George Clooney is 'shiny and pretty'
George Clooney is the "shiny and pretty" one in his marriage.
The 'Monuments Men' actor married human rights lawyer Amal last September and joked her high-powered job means his role is simply to look good on her arm.
Speaking on the first episode of his new 'Late Show', presenter Stephen Colbert asked: What's it like to be the arm candy in the relationship?
"Because she's a very serious person. She must say, 'We're going to meet some extremely intelligent people tonight - these are not show folk.' "
George replied: "Shiny and pretty - that's mostly what I do now."
Before tying the knot, the 54-year-old star - who was previously married to Talia Balsam - had vowed never to wed again and he admitted people were unconvinced by his relationship with Amal.
He said: "They said it wouldn't last."
As George didn't have a movie to promote on the show, he an Stephen debuted clips from a fake film called 'Decision Strike' in which the actor played a "tough, no-nonsense secretary general of the UN."
One excerpt showed George coming out of a room and saying, "not now dammit, I'm defusing a nuclear bomb", while in another , he came out of the same room after romancing a woman.
George joked: "Sex sells Stephen. I did my own sex. I did all of my own stunts."
