George Clooney is terrified he is going bald.
The 46-year-old actor fears his successful Hollywood career will be doomed once his grey locks start to thin out.
He told Eve magazine: "My career will plummet. All careers do. So I am going to enjoy this while it's going on. I've got good screen hair so I must make the most of it before it falls out."
Clooney isn't the first male celebrity to reveal their hair troubles.
David Beckham has previously admitted he was shocked when he discovered he was going grey, but revealed Clooney's silver fox image allowed him to accept it.
The 32-year-old soccer star said: "I've noticed a bit of grey, but as long as it's George Clooney grey I don't mind. George is one of the most handsome men in the world."
Meanwhile, Clooney - who is dating waitress Sarah Larson - says he has learnt to live with the trappings of fame.
He said: "I am a public figure and if I walk out of a brothel with a hooker on my arm, then I deserve what is coming to me."
