Clooney Explains Himself Over Suicidal Comments
LATEST: George Clooney has lashed out at reports he contemplated suicide at the beginning of the year (05), insisting his comments were misrepresented in a British broadsheet.
Talking about the horrific pain he experienced after suffering a brain injury while filming forthcoming movie Syriana last Christmas (05), Clooney allegedly told the newspaper he considered ending his life because he was in so much agony.
But, in a statement released yesterday (24OCT05), Clooney quickly explained his comments.
He said, "I think, if you listen to the piece, I certainly did not talk about wanting to kill myself. I was talking about the idea of living for years in that kind of pain."
Clooney ended his brief statement with a message to all publications who embellish interviews: "Please don't use my words out of context."
