Hollywood heartthrob Clooney already counts Barack Obama as a friend and is a committed political activist – now he is looking to take on a more official role.

He has conquered Hollywood and  is smitten with his new fiancee  , but George Clooney now has his eye on another challenge – politics.

Getty  Love: Amal Almuddin and future President George Cloone

The  heart-throb, 53,  is planning to launch his new career after he ties the knot with Brit lawyer Amal Alamuddin, 36, in September, following an eight-month romance.

George already counts President Obama as a friend and is a committed political activist.

Now he is looking to take on a more official role, and could even run for office.  A pal said: ‘He has big ambitions and aims to get into politics imminently.

“He wants to do more humanitarian work and hopes to join the Democrats’ 2016 election campaign.’

London-based barrister Amal, who represented WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange, is one of the world’s leading human rights specialists.

And it seems she has spurred on Gravity star George to step up his ambitions.

The pal said: ‘George is thinking of how he can get more involved.

“Now he has Amal by his side it will give him more credibility to run for office.’

The actor rallied for Mr Obama at the 2012 election and was arrested outside the Sudanese Embassy after a planned protest over Darfur.

That year he ruled out running for president and said: ‘There’s a guy in office who is smarter than anybody.

“I have no interest.’
But a week is a long time in politics – and two years is  almost an eternity  .
