Hollywood star George Clooney, who got married to lawyer Amal Alamuddin last year, says having kids does not feature in his priority list right now.
Host Charlie Rose asked George, in an interview on CBS This Morning, "The one thing that you don't have in your life is children. Do you even think about that?"
The 54-year-old Tomorrowland actor replied, "I don't really (think about it). I mean, I've thought about it, I suppose, but it hasn't been high on my list. I've been asked (about kids) a lot lately because I've gotten married and I'm doing a movie with kids in it."
He then joked that some people had been really "creative" about it.
Rose further asked him, "You got such a great dad (journalist Nick Clooney), and you're so close to him. That must be a powerful emotion of you," to which the Gravity actor replied, "It is. And I'm really close to my mom (Nina Clooney), too. I'm really close to my family."
"So family's important to you?" Ross asked. "Oh, yeah, big time! My sister and I are very close too... My nephew was just made prom king from the high school that I went to," Clooney said.
The actor also gushed about his wife's job, saying, "The things that she does have great meaning. There are consequences when what she does works and doesn't work, and they're much bigger than the kind of consequences I deal with."
