Pinterest George Clooney is going to be a dad! The actor and his wife, Amal, are expecting twins, PEOPLE has confirmed. Take a look back at the actor’s 2006 Sexiest Man Alive interview, in which he opens up about his thoughts on marriage and kids. He kicked off the year in dapper style to accept his first-ever Oscar, but on this cool L.A. evening, George Clooney is movie-star dazzling in an offhanded way: jeans, scuffed Harley motorcycle boots, a black tee and a green rubber bracelet that reads “Not on Our Watch,” a reference to his activism on behalf of the troubled Darfur region of Sudan.

Everybody says this, but sense of humor is No. 1 for me. It’s certainly what’s most attractive. It’s not the first thing you notice at 21, but it’s the first thing you notice now. You also have to have a sense of humor about my life. It certainly has had an effect on relationships, but I would bet less of an effect than my own issues or insecurities. You can’t really blame outside forces for things not working out. You have to take some responsibility. You told Barbara Walters back in 1995 that “I’II never marry again.” Have you changed your mind? The truth is,...
