George Clooney has recently elaborated on how he stays away from “trouble” in digital age.

“I don’t think you can be a star and be that available,” said the Money Monster actor.

“And both of them had great humour about themselves,” he added.

Interestingly, George is being honoured at the Kennedy Centre this month for his contributions in philanthropy in addition to acting and direction.

“It’s interesting that he’s getting the Kennedy Centre Honours this year because Newman got it too. They fit in a long line of really responsible artists, people who make a contribution to American culture and are civic leaders,” stated Ethan Hawke, who directed this year’s HBO documentary The Last Movie Stars.

Movie-maker Steven Soderbergh also lauded George, saying, “The default mode really doesn’t lead you to a place of thinking about fairness, or defending people who can’t defend themselves.
