‘Our son is now a big prankster. You’ve taught him all of these lessons and now he’s pranking his dad back,’ Amal added.

George added that Alexander’s favorite superhero is Batman, though he doesn’t seem too impressed that his father once played the Caped Crusader.

‘I go, “You know, I was Batman,” and he goes, “Yeah, but not anymore,” Clooney joked, referring to his portrayal in 1997’s Batman and Robin, adding, ‘If only he knew how true that was.’

Clooney was in Los Angeles earlier this month, opening the Roybal School of Film and Television Production Magnet in downtown Los Angeles, where he also joked about his twins.

When asked about how he’d feel about his own children – 5-year-old twins Alexander and Ella – pursuing a showbiz career, Clooney joked they’re already smarter than him.

‘They can do whatever they want. My guess is that they’re a little smarter than me, so, they’ll probably do something — they already speak three languages, so, I’m still working on English,’ Clooney quipped.
