Hollywood’s silver fox is speaking out about aging gracefully, saying that men who dye their hair and go under the knife are actually aging themselves.
“I don’t think it really works, I think it actually makes you look older,”; Clooney told BBC presenter Jenni Murray after being asked if he had ever considered cosmetic surgery or dying his hair.
“Clearly I haven’t. For me it’s never been an issue or an option. I don’t think it would make much sense quite honestly,”; he added. “I’m a big believer in the idea that you can’t try to look younger. You just have to look the best you can at the age you are.”
Continuing on, Clooney argues that there’s no point in “trying to fight”; the aging process, suggesting that there are a “couple of options”; neither of which are ideal.
The 54-year-old actor spoke specifically to the hardships with aging in Hollywood, saying “I think for all of us, you have to comes to terms with getting older and not trying to fight it.”;
“You have a couple of options – which is get older or die,” he added. “And so you have to get used to that idea that your roles in films and who you are and how you’re perceived is going to change. That will disappoint people at times.”;
Plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures weren’t the only topics the “Tomorrowland”; actor sounded off on – Clooney also said he was happy Hollywood had started to discuss the issue of equal pay, saying “it was probably the only good thing that came out of the Sony hack.”;
“The only good thing that has come out of it is the conversation in very liberal Hollywood that women aren’t being paid the same,”; he continued. “I think there are 15 female directors in town. I think it’s a very good conversation they’re starting to have.”;
George also spoke out about whether he thinks of his own relationship as a “power couple,”; mirroring what he told Sangita Patel during their recent junket sit down.
“I think we’re just a couple with great interest in the human condition,”; he said. “I don’t think of it as particularly powerful, I just think of it as our responsibility as people on the planet.”;
