George Clooney – waiting for my switch to turn off after a motorcycle accident – archyde

George Clooney said he “waited for my switch to turn off” after having a motorcycle accident that could have killed him.

The actor was hospitalized after being hit by a car in Sardinia in 2018 while filming Catch 22, a TV adaptation of the book of the same name by Joseph Heller, on the Italian island.

The crash happened when a Mercedes turned in front of him and Clooney was thrown off the motorcycle and hit the windshield.

The driver called Italian carabinieri who sent the city police, an ambulance and the fire department and while on the ground he found a crowd gathering and people were filming him on their cell phones.

He told the Sunday Times, “I was waiting for my switch to turn off. I am fine now.

“When you are in public, you find that for some people, if you think it’s the last minute of your life, it’s just entertainment for their Facebook page.

“I’m a pretty positive guy, but that made it clear to me that you were really only here for their entertainment.”

He added, “They want to take each one and shake it.”

Clooney was celebrating his 60th birthday in May when his wife Amal hosted a party for close friends.

He said, “Turning 60 is a disappointment. But it’s that or dead. “

“I said to Amal, knock on wood, I’m healthy. I still play basketball with the younger gang. I feel good.

“But in 20 years I’ll be 80 – and 80 is a real number.

“I said the next 20 years are happy and we have to celebrate. We should focus on the work we are doing to be exactly what we need to be that we feel in our chests. “
