Ju­lianne Moore: I can’t bear the thought of ‘Pres­i­dent Clooney’

The Mail on Sunday - - Comment -

SHE counts George Clooney as a close friend and stars in his new film, but Ju­lianne Moore has some bru­tally hon­est ad­vice for the Hol­ly­wood A-lis­ter: Stay away from pol­i­tics.

There has been spec­u­la­tion that Clooney will one day run for the White House. But Ju­lianne, right, who stars in Clooney’s Subur­bicon, tells The Mail on Sun­day’s You mag­a­zine: ‘I can’t bear it, this idea of re­lat­ing lead­ers with en­ter­tain­ment fig­ures. What you want is a pres­i­dent who is ex­pe­ri­enced in gov­ern­ment. I don’t even want to joke about movie stars be­ing pres­i­dent of the US.’

While Ju­lianne, 56, is against any po­lit­i­cal am­bi­tions Clooney might have, she is full of ad­mi­ra­tion for his role as a hus­band and fa­ther of twins.

Re­fer­ring to his mar­riage to hu­man-rights lawyer Amal Ala­mud­din, she says: ‘You can see the dif­fer­ence in his per­son­al­ity, how set­tled he seems… he adores Amal.’
