While promoting his new film Suburbicon at the 42nd annual Toronto International Film Festival, George Clooney opened up about family life with wife Amal Clooney and their 3-month-old twins Ella and Alexander.
“A lot of things make me nervous now with kids,” the Grammy Award-winner, 56, told Entertainment Tonight Canada. “What you want from your children is you want to make sure that they are compassionate and that they pay attention to the rest of the world.”
He added: “They are going to be born into a life that, in some ways, is going to be very hectic […] But, they’re also going to be born into a place of privilege and so they’re going to have to learn that [it’s] just by accident. And everything else is – you just have to pay attention to people.”
The actor-director also opened up to PEOPLE about his happy family life.
“I’m so excited,” he said of becoming a dad. “[I was surprised] how much I thought I had in control and how little control I actually have. I have none! I think everybody quickly realizes that.”
And it sounds like his daughter is beautiful just like mama.
“My daughter looks exactly like Amal,” he shared. “She has big beautiful eyes … It’s incredible.”
Suburbicon — a dark comedy about a white suburban town that’s rocked with racial tension when an African-American family moves in — is set to hit theaters on Oct. 27.
