George Clooney, 59, talks exchanging love letters with wife Amal, 42, and how he’s been sewing his children’s clothing in lockdown
George Clooney has revealed his secret sewing abilities and romantic letter writing tradition with wife Amal Clooney as he graces the cover of AARP.
The actor, 59, discussed sewing his children’s clothing and fixing his wife’s ripped dress, after years learning how to do repairs himself as a long-time bachelor.
‘I do a lot of sewing the kids’ clothes,’ Clooney told the February/March issue of the magazine. ‘And my wife’s dress that tore a couple of times. I was a bachelor for a long time and didn’t have any money, and you have to learn how to repair things.’

‘If we were on an island and you had to pick somebody to help you survive, I would pick me. Ask all of my friends and they would pick me, too. I can make a waterspout out of this and a pitcher out of that.’
The actor has made himself useful around the house as the family hunkered down amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, and decided to stain the furniture and interiors and exteriors of his home.
‘It was getting dingy, and I had buckets of stain, and I was, like, “Well, what else am I going to do?” It made me feel better. And I put chicken wire all around the dog yard,’ he said.
The pandemic has also not stopped his passion for letter writing.

Clooney has an appreciation for letters, and has some from Walter Cronkite, Paul Newman, and Gregory Peck framed and hung up around his house.
The actor and his wife will also exchange letters every few months, a tradition that has not stopped during the health crisis.
‘Even in lockdown, I’ll write a letter and slip it on her desk, or she’ll write a letter and leave it under the pillow,’ he said of the romantic gesture.

Clooney has been married for over six years to Amal, 42, and together they share three-year-old twins Alexander and Ella.
The actor is now approaching 60 years old, but for 10 years the actor has turned down offers to appear on the cover of AARP.
He did, however, contemplate doing it as a joke as he celebrated his 50th birthday.
‘I wanted to do a funny bit, which would be Sexiest Man Still Alive. I would have done some funny picture, like with a walker,’ Clooney said.
