After colliding with another vehicle while filming “Catch 22” in Sardinia in 2018, the 60-year-old “Ocean’s Eleven” star revealed he “was waiting for my switch to turn off” in an interview with the Sunday Times published Saturday. Clooney added, “I’m OK now.”
When he was resting on the ground, the actor-director spotted a crowd forming around him. The majority of the individuals began photographing and videotaping his injuries, which alarmed Clooney.
“What you learn when you’re in the public spotlight and you’re on the ground thinking it’s the final minute of your life is that for some people, it’s just going to be entertainment for their Facebook page,” he told the newspaper.
“I’m a pretty upbeat guy, but that informed me right away that you’re only here for their amusement.” “You want to take every one and shake them,” Clooney said, referring to the bystanders’ impulse to videotape him rather than offer to assist.
Clooney was flung over the handlebars when a vehicle collided with his motorcycle. The actor was taken to the hospital after the event, where he received bruises as a result of the collision, before being released several days later.
He later said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that the impact “broke my helmet in two” and “knocked me out of my shoes” during the incident.
Clooney has joked that his wife Amal Clooney, whom he married in 2014, had prevented him from riding motorcycles since they married.
During a “Catch 22” panel in 2019, he claimed, “I’m not authorized to ride motorcycles.” “I was in a terrible car accident. On my bike, I collided with a man traveling at 70 mph. I was able to launch.
As a result, I’m no longer riding a bicycle.” Meanwhile, Clooney discussed “hyper stardom,” which he described as a “bug light,” in his latest interview. “When you’re a young actor, you’re on a mission to achieve success, which involves fame. And you can get badly burned as soon as you arrive.
Everything becomes more important in terms of what you can do or say – you must learn to be responsible, for example “He went on to explain. “I’m fortunate that I became renowned at the age of 33, rather than 23.
If I had been 23 and had been given money and success, I would have been shooting crack into my forehead.” No, according to the “Batman and Robin” actor.
