It was surprising when longtime bachelor George Clooney, who admitted fault for his failed first marriage, got married again. It was just as surprising when the award-winning actor and producer, who long seemed opposed to having kids, announced that he and his 38-year-old wife Amal were expecting twins.
Now a couple months after Ella and Alexander were born, Clooney has hilariously revealed that one thing in his life that hasn’t really changed now that he’s taking care of two infants. He explained it when he sat down for an interview with the Associated Press.
“I just have to clean the barf off of my tux,” he said. “It used to be my barf, but now it’s the twins’ barf. So it all works out.”
But he made it clear that so much else is different now, saying, “Suddenly, you’re responsible for other people, which is terrifying.”
For his wife, he had a huge amount of praise, saying, “She’s like an Olympic athlete. She’s doing so beautifully.”
As for Clooney’s role, he said, “Right now my job is changing diapers and walking them around a little bit. I really didn’t think at 56 that I would be the parent of twins. Don’t make plans. You always have to just enjoy the ride.”
When asked about President Trump, though, he couldn’t resist taking a shot, answering, “It becomes increasingly clear how in over his head and incapable this man is of being president of the United States. The good news is that our other institutions — meaning press, finally, and judges and senators — have proven that the country works. There is a check and balance.”
Through their foundation, the Clooneys recently granted $1 million to the Southern Poverty Law Center to help them fight hate groups following the Charlottesville riots. The Southern Poverty Law Center, though, was recently sued after it labeled a number of Christian and conservative organizations as hate groups on GuideStar, the internet’s largest charity information site.
