Midnight Sky actor George Clooney, 59, also joked he had been trying to “dumb down” his three-year-old twins as they were taking after his “genius” wife Amal Clooney, 42, a Human rights lawyer. The pair tied the knot in 2014 and welcomed their twins Ella and Alexander three years later.

He said: They are clearly my wife’s children – they are three and speak fluent Italian and they are way ahead.

“My wife is a genius and they are brilliant kids, and it is my job to dumb them down and put a bit of actor into them, so I teach them horrible things.

“When I hear the shriek from my wife, I know I have succeeded.

“I taught them to put Nutella in their nappies and to go upstairs, take off the nappy and eat it!”

George went on to say he had been missing his parents, family and friends during lockdown, but said spending time with his wife and twins had been “very special”.

“I do get to put them to bed at night and wake them up every morning. There is something very special about that,” he added on The Graham Norton Show.

The actor had previously said allowing his twins to learn Italian was a “dumb mistake” as neither he or wife Amal speak the language.

The married couple tied the knot in Venice and regularly visit their home in Lake Como.

Despite this, he revealed on the Jimmy Kimmel show: “I don’t speak Italian.

“My wife doesn’t speak Italian. So it’s really terrible, we’ve armed them with a special language.”

George went on to discuss the changes he had made to their family home after having twins.

“We even had to change things in the house. Like I had to turn my office, which I loved into a nursery.

“It’s a terrible thing,” he joked.

In a further in-depth interview, the actor admitted he didn’t realise how unfulfilled his life was before marriage and children.

He said in GQ Magazine: “For 36 years, I was the guy that if some kid popped up and started crying, I’d be like, ‘Are you f***ing kidding me?’

“And now suddenly I’m the guy with the kid, you know?”

“I was like, ‘I’m never getting married. I’m not gonna have kids I’m gonna work, I’ve got great friends, my life is full, I’m doing well.

“And I didn’t know how un-full it was until I met Amal. And then everything changed.”

George is currently promoting his latest movie The Midnight Sky.

The actor stars in and directed the American science fiction film, based on the novel Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton.

The Graham Norton Show returns tonight at 10.45pm on BBC One.
