George Clooney Says Wife Amal Is Watching ER and His Character Is ‘Getting Me in a Lot of Trouble

Denis Makarenko /

If you watched ER during its heyday you’ll remember George Clooney’s character Doug Ross had a bit of a reputation.

George Clooney recently went on the podcast Smartless with Sean Hayes, Jason Bateman, and Will Arnett where he revealed his wife was watching old episodes of the TV series ER for the first time and she isn’t impressed.

“My wife is watching them now, and it’s getting me in a lot of trouble because I’d forgotten all of the terrible things [his character Doug Ross] was doing picking up on women.”

Host Jason Bateman said it would be funny if Amal became starstruck with her husband based on the appeal of his character and Clooney quipped back, “Yeah, that’s not my wife.”

Maybe she’ll be happy with him again when she sees how it ended.

(Spoiler alert, obviously)
