George Clooney is the ”shiny and pretty” one in his marriage.
The Monuments Men actor married human rights lawyer Amal last September and joked her high-powered job means his role is simply to look good on her arm.
Speaking on the first episode of his new Late Show, host Stephen Colbert asked: “What’s it like to be the arm candy in the relationship? Because she’s a very serious person. She must say, ‘We’re going to meet some extremely intelligent people tonight – these are not show folk.’ ”
George replied: ”Shiny and pretty – that’s mostly what I do now.”
Before tying the knot, the 54-year-old star – who was previously married to Talia Balsam – had vowed never to wed again and he admitted people were unconvinced by his relationship with Amal.
He said: ”They said it wouldn’t last.”
As George didn’t have a movie to promote on the show, he an Stephen debuted clips from a fake film called ‘Decision Strike’ in which the actor played a ”tough, no-nonsense secretary general of the UN.”
One excerpt showed George coming out of a room and saying, ”not now dammit, I’m defusing a nuclear bomb,” while in another, he came out of the same room after romancing a woman.
George joked: ”Sex sells, Stephen. I did my own sex. I did all of my own stunts.”
