At their foundation's Albie Awards, George Clooney exclaimed that

George Clooney is real proud of his wife

he "couldn't be more proud of" his wife Amal.

But why?

The first-ever Albie Awards were held on Thursday night in New York

and were hosted by the Oscar-winning actor, 61, and his wife, Amal Clooney, 44.

"We work together on everything, after all. We worked together on twins! "the actor from Ticket to Paradise commented.

The reporter said, "But you know, this is an intriguing one since Amal has freed journalists from jail in Myanmar, Azerbaijan, Egypt, and everywhere else in the world."

George said that his wife "happens to be particularly extraordinarily good" at her work with their organisation and the Albie Awards.

 "A journalist, my father, is. She's a journalist, therefore I have a strong connection to them.

Therefore, it greatly excites me when she is able to free those who have been wrongfully imprisoned

for simply performing their jobs. I am very happy for my wife and couldn't be more proud of her."
