George Clooney talks politics at Tomorrowland premiere

Actor George Clooney, who is rumoured to be eyeing a political career in the US, believes it is up to society to elect politicians who they believe can give us all a brighter future.

The 54-year-old signed autographs and posed for photographs in Leicester Square here on Sunday at the premiere of his new film Tomorrowland: A World Beyond, reports 

Clooney was joined on the red carpet by British actor Hugh Laurie, who plays the villain in the film, and their young co-stars Britt Robertson and <g data-gr-id="24">Raffey</g> Cassidy.

The sci-fi adventure, directed by Brad Bird, is inspired by the futuristic land at the Disney theme parks and Walt Disney’s optimistic vision of <g data-gr-id="25">an utopian</g> future. Clooney plays Frank Walker a former boy-genius inventor in the adventure movie who has become jaded about the future of the world, until he teams up with a <g data-gr-id="29">teenaged</g> girl who is determined to save it.

“I do believe that’s how we work it out - politicians are elected by us, so we as a collective can always make things better and we always have,” Clooney said at the event. “I really do believe that every time things seem very bleak, and I believe that they look very bleak right now, we figure it out. We have to, that’s how society moves forward. I’m a happily married man. I’m very happy,” he added. 

Tomorrowland: A World Beyond is slated to release on May 22.
