George Clooney was a young actor when he took a small role in an episode of The golden girls back in 1987, before his career really took off.

Now he is a star on the A-list, two-time Oscar winner and bona fide Hollywood director, but the actor tells 9Honey Celebrity that this was not always the plan.

“No, the plan was just to work,” laughs Clooney.
