George Clooney - George Clooney Couldn't Relate To Character

George Clooney couldn't relate to his character in 'The Descendants'.

The 50-year-old actor plays Matt King - a wealthy man who sets out with his two daughters to find the lover of his ailing wife - in the drama and though he had little in common with his alter ego, he doesn't think that is important.

George - who won Best Actor for his role in the movie at last weekend's Golden Globes - said: "This guy is really going through a phase in his life where he wants to do right by everyone, and I don't know that that would be part of my make-up. He's caught p in a strange place in his life and career.

"I enjoyed playing the character but I don't know that I can relate to him. But part of my job is to do what is asked of me in the script and not have to worry about whether it pertains to me or not.

"You don't have to actually shoot heroin to play a drug addict, you know."

George also admitted he fears repeating the same career choices over and over and would regard not varying his decisions as a professional "failure".

He said: "My biggest fear is doing the same things 10 years from now. That would be a failure. It's something you have to constantly reassess, and asking yourself what you are going to do next makes it a good long full journey."
