Though George is known for starring in dozens of Hollywood productions including Ocean’s Eleven. ,”, “Up in the Air,” “Gravity” and now “Ticket to Paradise” alongside Julia Roberts, he is passionate about his roles as a husband and father. “In marriage, and now with the kids, you give up the selfishness of just taking care of yourself,” George said persons in 2020. “It’s a wonderful thing. Amal and I talk about it every day. . . . We feel so lucky.”

[To] look at the picture of the child,” he recalled. “And [the doctor] goes, ‘It’s a boy.’ Then he says: ‘And a girl.’ And I thought, ‘What?’ It was such a disaster. I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?’” Of course, George really appreciates his kids now. “Now it’s the biggest thing in the world,” he said. “I was scared then.”

On Dec. 4, as they walked the red carpet for the 45th Kennedy Center Honors, the Clooneys shared entertainment tonight something about the talents and personalities of her twins. “They speak a language that we don’t speak,” Amal said (Alexander and Ella speak French and Italian).

Previously in a 2017 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, George reflected on fatherhood and opened up about missing his bachelor lifestyle. “I certainly don’t,” he said. “It seems like forever ago. Now my house is filled with the warm sounds of babies crying. You should see when my friends show up and see me changing a diaper, the laughter that comes from them. I say, ‘I know, I know.’ I’ve given them so much shit for so many years, I deserve all of it.”
