George Clooney doesn't want to rely on acting roles as he gets older.

The 52-year-old star - who is set to hit the big screen as Lieutenant Frank Stokes in 'The Monuments Men' which he also wrote, produced and directed - is exploring other parts of filmmaking as he ages, and ''enjoys'' both writing and directing.

Talking to, the Hollywood hunk said: ''The two things I have found later in life, much of it is out of necessity, as you get older as an actor you don't want to rely on being on screen for the rest of your career, so you want other things. I really enjoy writing and directing.''

Clooney was thrilled the A-List cast which includes Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman and Cate Blanchett, all agreed to star in 'The Monuments Men' since the script was written with them in mind.

He added: ''I flew to Australia for one day to give Cate the script. Bill Murray was at my house, he's a friend. We wrote the parts for almost every one of the actors in it, so we got our first choices. It's unusual but it's also really fun. Having John Goodman again was ... a good friend ... it was good fun.''

'The Monuments Men' follows an Allied group who try and save pieces of art and other items of cultural importance before their destruction by German dictator and leader of the Nazi Party, Adolf Hitler, during the Second World War.
