George Clooney reveals reason for taking break from acting

Academy Award winner George Clooney is not going to appear on the big screens any time soon.

The ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ star, in an interview, said, “Look, I acted for a long time and, you know, I’m 56. I’m not the guy that gets the girl anymore. I shouldn’t be the guy that gets the girl.”

“But, look, if somebody’s got Paul Newman in ‘The Verdict’, I’d jump. But there aren’t that many like that. Acting used to be how I paid the rent, but I sold a tequila company for a billion fucking dollars. I don’t need money,” he added, as reported by E! Online.

Back in June, Clooney confirmed that he and his business partners sold their tequila company Casamigos for $1 billion.

“I have money,” said Clooney. “So I can fight to make movies I want to make. If you look at what I’ve been in over the past 15 years, for the most part they weren’t going to get made if I didn’t do them. 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.
