George Clooney has shared the sweet old fashioned way he and Amal keep the romance alive in their relationship.

The Midnight Sky actor and the human rights lawyer have been married for six years and have 3-year-old twins Alexander and Ella.

In an interview with AARP, the 59-year-old revealed that he and Amal write letters to each other.

"Even in lockdown, I'll write a letter and slip it on her desk, or she'll write a letter and leave it under the pillow, I'm a big believer in letters." He added that if it were a text, it would be different.

The couple is also sharing their love for letter writing with their kids. Once a year they go away for the weekend to write a letter for each child with a date on it to mark milestones in their lives.

George also opened up about the names they chose for the twins saying that he did not want "weird-ass names for our kids."

He explained: "They're already going to have enough trouble. It's hard being the son of somebody famous and successful."
