Amal Clooney jokes about her and Meryl Streep both been married to George Clooney

Meryl Streep introduced Amal Clooney during the online ceremony for the CPJ International Press Freedom Awards. Amal, whose work as a human-rights attorney and activist has earned her this year's Gwen Ifill Press Freedom Award, joked about her famous husband as she thanked Meryl for the kind words. "You are an inspiration as a woman, as an artist, as a press-freedom advocate," Amal told Meryl in her virtual acceptance speech. "I know I can't ever hope to win the number of awards that you've won, but it does occur to me that we have something special in common, which is that we've both been married to my husband." Indeed, George, 59, and Meryl, 71, haven't appeared together in many projects. But they did both voice the married foxes in Fantastic Mr Fox, the Oscar-nominated 2009 stop-motion adaptation of Roald Dahl's novel. Amal isn't kidding about Meryl needing ample space in her trophy case. The Mamma Mia! star has won three Academy Awards, not to mention holding the record as the most Oscar-nominated performer ever with a whopping 21 nods.
