George Clooney married
Film star George Clooney marries in Venice

Quote:Hollywood star George Clooney has married human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin in Venice, in one of the most eagerly anticipated events of the showbusiness year.

A host of fellow stars descended on the Italian city's canals for the union between the film world's most eligible bachelor, 53, and Ms Alamuddin, 36.

The ceremony was celebrated in a hotel overlooking the famous Grand Canal.

Clooney's agent broke the news to journalists in a brief statement.

According to AP news agency, that will be the only communication on the wedding.

Clooney and his friends had sipped champagne before gliding up the Grand Canal on Saturday evening to the luxury Aman Hotel, waving to hundreds of well-wishers.

Guests include Cindy Crawford, Bill Murray, Matt Damon and the U2 singer Bono.


A police boat swerved in vain to try to keep the paparazzi away.

Ms Alamuddin was last seen publicly on Friday riding in a water taxi down the Grand Canal with Clooney's arm round her.

The couple were engaged in April.

Clooney was previously married to Talia Balsam, who he divorced in 1993.

One of the world's most recognisable actors, the American has two Oscars to his name: for best supporting actor in Syriana (2006) and for best picture as producer of Argo (2013).

Other than his film work, he has embraced human rights causes such as the Darfur crisis in Sudan.

Lebanese-born British lawyer Amal Alamuddin has defended Julian Assange of Wikileaks and former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko among others.

She met Clooney through her work.

People in her native village in Lebanon, Baakline in the Chouf district, welcomed news of her impending marriage, AP reports.

"We congratulate them and we hope that the happiness will be international," said shopkeeper Ghassan Bou Hatoum.

The couple's choice of Venice for the wedding is apt as Clooney is a frequent visitor to its film festival. He also owns a villa on Lake Como, north of Milan.

Despite the long build-up to the wedding, interest still abounded on social media at news of the knot being tied.

"George Clooney is married," wrote one tweeter. "Heterosexual men of earth release a collective sigh of relief. Everyone else mourns."

RE: George Clooney married
So what's the verdict on this guy?

If he secretly gay or a legit lothario finally settling down?

I think I recall reading reports gay escorts were spotted entering his hotel room.

The interesting part will be seeing if the pre-nup is thrown out and, if so, how many millions he pays out (all for the benefit of, and punishment for, keeping a 36 year old lawyer as a pet and providing her a life of luxury).

RE: George Clooney married
Of course I wish the Cloonster well, but I just wonder what the motivation for him is to get married to this woman.

He obviously doesn't want to have children (as far as I know), and he's already a political activist. Does he need another activist as a partner? Are they going to go on crusades together?

I don't believe so. Lebanese women, despite their politically correct posturing as righters of the world's wrongs, are far more practical and devious.

What value does this woman add to his life? What is he getting out of this marriage?

RE: George Clooney married
All that work and you settle down with some 36 year old hag? It smells a little of...

Who cares about Clooney though. We need more time to assess his moves, something is fishy about the guy but as many as noted in the past that he is a died in the cloth "humanitarian" whom has never seen a cause he hasn't liked. So his delusions on that might be a major weak spot which inhibited his selection process into locking down a broad less eggs then a store carton left in her ovaries.

The biggest top dog player around right now is Jeter. He should get his own thread as a matter of respect since he is retiring, and of course he goes out in style...

Even Warren Beatty - arguably the biggest Hollywood player ever - got hitched.

This is probably somewhat strategic for political or nonprofit ambitions.

Plenty of possible reasons.
Decline in hormones.
Desire for children.
Wanting to have someone with shared memories to live out old age with.
Political ambitions, or just the general upper class culture of wanting to present as a couple. Being married can still open doors in certain old money elite circles.

RE: George Clooney married
I admit I was disappointed with Clooney on this. He's George Clooney and can have any woman he wants period and he chooses...this?

Of course it would be beyond arrogant of me to tell what somebody else should find attractive, especially a man as high on the totem pole as George Clooney but still, I do wonder what his motivation with this was.

Maybe he does want to enter politics, but I think having a wife is less important for that now, especially in blue states where George Clooney lives and are getting increasing political power. The family values coalition is fast declining in relevance and can no longer win national elections.

Now George isn't stupid so he must know this too. So really, what could it be?

RE: George Clooney married
HL Mencken could explain why Clooney married:

Quote:The marriage of a first-rate man, when it takes place at all, commonly takes place relatively late. He may succumb in the end, but he is almost always able to postpone the disaster a good deal longer than the average poor clodpate, or normal man. If he actually marries early, it is nearly always proof that some intolerable external pressure has been applied to him, as in Shakespeare’s case, or that his mental sensitiveness approaches downright insanity, as in Shelley’s.

...

This brings us to a fact frequently noted by students of the subject: that first-rate men, when they marry at all, tend to marry noticeably inferior wives. The causes of the phenomenon, so often discussed and so seldom illuminated, should be plain by now. The first-rate man, by postponing marriage as long as possible, often approaches it in the end with his faculties crippled by senility, and is thus open to the advances of women whose attractions are wholly meretricious, e.g., empty flappers, scheming widows, and trained nurses with a highly developed professional technic of sympathy.

I think it's this.

Also, in the various pictures of her I've seen, I think she may be one of those women who looks better in person. Either way, she has a nice body.

I don't think he wants kids. In terms of political ambitions, he's even said that he has too many skeletons.

Truth is he can get married and if it doesn't work out, he'll have top quality women lined up around the block. Still does either way.

