When Charlie Rose asked if he ever thought about having kids, Clooney replied:

“I haven’t really. I’ve thought about it I suppose, but I haven’t really – it hasn’t been high on my list, uh, I’ve been asked a lot lately because I’ve gotten married and I’m doing a movie with kids in it. You should see how creative the way they ask me.”

In a 2015 interview with Esquire, Clooney said that he has found the love of his life in Amal Clooney, nee Alamuddin.

“At 52 I found the love of my life and I’m really happy,” Clooney told the magazine. “I enjoy the work that I’ve been lucky enough to do and I wanna keep doing it. I want to remain creative and be able to stay creative as long as they’ll let me. So I wanna do that.”

Clooney continued, “But as I’ve gotten older and as I’ve gotten more secure in my life, there are a lot of other things that I care about more, which is: the people who don’t have the luck that I have. There’s a lot of people out there who could use some luck. There’s a lot of people in this country, but there’s an awful lot of people in this world that could use some luck. And sometimes luck is just shedding the spotlight on the fact that their lives are hell.”

When Esquire asked Clooney if he was hopeful for the future, he replied, “I actually think it looked a lot bleaker in 2008, when the economy tanked. I really thought we were in real trouble.”

Amal Clooney: Human Rights Lawyer On Her Reluctant Celeb Status | TODAYAmal Clooney has been practicing law at the highest levels for the past 15 years, and in 2014, she married one of the most famous bachelors on the planet, actor George Clooney. Amal sits down with NBC’s Cynthia McFadden for TODAY in her first-ever network interview to discuss her important work, her marriage, and her…2016-01-15T17:11:27.000Z

Amal is a world-renown human rights lawyer, who has taken on cases around the world. She was also a visiting professor at Columbia Law School in 2015 and 2016, as a senior fellow at the Human Rights Institute.

In September 2016, Amal spoke for Yazidi women who have been enslaved by the Islamic State (ISIS) at the United Nations.

“The European Parliament, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, the U.S. government and the U.K. House of Commons have all recognized that there is a genocide being perpetrated by IS against the Yazidis in Iraq,” Clooney said in a statement to Women in the World. “How can it be that the most serious crimes known to humanity are being carried out before our eyes but are not being prosecuted by the International Criminal Court in The Hague?”

In an interview with the Today Show, Amal said that, despite being married to one of the most famous men in the world, she doesn’t really consider herself in the same company as celebrities who use their fame to raise awareness for causes.

“I think it’s wonderful that celebrities would choose to spend their time or energy or, you know, the spotlight that they have to raise awareness about these causes,” Amal told Today. “I don’t really see myself in the same way because I’m still doing the same job that I used to do before.”

One of the high profile cases Amal handled involved Yulia Tymoshenko, the former Ukrainian Prime Minister who claimed she was jailed for political reasons, in the European Court of Human Rights.
