Why George Clooney's New Nespresso Commercial Hits Close to Home (Exclusive)

George Clooney's latest project hits close to home! 

The 57-year-old actor's third Nespresso commercial is about to drop in the U.S., and this time, he's on a "quest" to find the best coffee. Only ET has an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the new spot -- where Clooney reveals that his journey for morning coffee has become even more important since welcoming twins

"I wake up, diapers are changed -- they change my diapers -- and then I do actually make coffee for my wife and myself," the Oscar winner reveals. "We start the day off with a little Nespresso in the morning."

"Then we actually go to work, because now I have to pay for these children that I have. They gotta go to school at some point, I hear," he jokes. "I didn't."

Clooney, who welcomed twins Alexander and Ella with wife Amal in June 2017, notes that his personal life isn't the only thing that has recently changed. 

"When I was young and lively, they just put me in a suit. Things have changed," he joked of his Nespresso ads. "The fun part is, I always get to play some version of a bit of a mess along the way, and this time, I'm in search of coffee."

Nespresso's latest commercial, titled "The Quest," shows Clooney all dressed up in medieval garb, playing a knight who's just slain a dragon for his queen (played by Natalie Dormer). His next mission proves to be a little more difficult, until he comes across a good cup of Nespresso coffee.  

Watch the commercial below: 

Clooney's gig with Nespresso and the sale of his Casamigos tequila brand recently made him Forbes' highest paid actor of 2018, despite not starring in a single film this year. 

Amid all that success, however, he's still focused on his life back home, and recently introduced himself as "Amal Clooney's husband" during a speaking engagement.
