Earlier while promoting the sci-fi drama, George revealed that he was hospitalized with pancreatitis just four days before the first shoot of the film. The actor told The Mirror: “I think I was trying too hard to lose the weight quickly and probably wasn’t taking care of myself. It took a few weeks to get better and as a director, it’s not so easy because you need energy. We were out on this glacier in Finland, which made it a lot harder work. But it certainly helped with the character.” George Clooney Slams Donald Trump, Thanks the US President to Make Juneteenth Famous.
