For many years, renowned actor George Clooney was one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors, until in 2013 he met human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, whom he married a year later. As the actor admitted in a new interview with GQ magazine, which honoured Clooney with the title of “Icon of the Year”, before meeting with his current wife, he was sure that he would never have a family.
I thought that I would never get married and I would not have children. I thought that I would work, I have wonderful friends, my life is rich, I am doing well. But I didn’t know how incomplete she really was until I met Amal. And then everything changed. And I thought, “Actually, there was so much emptiness in my life, said 59-year-old Clooney.
The actor said that marriage has greatly changed him and his lifestyle.
I had never before been in a position where someone’s life was more important to me than my own. And then two more people appeared, small and needing to be fed, he said.
In 2017, the couple had twins, Ella and Alexander. But soon after their birth, Clooney had a motorcycle accident, and then he thought he would never see them again.
My children were about a year old, and at that moment I thought for the most part that I would not see them again, – admitted George.
Clooney also described how he quarantined with 42-year-old Amal and the children. He admitted that they spent most of 2020 at home and rarely went outside. So he had to take on some of the household chores.
I clean, wash and wash the dishes every day. I feel like my mother in 1964, – the actor joked.
He also mastered other skills – hairdressing. Moreover, George cuts not only himself but also children.
I cut my own hair, cut my children’s hair and clean up after that, he admitted.
Amal Clooney celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary. As an insider told People, the couple is very happy with each other.
He values his life with her very much, the source said.
