Clooney ‘protecting’ romance

George Clooney

George Clooney is apparently eager to protect his fledgling romance with a barrister.

The Hollywood hunk has been linked to several women since his split from Stacy Keibler, including Katie Holmes, Croatian model Monika Jakisic and London barrister Amal Alamuddin. George and Amal were spotted enjoying dinner in the UK city last week and it has been claimed the pair bonded over their passion for politics.

“George has been in touch with her a lot and they’ve said they will meet up soon,” a source told British magazine Grazia. “George is still getting to know her and wants to protect Amal. It’s early days and he doesn’t want her to be landed with all the pressure that comes with being his ‘girlfriend’.”

George has denied he is in a relationship with Amal, joking he should “be an athlete” with all the women he is said to be dating. However, insiders claim the 52-year-old star does have feelings for Amal. Those close to the actor are hoping the pair will spend more time together and give the relationship a chance to blossom.

“George and Amal are really on the same level. Everyone is waiting to see if they’ll take it further,” a source revealed. “His friends would love to see him with someone who shares his passion for politics.”

Amal is an international law and human rights lawyer and George has been enjoying having discussions with her about Darfur.

It seems she has beauty to match brains too, as she was recently voted London’s hottest barrister.
