    1. Not Just a Pretty Face: Amal is a lawyer (barrister in British terms) who specializes in international law, human rights, extradition and criminal law. So it looks like there's plenty for her to chat about with the longtime political activist and Hollywood hunk.

    2. Quite an Eligible Bachelorette: Make that the most eligible bachelorette in all of the U.K. In 2013, she landed on the No. 1 spot of London's Hottest Barrister list.

    3. She's Trilingual: Being bilingual is so last year. This beauty speaks fluent English, Arabic and French. So beyond her linguistic skills and the effect they have on doing her important work, it also means that she can accept offers for romantic trips to Lake Como in more languages than the average gal—le sigh.

    4. Famous Followers: Well, sort of. It turns out that Ashton Kutcher actually follows her on Twitter. Competition for Clooney? Nah, he seems perfectly smitten with his former That '70s Show costar Mila Kunis.

    5. The Assange Connection: It seems as though Amal isn't afraid of the limelight—or a little notoriety. She is currently representing WikiLeaks' founder Julian Assange in his extradition proceedings with Sweden.

    So there you have it! And if we do say so ourselves, this striking beauty and big-time lawyer appears to be a great match for Clooney! Good luck, you two!
