George didn't do an interview with The Sun - this is taken from the BFI screen talk he did on Sunday, which obviously The Sun got hold of in advance and ran as an exclusive interview.

George Clooney reveals two roles that almost ended his Hollywood career George-Clooney-696x456

George Clooney is undoubtedly one of Hollywood’s finest stars ever since 1978.


However, one part of an iconic movie and a TV role almost ruined the entire career of George Clooney.
In a recent interview with The Sun, the 59-year-old hunk revealed people refused to star alongside him after being on the “disastrous” 1997 Batman & Robin film.

He also shared that the film industry looked down on him because he worked on the TV drama ER.

His career transition from TV to Film



But it was only in 1998 when he landed the crime comedy film Out of Sight with director Steven Soderbergh when his luck changed.

“Steven was coming off a couple of flops, and I was coming off Batman & Robin, and we both needed a success,” Clooney said, speaking from his LA home.
“Our backs were against the wall, in a way.”
At that time, it was taboo for actors to jump from TV to film.
“It was a big deal, and I was losing that argument,” the Ocean’s Eleven star said.

However, after Batman & Robin, Clooney realized that he would be held responsible for the movie and not just because of the performance.
So when there was a chance to be part of the movie Out of Sight, the star revealed he chased down Soderbergh to direct the film.
The film already had a director attached. But when he landed the role, the original director had to drop out because he believes Clooney “wasn’t a movie actor.”
In the end, it all worked out for him and Soderbergh.

“Steven directed the hell out of that movie – he did a beautiful job with it,” Clooney said.


Before the fame



George Clooney admitted to being grateful for any role he landed.
He was born in Kentucky to an anchorman and TV host dad and a beauty queen mom.
Before becoming an actor, Clooney cut tobacco for a living.
He made $3.33 an hour. But after all of it, he realized that he didn’t want to be a tobacco cutter all of his life.
Clooney revealed to have struggled as an actor for about 15 years.
“Any job you got, it was, ‘Thank you, thank you, thank you.’”
He didn’t even think about the jerks and divas he worked with.
“’I got a job. I’m getting paid and paying the rent. I’m thrilled to be here. I’m lucky,’” the From Dusk Til Dawn actor would always tell himself.
All his hard work had paid off. George Clooney now has a net worth of $500 million.
Besides acting, he is now a screenwriter, a director, a producer.
He has been a recipient of many awards, such as the AFI Life Achievement Award, several Oscars and Golden Globes awards.
George Clooney is happily married to lawyer Amal Clooney.

Anyone else wondering why they're claiming he's "undoubtedly one of Hollywood’s finest stars ever since 1978". Why 1978? He didn't become famous until the 90s.

I do also love how they say he's happily married to Amal - contrary to almost every other article they've ever written about him!
