Doug Ross has a lot of explaining to do.

During the March 8 episode of the SmartLess podcast, George Clooney revealed that his wife Amal Clooney is binging his hit show ER.

And for anyone who's never watched the medical drama series, George's character Doug wasn't the best person in the world.

"My wife is watching them now," he explained to hosts Sean Hayes, Jason Bateman and Will Arnett, "and it's getting me in a lot of trouble because I'd forgotten all of the terrible things he was doing picking up on women."

When Jason suggested Amal getting starstruck by her husband's bad boy doctor character, George noted, "Yeah, that's not my wife."

During the interview, the Money Monster star also spoke about the magical moment when he met his wife of six years for the very first time. Famously, the movie star once shared that he would "never get married again" right after his divorce from Talia Balsam in 1993, however, he revealed that Amal "took my breath away."

"She was brilliant and funny and beautiful and kind," he explained. "I was sort of swept off my feet. We got engaged after a few months and got married within the first year that we met. It surprised me more than probably anybody else in the world—and everybody else was pretty surprised."

He continued, "We haven't ever had an argument. You know, everybody's been slammed together because of the coronavirus and a lot of friends' relationships have been tested. For us, it's been really easy."

The couple shares two 3-year-old twins Alexander and Ella.
