But as a friend and sometimes costar for years, Damon privately heard the news from Clooney in the fall.
“I almost started crying, I was so happy for him,” Damon told “Entertainment Tonight Canada” in the clip below.
Damon said he advised Clooney to keep a lid on any disclosure until Amal reached the 12-week mark. “Four weeks later, I’m like, ‘We’re good right?’ “ Clooney answered, “We’re good.”
“They’re great people and they’re going to be great parents,” Damon said.
