Clooney, 53, is apparently friendly with Barack Obama and he is looking to take on a more official role, reported Daily Mirror.

"He has big ambitions and aims to get into politics imminently. He wants to do more humanitarian work and hopes to join the Democrats' 2016 election campaign," a source said.

London-based barrister Alamuddin, who represented WikiLeaks' Julian Assange, is one of the world's leading human rights specialists.

And it seems she has spurred on Gravity star George to step up his ambitions. "George is thinking of how he can get more involved. Now he has Amal by his side it will give him more credibility to run for office," the source added.

The actor had rallied for Obama at the 2012 election and was arrested outside the Sudanese Embassy after a planned protest over Darfur.
