George Clooney was throwing it back Tuesday night, celebrating the 15th anniversary of his film O Brother, Where Art Thou?, a role the actor says he still gets recognized for to this day.
"I always hear, ‘I'm a Dapper Dan man’ or ‘We're in a tight spot'," the 54-year-old actor told ET at the film’s reunion screening at the New York Film Festival. "And I've been hearing that literally for 15 years straight. So I'm here to put it to bed tonight."
The Coen brothers’ adventure comedy was released back in 2000, and Clooney joined ET for a quick flashback to what he remembered from the year.
"I remember Y2K, everyone thought the world was going to blow up," he recalled with a laugh. "I remember being a lot younger and a lot less grey. It's fun to see all the actors now, they look good."
While O Brother, Where Art Thou? is certainly one of Clooney’s iconic roles, the part that put him on the map was playing Dr. Doug Ross on ER back in the ‘90s. So, has wife Amal ever seen him in the scrubs?
"I don't know if she has [seen ER]," Clooney admitted. "I actually don't know that."
Amal Clooney, 37, is an international human rights attorney who is currently defending Mohamed Nasheed,former President of the Maldives and working on a case being heard in the European Court of Human Rights.
"I don't drill her on my jobs," Clooney said of his wife, who was by his side for Tuesday’s event. "I'm a little more interested in her jobs."
