Though George Clooney is one of Hollywood's most charming (and handsome) actors, it turns out that even he didn't pull off a seamless proposal. After dating accomplished lawyer Amal Alamuddin for about six months, he decided that he wanted to end his permanent bachelor status and propose to his lovely girlfriend.

The couple hadn't explicitly talked about getting married, but he decided to go ahead and plan a romantic proposal. After cooking dinner, he put on some music, and tricked Amal into opening the box with the ring. But, to his surprise, it took her about 25 excruciating minutes to realize that he was asking her to marry him! Watch as he tells the hilarious story on "Ellen." And all you guys out there can rest easy knowing that even after a less-than-ideal proposal, Amal and George have been happily married for 18 months.
