George Clooney's pranks improved by marriage

George Clooney has become a better prankster since he got married.

The 54-year-old actor is renowned for playing jokes on his friends and his pal and 'Money Monster' co-star Julia Roberts said that hasn't changed since he tied the knot with human rights lawyer Amal in September 2014.

Asked if George has "mellowed" since he got married, she admitted he is pulling off "better pranks".

But she declined to reveal how he had managed to pull the wool over her eyes with a gag.

She laughed to E! News: "I can't. I will later. It's a really good one."

And the 48-year-old actress - who has children Hazel and Phinnaeus, 10, and Henry, eight, with husband Daniel Moder - believes marriage makes a person a more "evolved, fabulous" version of who they truly are.

She said: "When you get married, you don't change. You just become the evolved fabulous person of who you are. That's what your person does--you just create the extreme wonderful insides... That's really sappy."

Julia can next be seen in 'Secret in Their Eyes', in which she plays an FBI agent who discovers her own daughter is the victim at a murder scene.

The actress did a lot of research for the role, but declined to meet real parents whose kids had been murdered because she couldn't have "handled" it.

She said: "I didn't [meet parents], because I don't think I could have handled that, quite frankly.

"But I did listen to interviews like radio conversations and things about this unmentionable topic so I did feel like I had some tangible investment in the very particular grief and pain of that.

"I could hear what it sounded like in someone's voice."
