Has your job ever endangered your kids? Well, George Clooneyis currently worried about the safety of his twins, Ella and Alexander.
The Catch-22 star is married to Amal Clooney, who is a very well-knownbarristerat Doughty Street Chambers specializing in International Law and Human Rights.
The Hollywood Reporter‘s Awards Chatter podcast, is where the actor admitted he's concerned about his children as his wife prepares to bring charges against ISIS.
ISIS … completely understandable as to why he would be worried. With a high profile like this couple, how do they hide?
He said, “Everything changes when you have two kids on how you have to protect them. My wife is taking the first case against ISIS to court, so we have plenty of issues — real, proper security issues — that we have to deal with on a fairly daily basis.”
This makes any of my daily issues seem petty, that's for sure!
He adds, “We don’t really want our kids to be targets, so we have to pay attention to that.”
And that means keeping the kids, who turn two next month, out of the public eye. George explains, “I miss some of that [anonymity]. My wife and I wanted to walk our kids in Central Park, and that’s just not possible. We tried, but we walk out the door and everybody surrounds them, and there’s a bounty on my kids’ heads for a photo. So, that’s something that we are very conscious of.”
I wonder if Amal came to George first, to talk about this or whether it was just something that she had to do.
If your partner came to you and told you that they had to do something dangerous, would you let them if you had kids?
Is it selfish or selfless?
