George Clooney: Family Man. That has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?
Charlie Rose became everyone's favorite nagging dad when he asked George if he had ever thought about having children during an interview for CBS This Morning.
In typical parental fashion, Charlie didn't believe George when his first response was "not really."
"I mean, I've thought about it, I suppose, but it hasn't been high on my list," the Oscar winner relented. "I’ve been asked it a lot lately, because I've gotten married and I am doing a movie with kids in it. You should see how different, how creative the way they ask me!"
Whether or not kids are in the future, family is very important to the Tomorrowland star.
"I'm really close with my mom," he said, after Charlie brings up the great relationship George has with his father. "I'm really close with my family… My sister I'm very close to. I have got a niece and nephew -- my nephew was just made Prom King from the high school that I went to where I was not named [Prom King]."
Hard to believe George didn’t rule his school, isn't it?
If George and wife Amal Clooney do have children, those kids will have two amazing role models. The 54-year-old actor has been instrumental in raising human rights awareness, especially with the Darfur movement of the early 2000s, and Amal, 37, is an accomplished human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case and was an adviser to Kofi Annan. She also just added visiting professor and senior fellow at Columbia Law School to her impressive resume.
George is the first to admit that Amal's work has a bit more at stake than his world of movie sets. "The things that she does have great meaning," he said. "There are consequences when what she does works and doesn't work, and they're much bigger than the kind of consequences I deal with."
We still don't know if these two will have brilliant, gorgeous babies, but one thing's for sure -- George knows he's one lucky guy!
