George Clooney - George Clooney Doesn't Need Much Sleep

George Clooney says the older he gets the less sleep he needs.

The 50-year-old actor admits he can no longer lie in bed for hours upon hours and thinks his age has something to do with that because he now wants to make the most of his life.

He told America's Esquire magazine: "I don't sleep much. Five to six, I'd say. You could argue that people, as they get older, sleep less - probably because they're afraid of dying at some point. I know my parents don't sleep much. I know that I used to be able to sleep until noon when I was younger. I couldn't fathom staying in bed until ten now. I wouldn't know what to do unless there's a football game on."

George also revealed how he finds hosting large dinner parties at his home Lake Como, Italy, "hard" because he has to make sure everyone is okay.

He said: "Hosting is work. It means you don't get to go up to your room and disappear and take a nap. Like everybody else does after lunch. I'm talking about hosting, not hosting a dinner party, but hosting people staying in your home.

"You have to have everything set up. 'Okay, guys. Whoever wants to take a boat out, we'll take a boat out at three. Three to five. If we want to take the scooters to get gelato, we'll do that from 5:30 to 7:00.'

"At a table of 15, you can't let one person sit in the corner and not participate. You have to go, 'Hey, Frank. Tell us a story about ...' You want everybody involved at the table."
