The American actor and star, George Clooney, revealed that he refused to work for one day for $ 35 million because it contradicts his convictions.
And it was an airline, which Clooney did not name, that proposed $35 million to him to shoot a promotional clip, and the duration of filming was only one day.
“After discussions with my wife, I decided to refuse,” Clooney said.
As for the reason behind the refusal, or what goes against his principles to reject this tempting offer, Clooney said that the airline is linked to a “questionable” country.
“Although that country is an ally of the United States, it has been questionable at times, so I said, well, if that’s the case, there’s no way to work with them,” he said.
It is noteworthy that Clooney co-founded a non-governmental organization concerned with fighting corruption around the world called “The Sentry”.
The man has strict stances against corrupt money, and he often expressed this in front of the international media.
And in 2019, Clooney called on the international community to “intervene” to combat corruption in South Sudan, denouncing the links between multinational companies, businessmen and foreign governments with officials in the country.
While presenting a report in London to The Sentry, Clooney urged the United States and the European Union to impose sanctions on those responsible for corruption and their networks in South Sudan.
“I think they (the United States and the European Union) should do more. I don’t know if they will be able to end (corruption), but they can certainly make it more difficult” for the perpetrators, he said, speaking during a press conference in London with his wife Amal Alamuddin present, Human rights lawyer.
Amal is an English-Lebanese lawyer, human rights activist and writer.
