Actor George Clooney considered killing himself six years ago, after he injured himself while shooting a film. The 50-year-old injured himself while filming spy thriller Syriana in 2005, and he was so racked with pain as a result of the spinal condition that he thought about ending his life, reports “I started to think, ‘I may have to do something drastic about this’.

I was in a hospital bed unable to move, having these headaches where it feels like you’re having a stroke,” Clooney told Rolling Stone magazine. “You don’t want to leave a mess, so go in the garage, go in the car, start the engine. I was in a place where I was trying to figure out how to survive,” he added.
