The movie star is close friends with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who welcomed first son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor into the world on Monday.

Is George Clooney in line to be godfather to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s newborn son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor?

After all, the movie star is close friends with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and attended the couple’s royal wedding last year with wife Amal. Clooney also has repeatedly defended the former “Suits” actress from criticism in the press.

Everybody loves their rumors,” Clooney told “Extra” at the premiere of his new Hulu miniseries “Catch-22.”

Clooney, whose twins turn 2 next month, continued:

No. It’s not true. You don’t want me to be a godparent of anybody. I’m barely a parent at this point, it’s so hard. It’s frightening.

Clooney shares a birthday (he turned 58 on Monday) with the newest member of the British royal family.

He lightheartedly described it as “kind of irritating if you think about it.”

“Cause I’ve already had to split it with Orson Welles and Sigmund Freud and now this comes in,” Clooney added. “I’m moving down the line very quickly.”
