Amal Clooney Talks About Celebrity Status for First Time

Amal Clooney is married to Hollywood A-lister, George Clooney, but she is not another celebrity housewife. In fact, she doesn’t consider herself a celebrity by any means. Amal Clooney just did her first American TV interview with NBC. The 37-year-old human rights lawyer is still practicing human rights law, the same way she has done for 15 years. When it comes to that whole A-list thing? She tells NBC, “I don’t really see myself that way because I’m doing the same job that I use to do before.” Instead of using star power to sell material or make paid appearances, Amal is hoping to use her attention to shine light on human rights violations that are currently happening in the Maldives. Ironically, many celebrities vacation there. When it comes to her new fame, Amal says she thinks she’s exercising it in an appropriate manner by continuing to do this type of work. We agree!
