“I remember I would hear of famous stars complaining in Hollywood about how hard their life was – I didn’t want to hear that,” Clooney said. “I cut tobacco for a living in Kentucky. That was hard work. I sold insurance door-to-door. That’s hard work. Acting is not hard work. If you’re lucky enough to be sitting at a table like this, you’ve been very lucky in your life.”
“You caught the brass ring somewhere along the way,” he added. Clooney acknowledged that the job includes long hours and can be challenging, but it certainly isn’t something these stars should complain about.
Clooney took girlfriend Stacy Keibler to Craig’s on Melrose last night (December 6th) in West Hollywood, smiling as the paparazzi snapped pictures of the couple. Clooney wore a smile on his face the entire time, acknowledging that this is part of his job.
