George Clooney, a 50-something who has looked 40-something since he was 20-something, is considering ditching a career in front of the camera to pursue a career behind the camera due to his age. In a recent BBC interview promoting Hail, Caesar!, the quinquagenarian explained the motives behind his new focus on directing:

I think nobody really wants to see anybody really age. You know, it's a very unforgiving thing, the camera is, and so aging becomes something that you know, you try to do less and less onscreen. You try to pick the films that work best for you and as you age they become less and less.
