Speaking to E! News at the awards show, Clooney joked that he is slowly coming to grips with ageing.

"I was a little surprised how grey [my beard] was when it came out," Clooney teased, adding: "It came out and it's grey! You're like, 'What the hell happened?'"

He then quipped: "I was young once but now I'm old."
