Don't fight ageing, says George Clooney

George Clooney doesn't think there's any point trying to "fight" ageing.

The 54-year-old Hollywood star, who married Lebanese-British lawyer Amal Alamuddin, 37, last year, has argued that men who dye their hair and have plastic surgery usually make themselves look even older than they are.

The 'Tomorrowland' actor explained: "I think for all of us, you have to come to terms with getting older and not trying to fight it.

"You have a couple of options - which is get older or die.

"And so you have to get used to that idea that your roles in films and who you are and how you're perceived is going to change. That will disappoint people at times."

Asked if he'd ever considered cosmetic surgery or dyeing his hair, Clooney told BBC Radio 4: "Clearly I haven't.

"For me it's never been an issue or an option. I don't think it would make much sense quite honestly.

"I've seen it happen - particularly on men - I don't think it really works, I think it actually makes you look older.

"I'm a big believer in the idea that you can't try to look younger. You just have to look the best you can at the age you are."
