities between the two women end.
While actress Hathaway studied women’s studies at Vassar College, Alamuddin is an Oxford and NYU law graduate and former United Nations consultant.
Fans were shocked when reports circulated on Sunday that the Gravity star had gotten engaged to his rumored girlfriend of only six months.
Clooney, 52, has had a string of younger model and actress girlfriends over the years but had shown little interest in settling down.
Since Clooney’s divorce in 1995, he has been apathetic at best at the idea of getting married again.
In an interview following the end of his first marriage, he told Barbara Walter that he wouldn’t get married again because he “wasn’t very good at it.”
As recent as 2012, Clooney told The Hollywood Reporter marriage was something he did not even think about.
