George Clooney has explained why he chose to give his children very normal names.
The Hollywood actor, 59, shares three-year-old twins Alexander and Ella with his wife Amal, 42.
And while celebrities often give their children unique and unusual names, George says there’s a very good reason that he didn’t follow the trend.
George said his kids would have enough trouble because of his fame without having weird names too.
The Ocean’s Eleven star told AARP : “I didn’t want, like, weird-ass names for our kids. They’re already going to have enough trouble. It’s hard being the son of somebody famous and successful.”
It comes after George admitted he’s spent most of his nine months in lockdown changing nappies and washing dishes.
He told the Los Angeles Times: “I have three-year-old twins, so that’s been an adventure in a lot of washing dishes and changing diapers. My own, mostly.”
George also spoke of how lucky he is that he’s been stuck in his spacious home during the lockdown.
The star, who owns homes in England, Italy and LA, said: “I wound up living in a home with some space in it. We can walk around outside.”
He continued: “We have a great deal of gratitude for the fact that we were able to be in our homes and have some security, because there are an awful lot of people around the world that don’t.”
George also recently said that his kids are picking up British sayings from their mum.
He said on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert: “I’m desperately trying not to make them little Brits!
“It’s not a jumper – it’s a sweater. It’s not the boot – it’s the trunk.”
He said they’ve picked up so much from their mum that he even had to talk to them about the treats they were leaving out for Santa Claus.
George said: “I’ve done everything to try to change their version of speaking with English accent.
“Writing out notes to Santa, I said write note then leave them cookies and milk under the fireplace. But no it’s milk and mince pie and I was like oh no!”
