Everything was running smoothly until four days to report to the set for the film when he started complaining of stomach pains.
It was at that juncture when he was rushed to the hospital where he was diagnosed with pancreatitis.
Legit.ng gathered that the actor spent weeks in hospital as he recovered.
Clooney who also directs the film said he bit more than he could chew with the weight loss process but was glad he received all the medical help he needed on time. He said:
“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.
“I think I was trying too hard to lose the weight quickly and probably was not taking care of myself.”
Weight loss was not the only thing he had to do for his new role as he was also forced to grow a wizardesque beard, something that turned off his wife Amal, 42.
Meanwhile, American actor and gorgeous hunk of man, Michael B. Jordan, has decided to help a barber school by launching an OnlyFans account.
The money raised from it will go to helping the school. During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Jordan tested the waters by teasing fans, saying he would open an account.
