George's interview about IOM & The Descendants

An actor out father
By Frank Rousseau

The steps in power, he wants to be President of the United States, and The Descendants, he has two daughters with whom he has trouble making contact. But all this is fiction. George Clooney does not want to enter politics and refuses to have children!

Elisabetta Canalis and him, that's it! Yet the single most coveted in the world is not free either. But do not count on George Clooney to spill on his relationship with Stacy Keibler, a wrestler. "She would not appreciate that I speak of our privacy. She is like me, very secretive about this kind of subject. And I do not want it sent me to the carpet for failing to comply with our deal, "says the actor, laughing. Of the two features that make it news, markets power (from 26 October) and The Descendants (coming out in early November in the U.S. with us and in January) and the rest, however, he is prolific .

You do not just play in "The steps of power", but are also the director. When does Clooney the actor he wanted to get behind the camera?
The achievement is something that tickled me since the age of 5 years. From the time my baby-sitter named WKRC, a local channel on which my father hosted a game show, like my parents could not afford to pay someone to keep me, my father left me squarely in technicians legs! I was hanging a lot on the set and I knew all the tricks of the show, the smell of the stage, behind the scenes, the lighting. The job came back like that. By opening your eyes and ears ...

In this film, you play as Mike Morris, an idealistic and ambitious governor campaigned to become President of the United States. You who are very involved in environmental and humanitarian Have you ever considered, if only a fraction of a second, run for office in the White House?
No! Politics is a profession that does not just happen! My actions, my actions are personal. I do not represent a nation. Let alone a party. My only ambition is to make myself useful, to use my fame to get certain messages. The laurels, consideration, recognition, I leave it to others! And even ... Who would want a guy like me? I smoked pot when I was younger, my longest love affair was one I had with Max, a pig, and I have a big penchant for tequila! Admit that with all the pots to my buttocks, I would have no chance!

Other players have made the same speech yet have reconsidered the question ...
I am ready to certify in writing. (Laughter.) The policies, in my view, are people who drive more for themselves than for the people!

And Obama, what do you think of him?
I love this guy! It's a hard worker. I can assure you that it made every effort to bring the country out of the mess it is up to his neck!

Power, in political, can also make them believe they are above the laws, manners. A comment on the case DSK?
I understand that he had admitted to having "inappropriate relations". Between you and me, I find most silly! How a guy so smart, a man who could have become president he could be misled in such a story? In any case, it would make a nice movie!

In "The Descendants", you play a father who, following the tragic accident suffered by his wife, tries to reconnect with his daughters. There are a lot of emotion, suffering, but also humor. You who have no children, how have you slipped into this role?
An actor is someone who has the ability to invest different body wraps. Some colleagues are known to do extensive research before playing a role, and sometimes they even place themselves under the same conditions before a character to embody. I do not work like that. If tomorrow, I proposed to play a heroin addict, do not expect me to shoot! (Laughter.) The same goes for a serial killer, I would not knock out my family history to be "credible" on the screen. In fact, when I play the father pushed by events, I appeal to my imagination. I try above all to understand how I would react if I had to face the same tragedy. The rest is an improviser!

Do you think you would make a good dad?
My synapses were never incorporated this possibility! It's like if you asked me how I would react in the presence of an alien. But hey, let ... If I had children, my first instinct would be to make every effort so they do not Facebook, Twitter, or worse, a mobile phone on which they constantly send SMS. This ensures that these tools are used to communicate, but I do not agree, I think, on the contrary, they are to be locked in isolation. When I see a teenager in his corner, frantically tapping on the keyboard of a smartphone, I have only one desire: to see him and invite him to ride a bike, basketball, short, to spend and get rid of these "straitjackets" technology!

But are you comfortable with the children?
I think I'm some kind of Uncle fufu in their presence. On the set of The Descendants, I was the one who made jokes repeatedly. Saying to the two young actresses who play my daughters to have fun doing all the crap they went through my head! I remember in particular Amara Miller, who had never played before. She had to shoot a scene in which she was seen eating ice, and I did not think to tell him that it was not always swallow! So, after the fifteenth taken, she complained of stomach ache, vomited and began to cry. I was not proud of myself ....

What are the chances that you change your mind about procreation?
Cause other small Clooney is not the program and never will be!

Now imagine that you have children in your opinion, would they rather cerebral or physical?
How do you want me to answer that? (Laughter.) I do not know damn thing! I guess they would, like me, a club foot, eight fingers on each hand and graying hair at birth!

And you, what kid were you?
My parents always pushed me to defend my beliefs! I grew up in Kentucky and in the early 60's, I heard many speeches or racist comments against the African American community. It was unbearable. So, I came home with black eyes. I was not very hard fighting, but when it came to fighting injustice, I had no language in my pocket.

Your father he always looked with admiration, and it happened to doubt your abilities?
My parents were very disappointed that I left college before graduating. Especially when I told them it was to try my luck in Hollywood. In fact, I kept my father's letters, written some eight or nine years (note: so after the box of "Ocean's Eleven"), and in which he asked me - AGAIN! - Find me a real job! (Laughter.)

Did you know that Hugh Jackman will engage in fair trade coffee, with all proceeds going to a humanitarian cause? And you, if you were to launch a product in your name, what would it be?
I drink lots of coffee, but I eat the most is the tequila. So for that matter, I would drink the tequila in a charitable!

Not driving one of your Harley, anyway?
Imagine that in August, I went for a ride from my house on Lake Como, and that, in Chamonix, I discovered the wormwood liqueur! Waooouh! What return on the palate!

Are you the opportunity to attempt to climb Mount Blanc?
After tasting the local specialties, I was no longer able to ride my Harley ... then the Mont Blanc, you do not think!

Interesting interview. Which publication is it from? Can you post the original French (? Italian?) too? I'm trying to puzzle out the first couple of quotes from George.

Thanks!

Maybe a native french speaker could help me out with this sentence

Hi Saddonkey,
I would translate like that:
" I don't want her to kick my ass for not sticking with the deal( or arrangement)"
But I can't find the real term in english for respecter, i don't know if you say respect a deal in english.

"M'envoyer au tapis" is slang for kicking someone's ass

Thank you very much Lula-Mae
I had troubles to understand "qu’elle m’envoie".
But now I know what he meant.
to respect a deal makes sense, but I don´t know either if it is a real term. Thanks again Give Flowers2

I don't want she throws me down (or knocks me out) to not having respected our deal.

These quotes are so subject to translation. #1, he makes his statements in English. #2, reporter translates them into French(in this case). #3, google translator or bing translator, translates them into English again. SOOOO, that being the case, who knows what he actually did say! It's sort of like the American game of Telephone. Whisper something in someone's ear, that person whispers into the next person in line's ear, and so on down the line. Last one in line says what they heard outloud and it usually nowhere near what the first person said. Shocked

Well, it kind of sounds like his confirmation on what link of deal he has going with her. We know that its no secret that he is a private person when not talking about his ladies. So he didn't have to confirm that part. but he mentions their "deal". Now I find that aspect very interesting. It sounds like the kiss of death to a relationship, no? But in a very slight and quiet way. He seems to be saying that their deal keeps her quiet, so he doesn't quite give the details of their deal away, that may embarrass her and she might flip flop him to the mat and kick his butt! I am always reading in between the lines. Laughing
