George Clooney Explains Why He Turned Down $35 Million For A Day’s Work

Clooney, director of the upcoming movie “The Tender Bar,” said he rejected a multimillion-dollar paycheck for a foreign airline commercial after talking it over with his wife, the human rights lawyer Amal Clooney.

“It was [associated with] a country that, although it’s an ally, is questionable at times,” Clooney said. “And so I thought: ‘Well, if it takes a minute’s sleep away from me, it’s not worth it.’”

Clooney did not name the country or the airline.
