Despite most of his films being box office failures, Clooney is still the most recognizable star and he’s an icon. Probably because he rose to fame and became well-known for the drama TV-show “ER” in which he became famous for. I’m pretty sure Clooney is still getting big paychecks from that show so I’m sure he doesn’t care whether his movies flop or not. Maybe Clooney is not worried about the money when acting? He does acting for a living ’cause maybe he enjoys it and it’s his passion?
I’m not a big fan of Clooney’s liberal politics and all that but I won’t deny that he has some good films. Some of my favorites that he did in his career were: “Gravity”, the Oceans trilogy, “Fantastic Mr. Fox”, “O Brother, Where Art Thou”, “Solaris”, “Michael Clayton” and that war film, “The Thin Red Line”. Yeah, most of Clooney’s movies weren’t good but he does have some good ones.
There were a lot of other actors who had most of their movies flopped like Sly Stallone for one but he’s still the most recognizable star. The same goes for Eddie Murphy, Daniel Craig and Nicole Kidman. Most of their movies flopped too but they are still a “star”.
Don’t listen to the NY Post ’cause they are just being “opinionated”.
I just believe these actors don’t care about the money. Like I said, they’re in Hollywood ’cause they enjoy the passion of acting and that’s what they do it for. Maybe they don’t see it as a job and they just wanna be a part of Hollywood? They just wanna act in movies and have fun. Not caring whether or not their movies are a hit.
On top of that, just because an actor/actress has most of their films flopped in the box office, doesn’t necessarily mean they are untalented. It doesn’t necessarily mean they continue to make movies no one wants to see and it doesn’t mean their movies suck either. I’ve seen some amazing movies even though they didn’t sell well in the box office.
That article is all a crock of shit.
