George Clooney proudly received the 2018 AFI Lifetime Achievement Award on June 7th. The full coverage of the event released in June 21. Amal Clooney gave a special speech about her husband at the event that impressed everyone.
Amal Clooney began the speech with confidence but also opened up about her nervousness. “It’s somehow easier for me to address a court on behalf of a detainee than to speak publicly, as I’m doing for the first time tonight, about my husband.”
“Even before I knew him, I admired George’s commitment to taking up causes — like exposing corruption in Sudan — before they were visible. And to taking moral stances, like opposing the war in Iraq, when it was far from popular to do so,” she said at the Award ceremony.
She also appreciated her husband for doing good to the world. Amal praised her husband and said: “My love, what I have found with you is the great love that I always hoped existed. And seeing you with our children, Ella and Alexander, is the greatest joy in my life.”
