George Clooney Is Skeptical About the Afterlife

In an interview with AARP The Magazine, actor George Clooney reflected upon his scooter accident in 2018, and mortality.

I’m not a particularly religious guy. So, I have to be skeptical about an afterlife. But as you get older, you start thinking. It’s very hard for me to say, once you’ve finished with this chassis that we’re in, you’re just done. My version of it is that one one-hundredth of a pound of energy that disappears when you die and you’re jamming it right into the hearts of all the other people you’ve been close to. That energy tells me to put down my phone, buy real estate, shun premade salad dressing, write letters, repair my house, gather loved ones around a big circular table … and be curious about others.
