Does George Clooney want to have children with his new wife, Amal Clooney? Some people would like to know.
Charlie Rose wanted to know: "It hasn't been high on my list," the star told him.
ET Canada wanted to know: "It was nice how [you] did that. That was good. You didn't even take a slow turn, you went right into it."
And the German newspaper Bild wanted to know as well. However, according to his representative, Bild didn't bother to ask Clooney himself whether or not he wanted kids before they reported on it.
"[It's a] made up story," Clooney's publicist Stan Rosenfield told Yahoo of Bild's report that he and his equally busy wife were interested in having children, "but we're taking our time."
Clooney has been dogged by questions about plans for the future of his family since he married Amal Alamuddin, a highly decorated human rights lawyer, last September. In promoting his new film Tomorrowland, those questions have been even more persistent. But at every turn, Clooney has appeared highly uncomfortable with the question.
"I've thought about [having children] I suppose, but I haven't really — it hasn't been high on my list," Clooney said during an interview with CBS This Morning earlier this month. "I've been asked a lot lately because I've gotten married and I'm doing a movie with kids in it. You should see how creative the way they ask me."
Rose attempted to press the subject further: "You know why I'm asking you, though, because you have such a great dad, and you're so close to him. That must be a powerful emotion for you."
However Clooney wouldn't bite: "It is, and I'm really close with my mom, too," he responded. "I'm really close with my family."
