George Clooney has made a fortune thanks to his ads for Nespresso, which has earned him $ 40 million, or his tequila brand, Casamigos, which sold four years ago for $ 1 billion. But it seems that for the actor not everything goes and ethics is above money. This is how he explains it in an interview with The Guardian, in which it reveals that refused to earn a whopping $ 35 million for a single day’s work.
But what was that occupation and why did Clooney not want to take it despite his huge pay? According to an account in the media, the interpreter had to appear in an advertising spot for an airline that belonged to a country where human rights are not respected: “I was offered $ 35 million for a day’s work for an airline ad, but I spoke to Amal [Clooney, la abogada de derechos humanos con la que se casó en 2014] about it and decided it wasn’t worth it. Was [asociado con] a country that, although it is an ally, is sometimes questionable, so I thought: “Well, if it takes a minute of sleep, it’s not worth it.” “.
On December 22, ‘The Tender Bar’, a film directed by Clooney, opens in the United States. It is a film adaptation of JR Moehringer’s memoirs that chronicle the writer’s teenage years growing up on Long Island. The cast includes Ben Affleck, Tye Sheridan, Lily Rabe, Max Martini, Max Casella, among others.
In addition, the Hollywood icon indicates in the same medium that he is about to move to Australia to join Julia Roberts, Kaitlyn Dever and Billie Lourd in the romantic comedy ‘Ticket To Paradise’, whose filming is already underway. As if that were not enough, next summer he will travel to the United Kingdom to make a film with Brad Pitt. And although Clooney does not reveal what that feature film is, rumors suggest that it could be the next thriller, still untitled, that Jon Watts will direct for Apple TV.
