Clooney jokes about becoming U.S. president: 'Sounds like fun'

Actor George Clooney smiles as he arrives on a motorboat during the 74th edition of the Venice Film Festival in Venice Italy Saturday Sept. 2 2017

Glamorous and stately, Amal and George Clooney have finally signed their big comeback on the red carpet on the occasion of the new edition of the Venice film Festival.

George Clooney joked about being president during a press conference for his new film "Suburbicon" at the Venice Film Festival on Saturday. [Fatherhood] has made me much older. "This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives". Photo: GettyThe couple have been married for three years. "(Alexander) is a thug already.

In Suburbicon, Matt Damon plays a workingman whose life seems to drastically change after a home invasion goes terribly wrong. "He's a moose! Literally, he just sits and he eats", George told ET.

The Money Monster star, 56, kept it classic in a dapper tux while escorting the human rights lawyer, 39, in a silk chiffon, lilac Versace gown, to the Suburbicon screening at the 2017 Venice Film Festival at Sala Grande.

"Like, checking IDs on the way into the nursery", Clooney quipped back.

The actor and director said Ella was "very elegant, and all eyes".

Three killed in Delhi's Ghazipur landfill collapse
According to DCP (East) Omvir Singh, the woman was probably riding a scooter when the site collapsed. Also, all the vehicles that submerged into the canal were retrieved, including a JCB.

"And I know exactly what he meant", Damon said.

Speaking in the city where he married his lawyer wife Amal three years ago, Clooney revealed that the concept for the film, which was developed from an old Coen brothers script, came to him around the start of the U.S. presidential campaign.

Then, while looking to try to make a film out of the Levittown story, he remembered that the Coen brothers had written a script called "Suburbicon", so those two elements were meshed together.

"I was watching a lot of speeches on the campaign trail about building fences and scapegoating minorities", Clooney said.

However, he said it was not about Trump.

As for their children's more traditional monikers, the actor says he and his wife simply "didn't want to have really dumb names". "But it certainly got angry and it got angrier as we were shooting".

As for Clooney's skills as a director, Damon, tongue firmly in cheek, explained, "I've done seven or eight movies with George, and the key is when he gives you the direction, you do the opposite".
