True love can come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Cross-cultural couples have become more common as racial barriers have broken down and age-old taboos left to the history books. Hollywood, to its credit, has played its part in leading the way in this regard. So, here we celebrate celebrity interracial couples who embody the true meaning of love being (color) blind.
George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin
It took human rights lawyer, Lebanese-British Amal Alamuddin, for Academy Award-winning actor, George Clooney, to call time on his bachelorhood. After several high profile relationships, Clooney wed Alamuddin in September 2014. The couple first met at a 2013 charity event, where the elusive Clooney was immediately smitten.
Clooney popped the question, after just months of dating, with the couple marrying just a few months later the very same year. In June 2017, the couple welcomed twins named Ella and Alexander. Prior to the birth of their children, Clooney said, “It’s going to be an adventure … We’ve sort of embraced it all … with arms wide open.”
