George Clooney quotes

I don’t believe in heaven and hell. I don’t know if I believe in God. All I know is that as an individual, I won’t allow this life–the only thing I know to exist–to be wasted.

I'm not smart enough and I don't know enough about what's going on.

I love children and I get along with them great. It's just that I believe if you're going to be a parent, there has to be something inside you that says, 'I want a family.' I don't feel that sense of urgency.

It's incredibly unfair. You don't see a lot of 60-year-old women with 20-year-old men onscreen.

Directing is really exciting. In the end, it's more fun to be the painter than the paint.

I have a real interest in pushing some of the limits of things that studios don't want to make.

When you first start out, you are just happy to get a job, any job. And as time goes on, either you move forward or screech to a halt.

Directors are the captains of the ship, and it's your job as the lead actor to make sure that the rest of the cast understand that by doing whatever he says.

I like owning dirt. You know, I spent a lot of time broke when I moved to California. So deep in my soul is still this idea of being unemployed. To me, owning land means you could sell it at some point and have money.

I've certainly done some turkeys along the way and made some dumb choices in my career, mostly early on. I'm one of the lucky ones who got to make a lot of mistakes very early when no one was paying attention.

If people see me having dinner with a beautiful woman, they immediately believe that I'm having a love affair with her. Of course that's rubbish. I'm not a playboy!

My father was and is a great journalist. Thirty years ago, I was studying broadcasting in college, and the problem was I wasn't nearly as good as my father. I wasn't as quick or as smart as my old man, and I realized it would be a long time before I was ever going to be, and I decided to do something else.

The loneliest you will get is in the most public of arenas: You will go to a place and end up in the smallest compartment possible, because it's a distraction to everybody, and you end up not getting to enjoy it like everyone else.

But 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.

I'm the flavor of the month.

I don't like to share my personal life... it wouldn't be personal if I shared it.

Run for office? No. I've slept with too many women, I've done too many drugs, and I've been to too many parties.

It's not about an opening weekend. It's about a career, building a set of films you're proud of. Period.

The only failure is not to try.

You get better as an actor over time if you're growing. Like singers.
