George Clooney reveals he has barely left his home since March because he’s worried about his asthmatic son, 3, contracting coronavirus

George Clooney revealed he has barely left his home since March because he’s worried about the impact coronavirus could have on his asthmatic son.

The Midnight Sky actor, 59, said he feels ‘lucky’ he and wife Amal, 42, – who have twins Alexander and Ella, three, have so much space on their Los Angeles estate because they have rarely left the compound this year.

Their little boy has asthma and George said it hasn’t been established if he’d suffer long-term complications if he contracted the virus.

He told Observer magazine: ‘This has been a cr**py year for everyone. Started badly and ran badly all year long, until recently… 

‘But I’m very lucky. I ended up having a successful career. I wound up living in a home with some space in it. We can walk around outside.’

Explaining they have rarely left the estate, he added: ‘Because my son has asthma. They say it’s not so bad on young people. But do we know that? We don’t know anything about the long-term of this yet.’

George said he wants to find a balance between protecting his kids and letting them make their own mistakes.

He said that the idea of them falling is not his favourite thing, but he tries to give them enough room to make their own mistakes. 

Amal, a respected human rights lawyer and activist gave birth to their twins in 2017, after marrying the actor in 2014 in Venice. 

Clooney has been busy promoting his new science fiction film The Midnight Sky, which is being distributed by Netflix.

He plays one of the few survivors on Earth following a global catastrophe, and the only person still in contact with a group of astronauts, led by Felicity Jones, who are scheduled to return to Earth.

Clooney’s character tries to warn them away from returning to the devastated planet, but its complicated by a young girl he has to take care of and Jones’s character’s pregnancy.

The character was written to be pregnant to match Jone’s real-life pregnancy. She gave birth in September.
