George Clooney has quipped that his wife Amal's huge amounts of luggage are "an issue" when they travel together.

The 54-year-old was always considered one of Hollywood's most eligible bachelors but last year he finally settled down with the 37-year-old lawyer.

He's currently promoting his latest film Tomorrowland and is enjoying his wife's company as he attends premieres around the world. But there's one issue - her huge amounts of luggage.

“We are going to go to Shanghai and Tokyo because she's never been,” he smiled to ET Online. “I love Shanghai. I was there six to eight months ago. I love that it changes so much every year. It's amazing how much it changes.

“The suitcases are an issue... It's like we have another van for the suitcases.”

Yesterday George was in London for the British Tomorrowland premiere and while he had a great time signing autographs for fans, he also admitted he can't wait for press duties to be over so he can relax in Lake Como, Italy, with a glass of wine.

George has a villa in the pretty location and it's also where he and Amal tied the knot. The star recently made it clear who has the upper hand in their marriage.

"We don't disagree on many things so far. We will see. And since she's smarter than me, the only way we resolve anything is by arm wrestling. That is my only chance of winning anything with her because if it's an intellectual battle, I would lose," he recently laughed.

"Look, it’s good to surround yourself with anybody who is smarter than you, and for me the bar’s pretty low anyway. But Amal is way up there. She’s brilliant."
