THE American political salt-n-pepper actor has apparently been wooing slain Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto’s niece, Fatima Bhutto, a 26-year-old poet and journalist, reported American magazine The National Enquirer on Tuesday.
“He’s still out there with his usual assortment of Hollywood eye-candy hanging from his arm,” a film industry source told The Enquirer. “But George insists those days could be coming to an end if Fatima wants to take their relationship to the next level and spend some serious time with him in the US.” “Tricky long distance, Pakistan-to-US dating logistics aside, we think the two would make a nice couple. I mean, just look at her CV. She’s a far cry from Clooney’s last girlfriend, the be-breasted cocktail waitress Fear Factor contestant, Sara Larson.
Fatima Bhutto has a BA in Middle Eastern studies from Barnard and a Masters in South Asian Studies from University of London. So she’s educated.”
According to The National Enquirer, Clooney is also said to be uncharacteristically serious about her, especially considering how smart and independent she is. Although Clooney has been able to keep the relationship under wraps, in private he is gushing to pals about the raven-haired Fatima, say insiders.
George and Fatima met at an international conference last year. George quickly fell for her, revealed the source.
“Fatima was educated at Columbia University… and knew of his heartthrob rep, but she didn’t take his advances seriously because she thought their age difference - not to mention where they each lived - would make a serious relationship impractical. But George has courted her by phone and e-mail and arranged to meet her abroad when their schedules allowed it. Now he wants her to spend time with him in Hollywood.”
