During an interview with ‘Today’ to promote his new series ‘Catch-22’, the ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ actor reveals his 23-month-old kids have been doing pranks, just like him.
George Clooney‘s twins may have different personalities, but they are both inheriting his prankster trait. Sitting down with Savannah Guthrie for a “Today” interview to promote his new series “Catch-22“, the proud father of two revealed how his kids, Ella and Alexander, with wife Amal Clooney have been following his footsteps.
“They’re happy kids. They laugh a lot. They do pranks already,” the 57-year-old said of his twins, who will turn 2 years old on June 6. He went on sharing, “They put, like, peanut butter on their shoes, so that it looks like poo-poo on their shoes and stuff. They think that’s funny.”
Despite their silly pranks, George insisted his kids are “not terrible twos.” He even gushed about how they’ve shown completely distinct personalities, “They really come out with the personalities that they’re born with. My daughter will be like, ‘Sit down!’ and [Alexander] will sit down.” He added, “They’re just completely different personalities and they’re fun and smart and I mean, they already can-you know, do all their ABCs in Italian and in English and I can’t do that in English.”
The “ER” alum, who was joined by his co-stars Kyle Chandler and Christopher Abbott during the interview, also praised his human rights lawyer wife Amal. “She’s taking ISIS to court for the first time anybody’s taking ISIS to court,” he said. “She’s working on trying to get the Reuters journalists out of Myanmar.” He continued, “She’s doing all that, and she’s also an incredible mom, like, an incredible mom – and a pretty great wife too. So, I feel like I hit the jackpot.”
George’s dark comedy miniseries “Catch-22” will premiere on Hulu on May 17. In addition to starring on it, he directed two episodes of the show and serves as executive producer.
