As a pediatrician Dr.
Doug Ross became
George Clooney in the 1990s in
and a little later he made a career in Hollywood.
Now the actor is celebrating his 60th birthday.
He's not happy about it.
I'm not thrilled about it, but it's better than being dead
In old age, however, you are satisfied with less.
But even at 60, Clooney still has big plans. With his company Smokehouse Pictures he wants to produce a documentary series about an abuse scandal at a US university. As a director, he wants to get Ben Affleck in front of the camera for the bestseller film »The Tender Bar«. As an actor, he is planning a further collaboration with his close friend Julia Roberts. In the romantic comedy "Ticket To Paradise" they are supposed to travel together as ex-spouses to Bali to prevent their daughter from marrying too young.
Acting still determines Clooney's life.
As a screenwriter, director, producer and actor he was nominated eight times for an Oscar, in 2006 he won it for best supporting actor in »Syriana«.
He won his second trophy in 2013 as a co-producer of the political drama "Argo".
As a director, he has already made seven full-length feature films, including the suburban crime film “Suburbicon”, the political drama “Ides of March” and the black and white film “Good Night, and Good Luck” about the communist hunt in the 1950s.
Clooney established himself as a cinema actor with Quentin Tarantino's cult horror film "From Dusk Till Dawn".
Engagement, wedding, twins
But Clooney didn't just make headlines on the big screen.
For a long time he had a reputation as a Hollywood charmer.
The US magazine “People” named him “Sexiest Man Alive” twice.
The eternal bachelor often emphasized that he was not made for marriage.
He had already tried a marriage between 1989 and 1993 with the actress Talia Balsam.
When he met the British-Lebanese human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin in 2013, it happened very quickly: engagement (April 2014), wedding in Venice (September 2014) and the twins Ella and Alexander (June 2017).
Also because of his family, the 60-year-old never gets bored during pandemic times.
"I'll tell you what my hobby is: two or three loads of laundry a day, dishes all day long, because these children are pure chaos," the twin father told the magazine "W" recently.
