Proud of the changes I am seeing in this industry — George Clooney

Lifestyle       by Asma Malik | Published

He may be only 57 years old, but George Clooney has at least three lifetimes' worth of achievements to his name.

Former US President Barack Obama appeared by videotape to support Clooney and said: "He does the whole grey hair thing better than me".

Apparently Amal Clooney thought she might be a "spinster" at the age of 35. He's directed such films as Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Good Night, and Good Luck and The Ides of March. Friends ranging from former U.S. President Barack Obama to Julia Roberts and talk show host Jimmy Kimmel spoke of his wit, charm, generosity and work for causes including refugees in the Darfur region of Sudan and victims of the 2010 Haiti quake. He is a gentleman in every sense of the word and a way that seems so rare these days and perhaps outdated.

He also thanked everyone who took the time to toast (and roast) him throughout the evening. "On every set I visit his crews tell me he stands up for the most vulnerable", she added.

"Although George's modesty attributes much of the success we are celebrating here tonight to luck, I think it's incredible talent and character that got him here and these attributes also make him an awesome husband and father", Amal said.

George's wife Amal made a lovely and emotional speech at the ceremony, in which she talked about her love for her husband saying, "what I have found with you is the feat love that I always hoped existed".

"Five years later, none of that has changed", she continued.

"I love this industry", he said, before signing off using the title of his 2005 journalism movie. "My love, what I have found with you is the great love that I've always hoped existed, and seeing you with our children, Ella and Alexander, is the greatest joy in my life", Amal said. Congratulations on this great honor that you're receiving tonight. "Everyone who knows him will tell you he forgot his manners, learned in his childhood in Kentucky".

TNT will air The 46th AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute to George Clooney, a hour-and-a-half special, on Thursday, June 21, at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
