Why George Clooney Thinks His Wife Amal Clooney's Work Is More Important

"Tomorrowland" actor talks about his new movie, life with Amal Clooney.

“We had not told anyone we were getting married but you have to post a thing in the paper,” Clooney said. “And we get in the boats and headed down the Cipriani, down the Grande Canal, and it was just thousands of people out and it was crazy... and I said, ‘you know what? This is what it’s going be like for the next three days’”

Then Clooney suggested he and his new bride embrace the fervor, saying “I was like, ‘let’s just stand up,’ and we were waving at people.”

But Clooney said he was happy his wedding day was able to bring some happiness to others too.

“It was right in the middle of the Ebola scare and everything else, there was all this bad news, and people were in a good mood for that and it made it fun for all of us,” he said.

“It’s kind of like the theme of this film,” Clooney continued, referring to “Tomorrowland.”

“Tomorrowland” is a movie that defies categorization. Eagerly anticipated yet highly secretive, “Tomorrowland” tells the story of a parallel world, an image of an ideal future from a 1964 perspective, with hovering monorails and leather suits, not the future we’re in now with Twitter, which Clooney said he refuses to use.

“I'm saying for me, the only thing that could happen is bad. Right? I have two drinks, I go home and make a Mother Theresa joke, and I wake up in the morning and my career is over,” he joked.

“I grew up on Walt Disney produced films, when he was alive, and there was darkness, parts of ‘Pinocchio’ that was scary… Captain Nemo is haunted guy,” Bird said. “Disney was in love with storytelling, even his amusement park, that had a big impact, that’s what I called upon.”

“I sent in tapes, audition tapes. They brought me in for the casting director, then I auditioned for Brad and I went back in for the casting director, I went back in for Brad, he didn’t remember me at all,” Robertson said, laughing.

“Tomorrowland” hits theaters nationwide on Friday, May 22.
