Washington: George Clooney joked in an interview at Monday’s 84th Annual Academy Awards nominees luncheon in Beverly Hills that he was “looking to adopt very successful people.”

At the top of the list is Shailene Woodley, who plays his troubled teenage daughter in ‘The Descendants’.

“She’s 20 and smart, and I figure she has a big career ahead and can support me,” Us Magazine quoted him as telling The Insider.

Another perk to adopting Woodley was that she’s “house-trained,” just like his cocker spaniel Einstein.

“I’ve got a dog from the pound that was already house-trained, so that makes sense to me,” he said.
