George Clooney is the star of the January issue of Esquire.
In an exclusive interview conducted at the superstar’s LA home, editor Alex Bilmes talks to Clooney about the pro and cons of fame, life as a single man and the endless Internet gossip about his sexuality.
On being a celebrity, he says: “Not that I’m comparing myself to Clark Gable or whoever but they couldn’t survive in this environment. They’d punch the shit out of some people. It requires a kind of Zen quality."
The Gravity star also shares his views on social media, saying: “I think anyone who is famous is a moron if they’re on Twitter. It’s just stupid.”
January’s special film edition of Esquire also features interviews with Ray Winstone and Ralph Fiennes, as well as Kevin Maher writing on how Hollywood has been taken over by comic-book geeks.
