He said the film was supposed to be science fiction, but 'unfortunately is less fictional as we move through the days'
All the while Clooney's Augustine - who may the last man on the planet - is trying to save them by stopping them from getting back.
But Augustine must also look after a little girl called Iris (Caoilinn Springall) who managed to join the evacuation to the Arctic and relies totally on him to stay alive.
“He wasn’t really into protecting himself at all,” Clooney told Vanity Fair.
"The little girl is a problem for him, because now he actually has to take care of someone."

"There wasn't the pandemic, and we hadn't set the whole West Coast on fire," he said.
"I mean, the picture we show of Earth [in the movie] doesn't look that much different than the satellite pictures of the West Coast right now."
He added: "It's science fiction, which unfortunately is less fictional as we move through the days."
The actor also opened up about ageing, and while he's famous for his salt and pepper good looks, Clooney claims he's not looking so good lately.
 “I don’t look so good,” he said.

“I’m not even 60 yet, but the character is 70. Unfortunately, I’m looking closer to that. I’ve always looked a little older, but now I really look like I am.” 
“I just took a shaver and shaved all my hair off, and I tried to do it kind of badly so that it looked patchy," he said of his rugged looks in the film.

"Since he is clearly dying of something that he has to have a transfusion for, which is usually some form of cancer, it was important to me to add some elements so that I didn’t look like I look normally.” 
“I have had a lot of people, the first couple of shots in the movie, not realize it’s me.
"They’re like, ‘That’s you?’ My wife was very happy when I finished shooting this.”
