He’s played highly-respected roles in movies such as Michael Clayton, The Ides Of March, and Ocean’s Eleven. But, according to Jennifer Aniston, the best role her friend George Clooney has ever played is dad to his twins, Ella and Alexander. “It’s amazing to see him with children,” the We’re the Millers star gushed to Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, Dec. 6.
The 49-year-old opened up to the host about visiting George and his wife, Amal Clooney, while filming her new movie Murder Mystery in Lake Cuomo, Italy. “The Clooneys, so sweet,” Jen said of the couple who owns a house in the upscale Italian area.
“Is it weird to see him with children now?” Ellen asked Jen, who gushed about seeing George with his one-year-old twins, Alexander and Ella. “That’s what we talked about that anything can happen,” Jen said, noting that many didn’t think the 57-year-old would ever have kids.
Jen, who is so happy for George and Amal’s growing family, wasn’t exactly up to date on her pal’s kiddos. When asked by Ellen how old the twins were, Jen said, “I don’t know. Maybe a little over a year?” Looks like she took a good guess, as the twins are about a year-and-a-half.
Do we actually blame the Friends actress for not keeping up with George’s kids? Not exactly. Plus, Jen has been so busy filming her new Adam Sandler movie, Murder Mystery. According to IMBD, the movie takes place in the Big Apple and the story is based around an NYC cop and his wife who go on a European vacation to reinvigorate the spark in their marriage. However, the couple ends up getting framed and are on the run for the death of an elderly billionaire. Yikes!
We can imagine this movie is going to be really fun as this isn’t the first time that Jen and Adam have starred in the same movie together. The two actually first co-starred in 2011’s Just Go With It.
While there isn’t much information out on Murder Mystery quite yet, we do know it will be out on Netflix in 2019. Stay tuned!
