A great moment for Amal and George Clooney. This Thursday, September 29, the couple hosted the first Albie Awards ceremony at the New York Public Library in the United States. An event in favor of their work, the Clooney Foundation for Justice, which rewards the actions of activists and defenders of justice around the world.
Named after the famous South African judge Albie Sachs, who fought to end apartheid, this evening is an opportunity for actor George Clooney to defend this cause, which he supports with his wife and lawyer Amal Clooney. “The Albie Awards add a new dimension to our work at CFJ: they are a protective way to shine a light on the many courageous people who, at great personal risk, have dedicated their lives to justice,” they said. said in an online statement.
For the famous 61-year-old actor, it’s also an honor to work with his wife who “happens to be really particularly talented” on a daily basis. Not hesitating to use irony to evoke their private life. “We collaborate on everything. We collaborated on twins!” he joked to reporters.
Among the guests present at the event, several Hollywood stars shone on the red carpet in front of the photographers. Like actresses Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep, the latter was accompanied by her daughter Grace Gummer and her fiancé Mark Ronson. Other couples have also caused a sensation in front of photographers, such as the model Cindy Crawford, still as sublime on the arm of her husband Rande Gerber.
