Updated 12:30 p.m., 4/1: Welp—looks like Hello! got a few things wrong about George and Amal Clooney's marriage. Actually, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the interview never even took place. "In my experience, being misquoted is not unusual but to have an 'exclusive' interview completely fabricated is something new. And a very disturbing trend," Clooney said in a statement on Friday. So unfortunately we are left to our own devices when daydreaming about the Clooney union. Sigh.

Originally published 10:30 a.m., 4/1: Plot twist: We might live in a world in which Amal Clooney and her trophy husband stay in touch by giddily Snapchatting each other like a pair of hip 14-year-olds. How does that make you feel?

In an interview withHello!, George Clooney details the highly involved process of two famous people maintaining a long-distance relationship—without ever being apart for more than a week!—which is like a regular LDR but with more Learjets.

"We also stay in touch via social media, so we try to keep close even if we're in different parts of the world," he said. "We have a place in London now where it's easy for us to spend a lot of time together and I can work on new film projects—writing, reading scripts. Or we can go to Lake Como or spend time in Los Angeles when I need to have meetings for my acting work, or hang around with some of my friends."

Ah, Lake Como. Thanks to Ellen, we all know what happens *there.* P.S. It's @georgelovesamal4ever, isn't it?
