"We have real security issues on a daily basis," George Clooney, 58, revealed to THR's Scott Feinberg on his May 13 Awards Chatter podcast. "We don't want our kids to be targets, so we have to pay attention."

Otherwise, the Catch-22 producer, director and actor says he has "a pretty good life. I have a beautiful wife and two beautiful kids. … [But] there are things you miss. I miss being able to walk with our kids in Central Park."
