George Clooney: I Don’t Tweet Because I Like To Have A Drink At Night

George Clooney: I Don't Tweet Because I Like To Have A Drink At Night

Many people have a wish list of famous folk they’d like to see on Twitter, and I’d wager that a number of them have George Clooney on that roster. He seems like a decent enough fellow in real life, has won Oscars for both acting and producing, and has the chops and chutzpah to actually be interesting. Let’s face it: few celebrities actually are.

But don’t hold your breath – George isn’t coming to Twitter anytime soon, and neither, in his opinion, are Brad Pitt and Matt Damon, neither. Why? Because he likes to have a drink.

Clooney graces this week’s cover of Variety and he spoke to the magazine about his feelings on Twitter – specifically, why he’ll never join the social network.

“Just because, I like to have a drink at night,” says George. “I could easily say something stupid, and I also don’t think you need to be that available. I don’t see Matt [Damon] or Brad [Pitt] or myself wanting to get our thoughts out in a 140-character-thing at 3 in the morning.”

And it’s not just alcohol that worries George.

“God forbid you take a sleeping pill and wake up and the sentences don’t even make sense. What a horrible idea.”
