George Clooney gushes about wife Amal in Letterman's next Netflix interview
David Letterman has found the next guest for his Netflix talk show.
The streaming service announced Wednesday Oscar-winning actor George Clooney will appear on the second episode of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, set to premiere Friday, Feb. 9 at 12:01 a.m. ET.
Letterman’s interview with Clooney will cover his formative years as a child, his journey through Hollywood, and his personal life — including his recent roles as both a father to twins Alexander and Ella and husband to wife Amal Clooney, the world-renowned human rights lawyer he married in 2014.
“A mutual friend of ours said, ‘I’m stopping by and can I bring my friend?’ And I was like, ‘Of course.’ I got a call from my agent who called me and said, ‘I met this woman who’s coming to your house who you’re gonna marry,'” Clooney, speaking to the veteran host in the preview above, says of meeting his future spouse for the first time. “And the funniest thing was my mom and dad were visiting, so my parents were there, and we just talked and we stayed up all night talking and then, you know, I got her email address ‘cause she was going to send me some pictures of my parents and then, we started writing and I didn’t really, I didn’t know if she wanted to go out with me. I just thought, you know, we were buddies.”
Making his appearance on Letterman’s program, Clooney follows in the footsteps of former President Barack Obama, who sat down with the former face of CBS’ The Late Show to launch his Netflix endeavor on Jan. 12.
