Actor Geoge Clooney has revealed that he is worried about his family's safety as his human rights lawyer wife Amal has brought a case against the Islamic State (ISIS) to the French courts, according to reports.

The 58-year-old Hollywood star made the revelation during a podcast and added that he doesn't want his children to be the terrorist organization's target. "We don’t want our kids to be targets, so we have to pay attention. We have real security issues on a daily basis," Clooney said while talking to the Hollywood Reporter's Awards Chatter podcast.

The star also admitted to missing being able to walk freely with his toddler twins Ella and Alexander in New York's Central Park. The loving father said he is also conscious of a "bounty on my kids’ head for a photo”.

Clooney, during the podcast, said that ever since the birth of his children in 2017 "everything" has changed for him, especially "how you have to protect them."

41-year-old lawyer Amal had asked the United Nations Security Council last month to prosecute the terrorists in Iraq and Syria for rape.

She had argued that if the UN could not stop the atrocities of sexual conflict from occurring during conflicts, then "at least [the council] must punish it". The council, therefore, passed a resolution to persecute the culprits.

The Hollywood A-lister said that, with his wife taking the first case against ISIS to court, "we have plenty of issues – real, proper security issues – that we have to deal with on a fairly daily basis." The star, however, added that their family still has to "live our lives… We don’t hide in corners."

This is not the first time the star couple have had a security issue.

Clooney, three years ago, obtained a five-year restraining order against a man who threatened to harm the pair.

A TMZ report back then stated that Mark Bibbee sent the actor's team 189 pages of "rambling, delusional and disturbing" documents, including a reference to a fabricated plot to assassinate former President George H.W. Bush.

Amal Clooney, the famous human rights lawyer, has been representing a group of Iraqi victims, including Nobel Peace Prize winner Nadia Murad, who has raised the plight of Yazidi women seized by jihadists having lived through the ordeal in captivity.
