Could George Clooney be retiring? It looks like he might keep himself behind the camera more often because he believes that people don’t want to see him age. Okay…..maybe he joked about it to BBC News.
Clooney said, “I think nobody really wants to see anybody really age. It’s a very unforgiving thing, the cameras, and so aging becomes something that you try to do less and less on screen, you know? You try to pick the films that work best for you and as you age, they become less and less.” The 54-year-old continued, “It is my great love, and I do enjoy it a lot. As you age on screen, you get to that point where you really understand that you can’t stay in front of the camera for your whole life. So it’s much more fun to me, and it’s infinitely more creative, to be directing.”
His rep later clarified the comments to Gossip Cop saying that he isn’t actually retiring, he is just concentrating on other endeavors, besides acting right now.
