With all of these accomplishments under her belt, one of her colleagues had nothing but praise for the successful lawyer during an interview with the London Evening Standard. "She is a fabulously bright woman, she’s independent and has a Rolls-Royce mind."
And while her fiance has a long list of impressive former flames, Alamuddin's isn't too shabby either. (Via CBS / "Late Show")
According to several reports, she has been linked to Eric Schmidt, the director of Google, in the past. (ViaBloomberg)
Though Clooney has long preferred the actress/model types, like his most recent ex Stacy Kiebler, many say the actor really needed a woman of substance — like Alamuddin — to get him to finally commit. (ViaPeople)
And they have a lot in common too — As CNN notes, both Clooney and Alamuddin share a passion for human rights.
So if anyone could steal the elusive George Clooney's heart, it would definitely be someone who's both brilliant and beautiful. Life's just not fair.
