“I have a real interest in pushing some of the limits of things that studios don’t want to make. Because I can. I won’t be able to at some point in the near future. But right now I can, and while I can, I want to do it. So when you’re eighty years old and they ask you what you did, you can go, “When I had the keys to the car, I drove it as fast as I could and as hard as I could. I took it to places that the owner didn’t really want me to take it.”
That’s a fun thing to do. Understanding that at some point they’re going to come back and repossess the car. I don’t mind that. I just want to be able to say we gave it a shot when we had the time.”
- George Clooney
In which the Cloon Dog breaks down a version of how I’d like to live my life. This is one of my favorite “interviews” i’ve read in awhile, as I respond to a lot of what he says [buying his house(s), friends]. I saw him a few weeks ago at a Descendants screening. I wasn’t much impressed by the film and I didn’t get a thrill out of seeing him amongst a group. However, it’d be a thrill to just shoot the shit with him one on one. I’d ask nothing but some drinks and conversation.
