George Clooney Reveals Twins' Ella & Alexander's Personality Traits!

George and Amal Clooney welcomed their twins Ella and Alexander back in July, and he’s now opening up about their personalities!

“They start out with a personality right off the bat. [Alexander] is a thug already…He’s a moose! Literally, he just sits and he eats,” George told ET.

“He looks like he could bounce right now, some place in Hollywood,” pal Matt Damon joked, with George adding, “Like, checking IDs on the way into the nursery.”

“[Ella]’s very elegant, and all eyes. She looks like Amal, thank god,” he continued.

Adding about their names, George said, “We figured these kids are going to be looked at a lot and watched and [have their] every move sort of judged, and we wanted them to at least have a break with the names. So we looked for some sort of normal names. We didn’t have any great inspiration. It wasn’t Alexander the Great and Ella Fitzgerald.”

Matt Damon Explains How George Clooney Got Him to Sign on for 'Suburbicon'

Matt Damon, George Clooney, and Julianne Moore pose for pictures at a photo call for their movie Suburbicon at the 2017 Venice Film Festival on Saturday morning (September 2) in Venice, Italy.

In a new interview, Matt said that George had to pull some strings to get him to star in the film.

“I had four movies lined up in a row, starting with The Martian. I went from The Martian right into The Great Wall, which went right into Jason Bourne, which went right into Downsizing. It was two solid years of work. And I had sworn up and down to my family that I wouldn’t take [anything else],” Matt told THR.

“When George called me, I was like ‘I’d rather be waterboarded than turn you down, but I have to be with my family,’” Matt said. “Then I remember we were in London, working on Jason Bourne, and I was sitting at the dinner table with my wife when this text came in that said, ‘How about if I move it to L.A.?’ It was George who suggested it. I turned the phone to my wife and she goes, ‘OK, you’re doing it.’”

George wrote and directed Suburbicon, which stars Matt, Julianne, and Oscar Isaac.

FYI: Julianne is wearing a Louis Vuitton dress.

Matt Damon on His Longtime Friendship with George Clooney: 'He's Got A Huge Heart'

Julianne Moore is all smiles as she poses alongside her Suburbicon director George Clooney while making their way out of Hotel Excelsior during the 2017 Venice Film Festival on Friday morning (September 1) in Venice, Italy.

The 56-year-old entertainer and Julianne, also 56, were followed closely behind by Suburbicon co-star Matt Damon, who recently opened up about his longtime friendship with George.

“Sure, he’s changed. He’s evolved, but he’s the same in a lot of critical ways. In all the important ways, he’s the same; he’s got a huge heart, he’s incredibly loyal, and he’s really, really smart,” Matt told THR. “He’s changed his career, in a way. When I met him, he was just coming off ER; he was known as this massive TV star. People didn’t understand how talented he was; they just thought he was this really handsome, matinee-idol TV star.”

“Now the perception of George is as big a movie star as you can get, an A-list director, an Oscar-winning producer. He’s somebody whose opinion I really value,” Matt added. “If I’m working on a script, I’m sending it to him for notes; if I’m doing a movie I’m showing him a cut and asking for suggestions. In baseball, they would call it a five-tool athlete — just somebody who can do everything. He’s an easy guy to hate, I guess!”

FYI: Julianne is wearing a Prada dress.

George Clooney Talks About Becoming a Dad at 56

George Clooney and his wife Amal welcomed their newborns, Ella and Alexander, back in July and he’s speaking about what it’s like being a father to twins.

“I just have to clean the barf off of my tux,” the 56-year-old actor told USA Today about attending the Venice Film Festival this week. “It used to be my barf but now it’s the twins’ barf. So it all works out.”

“Suddenly, you’re responsible for other people, which is terrifying,” George continued. He then gushed about his wife, saying, “She’s like an Olympic athlete. She’s doing so beautifully.”

“Right now my job is changing diapers and walking them around a little bit, I really didn’t think at 56 that I would be the parent of twins. Don’t make plans. You always have to just enjoy the ride,” George said.
