George Clooney Talks Turning 50 With 'Parade'

George Clooney Talks Turning 50 With 'Parade'

George Clooney takes the cover of this weekend’s issue of Parade.

Here’s what the 50-year-old Ides of March star had to share with the mag:

On maintaining a private life: “I don’t tweet, I don’t go on Facebook. I think there’s too much information about all of us out there. I’m liking the idea of privacy more and more. There will be funny things, like I’ll read something I’ve said about a woman somewhere. And I haven’t spoken about my relationships in 15 years.”

On turning the big 5-0: “I look at myself on-screen and go, ‘I don’t look like I did when I was 40 – I know that.’ The people I’ve respected most in the industry over the years – Paul Newman, for instance, I just loved the way he handled growing old on-screen … By the time you get a subscription to AARP, which I just got, you have some idea of who your friends are, at least. [Getting the AARP subscription] shocked me – ‘Are you kidding?’ [laughs] I told them they should do ‘The Sexiest Man Still Alive.’”

    A very interesting interview. Will have to pick up the Sunday paper to read the full thing.

  • Truth

    He needs to grow up and stop acting like a 30-yr-old playboy.

    The sad part about this is that it’s women who run tabloid magazines and swoon over this Cary Grant wannabe that have boosted turned him into this egotistical monster. They need to call him what he is..a emotional midget.

    He doesn’t have to talk about his personal life in public, because his token girlfriends do all the talking. His personal life is a joke.

    Hey, George. You’re old. Start acting your age.

    Elisabetta Canalis did right to move over George he’s an eternal Peter Pan! The man with whom she is daiting is much younger and I’m sure more responsible!
    happy to find on the web pics of her kissing an other man!

    @jo: Will you stupid publicity hos please shut it already? Coke.whore wasn’t dating Clooney, she was a publicity escort, and she’s not dating her dance instructor, and she’s not dating Joaquin, but more importantly, NO ONE CARES. Go post your nonsense on one of the blogs you’ve bought off.

  • niagirl

    Oh so he doesn’t like twitter or facebook, but I recall that his present girlfriend tweeted that she and George were together and that he had invited her too Italy. FOS Mr. Clooney.

  • Yo-Landi

    LMAO “the sexiest man STILL alive” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH I don’t like him at all and never saw the sex appeal and hype (he’s not attractive at all to me, won’t even think about “sexy”!) but that was funny XD

  • http://a.com ka simply amazing

    what is that?. throw out this old frog

  • observer

    @niagirl: Keibler is PRETENDING to date Clooney. She’s not actually dating him. At the Toronto Film Festival, she wasn’t allowed to walk next to him on any red carpets, sit next to him inside theatres, or ride in the same cars with him. Clooney never even looked at her and kept trying to avoid her. She followed him into and out of parties to try to make it look like they were together. Even in the photos most likely to make it appear they are together, it’s obvious they aren’t together. Doesn’t Keibler realize how desperate these publicity stunts make her look, and how dishonest it will become apparent to everyone she is once she can no longer pretend to be dating Clooney? The idiotic media including People magazine just keep printing her publicist’s ridiculous press releases as though they are fact.

  • Observer why would George need a pretend girlfriend? is he gay?

  • william

    ohh george clooney u r a good guy why don’t u take deep breath and think of better things to say !!!
    forget about the sexiest man alive title it is not the actual thing makes u sexy what makes u sexy that u r and many people see that .
    try to enjoy the beauty of ur age u can u still be young if u can speak with a wake mind and u can stop the games .wish u god luck my friend.

  • typecast-u

    People who have met Clooney will tell you…he is charming and very respectful ..so it funny to me what YOU people THINK you know about him.

    Shouldn’t you just be concerned about his movies?

    Believing he should get married…when he was already married, engaged ..whatver..he can do what he damn well pleases…and apparently he does …which is what I like about him…AND he scores even more points NOT facebooking or tweeting.

  • terre’

    Omg he gave me inspiration that being 50 can still be cool and not all of us that have just turned 50 have to feel like we r old…especially if we look young for are age and r still hautt’… just alittle more laid back…but not laid up “lol”…thanks George…for making me feel warm n fuzzy again. : )-….. Terre’….from the river city with tall chief….Kansas !!!!

  • Okay?

    Yes turning fifty is awesome. It is a turning of a new chapter, however I see a contradiction with George. He speaks with wisdom, but yet he is squiring around bimbos, and dippy women young enough to be his daughter.

