George broods on the cover of Esquire UK.
“Gravity” star George Clooney covers the December 2013 issue of Esquire UK magazine photographed by Phil Poynter.
“If you’re famous, I don’t—for the life of me—I don’t understand why any famous person would ever be on Twitter. Why on God’s green earth would you be on Twitter? Because first of all, the worst thing you can do is make yourself more available, right? Because you’re going to be available to everybody. But also Twitter. So one drunken night, you come home and you’ve had two too many drinks and you’re watching TV and somebody pisses you off, and you go ‘Ehhhhh’ and fight back. And you go to sleep, and you wake up in the morning and your career is over. Or you’re an asshole. Or all the things you might think in the quiet of your drunken evening are suddenly blasted around the entire world before you wake up.”
We think we’re going to love cranky, middle-aged, “I don’t give a shit, I’m gonna say it” George. He’s gonna be fun.
Inside, he twinkles:
