George Clooney revealed that he had to leave his honeymoon midway to spend time with people “dressed up like Captain Kirk and 'Star Wars' characters.” The actor stopped by the BBC's “The Graham Norton Show” to promote his new movie, “Tomorrowland,” according to Yahoo. He recalled that last year, when on his honeymoon with his new wife, Amal, he got a call to attend Comic-Con -- the annual gathering of comic-book enthusiasts.
George was asked to attend the event to promote his film. “First I had to explain that to my wife, which didn’t play well. And then, the whole idea of spending part of your honeymoon with people dressed up like Captain Kirk and 'Star Wars' characters somehow wasn't easy to explain to my new bride,” he said. He added that he attended the convention and it was fun.
Clooney, who plays inventor Frank Walker in “Tomorrowland,” said that Brad Bird, the director, sent him the script and said a part had been written for him, which he thought was great. George is busy jetting around the world promoting the sci-fi movie. But he revealed that despite their busy schedules he and Amal have a pact to never spend more than a week apart.
When Graham asked if he has a normal life with his wife, the “Monuments Men” star said their idea of a fun night was mingling with their neighbors. The couple will move to their new home in Sonning, Berkshire, England, at the end of summer. George said that near their home is a great pub. He said he has bought the pub a few bottles of his own tequila bran to keep behind the bar.
While George is busy promoting his new flick, Amal recently concluded her teaching term at Columbia Law School in New York City, where Clooney recently filmed scenes for the forthcoming film "Money Monster." She was a visiting faculty for human rights at the law school during it spring term. The human rights lawyer has resumed representing high-profile clients. She has gone to Belfast, Northern Ireland, this month for her latest case to represent the “hooded men,” who claim they were tortured by British security forces. “The Graham Norton Show” airs on BBC One at 10:35 p.m. Fridays.
