Amal Clooney's bedside vigil

Amal Clooney "wouldn't leave" George Clooney's side when he had his accident.

The couple were glued to each other after the 'Monuments Men' actor was involved in an accident whilst travelling on his scooter in Sardinia, where he is filming 'Catch-22', when a car collided with the scooter.

A source told People magazine: "Amal wouldn't leave his side. It was obvious that she was concerned. They were very worried and on the telephone reassuring one another, saying how lucky George was. He could have been killed. After being with them, you realise what a truly loving couple they are."

The driver of the car called an ambulance when the accident happened and it was said that George had already been discharged from hospital soon after.

George previously shared how incredibly happy with his wife Amal and confessed he was "taken" by her the moment they met.

Speaking about his first impressions, he said: "Of course she was beautiful. But I also thought she was fascinating, and I thought she was brilliant. Her life was incredibly exciting - the clients she was taking on and the superhuman work that she was doing. I was taken with her from the moment I saw her."

"It felt like the most natural thing in the world. Before that experience, I always hoped there could be love that was overwhelming and didn't require any weighing or decision-making ... [Love is the] one thing in life that I think is the biggest determinant of happiness, and it's the thing you have the least control over."
