Looks like your future presidential campaign is safe for now, Kanye West!
While fans and moviegoers have wondered for years, it doesn’t appear George Clooney is interested even in the slightest in going into politics at any point in his life!
Speaking at a press conference for Our Brand Is In Crisis on Friday afternoon in El Lay, Clooney went right in when the question of whether he’d run for political office came up:
“I’ve been asked that for almost 20 years now and the answer is just no. Who would ever want to live like that? I’m friends with a lot of those guys and I just think it’s hell.”
The actor, who is producing Our Brand, a political dramedy, has respect for those in political office… he just has literally no interest himself in jumping into that fray:
“I commend people who go into public service because it’s such a horrible way to get elected, it’s such a horrible time while you’re in office. It’s more polarized now probably, arguably, since the Civil War in many ways and I think people will argue over things they believed in six or eight years ago because it’s not their guy saying it.”
George, tell us how you really feel! LOLz!!
Now that his hat is — and forever will be, in all likelihood — out of the ring, there’s only one question remaining: does Yeezy really know what celebrities like him are getting into with political campaigns?!
