George Clooney Admits Decision to Teach Twins Italian Was ‘A Really Dumb Thing’

Admitting his parenting mistake to late night host Jimmy Kimmel, the star of ‘The Midnight Sky’ jokes that he and his wife Amal have armed their three-year-olds with a secret language.

AceShowbizGeorge Clooney and his wife Amal made a big parenting mistake when they decided their twins should speak Italian – because mum and dad don’t.

The Oscar winner, who owns a villa in Lake Como, didn’t realise there was a language barrier between himself and his three-year-old kids until they started speaking fluent Italian.

“We did a really dumb thing, which is they speak fluent Italian,” the actor/director told U.S. late night host Jimmy Kimmel.

“But I don’t speak Italian. My wife doesn’t speak Italian. It’s terrible. We’ve armed them with a language, a secret language,” Clooney added, laughing.
