George Clooney is definitely a romantic at heart. The actor, 59, chatted with AARP about his time in lockdown amid the COVID-19 pandemic and maturing throughout his life and career. Naturally, the conversation quickly turned to his accomplished wife, Amal Clooney, and the couple’s two children — twins Ella and Alexander, 3.
The Ocean’s Eleven star got very candid about the thoughtful way he and his wife keep their love as strong as ever — writing love letters! Even in lockdown, during the coronavirus pandemic, he would write a letter and slip it on her desk, or she’ll write a letter and leave it under the pillow.
George Clooney admitted being a big believer in letters, he and Amal Clooney write one another. As it turns out, writing classic love letters is a big part of George’s life. He has letters from Paul Newman, Walter Cronkite, Gregory Peck and has them framed and put them in the house.
George Clooney went on explaining that if it were a text, it would feel different. Maybe that’s a generational thing, and maybe it won’t be that way 20 years from now, but for him, somebody sat down and wrote it. It’s such a lovely way for Amal and George Clooney to document their love over the years.
