George Clooney, 59, made a candid admission about his wife Amal Clooney, 43, as he explained his TV antics have not gone down well with his other half. The Hollywood actor, who starred as Dr. Doug Ross in the medical drama series ER, commented that his character had Amal questioning him.

George was joined at a recent reunion for Stars In The House by his former co-stars Julianna Marguiles, Anthony Edwards, Noah Wyle and Gloria Reuben.

The dad-of-two revealed that Dr Ross’ actions and numerous relationships on the programme had Amal quizzing him on when he planned to “settle down”.

The two-time Oscar winner starred in the medical drama’s first five seasons from 1995 to 1999.

His character was depicted as a womaniser whose behaviour often took on a toxic light.

George said: “This has been a very, very disastrous thing for me because I forgot all of the terrible things I’d done as Dr. Ross!

“My wife keeps going, ‘Is that it? Are you done? Season 3 – do you finally settle down with Nurse Hathaway? It’s been a disaster for my marriage.”

It’s been 11 years since the final episode of the hit medical drama series aired on NBC.

Speaking about the long-running show, George commented: “I have to say, you know, it’s such great television.

“I look at these faces and all of us share a really unique moment in time; we went from obscurity to a very different life, almost overnight. Tony was our fearless leader.”

“It was such an exciting thing to be a part of,” he added.

The TV and film star also addressed the idea of a possible show revival as he shared his concerns.

“When you look at the show, it’d be hard to say that we could do it [again] at the level that we did it,” George shared via TV Line.

“Because boy, I’ve actually been watching it a bit because my wife’s been watching it, which is very odd, and I have to say, it’s such great television.”

“I think it was classy of [creator John Wells] not to franchise it and do ER: New York or ER: L.A,” said Noah, who played John Carter.

Julianna, who played Carol Hathaway in the series agreed, and said: “I don’t think you can reboot it.

“I think it’s what George said – you can’t capture lightning in a bottle twice. I think you have to leave what was so beautiful and move on. It feels like it would cheapen it for me.”

Ming-Na Wen, who played Jing-Mei Chen, added: “I would love to do a reboot only to be able to hang out with this group of people.”

George has previously reflected on his character Dr Ross’ and admitted he could get away with a lot of “dastardly things”.

“I was a drunk – but he loved kids,” he told the Independent.

“At the end [of each episode], I’d be like, ‘Hey, nobody touches that kid!’ so I could get away with doing lots of dastardly things.”
