$35 million paycheck

We can only dream of earning $35 million in our lifetime and George Clooney rejected an airline commercial which he only need to work one day. Well there is this saying “Going on stage for 1 minute is equivalent of 10 years of hard work behind the scenes”.

Clooney revealed in an interview with The Guardian that, he was offered $35million for one day of working to be in an airline commercial and this is why:

“Well, yeah. I was offered $35m for one day’s work for an airline commercial, but I talked to Amal (His wife) about it and we decided it’s not worth it. It was associated with a country that, although it’s an ally, is questionable at times, and so I thought: ‘Well, if it takes a minute’s sleep away from me, it’s not worth it.’”
