George Clooney doesn't want to act so much

George Clooney

During the discussion, he said, "I acted for a long time, and you know, I'm 56".

George Clooney has hinted he may be giving up acting because he's not getting leading man roles anymore - but it's fine because he's cashed up.

"But I sold a tequila company for a billion f--kg dollars". But, look, if somebody's got Paul Newman in 'The Verdict, ' I'd jump.

Clooney added he "has money" so he can now put effort into films that need to be made and more importantly, the movie he wants to create.

The 56-year-old star said he can no more play a conventional lover boy who gets the girl, reported The Sunday Times.

In June (17), the Oscar-winner announced he and his business partners Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman had sold the liquor company Casamigos.

"I don't have political aspirations" he told the Times, though later he admitted, "So many people since Trump was elected have really been pushing on me to get more involved in actual politics, specifically at the highest office".

He continued, "I have money". I don't need money'. "Nobody was going to make "Good Night, and Good Luck, ' 'Michael Clayton" or 'Up in the Air, ' and I fought to get those out there". "Well, yeah, I shouldn't be the guy that gets the girl".

As to how hard he went into bat for passion projects, he said he did whatever it took: "I used to do coffee commercials".

But he's keen to keep directing movies, despite poor reviews - Suburbicon, the latest effort from new father-of-two was released last month (Oct17). "But, mostly, I can help in ways I actually know very well, like messaging [voters]", he added, noting that what the Democratic Party lacks is a candidate who can "light up a room".

Furthermore, Clooney stated many of his acquaintances have been pressuring him into getting into politics, but he doesn't "have any political aspirations" especially for the highest office whom Donald Trump now inhabits.

"Trump, for all his awful instincts, is very charismatic".
