George Clooney has the cover of the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter, and the “Descendants” star dished on everything from his salary to sobriety and sleeplessness in the accompanying interview.
Despite his leading-man status in Hollywood, Clooney doesn’t make as much as you might think. He took just $300,000 in “The Descendants” — a paltry sum when compared to the $10 million he made in 2000 for “The Perfect Storm” — and THR notes that he rarely takes more than scale for his film projects these days.
George Clooney also revealed that he hasn’t had a drink in 2012. “I drink at times too much,” he admitted. “I do enjoy drinking, and there have been times in my life when it’s crossed the line from being fun to having to drink late at night for absolutely no reason. So what I do is, I stop. I haven’t had a drink since New Year’s Eve.”
