George Clooney Reveals His 'Dumb' Mistakes

George Clooney seems pretty flawless when it comes to…well, life. He's charming, he's happy, he can work any room. But even George says he's made his share of bad choices.

"I've certainly made some turkeys along the way and made some dumb choices in my career, mostly early on," Clooney said.

The 'Descendants' star continued: "I'm one of the lucky ones who got to make a lot of mistakes very early on when no one was paying attention."

Well people sure as hell are paying attention now. So what exactly were those mistakes?

"I did a lot of terrible TV shows," Clooney said.

Oh I know you ain't talking about Roseanne.

"[I] was really terrible in them, but nobody really noticed."

Clooney admitted he enjoys writing and directing more than acting because they're more creative and he wants to make the most of his opportunities.

George made his directorial debut with Confessions of a Dangerous Mind in 2002.

Clooney told the Daily Telegraph:

"I've had some success at writing and directing, and I like it. It's infinitely more creative than just acting and I have things I want to say and do. I feel like I've been given these keys and the ability to drive the old man's car and I know they're going to take the keys away at some point, so I want to drive it as much as I possibly can."

Okay, I just looked it up, and it probably wasn't Roseanne. It was most likely The Facts of Life.
