George Clooney Really Opens Up About Drugs, Insomnia, And Loneliness

Clooney Talks Life

Let us be clear: we love George Clooney for many reasons.

He's handsome, he's charming, she's smart.

He's also very candid and not too shy about serious personal issues. Like drinking too much, and trying cocaine:

"I drink at times too much. I do enjoy drinking, and there have been times in my life when it's crossed the line from being fun to having to drink late at night for absolutely no reason. So what I do is, I stop. I didn't have an issue with it. I'm not a big druggie, not at all. Blow is absolutely a nonstarter."

George also has trouble sleeping at night:

"Turning off the television causes me to think, and once I start that vision roaring, I have a very tough time getting to sleep. I'm able to numb out. Without question, I wake every night five times."

And he can get lonely, just like the rest of us:

"Anyone would be lying if they said they didn't get lonely at times. The loneliest you will get is in the most public of arenas: you will go to a place and end up in the smallest compartment possible, because it's a distraction to everybody, and you end up not getting to enjoy it like everyone else. I have been infinitely more alone in a bad relationship; there's nothing more isolating. I have been in places in my life where that has existed."

Dare we say that him opening up like this makes us like him even more??

Is that even legal??

Ha!

If you need someone to talk to late at night, George, we're here!

    Must be difficult, being in the closet and all …….

    One of the reasons I find George Clooney so attractive are those lines on his face. You hardly see faces like that on celebs anymore. I hope that his persona is really the way he is, but who knows. A girl can dream …

    Coward! If he had any courage at all he would have dared to marry and be an adult and have children. He's a perpetual adolescent, what an empty life he must have!
