Barbara Walters revealed the “Most Fascinating Person of 2014” last night and it is none other than Amal Clooney. I mean, she did lock down one of the world’s most fascinating men, so she must be pretty fascinating herself.
The host compared Amal’s fame to that of Jackie O, Princess Diana and Kate Middleton, aka we’re obsessed with every single move she makes. But why? “Amal is a little different,” Barbara said referring to George’s exes. “Like Clooney, she is passionately committed to human rights causes. Like Clooney, who has a father who was a journalist, she has a mother who is a journalist. And like Clooney, she is a star in her own world.” Oh, and not to mention her killer outfits at what can only be described as the wedding of the year, plus the fact she has a designer handbag named after her. Yeah, it’s all pretty fascinating stuff.
The rest of the people profiled in this year’s TV special include: Taylor Swift, Neil Patrick Harris, Oprah Winfrey, Scarlett Johansson, Michael Strahan, Chelsea Handler, David Koch George R.R. Martin and Elon Musk.
