George Clooney won’t run for office because he wants to have a “nice life.” The 60-year-old actor and director have been linked with a political career for some time but he insisted it isn’t in his future plans.

George Clooney Wants to Have a “Nice Life”

Asked on The Andrew Marr Show if he’d run for office, he said: “No, because I would actually like to have a nice life.”

But the Tender Bar filmmaker — who has four-year-old twins Ella and Alexander with wife Amal — plans to scale back his work commitments while he is still healthy and can still “play basketball and do the things I love.”

He added: “I turned 60 this year and I had a conversation with my wife and we were working a lot, as we both do, and I said we have to think of these as the halcyon years.”

“In 20 years, I will be 80 and that’s a real number. Doesn’t matter how much you work out, what you eat, you’re 80 and so I said we have to make sure we enjoy and live these years in the best possible way.”

In the aftermath of President Donald Trump leaving office, George insisted the US still needs to do a lot of “healing” and people shouldn’t be concerned about President Joe Biden’s poll numbers dropping.

He said: “It’s like taking a battered child and thinking everything’s going to be okay his first day in school. There’s a lot of things that have to be repaired, there’s a lot of healing that has to happen, and it’s going to take time.”

And while he doesn’t want to run for office himself, the Midnight Sky actor hopes his fellow US citizens have “a little better sense” than to vote Trump back in as president.

He added: “It’s so funny because he was just this knucklehead.”

“I knew him before he was a president. He was just a guy who was chasing girls. Every time you went out he’d be like, ‘What’s the name of that girl?’ That’s all he was.”
