And we're so glad he did not follow through!
In his revealing Rolling Stone interview, George Clooney proved that all the money and success in the world sometimes isn't enough to keep suicidal thoughts at bay.
The actor was left in extreme pain after suffering a spinal injury when a stunt went wrong while filming Syrianna in 2005. Severe headaches and spinal fluid leaks through his nose were so unbearable that he couldn't help but consider ending it all, explaining:
"I was at a point where I thought, 'I can't exist like this. I can't actually live.' I was lying in a hospital bed with an IV in my arm, unable to move, having these headaches where it feels like you're having a stroke, and for a short three-week period, I started to think, 'I may have to do something drastic about this'…but I never thought I'd get there."
Thankfully, he never did "get there" and has since undergone surgery to help him with the spinal problems.
We love ya Georgie, so don't ever leave us! You have MUCH more to contribute to the entertainment industry!
