George Clooney has revealed that he was ready for one aspect of the coronavirus pandemic, as he has been cutting his own hair for decades.
The 59-year-old Hollywood actor has been keeping it simple for the past 20 years or so thanks to being his own barber.
The Gravity star opened up about his grooming habits to Tracy Smith on CBS Sunday morning and said he has been using a Flowbee, which cuts hair and vacuums up the trimmings in one sweep.
He was speaking about his routines since Covid-19 left a lot of people in quarantine, in a bid to control the spread of the virus.
It turns out that life hasn't changed much for George as he has been used to the same routine for many years, and that includes trimming his own barnet.

After being asked about his routines in quarantine, Clooney revealed his routine hasn't changed in decades.
He said on the show: "I've been cutting my own hair for 25 years.
"My hair's really like straw, and so it's easy to cut. You can't really make too many mistakes.
"So, years ago, I bought a thing called a Flowbee, which when we were…'
Show host Tracy Smith couldn't believe it and interrupted the star: "You did not!"

The Flowbee has been advertised on US television since the 1980s and the device cuts hair and collects the clippings and it seems that George swears by it.
He declared: "I still have it! My haircuts take literally two minutes. Listen, man, it works!"
George also opened up about his relationship with his wife Amal Clooney, saying how she has "changed everything" in his life, as she they share three-year-old twins Alexander and Ella.
In a loving tribute to his wife, George said: "There is no question that having Amal in my life changed everything for me.
"It was the first time that everything that she did and everything about her was infinitely more important than anything about me.
"And then we had these two knuckleheads. It is very fulfilling and something I didn’t see coming."

George went on to say that the thought of marrying took a while to surface when he was dating Amal.
He admitted: "We never talked about marriage when we were dating. I asked her out of the blue, took her a long time to say yes.
"I was on my knee for like 20 minutes, I finally said, 'Look, I’m gonna throw my hip out.'"
He continued: "We never talked about having kids, and then one day we just said, 'What do you think?' We go to the doctor and you do the ultrasound.
"They’re like, 'You got a baby boy!' and I was like, 'Baby boy, fantastic!'
"And they go, 'And you got another one there.' I was up for one. All of a sudden, it’s two.
"It’s hard to get me to not talk and I stood there for like 10 minutes just staring at this piece of paper going, 'What? Two?'"
