Amal Alamuddin Clooney was named Sunday the most fascinating person of 2014 by prominent American TV host Barbara Walters, who likened the celebrity barrister to stars such as Jackie O, Princess Diana and Kate Middleton.Despite being a respected human rights lawyer with clients such as former Secretary General Kofi Annan and Wikileaks head Julian Assange the TV host said that Alamuddin had been given the top spot because she locked down Clooney as her husband.Alamuddin, who was not interviewed for the segment, joined a list of "most fascinating people" that includes Nelson Mandela (1994), Bill Clinton (1996), Prince William (1997), Mother Teresa (1998), Lance Armstrong (1999), Barbara Bush (2002), Camilla Parker Bowles (2005), J. K. Rowling (2007), Barack Obama and Michelle Obama (2008 and 2009), Steve Jobs (2011) and Hillary Clinton (2003 and 2013).