So the benefits of companionship and presenting as a couple at all the events he has to go to (entertainment industry events, charity events, etc.) are probably worth it.

I agree with this too. Her exotic ethnicity and religion and politically-correct "career" only add to that status -- a perfect liberal pin-up girl, made even more perfect, indeed, by the fact that she is attractive but not that beautiful; she can serve as a credible pretty-worldly-intellectual-career-woman rather than just another bimbo. Similar to a Huma Abedin scenario, although Abedin comes across as a grinning sycophant moron whereas Alamuddin does not in my opinion.

Although I dislike his left-wing politics, Clooney strikes me as not a bad guy -- he is more into the feel-good "humanitarian" causes, which is an important contrast with most Hollywood socialists who exhibit much harder-edged arrogance and hypocrisy.

(Obviously I am going only by the public personae of these three individuals and I have no idea what they're really like.)

Alternatively, or relatedly, could it be that Clooney is an intelligent person and got tired of the cunt carousel of gorgeous luxury-grubbing bubbleheads, and maybe she gives him a bit more? It's not beyond the realm of possibility.

There are no intelligent women. Trust me, I have banged them all in the quest to find it.

Even the 'intelligent' and 'credentialised' women are still bubbleheads because they are irrationally-ruled by their feelings, and once feelings are involved, logic goes out the window.

As for Clooney and his wife, it's interesting that he got engaged just as the scandal about director Bryan Singer broke, with rumours of a predatory culture of cultivation of young men via gay sex, and the whisper of other 'elite' players involved.

What's even more interesting is the weird body language between the couple:

[Image: george-clooney-amal-alamuddin-upcoming-w...;amp;w=698]

[Image: george-clooney-amal-alamuddin-wedding-lo...y__oPt.jpg]

This isn't the body language of two people in the early stages of love. This is your parents putting on a show for a public event, six months before their divorce. They are always two distinct and separate units in one picture - they are not posing together, but for themselves. His wife in entirely-unfascinated by this alpha man. It's kind of fascinating.

What it should look like:

Yes, I 'actually' am.

I've know very intelligent women, and, like all women, they are driven to give in to a pure emotional state, meaning logic and reason instantly crumble when feelings are involved. As such, their 'intelligence' ultimately is absolutely of no use in a relationship, and therefore of no value to a man, because they're going to react in the exact same manner when confronted with anything that frustrates the wants of their id: it's never my fault. So, passive aggression, blame, and an utter-inability to objectively critique her own behaviour or expectations in a way that puts the expectation on her - and not everyone else - to change and grow, whether they're -1 or +2 standard deviations from the mean.

I knew a woman with a Masters in Art History who fucked three brothers to get to the one she wanted, justifying the deception in her mind because - and this is a rule for all women - she thought she deserved anything she desired. Good family, highly-educated, intelligent, the emotional maturity of a blue collar white trash family.

I remember receiving a letter from an old bang - she was a post doctoral fellow - who'd shot up the corporate ladder and moved to New York for her career. She sent me a 20 page handwritten letter explaining her experiences on 9/11 and how it was, basically, all about her. The exact same solipsism would exist in a mundane 100 IQ girl, so... what use is female intelligence if women act in predictable ways despite differences in IQ?

I have seen this again and again.

Here's another one, masters, all about career, fucks alpha men all through her 20's, marries poor alpha husband, turns him beta with her nagging, frivorces him out of the resulting sexual repulsion, realises she's post 29 and the alpha's aren't knocking anymore, gets baby rabies a few years later, marries a rich American beta, gets knocked up, has the kid, says she's realised what is 'really important', suddenly becomes all about her child to the degree she has been writing a daily blog on her daughter and her achievements for 12 years now whilst never once mentioning or picturing her beta husband, just started a business for products for little girls with 'Warrior' in the company name.

Her 135 IQ was, ultimately, useless. Her trajectory was accurately-predicted again and again by writers in the manosphere.

Look at the level of prescribed thought coming out of the current crop of university graduates, and the obvious logical fallacies in their arguments repeated ad nauseum in the media. Idiotic drones like Laurie Penny and Amanda Hess are the 'supposedly' intelligent women, telling us that fat is healthy and ugly is beautiful. University-educated women are the overwhelming user base for the glorified picture book that is Buzzfeed, because they require their information parcelled out in declamatory one sentence statements punctuated by sassy gifs. As such, even their political beliefs and moral crusading thrives on slacktivist superficiality: Tumblr and Twitter are popular because they are trivial and targeted to uncomplex thought and simple communication.

The modern 'educated' woman can't moderate her eating; abuses her alcohol consumption; makes poor sexual choices in the name of sexual equality; deliberately uglifies herself to pre-aging and sloth; and swears like a sailor in her desperate attempt to equate her worth with her masculinity, then ask why men aren't attracted to intelligent women. Since the result means she's interchangeable with a prole gutter slut, then I ask again, what is the advantage of female intelligence?

So, yes, from my personal experience of dating these girls, and reading every fucktarded, solipsistic vomit that female typists spew out: intelligent women don't exist, just ones who are arrogant about believing their own intellectual superiority. I wish they did, because it has been the grand disappointment of my life to discover that, although she'll have her masters, she'll still resort to passive-aggression if you want to spent some time with your friends or constantly crave emotional drama.

A classic example of how male and female intelligence differs on the same issue. Note the great difference in the level of insight achieved.
