We think George Clooney's only getting better with age, but the actor says turning 50 has come with a few adjustments.
"I look at myself on-screen and go, 'I don't look like I did when I was 40–I know that,'" Clooney tells Parade. "The people I've respected most in the industry over the years — Paul Newman, for instance. I just loved the way he handled growing old on-screen. It's understanding that you're now basically a character actor."
"I find that as you get older, you start to simplify things in general. By the time you get a subscription to AARP, which I just got, you have some idea of who your friends are, at least. [Getting the AARP subscription] shocked me–'Are you kidding?' [laughs] I told them they should do 'The Sexiest Man Still Alive.'"

Famed bachelor George Clooney is single once again.
A rep for the 50-year-old actor confirmed to CNN that he’s split from his girlfriend of two years, 32-year-old Italian actress and personality Elisabetta Canalis.

He may play a dirty presidential candidate in the upcoming drama "The Ides of March," but in real life George Clooney would never dream of running for office.
"I didn't live my life in the right way for politics," Clooney, who has been approached by the California Democratic Party, tells Newsweek. "I f—ed too many chicks and did too many drugs, and that’s the truth."
And telling the truth, he says, is key for any campaigner. A savvy politician "would start from the beginning by saying, 'I did it all. I drank the bong water. Now let's talk about issues,'" says Clooney. "That’s gonna be my campaign slogan: 'I drank the bong water'?"

She may not have the most successful track record when it comes to men, but you won't see Jennifer Aniston turning to "The Bachelor" to find love.
"I was mesmerized by these girls, they meet this guy, they have three dates together or something, and they're weeping as though they've just lost the love of their life," Aniston tells February's Allure of the dating series. "I don't understand that."
ABC isn't the only network that has the actress scratching her head. She also believes NBC hasn't had programs that are Must See TV since "Friends" went off the air.

Angelina Jolie's "Cleopatra" is one step closer to getting made, George Clooney is starring in an Italian movie, and the Ouija board will soon be scaring up some fun on the big screen.
Producer Scott Rudin tells Deadline.com that he is close to hiring a director for Jolie's "Cleopatra" 3-D spectacular. Though Rudin won't name names, it's rumored that Paul Greengrass, who helmed the "Bourne Identity" franchise, will direct the Queen of the Nile biopic.
The film, based on author Stacy Schiff's "Cleopatra: A Life," will be much different from the 1963 movie starring Elizabeth Taylor, promises Rudin. "It is a completely revisionist Cleopatra, a much more grown-up sophisticated version," he has said. "She’s not a sex kitten, she’s a politician, strategist, warrior."
