Washington: Actor George Clooney has revealed that he had made many mistakes in his career but has always bounced back from them.

Clooney, 50, believes that it’s all because of the ‘terrible’ work he did that he is now a successful actor.

“I’ve made mistakes in my career. I’ve made some terrible TV series and been terrible in them. I’ve been in terrible films, and when a film of mine fails I just want to go and hide under a rock,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

“I’ve made mistakes in judgement and I’ve failed many, many times.

“I’ve had a lot of bumps and turns in my road. But the trick is how well you bounce back. That’s true in the movie business and it’s true in life,” he added.

However, Clooney believes that to overcome the failure, one must face it.

“What’s my secret to success? The test is how you deal with it when everything goes wrong. It’s the easiest thing in the word to handle your career when it’s going well. When it’s not going well, that’s the important time,” he told HELLO! Magazine.