    It just a contradiction of sorts. Unfortunately it looks like a woman closer to his age, he is not equipped to handle. Stacy tries so hard to seem intellectual and heady, but like all the others she misses the mark.

    This aspect of George’s life makes him look pathetic and trying to prove he still got it. There is no need for this at this point in anyone’s life.. Oh well! No one is perfect are they?

  • Quid Pro Quo

    @Okay?: I think he’s incapable of genuinely loving a woman.
    Maybe he’s romantic, but I believe he won’t allow himself that level intense emotion. A defense mechanism of an insecure man?

    Not because of a mid-life crisis. But fear that this is how he’ll be perceived by the general public. He enjoys his public image.

    Maybe one day he’ll find a lady with whom he’ll fall in love.
    But that hasn’t happened yet, so he just accepts these temporary liaisons that he requests his management arrange. None are deemed beautiful women; all desperately sell a “sex” image.

    But this is his choice.
    No one if forcing him.

  • Quid Pro Quo

    Or just simply:
    He’s never fallen in love.
    Maybe just short-term infatuation that fades after a while.
    Not everyone genuinely falls in love, nor finds a “soulmate”/ ” other half” in a lifetime. It’s rare & doesn’t happen more than once, if ever.

    Perhaps one day he will.

  • BILLY BOB

    So his PR team comprising of elderly (former Z-list TV actress/ eternal yo you dieter) KIRSTIE ALLEY who advises Stan Rosenfield are force feeding Clooney with hookers again. More fake relationships.
    $
    Now they’re trying to keep him entrapped for 2 years with Stacy Kyborg. Another dispensable, unattractive cheap woman. Btw, the latest “art” naked photos are heavily photoshopped. She’s struggles with cellulite, but that’s normal.

    Clooney is too spineless & insecure to act otherwise. It’s a shame how A-list actors are delegated how to live their lives for the sake of profit.
    $
    Even posthumously they generate a fortune for the recipients of their deceased estate.
    Clooney is forced to live this lie by those who have invested in him. He can stand up to them but they’re confrontational.
    $
    Kirstie ‘Fat Blob’ Alley is a “silent” advisor but very manipulative.
    She enjoys belittling Clooney. She harbors issues stemming back to the years that she was forced to be Parker Stevenson’s beard wife, adopted kids included. When she was exploited by Hollywood.
    Her career never made a huge impact.
    But her greed enabled her to do whatever to get ahead.

    Aah… she came a long way from her impoverished roots in Kansas. Her worse nightmare.. Dorothy followed the yellow brick road all the way to Tinseltown..

    Rumor has it that Kirstie Alley posts as Cinderella on ClooneysOpenHouse blog. A small, gossip forum run by Clooney’s publicity team. It only has 300 or so members, so totally SMALL FRY..LOL

    And also, Kirstie Alley posts as PreferToRemainAnonymous on the imdB message board for George Clooney.

    Industry leak that came out recently.
    Has to do with her self-imposed exile when she weighed 300lbs and couldn’t do much.

    Ewwwwwww….. gross elderly woman that she is. Imagine all that loose saggy residual flesh hanging off her. Naked??? YIIIIKESSSSS!!!

    wooops! system glitch. triple posts…

    Yeah, Kirstie Alley TOTALLY is belittling Clooney with the Keibler arrangement.

    Even released an story on how he wouldn’t show any “affection” on the red carpet at the TiFF.

    It’s unfortunate that she enjoys degrading him like that. She’s probably inflicted with Mad Cow’s disease.
    Wretched horror of a freak show!
    ….
    But by the same token, Clooney is going along with it. I’m not sure if it’s by choice or coercion. I’d say that he agrees to it.
    ….
    Hopefully one day he’ll meet some woman that moves him enough to have a real relationship. Right now, it looks SO fake. And Stan&Kirstie will keep the status quo like that as long as they can. That’s why the gay rumors abound. Yet, he’s not gay nor bi.
    ….
    They really have entrapped him.

  • Whipped Honey

    @King Cobra: Not sure if Kirstie Alley is Cinderella on Clooneysopenhouse. I was tipped in a pm on imdB that she’s actually SadDonkey. Just monitors the photos. But maybe she’s both….:-)
    Definitely she’s PreferToRemainAnonymous.
    That’s common knowledge amongst Stan’s PR staff.
    The ones on Clooneysopenhouse have several sockpuppets each. No way are there 307 registered. It’s multiple sockpuppets of same staff.
    What a waste of money as hardly anyone accesses it.
    Each “gnome” is advised which opinion to promote. And then they post to each other.
    I’ve seen Cindy. Long blonde hair, very petite, 4ft11 maybe. Mature. Quite dishy in her hey day.
    Clooney is a buffoon and easy canonfodder for any b*itch to manipulate.

