George Clooney isn’t looking forward to hitting 60 in five years’ time and is convinced, rather than throw a huge party, he’ll probably celebrate it by crying in his bedroom all day.
George Clooney thinks he’ll spend the majority of his 60th birthday “hiding” in his bedroom “crying”.
The ‘Monuments Men’ star may have only just turned 55 but he has admitted thoughts of his next big milestone, despite being five years away, are already plaguing his mind.
Speaking to ‘Entertainment Tonight’ he said: “[I’ll probably celebrate it] by mostly hiding in my room and crying because the next one is 60 … The thing is, age has never been an issue — turning 50 didn’t bother me, turning 55 didn’t bother me. None of it bothered. But I think 60 is going to kind of…”
However, although he’s not looking forward to hitting the sixth decade of his life, George is adamant his wife Amal Clooney will no doubt pull out all the stops to ensure he gets an extra special gift following her decision to buy him a giant lawn mower for his 55th birthday last Friday (06.05.16).
He said recently: “We have a beautiful front lawn at our house in England and I used to mow lawns when I was a kid. So she bought me this giant riding lawn mower that is sitting at the house right now and I’m very excited about putting that to work when I’m home.”
The couple have been married for 20 months after the Hollywood hunk popped the question in April 2014.
But the romantic proposal didn’t go according to plan as George was constantly worried he’d put his hip out as he got down on one knee and presented the lawyer with her ring.
He said recently: “I got down on my knee and said, ‘I couldn’t imagine spending the rest of my life without you.’ And she kept looking at the ring and she was looking at me and she was like ‘Oh my God.’ And we now know because there is a playlist, so we know how long it actually took, and it’s like 25 minutes, 25 minutes!
“Finally I literally said, ‘Look, I hope the answer’s yes, but I need an answer. I’m 52 and I could throw out my hip pretty soon’. And she said, ‘Oh, yes’ and it worked out really well.”
