Celebrity Dad-Of-Twins, George Clooney Talks Pandemic Parenting In New Interview

Veteran US actor and dad-of-twins, George Clooney, in a new interview for W‘s Best Performances issue, opened up about leaning into hands-on parenting during the pandemic.Clooney and his wife, human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, welcomed twins Ella and Alexander in June 2017. The actor has previously shared that because 3-year-old Alexander has asthma, the family has been staying home amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“I’ll tell you what I’ve taken on as a hobby: two or three loads of laundry a day, dishes all f*****g day, because these kids are all slobs,”

the 59-year-old dad laughed to W writer, Lynn Hirschberg who asked about how he was spending his downtime.

“Apparently, you have to wash your children every once in a while.”

The Hollywood A-list actor added that he’s responsible for cutting Alexander’s hair — but Ella’s is off-limits. Clooney told the magazine:

“I cut [my son’s] hair, and I cut my own hair too, but I’ve always cut my own hair. My hair is like straw. I haven’t cut my daughter’s hair. I’d get in trouble if I did. My daughter looks gorgeous — her hair is very long. If I screw up my son’s hair, he’ll grow out of it. But my wife would kill me if I touched my daughter’s hair.”

Clooney uses a Flowbee, a staple of late-night infomercials, to do his cutting. He shared further:

“It’s got a little suction on it, and then it’s got these trimmers so it pulls your hair up and you cut it. It’s hooked up to its own little vacuum cleaner … It’s not scary at all.”

The Midnight Sky star recently spoke to AARP The Magazine about his efforts to give his twins a sense of normalcy.

“I didn’t want, like, weird-ass names for our kids,” he told the outlet. “They’re already going to have enough trouble. It’s hard being the son of somebody famous and successful.

He added:

“Paul Newman’s son killed himself. Gregory Peck’s son killed himself. Bing Crosby had two sons kill themselves. I have an advantage because I’m so much older that by the time my son would feel competitive, I’ll literally be gumming bread.”