  • Spinal Tap: Lick My Love Pump

    @ whoever….
    And already on Celebitchy, they’re harping about Keibler being his next 2 year girlfriend. “THEY” being regular PR reps going by LucyOriginal & Aqua..
    Grooming Keibler in elocution, deportment…
    Scrubbing her into a “lady” from her 10 sordid years as a wrestler. The usual MO. Hard, masculine, unattractive women. Bimbos with little hope for success. And Clooney the Good Samaritan, Patron Saint of Hookers, rescues them.
    In exchange for PR, tabloid profits, … and his sobriety.
    But he has nothing to lose. No love life.
    Just work.

    Of course Clooney accepted this script.

    @Whipped Honey and fellow team members- I now know you are George and his clown pranksters. GROW UP WILL YOU???PETTY WARMONGERS YOU HAVE BECOME GEORGE AND GANG.

    PrefertoRemainAnonymous is so far from Kirstie Alley. You are pissed at her so to try to discredit her you are trying to say she is Kirstie. You sare pissed that she told information that really gave other people a alternate look from what was being sold.

    Not her problem that you up to your eyeballs with Mafia and porn industry ties. People are smart and can see through your nonsense. Also too the name Whipped Honey is a sordid clue that leads to George’s love for kinky and rough sex. Thanks for showing yourselves as the ones that are the guilty party. Party on! The only industry leak is going on is STAN ROSENFIELD trying a new tactic to fight what he sees is spilling of more Clooney’s plans and secrets.

    It is time for all false illusions, deceptions, and masks to come off. So Stan, George, and company you have dug your own grave, now lie in it!

    @Spinal Tap- No I am not Kirstie or Prefer. It is obvious about Whipped. It is obvious where the diversion is coming from. Also too it is not nice to tap people phones, computers and blackball their careers and lives as what has been going on.

    Now people know the truth with all your aliases. I do believe most if you. Are connected. Also too George pays a lot of money to a security firm that has major federal connections is that not true?

    What George never realized is that these connections would go over the line as they have. Obama has his own troubles and can no longer do his favors either. So attack if you want. People have connected the dots.

    George is getting the rough end. Unless you overinflate box office figures and do a payoff campaign to Oscar committee? Well actually don’t have to. That is what blackmail and coercion is for. George needs a better entourage than this. Of course you guys would not get the blood money you are getting now would you? I am finished with you people.

    George wasted his compassion and money with you losers. Obama should cut the funding as well. God Bless!

  • Good Try Small Fries

    Look what you idiots have done! Shame on you!!!!

    POLL FINDS OBAMA APPROVAL AT HISTORIC LOW: President Barack Obama’s approval ratings have fallen to a new low, with only 36 percent of Americans saying that they approve of the way he is handling his job overall, according to a new poll from the Economist/YouGov. A majority of Americans – 56 percent – disapprove of the president’s performance.

  • sickos go away

    excuse me. what doe kirstie alley have to do with clooney? you people are sick and twisted. she is a scientologist and has enough problems. as far as the wrestler is concerned….if any man is interested in her as a viable gf then power to them. she imo is smut. and not very attractive smut at that. some who post here are mentally ill and should seek help. if you make a statement than BACK IT UP WITH PROOF otherwise shut TFU. viscious, unstable and evil pos that you are.

    @Good Try Small Fries: You’re digressing again with irrelevant information to confuse, Kirstie.
    The fact that Clooney decided this agenda or whether coerced?
    He wants this twisted scenario? Or you & Stan insist it’s best for the longevity of his “brand.” That which makes more money from advertising rather than box office sales….
    Good luck to the lot of you!!!

    @observer:

    Yes, I heard GEORGE CLOONEY posts as WHIPPED HONEY on the imdB. They were talking about it at Chateau Marmont last night.

    And Whipped Honey tried to tell me that Axl Rose is violent towards women by posting an article that’s nearly 20 years old. People change.
    Geeezzz, George isn’t the mullet-head, mono-brow he was when he made Revenge Of The Killer Tomatoes….
    NO now he’s refined…*cough cough* [...choking...] [Help!}
    Ω
    Yeah, Axl may have bit the ankle of a security guard in Sweden a few years ago, but he’s not homicidal anymore. Just super sexy with awesome music. And if he’s violent, it would be the type of pain I’d enjoy :-P
    __
    Then Whipped Honey tells me to bring the “crazy feisty attitude” back. I ignored him. And he edited his message two days later, deleting that comment. What a PUSSSY!!!

