George Clooney is known for really throwing himself into his movie roles. It looks like his vigor has exceeded his vim, though, and an old back injury has caused the silver fox to back out of his role in a new action adventure film.
E! Online reminded his fans:
It’s no secret that the movie that earned George Clooney an Oscar also pretty much ruined his health. After a particularly violent torture scene in Syriana severely hurt his back and brain, Clooney’s been coping with the injuries ever since… And according to sources on Steven Soderbergh‘s upcoming Man From U.N.C.L.E. flick, Clooney is dropping out because of these same old injuries, which have never entirely healed…
Hearing the news his back is out is no big surprise, though. After nearly two years dating thirty-something Italian swimsuit model Elisabetta Canalis (an athletic girl now scheduled to appear on Season 13 of Dancing With The Stars) followed by a new stint dating a professional female wrestler, the fifty-year-old was likely to have some “down time” coming.
