Amal Clooney NBC News Interview 2016

Amal Clooney Reminds the World That She's Way More Than Just George's Wife

When we were first introduced to Amal Alamuddin, she was just "George Clooney's new girlfriend" — but it wasn't long before we realized just how much the stunning brunette had going for her and were elated to find out about her long list of professional accomplishments as a human rights attorney. These days, Mrs. Clooney has also become something of a celebrity in her own right, hitting the red carpet at high-profile Hollywood events and accompanying her husband to movie premieres and glitzy galas. Despite the newfound attention surrounding her, Amal is still fighting the good fight; the 37-year-old recently went to Washington DC to meet with lawmakers about a crisis in the Maldives, where her latest client, Mohamed Nasheed, went from being a president to a prisoner.

In an interview with NBC News (her first-ever American network TV appearance), Amal spoke about her job and whether she worries about her safety when traveling to politically turbulent and war-torn areas. She also opened up about being thrust into a different sort of spotlight after marrying George in 2014, saying, "I don't really see myself in the same way because I'm still doing the same job that I used to do before." Watch Amal's fascinating interview above now, then shop the gorgeous white dress she's wearing.
