George Clooney fears for the safety of Amal Alamuddin as a high-profile international lawyer that's why a panic room is reportedly being installed in their house. The room would have all the necessary high-security equipment and features that will give them added protection against fire, bombs and all sorts of attacks.

US Weekly reports that George and Amal have decided that they need a panic room in their mansion in Berkshire, England. Even though the mansion is already located in a remote countryside where its privacy is secured, it is still currently renovated for the instalment of such room. The room would be proofed against fires, bombs and all types of attacks.

Such a room worthy of a sci-fi and adventure film is not being installed for fun. It is also not being installed because George has a lot of fans that would affect his safety and privacy. Instead, the room was deemed necessary because Amal is engaged in a high-profile and even dangerous work as a human rights lawyer. The source said Amal has high-profile clients involved in significantly controversial cases and therefore needed to feel secure.

This apparently shows how much George wants to protect and priortise his wife Amal’s job and career. Recently, there were reports of how marrying George ruined Amal’s career as a high-profile lawyer. According to Time reporter Charlotte Alter, marrying George and gaining "worldwide exposure” instills more harm than good on the cases that Amal handles, especially those linked to feminism.

"Even if the coverage is ostensibly focused on Turkish politics, or the Elgin marbles, or sexual violence in conflict zones, the substance get inevitably lost in the subliminal hum over what Amal's wearing, how Amal's hair looks, and the fact that Amal is married to George Clooney,” the reporter deduced. “It even happens when there's nothing to report -- the Armenian genocide case was overshadowed by Amal's non-outfit (she was wearing essentially the same thing as all the other lawyers in the room),” the reporter added. Glenn Selig of The Publicity Agency even said that Amal may turn any important case she handles into a media circus.
