Imagine being a favorite star in a beautiful, happy relationship. Then picture the marriage proposal being a huge flop. This might seem unreal, but it happens!
No one is perfect, and sometimes proposals just don’t go quite as perfectly planned. It’s easy to feel envious of celebrity romances, but these cringe-worthy proposal stories are anything but enviable..... From Chrissy Teigen and John Legend to George and Amal Clooney, here are some of the most cringe-worthy celebrity proposal stories ever.
1. George & Amal Clooney
In 2014, When George Clooney wanted to propose to human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin over a quiet, home-made dinner, he had one particular song in mind: "Why Shouldn't I" by his late aunt Rosemary Clooney. But when the song was about to start playing, his then-girlfriend decided to get up and wash the dishes — something she obviously never does. After she came back out of the kitchen (after Clooney had to call her name), he asked her to take a lighter, directing her to the same box where he was hiding the ring. When she found it, she had one reaction: "It's a ring." Yep, it's a ring...
Amal eventually caught on when Clooney got down on one knee, but not after a considerable amount of time (and some songs in the playlist). Clooney told Ellen DeGeneres:
"We now know how long it actually took, and it's like 25 minutes,""And finally I literally said ‘Look, I hope the answer is yes but I need an answer because I’m 52 and I could throw out my hip pretty soon if I don’t get an answer.’"
Clearly, things worked as the couple recently welcomed twins, Ella and Alexander Clooney, and the pair continues to slay the Cannes red carpet every year.
