"It's very odd and I have to say, before I had the twins, I felt that about her. I felt that I met someone who I would absolutely trade my life for, you know," Clooney said. "I met someone that her life meant more to me than my life and I never had that experience before."
Amal also appears on the show, talking about her and her husband's experience sponsoring Yazidi refugee Hazim Adval. "Well, David, I've had the privilege of representing a number of Yazidis, who have been the victims of genocide perpetrated by ISIS over the last couple of years, that's how I met Hazim," Amal said.

The couple sponsored Hazim so he could study in the United States, where he currently attends the University of Chicago.
Clooney is Letterman's second guest on the show; former President Barack Obama's appearance premiered last month. Clooney's episode will premiere on Netflix February 9.
