George Clooney was People's Sexiest Man Alive twice....in 1997 and 2006.
Now he's an icon, as GQ has named him just that... Icon of the Year for 2020. It's the magazine's cover story, and the eight-time Oscar nominee reflects on his life, and gives some not too often heard insight into life at home with the Clooney family.
Before meeting Amal Clooney, the actor says he thought he’d “never” get married or have kids. But in 2013, when he took her on a date to Abbey Studios in London, everything changed, and he realized exactly how “un-full” his life actually was. By 2017, they had twins, a boy and a girl, Ella and Alexander.
George just LOVES his wife and kids, and that’s why his 2018 motorcycle accident in Italy was so terrifying. He landed on his “hands and knees” after colliding with a car, and says all he could think about was Amal and the twins, worried he’d never see them again.
On a lighter note, he's a well-known prankster, and probably a guy you want to hang out with. Here's how great he is to his friends: He actually gave $1-million each to his closest friends in 2013 – 14 of them – as a token of appreciation. He explains it like this: “I just thought basically if I get hit by a bus, they’re all in the will." Wow, that's what friends are for!
