George Clooney thinks he should retire

George Clooney at the UK premiere of `The Monuments Men` George Clooney thinks he's getting too old for acting. The 52-year-old star has hinted he is thinking about retiring from the big screen in the near future to focus on his work as a producer and director. The Monuments Men actor, who also wrote and directed the film, told BANG Showbiz at the movie's U.K. premiere at the Odeon in London's Leicester Square on Tuesday night: ''The audience kind of tells you when it's time to get out from in front of the camera, and it's getting close, I think.'' But George insisted he's still passionate about his career. He said: ''Every time you can make a movie to tell a story that people don't know, it's good.'' He also joked about how difficult it was to work with his co-star Matt Damon, saying, ''It was hard to get him out of his trailer sometimes. I don't like to use the word diva and throw it around loosely, but you know.'' Asked about securing the star-studded cast, he said: ''Most of these guys are friends of mine so that made it easier, but we wrote the parts for most of them.'' Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin and Hugh Bonneville were also at the premiere.

    I’d much rather see Jennifer Lawrence retire.

    I don’t see his appeal. If he retired, I wouldn’t even notice.
