His last acting job was in 2016 and George Clooney says featuring in films is not a priority for him anymore as he does not need the money.
"If you look at what I've been in over the past 15 years, for the most part they weren't going to get made if I didn't do them", he said. He jokingly added that, at least, he "shouldn't" be the guy who gets the woman anymore.
Clooney started the company with the real estate mogul Mike Meldeman and Rande Gerber (AKA Cindy Crawford's husband, or, as he may better be known at this point in time, Kaia Gerber's father) back in 2013 while the friends were on vacation in Mexico. "I don't need money", he added, as reported by E!
Clooney said the billion-dollar deal gives him leeway to continue to "fight to make the movies I want to make".
George Clooney says Democrats have yet to find a potential 2020 nominee who "lights up a room" like President Trump.

He continued: "But, look, if somebody's got Paul Newman in The Verdict, I'd jump". But the dad of two and fierce Trump critic nixed adding his name to any list of 2020 White House hopefuls.

"I don't have political aspirations", the father of two stressed.
As for his thoughts on Mr Trump, Clooney said, "Trump, for all his awful instincts, is very charismatic".
One career move that Clooney isn't interested in is running for political office, though he does have strong opinions. "But, mostly, I can help in ways I actually know very well, like messaging [voters]", he said.
