Amal Alamuddin celebrates bridal shower

  • Print

Amal Alamuddin enjoyed a bridal shower on Tuesday (07.29.14).

The British human rights lawyer celebrated her impending marriage to George Clooney with an "intimate" dinner hosted by Ellen Barkin at the actress' New York home.

According to the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column, the shower was attended by both Amal and George's mothers and the 'Monuments Men' star's sister, and there were even a "few men" at the event.

Ellen met George when they worked on 'Oceans Thirteen' together and she previously claimed to be "proud" to say she had slept with the hunky actor.

She joked in 2006: "I am the only actress willing to stand here and say, 'I have f***ed George Clooney'. I'm very proud of it...

"If you don't have chemistry with George Clooney, you need to check your pulse."

The 53-year-old actor later insisted there had "never" been any romance between them, adding she was a "great friend".

The couple, who got engaged in April, are expected to marry in Italy in September.

It was recently claimed that George wants to hire 'Born to Die' hitmaker Lana Del Rey to perform at the wedding because Amal is such a big fan.

A source said recently: "Amal is a massive fan of Lana's, which has made George determined to make this happen.

"He contacted Lana's people to see if she'll perform at their wedding in Italy."
