Why does George Clooney want to quit acting? Because he loves directing, as he’s told me several times. And because he doesn’t want to look old on camera.
Clooney made headlines this week when media outlets picked up his Tuesday interview promoting “Hail Caesar!” at the BBC in London.
“It a very unforgiving thing with cameras, so aging is something you try to do less and less of on the screen. You try to pick the films that work best for you as you age,” said Clooney, who turns 55 on May 6.
