You ever finish a hard day's work and think to yourself "I deserve about $35 million for that". Yeah, no, me neither. And looks like famous Nespresso lover thinks the same.

In an interview with the Guardian, Clooney revealed that he was offered the enormous sum of money by an un-named airline company to appear in one of their ads.

His wife, Amal, who is a human rights lawyer, convinced him not to take the job, as the country which the airline was associated with was "a country that, although it’s an ally, is questionable at times, and so I thought: 'Well, if it takes a minute’s sleep away from me, it’s not worth it.'"

Yep, we absolutely would have done the same, George. Who needs that pocket change anyway?

Clooney was talking to the UK newspaper about his upcoming film 'The Tender Bar', which he directs. Ben Affleck stars in the film based on the memoirs of writer J.R Moehmringer.

In the chat, Clooney also touches on the subject of fame. He notes his aunt Rosemary Clooney was a famous actress who starred in films alongside Bing Crosby and said he "worshipped" her and dreamt about the idea of Hollywood when he was younger.

Clooney mentions that he managed to avoid most Hollywood star slip-ups during his career because he started older. He only really shot to fame in his mid-thirties with 'ER'.

"I’m lucky enough to understand how little the fame side has to do with me."

Last month, Clooney penned an open letter to the press to stop photographing his children. He said his kids have "no such commitment" to the trappings of fame that he must live with.
