Amal Alamuddin Named Barbara Walters’ Most Fascinating Of 2014
Wow. After a whirlwind year, and a wedding that gave Kimye a run for their money, Amal Alamuddin — or, Clooney — has fascinated the world.
That’s why Barbara chose her as the “Most Fascinating” person of 2014. Because she somehow managed to lock down the most unattainable bachelor: George Clooney.
Barbara pointed out that Amal not only stole George’s heart, but that she did so by being well-educated, passionate about civil rights, and, of course, beautiful.
Sadly, Amal did not sit down for a one-on-one with Barbara. We wish she would have!
