Lawyers on the dating scene are taking a cue from matchmakers George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin – or at least Mr and Mrs Clooney are handling their new role as matchmakers successfully judging by Ellen Barkin, 60, and her new lawyer date, Ben Emmerson.
Emmerson and Barkin met at the Clooney wedding in September.
The barrister and Queen’s counsel Ben, 51, is colleague of Amal whose specialty is human rights law, public international law and international crime law.
Barkin and George Clooney starred together in 2007 film Ocean’s Thirteen, as the weekly’s source said the actress was drawn to the attorney’s charm.
‘He is really handsome and smart and charming and swept her off her feet.’
George and 37-year-old Amal are supportive of the relationship as the insider claimed: ‘George and Amal love them together! They both love Ellen and Ben so they think this is so great and love that they made a great match happen.’
