George Clooney says his son has asthma

This is from the GQ interview [[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]]

He's in the living room of his house, the same three-bedroom house, situated on five acres, that he bought for $600,000 in 1995. Though I live just a few miles away, Clooney is keeping his distance. His son, Alexander, has asthma; Clooney is 59. There are enough risk factors on and off the property that Clooney hasn't left it much this year.

No mention of Ella.

But that statement explains such a lot...they must be desperate to protect him and the weather

has to help....

I'll bet. So much better in California than here in the UK (assuming the LA reputation for smog is better now than back in the 80s).

You know, I still can't believe that we're talking about George and his love for his own children. After all these years of him being the poster child for the single man, it's just impossible for me to get my head round him being a family man!

And here, in fact, comes one of them now, bombing into the frame. Clooney's whole face lights up. “Oh, hey! Here's Alexander. Here's my son. Come here! Say hi! Say hello! Say ‘Hi, Zach!’”

Alexander has a mop of brown hair and chaotic teeth and looks like the son of George and Amal Clooney.

Clooney gathers his son in his lap, and for a while he forgets about me and just talks to his boy.

“You've got chocolate on your face. Do you know that? What is that? Did you have chocolate?”
“Yeah.”
“Yeah? You did? Hey, Alexander? Let's see. How old are you now—15?”
“No.”
“How old are ya?”
“Three. Because I got my birthday.”
“Yeah, you had your birthday! And do you speak fluent Italian?”
“Yeah!”
“Say something in Italian. Let's hear you say something in Italian. Say ‘It's very hot today’ in Italian.”
“Molto caldo,” Alexander says.
“Molto caldo!” Clooney repeats proudly.

Yes, it's amazing to hear proud daddy George. It is also good to hear from  Grant that he has never seen George happier.

It’s an odd description annemarie.  Maybe Alexander’s teeth are crowding.  Maybe he has a small mouth.  Don’t know.  Would have loved to have seen video of Alexander’s zoom bomb.

Thoroughly enjoyed the article.  George always has a lot to say.  Also the video of George discussing some of his more memorable movies was great!

Yes, Donna,

that's what I think too. We hadn't heard of him - or hardly ever saw him this year that I was worried he might announce his retirement at one point. So I was really glad being abld to read and watch all this  Smile

What happened to his policy of never getting married again?

People change as they grow. I don't think what he said was a particularly great invasion of his privacy.

Mm, I wondered that - but when Alexander wandered in during the middle of the zoom, I

suspect George's guard went down. and he was his first priority. Who knows? Maybe he just had some treatment or had a

bad night.......

When he does other interviews no doubt he will brief the journos that there'll be no further discussion of it before they start............

George mentioned that Alexander has asthma to the journalist to explain some of the reasons for why he was strictly self-isolating. He may not have expected to see that in print.

I'm just thinking that the writer is someone George knows and is comfortable with, so he let his guard down a little. I don't think he said anything too revealing.

TBH, I would think Sonning would be safer for Alexander than LA right now. The fires are affecting the air quality all over the state.

If George was bothered about Alexander being there he wouldn't have let him . I think this is their home and
like a lot of parent's the kids interrupt their meetings. It's not like we heard any thing personal that we don't already know
other than Alexander has Asthma.  I think the kids and Amal are his life now and it is great to hear him speak of them
and to get to hear a little about him as a proud dad.

I hope we continue to get little bits about the family life we all know George loves to tell stories.

I take back about George mentioning it by accident.  I completely missed that he also mentioned it in his interview with Deadline:

According to an interview with Deadline, George Clooney talked about the circumstances that led to him leaving the cast of “No Sudden Move,” and sadly, it has nothing to do with the project itself or scheduling issues. Instead, it’s all about Clooney worrying about the health of his son and the idea of working on a film set during a pandemic.

I’ve got a son with asthma,” said Clooney. “It’s not like I can just go taking any chances. I had to drop out of the Soderberg film [‘No Sudden Move’] that he was shooting because of that, which was a bummer because it’s a great part. It looks like I would have gotten to work with Don Cheadle and everybody again. It really looked like fun.”

According to Indiewire they're filming in Detroit. I'm not sure why that would influence him taking the part. It isn't as if the kids would be there with him and I don't think the risk of filming there would be greater than anywhere else - unless he's hunkering down at home and not filming anything until after the pandemic.

IMDb says Matt Damon is in the film, too. The cast looks amazing. I wonder who is playing the part George was supposed to play.

Mm, it could be that George didn't want to be away from them that long - and then probably

have to self-isolate before he could go home....

That was my first thought, but it surprises me that he would turn down a project that he really seemed to want to do. He wouldn't have to be away from home for too long, and I'm sure Soderberg made/is making the shoot as safe as possible.

I'm not sure how George being home helps with Alexander's asthma except that it may ease George's peace of mind.

Definitely a change of priorities for George. Touching, isn't it?

Yes it is, I can understand him not wanting to be away from the family for so long. Also , he can't just come home and visit no matter how careful he is , there have been a couple of movies shut down because someone has tested positive for covid. So I understand him not risking it for a film. His health and the health of his family should come first.

And, yes, Lizzy. Sonning would definitely be better air quality wise - and maybe

that is one of his concerns about his son.

But there were many weeks during the pandemic when Americans were banned

from the UK and later on self isolation for 14 days was required.........

PAN - If Alexander's health is his primary concern I would think they'd get out of LA as soon as it was possible. TBH I think it's more convenient work-wise for George to be in LA right now. Not to say that Alexander's health isn't a consideration, but taken as a whole, LA is where George can get the most work done while the virus is still an issue.

I'd say it's a bit of both. I'd assume the air quality in casa Clooney Los Angeles is decent enough (maybe part of his recent renovations was a professional level HEPA filter?) because I'm sure he wouldn't risk his son's health if it wasn't. And of course it's handier for his work, too, which will always be a consideration.
