So?

That’s my response to this, and many similar headlines:

Internationally Renowned Human Rights Lawyer Marries Actor Who Played A Handyman On ‘Facts of Life’

I have as little use for unnecessary celebrity hype as anyone, but lets be fair.  George Clooney also played the title role in Michael Clayton, a movie that anyone even thinking about going to law school should be required to watch.

And actually pay attention to.

And sign a sworn statement attesting to having seen it and understanding that Michael Clayton is far closer to an accurate depiction of the legal profession than To Kill a Mockingbird.

Would the titterers prefer that Amal Alamuddin marry some scumbag, reverse-mortgage-pushing, part-time actor who happens to also actually be a lawyer?
