To hear George Clooney tell it, actors in Hollywood complain too much. Speaking at The Hollywood Reporter’s actor’s round table, he said, “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… There are long hours, but nobody wants to hear you complain.”
If acting isn’t hard work, then what is? Clooney’s answers, which are from personal experience, are cutting tobacco, selling insurance door to door and selling women’s shoes at a department store.
George Clooney also admitted that listening to other actors complain has made him even more thankful of the luck he’s had in his career. “I didn’t want to hear that,” he said. “So I don’t find [acting] difficult. I find it challenging, and sometimes I’m very bad at it, but I don’t find it hard.” Do you agree with Clooney’s sentiments?
