New York, Feb 24 (IANS) Actor George Clooney has no plans to join politics and says his life is too colourful to have him elected as a politician.
“I didn’t live my life in the right way for politics, you know. I (expletive) too many chicks and did too many drugs, and that’s the truth,” Clooney told Newsweek weekly magazine.
Clooney also said that politicians should just be open about their past indiscretions and then get on with governing, reports people.com.
A savvy political figure “would start from the beginning by saying, ‘I did it all. I drank the bong water. Now let’s talk about issues. That’s gonna be my campaign slogan: ‘I drank the bong water.'”
Clooney adds he would rather focus his star power on raising awareness around certain issues – such as the war in Sudan.
