George Clooney once turned down a life-changing amount of money for one day's work because the paycheck would come from a "questionable" country.
The actor, 60, didn't say what country that was, but implied that his wife, Amal, a human rights attorney, dissuaded him from taking the job.
"I was offered $35 million for one day's work for an airline commercial, but I talked to Amal about it and we decided it's not worth it," he told The Guardian. "It was [associated with] a country that, although it's an ally, is questionable at times, and so I thought, 'Well, if it takes a minute's sleep away from me, it's not worth it.'"
George is reportedly worth $500 million, so he's certainly in a position to back away from a massive payday. Also, the two-time Oscar winner is said to rake in more than $30 million for his role as spokesman for Nespresso.
Proving that money isn't really a concern for George anymore, he further added that he's not acting as much as he used to because he wants to spend more time with his wife and children. Plus, he's very particular about his projects.
"In general, there just aren't that many great parts – and, look, I don't have to act. My wife and I had this conversation when I turned 60 this summer. I said, 'I can still bounce around pretty good, and we both love what we do. But we gotta make sure we don't book ourselves silly,'" he said. "So, part of it is just us making sure we live our lives."
