Royal baby: Meghan and Harry's son 'stole my thunder', jokes George Clooney
Royal baby and Hollywood actor share a birthday
On Monday 6 May, the Hollywood actor turned 58.
Meanwhile, Meghan gave birth to her and Prince Harry's son in the early hours of the morning in Windsor.
While speaking on American talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday evening, Clooney aired his faux annoyance over having to share a birthday with the newest member of the royal family.
"That kid stole my thunder! [That's] my birthday!" the Ocean's 11 star quipped as the audience laughed.
"That would be a bad idea," the actor responded.
"I'm a father of twins and I can barely do that."
Clooney added that he is very unlikely to be named the baby's godfather. "I can promise you that," he stated.
While appearing at the premiere of Catch-22 on Tuesday, a satirical comedy miniseries in which he stars, Clooney urged for the public to be kind towards the duchess.
"I think people should be a little kinder. She's a young woman who just had a baby," he said.
“She’s a woman who is seven months pregnant and she has been pursued and vilified and chased in the same way that Diana was and its history repeating itself,” Clooney told Australian magazine WHO.
“We’ve seen how that ends."
