George Clooney will be on the cover of the January issue of Esquire Magazine talking about his millions, a killer script, and his clout.

George sat down with Esquire recently and shared his money tips:

“I didn't put money in the stock market. To me that's like Vegas without the dancing girls — none of the fun, no gambling or dancing or drinking — and you don't get to participate. So I paid off my house in cash when I could. It's about having a foundation for when things go bad. I still have that mentality. When things go badly, I'll have this piece of land I can sell first, and then I have this piece of land I can sell second. You always think that way.”

The Cloonsteer also discusses his need for a killer script:

“Good storytelling sets you up. There's a scene at the end of Michael Clayton where I get into the car and say, "Just drive." It's a close-up of me and we're driving. Everybody really loves that scene because it just stays on me the whole time. And people ask, ‘What was going through your head’ The truth of the matter is if you showed that scene at the beginning of the movie, people would say, ‘I'm bored out of my mind.’ So that shows you that it's not the actor that's doing that — it's the story that led to that and got you there. The trick as an actor is not to sell it. Let the story do the work.”

George as well talked about his Hollywood power:

"I have a real interest in pushing some of the limits of things that studios don't want to make. Because I can. I won't be able to at some point in the near future. But right now I can, and while I can, I want to do it. So when you're eighty years old and they ask you what you did, you can go, ‘When I had the keys to the car, I drove it as fast as I could and as hard as I could. I took it to places that the owner didn't really want me to take it.’ That's a fun thing to do. Understanding that at some point they're going to come back and repossess the car. I don't mind that. I just want to be able to say we gave it a shot when we had the time.”

Sounds cool to us.  What do you think?-DocFB

    Good points. But I say that Las Vegas is the stock market minus the corruption! There are fewer lies in places like Las Vegas than anywhere that politics and business “deal”…
