- Story Text: Amal Alamuddin Clooney has been named Barbara Walters' most fascinating person of 2014. The human rights lawyer topped the news personality's annual list of influential people that this year also included the likes of Scarlett Johansson and Taylor Swift.
Clooney rocketed to the international stage when she married Hollywood A-lister George Clooney in Venice in September, during a lavish ceremony and after-parties that captured the world's attention.
The Lebanese-born lawyer had maintained a high-profile law career, however. Among her many cases, she represented Ukrainian former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko at the European Court of Human Rights, and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in extradition proceedings.
