Hollywood star George Clooney said he doesn’t see himself as a leading man anymore because of his age.

The 56-year-old star - who recently welcomed twins Alexander and Ella with his wife Amal Clooney - has been out of the acting game for nearly two years and he said his age has had an effect on the type of roles he could be cast in, The Hollywood Reporter said.

“I haven’t acted in almost two years and I am not really sure when the next version of that would be.

“If somebody brought me The Verdict, I’d jump. But I’m not going to do movies just to be in front of the camera. I did that for a long time and I had a good run. And as you get older, the parts aren’t as interesting. I’m not a leading man anymore. Nobody wants to see me kiss the girl.”
