Actor George Clooney is back to work after welcoming twins with wife Amal.
Over the weekend, Clooney hit the Toronto International Film Festival for his latest project, "Suburbicon." Along with promoting the movie, George also chatted about his home life and helping hurricane victims.
When “Extra’s” Jerry Penacoli joked that he hadn’t seen George since his 2014 wedding with Amal, George replied, “That's true…” and added, “I have two children now... I am the father of two.”
Then Jerry commented, “And you said it would never, ever happen,” and George quipped, “Yes, well, it's happened. Can’t take it back now.”
Clooney also spoke about what is going on in our country now, while he prepared to participate in tomorrow’s "Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief" telethon. He said, “We're all in this because we are the United States of America… there's so much work that has to go on for a long period of time, and we all have to stay involved.”
He added, “I hope we raise a lot of money. The trick is not raising money, the trick is sustaining the attention.”
As for the natural disasters, George doesn’t believe they will change President Trump’s mind about climate change, sharing, “Oh I don’t think so. I don’t think he has a real opinion on it. I think he’s playing whatever the base wants.”
His movie, “Suburbicon,” starring Matt Damon and Juliane Moore as a married couple, centers on 1950s race relations. George says the story is relevant today. “Well, unfortunately, you don't have to be the amazing Kreskin to figure out these elements are going to keep reemerging in our society until we come to terms with exorcising them."
