As the actor revealed in an interview with AARP, even during solitary confinement he and his wife Amal Alamuddin continued to write letters that were delivered by hand. “Even during the lockdown I write letters and leave them on the desk and she writes me letters and leaves them under my pillow”. A good practice that goes well with George Clooney’s passion for the letters he collects. “I have letters from Paul Newman, Walter Cronkite, Gregory Peck. I have them all framed. “.

The practice of handwritten lettering is something that the couple also wanted to pass on to their twins. It is in fact the custom of the couple, once a year, to enjoy a weekend alone. Before doing this, however, both George and Amal write a letter to each of the two children. Because if the words fly, the written letters remain. To become a priceless treasure.
