George Clooney is planning to retire

Feb 11 2014, 5:20pm CST | by

George Clooney thinks he's getting too old for acting.

The 52-year-old star has hinted he is thinking about retiring from the big screen in the near future to focus on his work as a producer and director.

'The Monuments Men' actor, who also wrote and directed the film, told BANG Showbiz at the movie's UK premiere at the Odeon in London's Leicester Square on Tuesday night (02.11.14): "The audience kind of tells you when it's time to get out from in front of the camera, and it's getting close I think."

But George insisted he is still very passionate about his career.

He said: "Every time you can make a movie to tell a story that people don't know, it's good."

The Oscar-winning actor also joked about how difficult it was to work with his co-star Matt Damon, who also attended the red carpet screening, on the movie, which is based on the true story of a team of soldiers who recovered millions of pieces of artwork stolen by the Nazis in WWII.

He said: "It was hard to get him out of his trailer sometimes. I don't like to use the word diva and throw it around loosely, but you know."

But George admitted he loves working with close friends and they inspired the characters.

Asked about securing the star-studded cast, he said: "Most of these guys are friends of mine so that made it easier, but we wrote the parts for most of them."

Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin and Hugh Bonneville were among the other stars to attend the premiere.

Meet Tala Alamuddin, George Clooney’s Pippa-esque future sister-in-law

Aug 19 2014 6:15am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Meet Amal Alamuddin’s sister, Tala Alamuddin. Tala was photographed several times over the past few days in London, which is where she calls home (apparently) just like her sister. Tala is Amal’s only sister, and they have two half-brothers, Samer and Ziad. I can see the physical resemblance between the two sisters and personally, I think they have the same cheesy kind of street style. LOOK AT HER BAG. Look at her shoes!! Anyway, ...

The Most Surprising Celebrity Sex Confessions

When it comes to talking about getting down, some stars are a little more candid than others - we're looking at you, Armie Hammer - which is why it can be pretty shocking when otherwise private celebs like Beyoncé, George Clooney, or Gwyneth Paltrow open up about their sex lives. Recently, Russell Brand spoke out about his sex life with ex-wife Katy Perry during a stand-up gig, saying, "I ...

Thanks For Playing: The 8 Most Epic Game Show Struggles Of All Time

Aug 14 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Scandalist

At one time or another, we’ve all shrieked at the TV when some bozo blows an easy question on a game show. Once indoor voices are resumed, we’re tempted to feel tremendous sympathy for these poor souls. It’s only natural to assume that intense pressure brought on by crowds, cameras, and cash has caused them to become a bundle of nerves and choke, right? Wrong. I personally have been one of the aforementioned bozos, and that definitely wasn’t the way it went do ...

Amal Alamuddin will not take part in a UN observation team being sent to Gaza

Aug 12 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I’ve been reticent to cover anything regarding the confluence of Hollywood and the Israel/Palestine conflict. Part of it is that I genuinely don’t like wading too far into the politics of Israel and part of it is that nothing is going to be solved by everybody yelling at each other on a blog. I did read an interesting piece in THR a few weeks ago, about a new generation of Hollywood actors and celebrities who are more willing to question Israel’s policies, regardless of any backlash – it’s ...
