Los Angeles, Jan 22 (IANS) George Clooney who walked away with the best actor Golden Globe for “The Descendents” says he could not relate to his role in the film.

The 50-year-old actor plays Matt King, a wealthy man who sets out with his two daughters to find the lover of his ailing wife.

“This guy is really going through a phase in his life where he wants to do right by everyone, and I don’t know that that would be part of my make-up. He’s caught up in a strange place in his life and career,” quoted Clooney as saying.

“I enjoyed playing the character but I don’t know that I can relate to him. But part of my job is to do what is asked of me in the script and not have to worry about whether it pertains to me or not. You don’t have to actually shoot heroin to play a drug addict, you know,” he added.

Clooney also admits he fears repeating the same career choices over and over again.

“My biggest fear is doing the same things 10 years from now. That would be a failure. It’s something you have to constantly reassess, and asking yourself what you are going to do next makes it a good long full journey,” he added.
