Parenting is hard… just ask George Clooney.
The Hollywood actor, 61, revealed that he and his wife Amal Clooney, 44, found themselves in a sticky situation after making the wrong parenting choice.
During an appearance on CBS Mornings on Wednesday, the pair gushed about their five-year-old twins after host Gayle King asked if they were “chatty.”
“We made a terrible mistake,” the actor said. “We taught them Italian.”
“But we don’t speak Italian,” he added. “So, we have armed them with language that they can use to harm us. And neither of us knows what they’re talking about.”
“I’m from Kentucky,” laughs George, revealing that his children speak both Italian and French. English is my second language.”
Amal, who is a barrister, described their son as “a big mischievous” — and it’s all thanks to his famous father.
“You taught him all these lessons and now he’s making fun of his father,” Amal told George.
The Clooneys, who married in September 2014, welcomed their twins Ella and Alexander in June 2017.
Last year, Amal revealed that George taught their children how to prank people by keeping them indoors during the pandemic.
“He’s mostly teaching pranks right now. But we will see if it develops,” Amal told Entertainment Tonight.
George quickly replied, “Well, I guess they can really pay off over time.”
It’s no secret that the Oscar winner is a professional comedian, especially when it comes to his co-stars.
George once put a marijuana leaf-shaped sticker on Brad Pitt’s car that read, “F–k Cops,” he said on “The Howard Stern Show” in December 2020, which almost immediately caught Pitt off guard.
