George Clooney: Oscar Campaign Made Me 'Feel Unclean'

George Clooney makes his way through LAX Airport to catch a departing flight on Monday (July 25) in Los Angeles.

The 50-year-old actor recently told Marie Claire magazine why he was drawn to charity work in Sudan in 2005.

“I had just come out of Oscar season, and you really do campaign, like kissing babies,” he said (via L.A. Times). “By the time it’s over, you sort of feel unclean. You want to do something that makes you feel better.”

“There is more attention on celebrity than ever – and there is a use for that besides selling products,” he added. “We can’t make policy, but we can ‘encourage’ politicians more than ever before.”

FYI: George is wearing Levi’s 501 Jeans.
