George Clooney's wife Amal Clooney has made it clear she's not a fan of U.S. presidential hopeful Donald Trump.
In a new BBC interview, the British human rights lawyer admits she's "perplexed" by the property tycoon and former reality TV star's political success.
Trump is the red hot favourite to become the Republican Party's candidate in the race for the White House, which begins later this year (16), and Amal can't believe he's doing so well.
But she's confident he won't be able to beat Hillary Clinton, her husband's pick for the next President, if she lands the Democratic Party's candidacy - because his thoughts on immigration, women's issues and foreign policy aren't shared by the U.S. majority.

Friendship is the key to George Clooney and wife Amal’s happy marriage.
The couple wed in 2014 after a whirlwind engagement, and the pair are happier than ever as husband and wife. George reveals the secret to their solid union is their strong connection.
“Having the same interests and similar outlooks is one of the basic things that makes us very happy being together,” he smiled to Britain’s Hello! magazine. “We have a very strong connection and she’s an extraordinary woman doing great work. We’re both committed and share a common concern for causes like the refugee crisis, but what really brings us together as a couple is the fact that we’re good friends and we enjoy each other’s company. I think that having the same interests and similar outlooks is one of the basic things that makes us very happy being together.”

George Clooney's wife Amal has been receiving death threats for representing a former president of the Maldives.
The international human rights lawyer is defending Mohamed Nasheed, who was the country's first democratically-elected president in 2008. He claims he was ousted from his regime at gunpoint in 2012, and was jailed for 13 years in 2015 under anti-terror laws.
In January (16), with the help of Amal and her colleagues, he was granted permission to travel to the U.K. to undergo spinal surgery. Amal subsequently met with British Prime Minister David Cameron to call for continued pressure against the Maldivian regime, as Nasheed has been left at risk of arrest if he returns to the country.
George's 38-year-old wife is now on the receiving end of worrying death threats due to her current line of work, and the movie star has sought to step up security to protect her.

George Clooney's wife Amal's work and personal life have been disrupted by the increased fame which has come with their marriage.
The human rights lawyer wed George in September, 2014, and her husband says he has had to offer her advice on how to deal with her resulting fame, such as avoiding public places.
"It's harder for her," he tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper. "We were in New York and Amal, who lived in New York for six years and worked there, said: 'Let's walk to Central Park', and I said: 'You can't'."
"I say this with the understanding, that no one wants to hear people who have fame and everything, complain. I'm not complaining, I'm just explaining it. You can't walk out when there is 30 people follow you everywhere (sic). That is always the case. For her that is the real adjustment."

George Clooney got lucky when he wed his wife Amal, according to the movie star.
The Hollywood heavyweight was thought of as the ultimate bachelor, which led to a lot of broken hearts when British lawyer Amal made an honest man of him in 2014. While many envy his bride, George insists it was actually him who lucked out.
“I’m a very lucky man," he gushed to Britain's Hello! magazine. "I met the woman I desperately wanted to marry and a lot of luck played into that.
"I am a great believer in the idea that luck comes and luck goes away in life - because nobody bounced from mountaintop to mountaintop, we all go through valleys too. So I have learned over the years to appreciate the times that are good and pay attention to them and celebrate them."
