George and Amal Clooney looked completely stunning on the red carpet at Venice Film Festival yesterday. And now, George has opened up about becoming a father to twins, and revealed what exactly inspired the names Alexander and Ella.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Clooney explained, "We figured these kids are going to be looked at a lot and watched and [have their] every move sort of judged... So we looked for some sort of normal names. We didn't have any great inspiration. It wasn't Alexander the Great and Ella Fitzgerald." Above all, though, Clooney revealed that it was important that the twins didn't have "really dumb names."

Clearly, Clooney is adjusting to fatherhood pretty well, and lovingly discussed what family life is like now that the babies have arrived. He told Entertainment Tonight, "They start out with a personality right off the bat. [Alexander] is a thug already... He's a moose! Literally, he just sits and he eats." But as for his daughter, Ella, Clooney revealed, "She's very elegant, and all eyes. She looks like Amal, thank god." The actor is obviously very smitten with his wife and children.

But fatherhood has meant a lot of changes for the actor, who was previously known as an eternal bachelor. Clooney said, "None of it is real until all of a sudden they're standing there covered in slime and crying. You're like, wait a minute, what is that? We were just two and now we're four... Everything changes pretty quickly."

Judging by Clooney's interview, it definitely sounds as though his life has changed for the better.
