George Clooney's Proposal Story to Amal Will Make Your Heart Explode

George Clooney is a man in love.

The 54-year-old Tomorrowland star gushes about his wife Amal in a new interview with Charlie Rose for CBS News, revealing that his proposal was a complete surprise for the stylish 37-year-old human rights lawyer.

"When I asked her, we had never talked about it, so it was all -- there wasn't like a, 'Maybe we should get married,'" he shares. "Literally, I dropped it on her."

Turns out he also had a little help popping the question from his late aunt, legendary singer Rosemary Clooney.

"I was at my home and I queued up a playlist of some of my aunt Rosemary's songs and I asked, and she just kept saying, 'Oh my God' and 'Wow' -- completely unexpected," he recalls. "And you know, I just said, I'm 53 at the time ... 'I've been on my knee now for 28 minutes so I gotta get an answer out of this 'cause I'm gonna throw a hip out. I might not be able to stand back up.'"

As for how his marriage has changed his life, George stresses that he's never been happier.

"[I've got] a real decision maker, a much smarter decision maker," he says of Amal. "I have someone I can talk to about anything, and someone who I care more about than I've cared about anybody. So it's really nice."
