The #1 Eating Habit George Clooney Swears by To Look Amazing in His 60s

A looker and a family man—no wonder why the world loves him.

George Clooney may only be 61 years old, but he's pulled off so many accomplishments in his lifetime. It's no secret that Clooney is known for his acting, and now directing and screenwriting. However, since Clooney emerged as an actor in the 90s, the man from Kentucky has also been known for his good looks.

Rocking the grey hair and beard, the dashing celebrity continues to catch the eyes of beloved fans. With much success, how does Clooney maintain the reputation of 1997 and 2006's  "Sexiest Man Alive?" According to People, George Clooney enjoys family dinners almost every night. 

Clooney and his wife, Amal, have twin children, Ella and Alexander. Although they are self-proclaimed terrible cooks, their personal chef has been known to be a master of the kitchen, bringing the family together for delicious meals.

According to Clooney's interview in People, their chef, Viviana Frizzi, "can make anything, including handmade gnocchi with pesto that would make you cry."


He also told the magazine that their chef cooks almost every night for the family now because of the twins.

"Going out isn't as easy or as interesting as it used to be," he said.

These family dinners have been known to help expand longevity and happiness. According to the Blue Zone Diet, having strong social connections with a sense of purpose and community, also including which also includes putting family first and maintaining a healthy support system, are ways to live to at least 100 years old. These family dinners the Clooneys share are part of the diet's lifestyle, as it's more than just the food you eat.

However, the food the Clooneys eat coincides with the choices of the Blue Zone Diet. Their chef comes from Italy, the same country that has Sardinia—one of the five parts of the world's highest percentage of people who live to be 100 years or older.

The foods eaten are fresh, home-cooked meals that the whole family enjoys. According to People, George and Amal enjoy a margarita pizza with rocket salad. Along with their weekly pizza nights, their chef cooks anything from sushi to Lebanese and Indian cuisine. She also cooks risottos and other Italian dishes.

Even the twins have expanded their pallet to try all of their chef's delicious meals.

"The twins are not fussy eaters," Chef Frizzi tells the magazine. The twins will eat salmon, tomato risotto, Margherita pizza, and ricotta with raspberries.

As much as George enjoys the fresh, nutritious food he eats, he would rather sit with his family and savor the food than actually cook it.

"Honestly, Amal and I are such poor chefs that any lesson from Vivi in the kitchen would be like teaching a whale to fly," he says to the magazine.
