Clooney Says No More Blockbusters

30 December 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

George Clooney is turning his back on blockbuster movie roles because the money he earns from them embarrasses him. The movie hunk insists he'd be happy if he works with The Coen Brothers and pal Steven Soderbergh exclusively on future arthouse projects because he wants to gamble with his roles. Clooney was left red-faced by the huge sum he received for playing a fisherman in The Perfect Storm and says he'll never make a movie like that again. He explains, "How a film costs $90 million is insane. They'll pay me $20 million, which is dumb. If you're in the position I'm in, you should just work for a percentage and gamble. If the money works, I make a s**tload of money. If it doesn't, then I got the movie I wanted made." Clooney has already starred in three Soderbergh movies, including this year's sci-fi flop Solaris, and he's working with the Coens again - after his success in O Brother, Where Art Thou - on Intolerable Cruelty. »
