George Clooney Speaks on... Suicide?!?

by at . Comments

George Clooney is an Oscar winner, a philanthropist and a bachelor with a new beautiful woman on his arm almost every year.

Yet the actor tells the latest issue of Rolling Stone that life wasn't always so perfect. Far from it, in fact.

Referring to a spinal injury he suffered on the set of Syriana in 2005, Clooney said he was bedridden and "at a point where I thought, 'I can't exist like this. I can't actually live."

Clooney added that the severe headaches and spinal fluid leaks through his nose were the most painful experiences he's ever had.

"I was lying in a hospital bed with an IV in my arm, unable to move, having these headaches where it feels like you're having a stroke, and for a shirt three-week period, I started to think, 'I may have to do something drastic about this'...but I never thought I'd get there. See, I was in a place where I was trying to figure out how to survive."

Fortunately, of course, the star did just that. He said drank heavily at the time, but surgery eventually helped with the spinal difficulties. He still suffers from bad headaches.

tguorhh the practice of their craft. If they haven't said it tguorhh their art, their art is that much the less.The exception, of course, is writers. Words are their stock and trade. Haven't you noticed at the Academy Awards that the best acceptance speeches are always the writers?

I've always enjoyed going to watch your Movies- Then I found out you were a Obama Support. Have not seen one of yours since. Suicide is a serious thing! If I was a Obama supporter I would think of it also! Maybe you should think of it again- then try it!

I am the sexiest man of peace.

George Clooney

Sydney made the world a little better, movies a little better and even dinner a little better. A tip of the hat to a class act. He'll be missed terribly.
