George and Amal Put the Drama Behind Them For a Romantic Date Night

Jul 18 2014 - 5:46am

George Clooney [1] and Amal Alamuddin's relationship may have been causing some bizarre headlines over the past few weeks, but the couple didn't look like they were letting George's ongoing battle with a British tabloid get to them when they went out to dinner together in Lake Como, Italy, on Thursday. The pair have been staying at George's vacation home in the region after they attended the Florence wedding of Amal's cousin [2] earlier this month. Unfortunately for George, the downtime has been met with some minor drama after the Daily Mail published a fabricated story about Amal's mother being upset that Amal was marrying outside of their supposed religion. George, who is no stranger to a public feud [3], responded to the story with an op-ed where he condemned the paper for the "dangerous" item [4] and later rejected its apology and retraction. In happier news, Amal made headlines of her own when her law school graduation photo went viral [5]. The snap showed the London-based attorney donning a wig and the traditional British barrister ensemble.
