On Thursday, September 29, the highly accoladed actor was joined by his gorgeous wife to host the Clooney Foundation for Justice red carpet event at the New York Public Library.
During the night's festivities, the Ocean's Eleven star even found time to answer questions about why his romantic anniversary with Amal is so special.
"Since we've been married for eight years, it's really important," George responded. "We just feel lucky, and we're having a really wonderful time, and now we have two 5-year-old kids [Alexander and Ella] running around too."
Although busy with the production of the Albie Awards, the 61-year-old's wife ensured the lovebirds still had time for a one-on-one anniversary celebration.
"We went to one of our favorite New York restaurants and we had a lovely dinner," revealed Amal, 44. "Quiet dinner, we had a big event."
The power couple dressed to impress for the award show's extravagant night.
While George kept it classic in a simple black suit, Amal showed off her flawless figure in a sparkling silver and gold fringed gown.
The event — named after Justice Albie Sachs for his efforts to end apartheid in South Africa — was put together to honor individuals who risk their lives in order to defend justice for all.
"We believe that justice must be waged – it doesn’t just happen. So when journalists are locked up just for doing their job, we try to get them out of prison," the Clooneys announced in a press release prior to the event. "When young girls are denied the right to study, work, or marry when they want, we help them fight for their rights through the courts. When minorities are targeted for genocide, we help trigger trials against the perpetrators."
"The Albie Awards add a new dimension to our work at CFJ: they are a way to shine a protective light on the many courageous individuals who, at great personal risk, have devoted their lives to justice," the hosts continued.
