Amal and George Clooney proved they are more than just Hollywood royalty! The A-list couple spent their Thursday night at a premiere but Friday afternoon discussing politics with a world leader!
The married couple glammed up up for the opening of the 66th Berlin Film Festival on Feb. 11.
While Amal wore a vintage Yves Saint Laurent dress from 1981 the night before, the next day she was all business to meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Mrs. Clooney ditched her usual high heels for Sarah Flint kitten heels and an understated outfit.
The pair and Merkel discussed the Syrian crisis as well as refugee policy and Germany's commitment to the International Rescue Committee.
A source recently told OK! magazine that Amal, 37, has been trying to distance herself from the 54-year-old to ensure she is taken seriously as a civil rights attorney.
“Deep down, she’s begun to wonder if being a celebrity is affecting her career,” the insider explained. “She’s worked her butt off, and she can’t stand people thinking of her as just ‘George Clooney’s wife.’ So she’s started to distance herself from him, and it’s causing tension.”
