While he’s not nominated for an Oscar this year, George Clooney did take home the French equivalent of the Academy’s golden statue at the César ceremony.

Touted beforehand as “the most charismatic actor of his generation,” the Ocean’s Eleven star and his wife Amal, pregnant with their twins, brought Hollywood glamour to Paris at the Salle Pleyel on Friday. Dressed in his signature black Armani tuxedo and bow tie, Clooney looked dashing next to his wife, who showed off her baby bump in a fitted white gown tapered with an ombré of ostrich feathers.

The father-to-be was honored with a career award at the ceremony, along with French film legend Jean Paul Belmondo, who also received a Lifetime Tribute during the evening.

After a lengthy clip real of his greatest hits, Clooney was called onstage by host Jerome Commandeur. Greeted with a standing ovation, Clooney thanked the crowd saying, “Merci, merci” several times. Commandeur then invited Oscar winner Jean Dujardin, Clooney’s Monuments Men costar, to present him with the César d’Honneur. The former costars embraced, and Clooney, excusing himself to the audience for his “horrible” French, asked Dujardin to translate for him.

What’s it like to be the “arm candy” in the relationship?

That’s the question Stephen Colbert had for George Clooney during his premiere “Late Show” episode on Tuesday.
Colbert brought up Clooney’s marriage to human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, asking “What is it like to be the arm candy in a relationship, because she’s the very serious person?” The host added, “She must say like, ‘We’re going to meet extremely intelligent people tonight – these are not show folk. Just be shiny and pretty.”

“That’s mostly what I do,” Clooney responded.

Colbert also congratulated the actor on his upcoming 1-year wedding anniversary on Sept. 27.
Clooney’s response? “They said it wouldn’t last.”

CBS’ new late-night host even had a little gift for the power couple: a paperweight from Tiffany’s with the engraving, “I don’t know you.”
The interview didn’t solely focus on Clooney’s love life, though. The pair also did a funny bit about a fake movie called “Decision Strike.” © 2015 CBS Interactive Inc. All Rights Reserved.

George Clooney really doesn’t want David Letterman to retire from the “Late Show” on CBS — so much so he handcuffed himself to the late-night host during Thursday episode.

“Let me see your wrist,” he asked Letterman.  He soon whipped out a pair of handcuffs and linked their respective wrists together.

“Wait a minute!” Letterman said.  But Clooney wasn’t having it, repeatedly saying “nope ” and “no.” He then tossed the keys into the studio audience and said, “You’re not going anywhere, David Letterman.”

“Now George is this something left over from the bachelor days?” Letterman asked the newly-married actor.

“It could make for an awkward evening,” Clooney said later. Catch the full interview below.

George appeared on Jimmy Kimmel in May 2015 where he and Jimmy took time to swap prank stories.  Both are notorious for their pranks and hinted at things to come in the clip below. George tells of a prank he’s working on now that sounds like it might be his biggest one yet. He says “there are many famous people all across this town right now that have framed photos of this hanging on their wall and don’t have any idea what I’ve done. It’s horrifying.” Jimmy knows the details of the prank and adds that it might be considered a “federal offense.”
