George Clooney is the anti-Kim Kardashian.

He doesn’t star in a sex tape, he possesses true talent, he is involved in numerous charities, his personality is more engaging than that of a mannequin. Oh, and you’ll never find him on a social media network.

“I don’t Tweet, I don’t go on Facebook,” Clooney says in the latest issue of Parade. “I think there’s too much information about all of us out there. I’m liking the idea of privacy more and more. There will be funny things, like I’ll read something I’ve said about a woman somewhere. And I haven’t spoken about my relationships in 15 years.”

The Oscar winner also jokes about his latest film – or doesn’t joke, sadly – and why The Ides of March is relevant right now:

“We were in preproduction on this film in 2007, before the Obama election. And then we realized that a good portion of the country was elated with what happened in that election, so we had to shelve the movie until people were cynical again. I didn’t think it would be quite this quick [Laughs].”

Co-starring Ryan Gosling, Paul Giamatti and other big names, The Ides of March comes out on October 7.
