Who Is George Clooney?
George Clooney is an American actor and filmmaker, best known for his iconic role of Danny Ocean in the Ocean’s trilogy. He also won an Academy Award for co-producing critically-acclaimed film Argo.
Apart from his incredible Hollywood career, George Clooney is known for his political activism, he’s even been arrested for protesting against genocide in Sudan! While most actors are quite silent about current affairs, George has laudably taken an active role in fighting for LGBTQ+ rights and an end to armed conflict worldwide. A man after our own heart!
Where Does George Clooney Live?
George’s main residence is in Los Angeles, but he has other houses in three different countries! He has a lavish home on Lake Como, Italy, and a place in Mexico next to Cindy Crawford and Randy Gerber’s home. After he got married, he and wife Amal bought a home on an island in the River Thames. It makes sense to have several houses because the couple spends so much time travelling for work!
Is George Clooney Married?
Yes! George married Amal Alamuddin in 2014, in a lavish ceremony held in Venice with over a hundred guests. She’s a Lebanese-British lawyer, known for taking on human rights and international law cases. She was recently appointed as the special envoy on media freedom by the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and she’s handled many high-profile cases over the years.
Some of her clients include WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, Al Jazeera journalist Mohamed Fahmy, and former Philippine president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. Beauty and brains – George definitely lucked out when he married her!
Who Are George Clooney’s Children?
when he was dating Amal, it never occurred to him! “We didn’t plan on it. We never talked about it until after we were married, which is funny,” George said. “There was an assumption that we didn’t want them.” But when he got the news that Amal was pregnant, George was reportedly excited, and couldn’t wait to take care of the children!
On June 6, 2017, Amal gave birth to twins Ella and Alexander. Though Ella and Alexander have the same genes, they also have very different personalities! George claims that Ella Clooney is more like Amal, and already has an eye for fashion. “My daughter is up in my wife’s closet with purses going, ‘Mine!' So I see this is going to be a fun, fun life for me.”
Alexander Clooney, on the other hand, is more outgoing and confident than his sister. “[Alexander] is a thug already,” George said. “He’s a moose! Literally, he just sits and he eats.”
It looks like the twins are already benefiting from their parents’ globetrotting lifestyle. George boasted that they already knew their ABCs in English and Italian. No doubt they’ll be just as smart and talented as their amazing parents!
Our 5 Favourite Photos Of The Clooney Twins
George and Amal have been careful about taking the babies out in public, as they’ve both championed political causes that have made them a lot of enemies. There aren’t a lot of photos of Ella and Alexander, but we’ve picked out five which show the two out and about with their parents!
1. Winter Chic For Mum And Twins
We Love Their Matching Bears!
In December 2018, the media got a rare glimpse of Amal leaving the Four Seasons hotel with Ella and Alexander. While we loved Amal’s trendy leopard coat, we’re absolutely obsessed with the twins’ tiny matching sneakers and comfy jackets. That little white hat with the pom-pom is perfect for the cold weather!
2. A Late Stroll For Baby Alexander
His Keen Eye Spotted The Paparazzi!
Amal was seen leaving their New York apartment with Alexander, who is less than a year old in this picture. It seems like he’s not too pleased that curious cameras snapped him at that hour, but who could resist that precious face? He’s so cute, even when he’s grumpy!
3. They’re Not Even Two, And They’re Already Jetsetters!
The Twins Travel To See More Of Their Dad
George was filming the Hulu TV series Catch 22 in Sardinia. Amal and the babies arrived to live with him for the summer. This picture of George with one of the twins was taken when he greeted them at the airport. It’s sweet that George had his wife and the kids over at a beautiful private villa while he worked!
4. A Very Attentive Mother
Flying Over Means More Family Time
While Amal is an incredible lawyer, it seems she took some time off for her family. Here she is in Sardinia with one of the twins. That denim jumpsuit is a darling outfit and a smart fuss-free choice for kids on vacation!
5. Soaking Up Some Mediterranean Sun
Ella May Grow Up To Be As Stylish As Her Mum!
Sadly, the Clooneys had to cut their stay short when a car crashed into George’s scooter, and this photo was taken while they were leaving from the airport. We love the blue patterned dress Ella has on! The white bonnet is the perfect touch on her adorable outfit.
We Can’t Wait To See More Of Ella And Alexander!
We can understand why George and Amal are protective of their kids and their privacy, but hopefully we’ll see more of them as they get older. Their parents are so beautiful and sophisticated, we don’t doubt that they’ll be turning heads in Hollywood one day!