    He wanted to know what feeling stirs the soul with such tortures, at the sight of the worst human sufferings…
    He looked at her torture, as at some physical experiment…..”

    if you think that an a-list actor/director etc posts on these inane blogs you are serioulsy delusional. if anything, one of his peonic staff are reading/screening here. and that is a big IF. imo, the huge detriment to the internet is that people can post lies and spread their insanity with immunity. it takes a speical kind of mental illness to misrepresent yourself, even anonymously. my unsolicited advice to the lot of you is to go to a mental health clinic, confess your sickness and get yourself some medication.

  • observer

    WTF? I discovered this by chance, sort of. Is this one of Stan’s sock puppet Twitter accounts?
    twitter.com/CharlieBucket32
    That account tweeted DWTS contestant Kristin Cavallari, who the account also follows.
    twitter.com/kristincav
    twitter.com/CharlieBucket32/following
    All of the people that account follows are young attractive actresses except for also following Hugh Hefner and the official NFL.
    Charlie Buckets is the name of Stan’s grandson, about whom he tweeted on September 8: twitter.com/CharlieBucket32/following
    So Stan named one of his sock puppet Twitter accounts after his grandson and uses it to follow very young and attractive actresses, Hugh Hefner, and the NFL? Very weird and very trashy. Why is he following these young women? If he were interested in being their publicist, there are other ways to go about it. Does he use that account to feel them out, see if they are interested in doing certain types of favors for him in return for providing them with publicity?

  • observer

    Oops, that last Twitter account was supposed to be Stan’s: twitter.com/stanrosenfield
    You can see that he tweeted about Charlie Buckets birthday on Sept. 8.

WhippedHoney is way to stupid to be anyone except who he is, a sad man who can’t get laid in real life so he trolls women on the internet and takes out his sexual frustrations on them.

    good for you observor at least you post things that are checkable…i have seen photos of stan he is on his best day a lawn ornament…is it possible/probable that he is soliciting tail under clooney’s name and that clooney let’s him get away with it? maybe. by now, his “friends” publicist and anyone else that wants to take advantage of him has his number…perhaps this is the source of the ire he ilicits. he feels sorry for the morbidly unattractice who could not get laid except for their connection to him. maybe all this crap boils down to clooney not being able to say no to his fat, balding and unattracitve male friends. it’s as plausible and a much saner theory than those posted here. intelligent rebuttal anyone??? look who i’m askin…..

  • Livewire69

    @sickos go away: now.. now.. no need to get hostile…. or overly defensive.
    I wouldn’t imagine George Clooney has the time to write on any blog. Nor do most A-listers. But even Kirstie in post #29 agrees with that rumor..
    No big deal. Whipped Honey is an OVERLY frustrated male that’s for sure. Probably impotent. Fixated with Clooney’s sex life & toys. Maybe he’s a Republican industry big-gun who envies Clooney :-O
    Oh, never mind!

  • ILoveDavid

    i think he is so sweet and handsome. i don’t care what people say. i know he is not gay or weird (you know “kinky”). sometimes people have a vision of who they want and they hold on to that….i feel that way about the love of my life…he is perfect in every way…for me…i believe in fate and God…just mho

  • Quid Pro Quo

    @sickos go away:
    Your theory may be accurate, judging by Clooney’s behavior/ avoidance of Keibler at the TiFF.
    However, the very fact that he allowed this to continue (for whatever reason) is the source of my own ire. Because, there are millions of people who hold him in high regard. And want to respect him…
    And revere him… Yet the public image propagated by his PR, (that perhaps he halfheartedly yielded and accepted), is self-destructive. It’s sabotage.
    I keep hearing innuendo, insults and stereotyping about his motives or “preferences.” Most people shrug it off & lose respect. Others who genuinely care get upset. And it’s those few that cry out in protest so their voice is heard. Because they fear it’s destroying his credibility.
    Ω
    I’m convinced he’s 100% hetero too.
    It’s just ridiculous to see this manifestation of a public image that makes a mockery of the man. And I presume he’s the one who makes final decisions on his publicity.

  • sickosgoaway

    beautifully said quid pro quo. alas, we do not know the man personally. but those of us who sense he is a decent and kind human being shrink from the “jaded, woman-scorned” scenario so often portrayed. i am a woman’s man and i always give whomever the benefit of the doubt. we don’t know for sure…but if we have a choice, can’t we please be kind??
