They laugh a lot: George Clooney opens up about prankster twins Ella and Alexander

George Clooney was interviewed on the Today Show about his upcoming Hulu miniseries Catch-22, but all we want to hear are the details about his adorable twins.

He shares one-year-old Ella and Alexander with human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, and opened up about celebrating their second birthday next month.

It seems the twins have inherited their dad's quick wit and sense of humour- the actor confirmed that they've been gifted with "fun and smart" personalities since birth.

“They really come out with the personalities that they’re born with. My daughter will be like, ‘Sit down!’ and Alexander will sit down,” says the 57-year-old actor. 

“They’re just completely different personalities and they’re fun and smart. They already can do all their ABCs in Italian and in English, and I can’t do that- in English!” he continued.

Clooney shared that both Ella and Alexander are "good" and “happy kids” who “laugh a lot." Despite their upcoming second birthday, the doting dad insists; "They're not terrible twos."

He did elaborate on their wicked sense of humour, and the duo have already begun the pranks;

“They put peanut butter on their shoes so that it looks like poop on their shoes and stuff, and they think that’s funny,” Clooney says. The happy parents must be planning a birthday celebration for June 6, when the twins turn two.

Last June in Los Angeles, Clooney told Entertainment Tonight that his twins couldn't stay awake long enough for cake on their first birthday.

“Yesterday was their birthday. They are one year. They’re kind of on Europe time, so they were sleeping during most of the day,” he added. “So we had a cake waiting, and we’d wake them up and show it to them and then they’d go back to sleep.”

Amal and George Clooney flew to Ireland recently for Easter holidays, according to the Irish Independent, The trip was supposedly a family reunion planned by the two-time Oscar winner's parents, Nick and Nina.

“The first thing he said when he arrived was, ‘The Irish Clooneys are doing okay.’ He’s an absolute gentleman,” the actor’s cousin told the publication, which also claimed that Clooney dined with Bono at Dublin’s luxurious Coppinger Row.

The Clooneys have ancestors in Abbeyleix, an hour's drive from Kilkenny. We hope the twins spend a birthday here sometime soon, they sound adorable.
