Hollywood star George Clooney has revealed his plan regarding his future in politics. The Oscar-winning actor, who has been politically active throughout his career, has confirmed that he does not plan on running for political office in the future.
During an appearance on BBC’s The Andrew Marr Show, the Midnight Sky actor, 60, was asked if he ever plans on running for political office, taking a break from acting.
"No, because I actually would like to have a nice life,” responded the Ocean’s Eleven star without a second thought.
"I turned 60 this year, and I had a conversation with my wife [Amal Clooney], and we were working a lot, as we both do, and I said, 'We have to think of these as the halcyon years.' If we have our health, which we do … and I'm 60 and I can still play basketball and still do the things I love, but in 20 years I will be 80, and that's a real number,” he shared.
"[It] doesn't matter how much you work out, what you eat. You're 80. And so I said, 'We have to make sure we enjoy and live these years in the best possible way’,” he added.
The Up In the Air star also commented on the future of the former president of the United States, Donald Trump. He said, “He’s going to be a factor for a while. It’s so funny because he was just this knucklehead. I knew him before he was a president. He was just a guy who was chasing girls.”
“Every time you went out he’d come over and be like, ‘What’s the name of that girl?’” said Clooney. "He's going to play this out for a while, and we'll see where we go with it as a country," he told Marr. "My hope is we have a little better sense than to do that again, my hope."
