Big Hollywood stars always have to be aware of their safety, and George Clooney knows that all too well, as he revealed he fears for his family.
The 58-year-old is married to Amal Clooney, who happens to be an international human rights lawyer who is bringing a case against ISIS to the French courts. That alone has made the actor quite nervous. “We have real security issues on a daily basis,” he told The Hollywood Reporter‘s Scott Feinberg on his Awards Chatter podcast.
“We don’t want our kids to be targets, so we have to pay attention,” George continued. “But we also live our lives, we don’t hide in corners.” However, even with his fears, the Oscar winner does admit that he has a “pretty good life.”
“I have a beautiful wife and two beautiful kids. … [But] there are things you miss. I miss being able to walk with our kids in Central Park,” he said, adding that “everything changes” when you have children. “You have to protect them,” George told the outlet.
The couple have been married since 2014. They have two children — twins Alexander and Emma, 1. And while George is worried about his family’s safety, his wife wants him to be safe as well — Amal has stopped her man from riding his motorcycle after he suffered through a brutal crash.
“I’m not allowed to ride motorcycles” the ER alum explained during a Catch-22 panel at the DGT Theater in New York City May 1. “I got into a really bad accident. I hit a guy at 70 miles an hour on my bike. Got launched. And so that’s, I’m off of bikes.”
The A-lister revealed that producer Grant Heslove has also been banned from ever hopping on a bike too. “Grant’s off. We screwed up and our wives were like, ‘You can never get on a bike again,’” George added.
We hope George and his family continue to stay safe!
