Ellen Barkin has to thank George Clooney, Amal Alamuddin for her new love

February 4, 2015 Ellen Barkin, George Clooney

The big fat Italian wedding has spread more love. George Clooney's Ocean's 13 co-star Ellen Barkin has him and Amal to thank for her engagement. The actress is all set to tie the knot with the barrister's colleague Ben Emmerson.

The pair apparently met at Clooneys' wedding in Italy and took their relationship forward from there.

“She is so happy and in love again,” a source told Us Weekly, adding that the actress and lawyer got engaged over the holidays.

“Ellen met him at George and Amal’s wedding and they totally hit it off,” the insider explained. “It happened quickly but she’s totally fallen for him and flies to see him all the time.”

Emmerson is a top shot lawyer specializing in intelligence, human rights law, public international law and international crime law.

“He is really handsome and smart and charming and swept her off her feet,” the insider said, explaining what prompted the 60-year-old actress to fall in love with the 51-year-old lawyer.

As for their celeb BFFs Clooney and Alamuddin, the insider added, "George and Amal love them together! They both love Ellen and Ben so they think this is so great and love that they made a great match happen."
