George Clooney talks about fame

This story is also from the British Esquire magazine interview:

George Clooney Just Wants To Walk In Central Park, You Guys

December 4, 2013

Didn’t he already do that shit in One Fine Day?

George Clooney has a movie to promote (The Monuments Men aka You mean the story Grandpa Simpson told Bart about the Fighting Hellfish, right?) so he’s bouncing from magazine cover to magazine cover, and this time we’re talking about Esquire UK. Clooney appears in the January 2014 issue, sans-migraine suit, and talks to editor Alex Bilmes about his love of mennonite quilts, his passion for home-made kombucha, and what’s on his Netflix queue (Say Yes To The Dress). KIDDING – according to The Daily Mail, he talks about the GCU (George Clooney Usual) ie. his love life, being famous, and the ho you’ll NEVER see him bring to the Academy Awards, Twitter:

Despite the actor’s rise to global superstardom, he says being famous is restrictive. In 15 years Clooney has not gone for a walk in New York’s Central Park, despite wanting to, and is still surprised by his success.

“There’s a funny thing about fame. The truth is you run as fast as you can towards it because it is everything you want. You get there and it’s shocking how immediately you become enveloped in this world that is incredibly restricting.”

On being a celebrity, he says: “Not that I’m comparing myself to Clark Gable or whoever but they couldn’t survive in this environment. They’d punch the shit out of some people. It requires a kind of Zen quality.”

The Gravity star also shares his views on social media, saying: “I think anyone who is famous is a moron if they’re on Twitter. It’s just stupid.”
At least this time he learned that it’s on Twitter, not in Twitter.

Who knew George Clooney got the boo-hoo-sads over fame? He’s basically Britney Spear’s Lucky. I guess Georgie C spends his nights at home, laying on the bathroom floor in the fetal position, draped in a fur-trimmed dressing gown wailing “I’D TRADE IT ALL JUST TO WALK IN CENTRAL PARK!” Newsflash George: You can take a walk in Central Park anytime you want. You have enough money to close the park for the day and hunt humans for sport around the lake, you dummy. I’m sure if you asked nicely, they’d let you BBQ a penguin from the Zoo. Stop complaining.

You’ve got to give George credit though; I’ve got the hilarious mental image of Clark Gable punching a pap in the face, so for that I’ll give him the ol’ Namaste prayer-hands.

Oh that comment was funny. I nearly spit my tea.

But I understand what he is trying to say. Fame can isolate people and stop them from living a normal life as everyone is after them. Or they think everyone is after them. But I also think if George dresses normal with a baseball cap and walk through central park I don't think people will recognise him. Would be different if you are Michael Jackson LOL. But then again I'm not in his shoes. So I'm guessing here.

Long time ago he comment on that fame thing as well. He said he would like to go to a bar with people the way he did before he got famous. But don't remember which interview that was.

The only one restricting George is George. If you really want to do something you can do it, you just have to be creative.

But I do understand his point. He's saying he wants to walk in Central Park and not worry about people coming up to him asking for his autograph or asking to take pictures with them. He's talking about just taking an anonymous walk which many of us get to do every day without having someone else coming at us and expecting us to be "ON" for them.

Could you imagine if he did go to a public place and refused to smile for the picture or not give the autograph? He'd immediately be blasted for being a self-centered asshole.

If he really did say that then I'm quite sure his close friends already know
 of his views about social media.
I'd imagine the subject has been discussed at length many times during their convivial  social occasions together.....over bottles of Casamigos.

lol!

I love you Love2

Now I'm picturing butterfly trying to run down a path in Central Park dragging a crazy-eyed woman who is hanging on to her leg, teeth embedded in her calf, as George looks on in horror. (Of course it all happened so fast George didn't have time to react!)

Fame is man given and could get tiring first achieve it and then trying to hide from it...Juggling like eating a cake and saving it sort of dilemma...

not very original this morning, me, sory Smile
