She also addressed the larger #MeToo movement during her talk, calling it "a defining moment in the struggle for women's rights". Still, I am optimistic, ' she said.

Yes, yes, all eyes were on the bride on Friday morning for the royal wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.

The Clooneys did attend the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in May, where George reportedly poured shots of his own tequila behind the bar of the after-party.

"Hi, I'm George. I'm Amal Clooney's husband", he said onstage, as the ballroom erupted in loud cheers and a round of applause, an eyewitness tells ET.
