George Clooney has been a dad for almost three months, but there are still some things he's adjusting to, i.e. throw up, diaper duty and pretty much being exhausted all the time.

"It's a pretty angry film", Clooney said. Clooney says very soon, he will have to "clean the barf off of my tux".

In making Suburbicon, which was written decades ago by Joel and Ethan Coen, Clooney said he "found it interesting to talk about building walls and scapegoating minorities". After there is a home invasion in a local suburb, paranoia and fear-mongering befall the neighbourhood; Clooney believes this is a message that reflects our current culture.

A staunch liberal activist and outspoken Trump critic, Clooney was not shy about attacking the president's fitness for office.

"It becomes increasingly clear how in over his head and incapable this man is of being president of the United States", the 56-year-old actor told the Associated Press. "There is a check and balance".

It's no wonder he's still in disbelief at both Amal and the twins.

"Suddenly, you're responsible for other people, which is terrifying", he said of Amal. According to the new father, he credits Amal for the hard work.

He added: "Right now my job is changing diapers and walking them around a little bit".

"I really didn't think at 56 that I would be the parent of twins", he explains. "Don't make plans. You always have to just enjoy the ride", he admitted.

"She's like an Olympic athlete", he gushes.
