Matt Damon on George Clooney’s Baby Annoucement


George Clooney was one Hollywood’s best-known bachelors until he married his wife, Amal Clooney back in 2014.

Now news has broken that the Hollywood actor is expecting twins.

This was the answer to the question that many have asked themselves for years when it came to Clooney-will he ever have kids?

E! News caught up with Matt Damon at last night’s premiere of The Great Wall, which will be in theaters on Friday. Damon said, “It wasn’t a question for many years—it was a total nonstarter. But once he met [Amal] everything changed.”

So when news broke that Amal was pregnant with twins, Matt wasn’t shocked at all.

Damon also went on to say, “I wasn’t surprised when he told me. I’m extremely happy for them, but once he met her, I had a feeling that was in the cards.”

Now, will Damon be called Uncle Matt? With laughter, Damon said, “Those kids are going to have a lot of uncles. George has a lot of really, really great friends. Those kids, they’re lucky enough to have those two parents, but they’ll have a lot of uncles and aunts.”

On another note, will Clooney make an appearance in the female-driven Ocean’s 8 movie?

There’s confirmation from Damon that he will be, “My scene is not with any of the boys. From what I understand there will be more boys in it. I don’t have any scenes as far as I know with any of them.”

Damon will make a cameo in the Ocean’s 8 movie that is being produced by Clooney in the next few weeks. The female stars of Ocean’s 8 include stars: Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter and Awkwafina. The movie centers on Danny Ocean’s sister who is being played by Bullock as she tries to pull off a jewelry heist during New York’s Met Gala by putting together the perfect team to make sure the heist goes off without a hitch.

Well Clooney, Congrats not just on the twins, but the movie as well.
