George Clooney: Having kids is not my top priority

GEORGE Clooney says having children isn't high on his list of priorities.

The 'Tomorrowland' star, who is married to British human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, has "thought about" having a baby, but hinted they have no plans to start a family together in the near future.

Asked if he has ever thought about having children, the 54-year-old star said: "I mean, I've thought about it, I suppose. But I haven't really--it hasn't been high on my list of...I've been asked it a lot lately because I've gotten married and I'm doing a movie with kids in it..."

But the Oscar winner admits his family is really important to him.

He told Charlie Rose on CBS series 'This Morning': "I'm really close to my family..."

Aside from having a good relationship with his mother, Nina, and father Nick, George also adores his nephew.

He proudly added: "My nephew was just made prom king from the high school that I went to."

George and Amal, 37, tied the knot in Italy last September after he popped the question after just seven months of dating.

The actor "knew fairly quickly" that the brunette beauty was the woman for him.

He added: "[I have] someone who I can talk to about anything, and someone who I care more about than I've cared about anything. It's nice."
