George Clooney by Kate Randall for BANG Showbiz
George Clooney is Hollywood’s ultimate bachelor. As his friends and co-stars settle down with marriage and babies, the 48-year-old shows no signs of following suit.
Although he has recently found love with Italian model Elisabetta Canalis – who is 17 years his junior – George is happy with the life he’s got and is unwilling to adapt it to become a father.
Here George speaks about his reluctance to settle down, his humorous plans to adopt Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s children, his famous good looks and how he enjoyed his animal-based movies.
YOU’RE ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS BACHELORS, DO YOU FEEL AT 48, MAYBE THE TIME IS RIGHT TO SETTLE DOWN?
That’s a question I’ve never been asked before! I just take each day as it comes. I've had some absolutely great relationships and some not so great relationships.
I've been in some relationships where I've felt terribly alone. Just because you're with someone it doesn't mean you're incredibly happy and complete.
YOUR GOOD FRIEND BRAD PITT HAS SIX CHILDREN WITH ANGELINA JOLIE – DOES SEEING HIM WITH THEM MAKE YOU BROODY?
I am planning to adopt. I am going to adopt some of Brad Pitt's kids. I owe him!
Even one kid running around my villa makes me nervous, so I'm definitely not a candidate for father of the year. If I need to surround myself with children and feel like I have this big extended family, I can always call Brad and Angelina and ask them to stay with me, just to remind myself why I'm so happy!
YOU SEEM VERY HAPPY AT THE MOMENT WITH YOUR CURRENT GIRLFRIEND, BUT HAVE YOU HAD ANY BAD BREAK-UPS IN THE PAST?
I've had some easy and natural, made-sense break-ups as well as some rough ones. I deal with them the same way we all do: I'm successful with some and not so successful with others.
I don't think my experiences are any different than anybody else's. They've just been amplified a little more.
HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT GETTING OLDER – DO YOU WORRY ABOUT LOSING YOU LOOKS?
I'm old. I'm kind of comfortable with getting older because it's better than the other option, which is being dead. So I'll take getting older.
It's an interesting thing to be able to watch yourself grow older on screen. I was watching 'Up in the Air' and I thought, 'Jesus, who's the old, grey-haired guy?' And it was me.
I never wear make-up for movies and now it's starting to show.
YOUR YOUNGER ‘OCEAN’S 11’ CO-STAR MATT DAMON IS HOT ON YOUR HEELS TO OVERTAKE YOU AS HOLLYWOOD’S ULTIMATE HEARTTHROB – HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF HE JOINED YOU AND BRAD AS TWO-TIME WINNER OF SEXIEST MAN ALIVE?
Matt Damon is very competitive with both Brad Pitt and myself. Brad and me are both two-time Sexiest Men Alive. Matt’s only won it that one time and I sort of consider that a bit of a fluke! Having seen him recently he’s got a lot of work to do if he wants to get it back. I’m going to work with him because he’s going to run a strong campaign this year. He was pretty upset with the whole Hugh Jackman thing. But I’m going to train him. We’re going to spend a little time and talk it through.
IN ONE OF YOUR MOVIES, ‘THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS’, YOU OBVISOULY WORKED WITH GOATS – HOW WAS THAT?
I’m now working with goats, we spent a lot of time together. The goat I had to stare out was a great actor – if you told him to do something he would. Now if I only I had got Ewan (McGregor) to take lessons from him and we’d be onto a winner!
But although they were good, I don’t think I want to be working with animals again in the near future!
YOU MENTION EWAN MCGREGOR, DID YOU ENJOY WORKING WITH HIM?
I was shocked at how fun and normal Ewan is. We would talk about his motorcycle trips he takes across the world – he’s a really interesting guy. He’s good to work with as he puts his work first and when that’s done you know you can have some fun. He’s just a great guy. I’m a big fan of his.
IN THE FILM THERE IS QUITE A BIT OF DANCING – DO YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF A GOOD MOVER?
I’m not sure what you would consider a great dancer. I pop-lock like a mother, but this other kind of roll and roll stuff – I have no spine. It just worked out that way. I think that Jeff Bridges is a very good dancer. I haven’t seen Ewan dance, but I think he could be a good dancer.
