“He hasn’t asked for advice and I don’t think he needs any,” Gerber said. “He’s just going to do it his way, and it will be the right way.”
Crawford opened up about her kids’ relationship with the actor, noting that she and Gerber used to make their children put a dollar in a jar each time they said a curse word.
“So, George would just give them a hundred bucks at the beginning of the trip,” Crawford said.
Gerber chimed in: “He’d be like, ‘Let me just get this out of the way! Here’s a hundred bucks!’ ”
“His kids might be well-versed in cursing, but I’m sure Amal will temper that,” Crawford continued.
