Don’t expect George Clooney to have a second act as a politician.

The Oscar-winning actor doesn’t plan to enter the political realm at any point, he told the BBC in a new interview.

“No, because I would actually like to have a nice life,” Clooney said on “The Andrew Marr Show.”

The 60-year-old actor said he has spoken with wife Amal Clooney, 43, about enjoying this stage of their lives.

“In 20 years, I’ll be 80 and that’s a real number,” he said. “Doesn’t matter how much you work out. Doesn’t matter what you eat, you’re 80. So I said we have to make sure we enjoy and live these years in the best possible way.”

Clooney, who supports the Democratic Party, also said he doesn’t put too much stock into low poll numbers for President Biden in his first year in office after winning the election over Donald Trump.

“There’s a lot of things that have to be repaired,” Clooney said. “There’s a lot of healing that has to happen, and it’s going to take time. Poll numbers come up and come down. I would expect them go back up again.”

Clooney won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in 2006 for “Syriana.” He was also a producer on “Argo,” which won Best Picture at the Academy Awards in 2003.

His latest film, “The Tender Bar,” hits United States theaters on Dec. 17.
