Amal Alamuddin’s Bestie Claims She was Intimidating for Men Before her Marriage to George Clooney

October 2, 2014 George Clooney

She's got beauty, class, smarts and a whole lot going for her.

So it's understandable that men would naturally be intimidated by George Clooney's new bride, Amal Alamuddin.

Mrs. Clooney's close friend from law school Jae Kim recalled a chat they had over a year ago about why Alamuddin's love life was less than stellar before meeting the Hollywood heavyweight.

"[We] stayed up talking late into the night about relationships and whether she would ever meet her partner in life," Kim explained in a toast at the couple's wedding last weekend in Venice via People magazine.

"She had just been picked the Hottest Barrister in London, and I was concerned that this would not work in her favor, as most men found her intimidating already."

And according to Kim, even Alamuddin herself confessed that her expectations for a soul mate were exceptionally high.

"The list of things she was looking for in this man, she readily admitted, could not realistically be found in one person," the British attorney's pal explained.

"She was looking for Mr. Perfect, and he was nowhere to be found."

But as luck would have it, Alamuddin seems to have found all of the things she dreamt about in a man in Clooney.

Kim was slightly reluctant about her friend's pairing, given the actor and director's reputation for being Tinsletown's biggest bachelors, but her feelings quickly changed.

"I have to admit, that caused some motherly panic. Is she going to get hurt? He isn't exactly Mr. Commitment, I thought," she said.

"You could see in the way he held himself, treated her and others and enjoyed life that his heart was big and he loved her with all of it."

Kim also revealed that her friend quit smoking after meeting her new husband, and that "I had never seen her smile like that" before meeting Clooney.

"She has had that smile now for almost a year straight," she gushed, adding that their love "is nothing short of a fairy tale."
