And we get it.

George and Amal Clooney are one of the most talked-about couples in the world, making headlines recently for defending their friend Meghan Markle.

This week, they made news for a different reason however, as George revealed that his wife had banned him from riding motorbikes.

The 58-year-old used to be motorbike fanatic but during a Catch 22 panel last week in New York, the actor revealed that he is ‘not allowed to ride motorcycles anymore’, thanks to Amal Clooney.

‘I got into a really bad accident. I hit a guy at 70 miles an hour on my bike. Got launched. And so… I’m off of bikes,’ he reportedly announced.

Going on to explain that his friend and executive producer Grant Heslov is also banned from motorbikes, he continued: ’Grant’s off. We screwed up and our wives were like, “You can never get on a bike again.”’

The crash in question took place in Sardinia last summer, with the actor (according to reports) on his way to a film set on the Italian island, when his bike collided with a car, smashing the Mercedes windscreen.

The actor had been living in the luxury Mediterranean spot with his wife, Amal Clooney, and children, while filming TV mini series Catch 22 – based on Joseph Heller’s iconic novel.
