George Clooney 'suffocated' by fame

George Clooney

George Clooney has admitted that he sometimes feels "suffocated" by fame. The 54-year-old Oscar winner told the Daily Mail: “Fame has an interesting element to it, but if you tend to be followed round by a camera then you can feel suffocated at times”.

Clooney, who uses his fame to highlight several causes, from the environment to global poverty said: “I thought it (fame) might be effective if I went to those places and got those cameras to follow me

and try and amplify these stories of people who were doing such hard work, such dangerous work”.

Clooney was speaking at a remembrance service at the Armenian Genocide Memorial in Yerevan where the president of Armenia was present.

Clooney is about to release his new movie, Money Monster, a film about the 2008 financial crash which co-stars Julia Roberts.
