George Clooney Contemplated Suicide Following Syriana Set Injury

|

Did you think finding out the deets about George Clooney’s first orgasm was a little personal? The Ides of March star is just getting started. Joining other candid celebrities like Nicki Minaj, Clooney took a moment in his recent Rolling Stone interview to discuss how he considered suicide after injuring his spine on the set of Syriana. “I was lying in a hospital bed with an IV in my arm, unable to move, having these headaches where it feels like you’re having a stroke, and for a short three-week period, I started to think, ‘I may have to do something drastic about this,’” Clooney revealed. Oh, George! We do you a great disservice when we assume you’re made solely out of martinis and witty banter. We truly do.

Luckily The Descendants star recovered from his injuries, though the lingering effects of the stunt gone wrong contributed to his dropping out of the upcoming The Man From U.N.C.L.E. “You start to think in terms of, you don’t want to leave a mess, so go in the garage, go in the car, start the engine,” Clooney admitted. “It seems like the nicest way to do it, but I never thought I’d get there. See, I was in a place where I was trying to figure out how to survive.” Celebrities: They’re just like us! Even when being “us” involves having some supremely depressing thoughts.
