There are some things that money can’t buy. But I cannot imagine what it’d possibly take for me to turn down $35 million.
But also, I’m not George Clooney.
The Oscar-winning has revealed that he once turned down $35M for a day’s work.
“I was offered $35M for one day’s work for an airline commercial, but I talked to Amal [Clooney, the human rights lawyer he married in 2014] about it and we decided it’s not worth it. It was [associated with] a country that, although it’s an ally, is questionable at times, and so I thought: ‘Well, if it takes a minute’s sleep away from me, it’s not worth it.’”
Clooney also explained why he’s slowed down acting too:
“In general, there just aren’t that many great parts – and, look, I don’t have to act. My wife and I had this conversation when I turned 60 this summer. I said: ‘I can still bounce around pretty good, and we both love what we do. But we gotta make sure we don’t book ourselves silly.’ So, part of it is just us making sure we live our lives.”
Must be tough being George Clooney.
