George Clooney is planning to retire

Feb 11 2014, 5:14pm CST | by

George Clooney thinks he's getting too old for acting.

The 52-year-old star has hinted he is thinking about retiring from the big screen in the near future to focus on his work as a producer and director.

'The Monuments Men' actor, who also wrote and directed the film, told BANG Showbiz at the movie's UK premiere at the Odeon in London's Leicester Square on Tuesday night (11.02.14): ''The audience kind of tells you when it's time to get out from in front of the camera, and it's getting close I think.''

But George insisted he is still very passionate about his career.

He said: ''Every time you can make a movie to tell a story that people don't know, it's good.''

The Oscar-winning actor also joked about how difficult it was to work with his co-star Matt Damon, who also attended the red carpet screening, on the movie, which is based on the true story of a team of soldiers who recovered millions of pieces of artwork stolen by the Nazis in WWII.

He said: ''It was hard to get him out of his trailer sometimes. I don't like to use the word diva and throw it around loosely, but you know.''

But George admitted he loves working with close friends and they inspired the characters.

Asked about securing the star-studded cast, he said: ''Most of these guys are friends of mine so that made it easier, but we wrote the parts for most of them.''

Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin and Hugh Bonneville were among the other stars to attend the premiere.

Alfonso Cuarón’s space fiasco film, (which starred Sandra ...

Rumor: Schumacher's Batman May Live On in a Comic Book

Oct 27 2014 2:05pm CDT | Source: ign

For some odd reason, there's been a lot of chitchat lately about Joel Schumacher's Batman & Robin. But soon, God help us, that chatter may become something more... A few weeks ago at NYCC, star George Clooney addressed his alleged "ban" from Comic-Con, citing his infamous portrayal of the Dark Knight as the main reason. Schumacher also recently apologized for the '97 pic, saying, "Ge ...

Is Michael Keaton Still The Best Batman?

Oct 24 2014 11:08am CDT | Source: movie pilot

Michael Keaton has been taking it easy these past few years. It's hard to call his performance in Birdman a "comeback" because it's not like he disappeared. Even in the middling remake of RoboCop, Keaton managed to turn in fun work. We just haven't seen him chew into really juicy drama lately, which is exactly what he gets to do in the exceptional Birdman. His charm serves his latest film well. He plays an actor struggling with his ...

Who's Really to Blame for Batman and Robin - and THOSE Bat-Nipples?

Oct 15 2014 9:45am CDT | Source: movie pilot

When it comes to superhero movies, there don't come many more epic, genre-defining - and universally panned - than Batman and Robin. After all, Joel Schumacher's 1997 Bat-flick is now arguably the defining example of big-budget, studio-influenced, merchandising-sales-led superhero film-making - and a consistently popular punchline and punching bag for Bat-fans everywhere.Most of which, in fairness, is pretty reasonable - since the m ...

... completely awesome. In case you were confused over the sheer bad-assery of George Clooney (who, upon crashing the Tomorrowland panel at NYCC during his honeymoon, claimed he may not have been invited to past comic-con events "because of that whole Batman thing... you know, the nipples.") Tomorrowland will most certainly give your mind a poke. hnnnggg.I attended the panel on behalf of Moviepilot, and after getting over the heart attack of seeing Hugh Lau ...
