37 of Donald Trump's Loudest Critics & Supporters

George Clooney may be changing his tune when it comes to running for president.

Clooney previously shut down the idea of running for office, but after the debut of his upcoming film "Suburbicon" at the Venice Film Festival on Saturday, his decision may not be so black and white.

When asked if he would consider running for president, Clooney joked, "Would I like to be the next president? Oh, that sounds like fun."

Clooney went on to take a jab at President Trump. "Can I just say that I'd like anybody to be the next president of the United States. Right away, please," he added.

There's been talk of Clooney leaving Hollywood for a career in politics for years. But in 2015, the actor seemingly shut the door on all of it.

"Who would ever want to live like that?" he said during a press conference for "Our Brand is Crisis." "I'm friends with a lot of those guys and I just think it's hell."

Since Donald Trump announced he would run for office in 2015, Clooney has been one of his most outspoken critics. Just this week he went in on the president, saying, "It becomes increasingly clear how in over his head and incapable this man is of being president of the United States."

However, there is hope for the country in Clooney's eyes. "The good news is that our other institutions — meaning press, finally, and judges and senators — have proven that the country works. There is a check and balance."

"Suburbicon" is set to release this October.
