Amal Clooney has laid down the law! George Clooney recently revealed that his wife has banned him from riding motorcycles – after his accident in 2018. “I got into a really bad accident,” the 56-year-old told the crowd during the Catch-22 panel in New York City. “I hit a guy at 70 miles an hour on my bike. Got launched. And so, I’m off of bikes.” George is in good company. The actor shared that Catch-22’s executive producer Grant Heslov is also banned from any two-wheeled vehicles.
