Charlie Sheen he's not, but George Clooney still thinks his penchant for sex and drugs would keep him out politics. He talked to Newsweek about an upcoming movie in which he'll play a "flawed presidential candidate" and explained why he'd be so good for such a role:
Despite occasional overtures from the California Democratic Party, Clooney has rejected the constraints of conventional politics. "I didn’t live my life in the right way for politics, you know," he said, sitting outside the Central Pub in Juba, scarfing down pizza. "I fucked too many chicks and did too many drugs, and that’s the truth." A smart campaigner, he believes, "would start from the beginning by saying, ‘I did it all. I drank the bong water. Now let’s talk about issues.’ That’s gonna be my campaign slogan: ‘I drank the bong water.’?"
If only you hadn't drank all those gallons and gallons of bong water, Clooney, you really could've made something of yourself.
