Clooney didn’t name the country nor the airline in question. This did not come as a surprise because he has in the past call out various issues such as racism. During his interview with the Guardian, Clooney ruled out a run for a political office saying that “because I would actually like to have a nice life.

Clooney has also had a very successful film career as an actor, producer, and director.
“Well, yeah. I was offered $35m for one day’s work for an airline commercial, but I talked to Amal [Clooney, the human rights lawyer he married in 2014] about it and we decided it’s not worth it. It was [associated with] a country that, although it’s an ally, is questionable at times, and so I thought: ‘Well, if it takes a minute’s sleep away from me, it’s not worth it.’”

“In general, there just aren’t that many great parts – and, look, I don’t have to act. My wife and I had this conversation when I turned 60 this summer. I said: ‘I can still bounce around pretty good, and we both love what we do. But we gotta make sure we don’t book ourselves silly.’ So, part of it is just us making sure we live our lives.”
