Amal is Most Fascinating Person

Amal Clooney has been voted the Most Fascinating Person of 2014.

The human rights lawyer - who tied the knot with Hollywood's most eligible bachelor George Clooney this year - beat a host of big name stars to take the top spot in US TV icon Barbara Walters' poll.

Amal didn't give an interview for the annual television special, but Barbara did talk about her victory, pointing out that nabbing George was quite the achievement.

She said: "You could say hers was the wedding of the year. But let's put it into perspective: It was really one of the greatest achievements in human history."

Barbara went on: "Amazingly, Amal has been the subject of very little snark or envy. Maybe because we, like George Clooney, find it impossible to resist perfection. Or maybe because it is heartening to think that no matter how long it may take, the perfect someone is out there for everyone.

"And that for us makes her the most fascinating person of 2014."

Actress Scarlett Johansson, actor Neil Patrick Harris and singer Taylor Swift also made the list.

The top ten was rounded out by billionaire David Koch, chat show queen Oprah Winfrey, comedian Chelsea Handler, talk show host Michael Strahan, Tesla boss Elon Musk and Game Of Thrones author George RR Martin.
