George Clooney finds the culture of his Lebanese wife “absolutely fascinating” and has revealed he is planning to visit Lebanon’s capital Beirut with his partner so he can meet his in-laws, the Hollywood heartthrob told the BBC on Tuesday.
When the 54-year-old actor, director an activist was asked of the influence of his wife Amal Clooney – née Alamuddin - on his views and his understanding on Middle Eastern culture, Clooney replied:
“What I have learnt from Amal is about the Lebanese culture which has been absolutely fascinating to me,” he said.
“We are going to go to Beirut and I am really excited to do that. But I did not know much about the Lebanese culture including how many family members I suddenly have in Lebanon which is a 1000 I think.”
The actor is currently promoting his new Walt Disney Co film “Tomorrowland,” where he plays a disgruntled former boy-genius inventor who joins a teenager on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space.
