His movie has been shot down in flames... so, now Georgie isn't going to act as much. Translation: he's taking his ball and going home.

George Clooney isn’t in a rush to take on a new film role anytime soon.
The 56-year-old actor told The Sunday Times Hollywood isn’t a priority for him anymore. “Look, I acted for a long time and, you know, I’m 56,” explained Clooney. “I’m not the guy that gets the girl anymore. I shouldn’t be the guy that gets the girl.”

However, there’s a more obvious reason why the father of 5-month-old twins has chosen to take a step back from acting.
“[But], look, if somebody’s got Paul Newman in ‘The Verdict,’ I’d jump,” he said. “But there aren’t that many like that. Acting used to be how I paid the rent, but I sold a tequila company for a billion f-----g dollars. I don’t need money.”
Back in June, Clooney confirmed that he and his business partners – nightlife businessman Rande Gerber and real estate mogul Mike Meldeman – sold their tequila company Casamigos for $1 billion.
“I have money,” said Clooney. “So I can fight to make movies I want to make. If you look at what I’ve been in over the past 15 years, for the most part they weren’t going to get made if I didn’t do them. Nobody was going to make ‘Good Night, and Good Luck,’ ‘Michael Clayton’ or ‘Up in the Air,’ and I fought to get those out there.”
Clooney admitted the current political climate has inspired him to possibly pursue politics. However, the Hollywood star stressed he’s not ready to tackle that role.
“So many people since Trump was elected have really been pushing on me to get more involved in actual politics, specifically at the highest office,” he explained. “I don’t have political aspirations.”
He added, “I have always been involved in politics. My father ran for Congress. It’s been in our family forever. But, mostly, I can help in ways I actually know very well, like messaging [voters].”

This isn't a new story tho is it? Seems like bits of other interviews cobbled together with a couple of extra sentences to me.....

For me it also sounds like a summary of quotes George has made before. When I googled George's name during the last days, some headlines said he would retire. Others just said he doesn't act anymore because he doesn't need the money since he sold Casamigos - without a context. So it all seems to be based on this article...
I tried to read the original article on The Sunday Times Hollywood but failed since you have to register and they didn't accept my German email-address.

Agree that many of George’s comments from ‘The Sunday Times’  are restatements or similar versions of what he has been saying for a while. If you look at what is available from The Sunday Times article (just a paragraph) the actual article begins by saying the interview was done in late August. So George’s comments were made prior to the bad reviews of his movie.

Possibly more Clooney than George himself
