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 Says:

    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.***** 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 Says:

    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.

    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

    observer Says:

    @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.

    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.

    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? Says:

    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 Says:

    @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.

  17. 17
    Quid Pro Quo Says:

    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.

    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.

    @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.

    Kirstie Alley is PreferToRemainAnonymous on Clooney’s imdB Board.
