George Clooney Doesn’t Tweet Because He Likes to Drink

Today our sister site AllTwitter revealed a not-so-surprising secret: certain super-famous people don’t like to tweet because they do like to drink.

Well, that’s the way George Clooney put it, at least. In a recent Variety interview about his new movie The Monuments Men, he explained why prominent actors like himself, Matt Damon and Brad Pitt don’t appear on Twitter:

“Just because, I like to have a drink at night. 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.

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

We like the way he thinks. As big charity guys, he and his friends could just pull a Leonard DiCaprio and tweet about all their non-profit/environmental endeavors. But that would be pretty boring, wouldn’t it?

We still have to agree with Dick Costolo, though: get Tina Fey and Amy Poehler or GTFO. Let’s throw Angelina Jolie in there too, because there’s no way this account is real (too many emojis).
