For some of us, a sign of adulthood is learning how to check the electricity meter, change a lightbulb and successfully get an ISA.

For George Clooney, it's cleaning up a baby sick.

'I just have to clean the barf off of my tux,' the 56-year-old actor explained to the Associated Press in an interview published this week.

'It used to be my barf but now it's the twins' barf. So it all works out,' he added.

The actor, who became a father to twins Ella and Alexander at the age of 56 earlier this summer, also revealed he's currently on 'nappy duty', which can be a pretty big handful when you have not one but two kids to care for.

'Right now my job is changing diapers and walking them around a little bit,' Clooney admitted. 'I really didn't think at 56 that I would be the parent of twins. Don't make plans. You always have to just enjoy the ride.'

However, when it comes to his wife, British human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, the Oscar-winner gushed that she's taken to motherhood like a pro.

'She's like an Olympic athlete,' he revealed. 'She's doing so beautifully.'

However, it sounds like nothing could have prepared him for what fatherhood had in store. 'Suddenly, you're responsible for other people, which is terrifying,' he added.

Having recently donated $1 million to fight hate groups through the Clooney Foundation after the violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia earlier this month, the actor/director also took the opportunity to touch on President Donald Trump's remarks that 'both sides' were to blame for the violence.

'It becomes increasingly clear how in over his head and incapable this man is of being president of the United States,' Clooney said. 'The good news is that our other institutions — meaning press, finally, and judges and senators — have proven that the country works. There is a check and balance.'

Father, actor, activist - is there anything Clooney can't do?
