Brief encounters: Why does George Clooney never seem to stay with any woman for more than a few months?

Post by lolo"layla" on Fri Oct 28 2011, 02:20

He is one of the world's biggest stars with a string of awards for his acting.

But he is also well known for the number of different women on his arm over the years, and his inability to settle down. Alison Boshoff consider the many loves in the curious private life of George Clooney.

KELLY PRESTON

STYLE: George met this permed Californian blonde in acting school.

TIMELINE: 14 months between 1987 and 1989.

A TRUE ROMANCE? He gave her a pot-bellied pig called Max for her birthday, but insisted on keeping it when they split.

THEY SAID: George was apparently ‘devastated’ when she left him for actor Charlie Sheen. Kelly went on to marry John Travolta in 1991.

PR RATING: 5/10. They made a cute couple, but marriage was never on the cards.




TALIA BALSAM

STYLE: A sweet-faced brunette actress who romanced him in 1984 when he was only 23. They split in 1987, and then got back together two years later.

TIMELINE: Six years in total.

A TRUE ROMANCE? They were wed in Vegas by an Elvis impersonator in 1989, but split in 1992. Their rows over money are said to have put him off marriage for ever.

HE SAID: ‘I married a terrific girl. That it didn’t work out was mostly my fault.’

PR RATING: 8/10. Not a success, but at least George’s marriage to Balsam raised his profile



KIMBERLY RUSSELL

STYLE: A poised actress with tumbling raven hair. They met on the social scene in Los Angeles.

TIMELINE: 10 months

A TRUE ROMANCE? He dumped her in 1995 (by letter rather than face-to-face) allegedly because he wanted to see other women and take advantage of his blossoming fame after starring in TV drama ER.

After the split Kimberley said: ‘You have to enjoy the ride while it lasts — he’s simply not the marrying kind. The guy is an absolute charmer, but just don’t mention the words “marriage, commitment or babies”.’

HE SAID: ‘I’m sorry. I love you but marriage is not a trip I can take again.’

PR RATING: 8/10. He needed someone gorgeous on his arm — and she certainly fitted the bill.


VENDELA KIRSEBOM

STYLE: A stunning Swedish supermodel, sometimes compared with Grace Kelly.

TIMELINE: Three months.

A TRUE ROMANCE? They met at an Oscars party and he was instantly smitten. Dated in 1996, although it was never serious because he was seeing other women at the time.

THEY SAID: ‘George looked like he was in seventh heaven when they were together.’

PR RATING: 10/10. She had va-va voom, perfect for the image of an emerging superstar.

KAREN DUFFY

STYLE: Spookily similar to George’s ex-wife Talia, this ex-model was an MTV host when they found themselves moving in the same Hollywood circles. Heavy flirtation ensued.

TIMELINE: One month.

A TRUE ROMANCE? Just a handful of dates back in 1996, but they remain good friends — she went on holiday with him last year.

SHE SAID: ‘I could never fall in love with a man with a pet pig, and George’s pig is disgusting.’

PR RATING: 9/10. She helped his lady-killer reputation begin to take hold.

KAREN DUFFY: She helped his lady-killer reputation begin to take hold


CELINE BALITRAN

STYLE: Publicity-shy Celine was a law student when they met in 1996.

TIMELINE: Three years, four months.

A TRUE ROMANCE? They met in a Paris café where she was waitressing. In a few months, she’d moved into his LA house. There were problems, among them his preference for spending time with his male friends. They split in 1999.

HE SAID: ‘Honey, it’s no picnic dating me.’

PR RATING: 8/10. A serious young woman who polished his image as more than just beefcake.

TRAYLOR HOWARD

STYLE: A blonde sweetheart who starred in the film comedy Me Myself and Irene.

TIMELINE: One month.

A TRUE ROMANCE? They zoomed round Hollywood on his Harley Davidson in 2000, but he was also linked to model Angie Everhart.

THEY SAID: ‘Traylor knows about George’s way with women but she wants to be the one to make him settle down.’

PR RATING: 7/10. This relationship appeared to be another notch on his bedpost.

TRAYLOR HOWARD: This relationship appeared to be another notch on his bedpost


MARIELLA FROSTRUP

STYLE: Husky-voiced British broadcaster, professional blonde and world-class flirt.

TIMELINE: Not even a month.

A TRUE ROMANCE? They reportedly met in a Cannes hotel bar in 1999 and were ‘inseparable’ for the next three days. Since their fling, which she’s denied, they’ve remained friends. He is godfather to her two children.

SHE SAID: ‘I am so not George’s type. He goes for tall brunettes, I’m a blonde midget.’

PR RATING: 10/10. She made George look fun, and he gave her a story to dine out on for the next 20 years.

MARIELLA FROSTRUP: She made George look fun, and he gave her a story to dine out on for the next 20 years


LISA SNOWDON

STYLE: A British model with impossibly long legs, a shiny sheet of brown hair, and a reputation as a party-loving ‘man’s woman’.

TIMELINE: 5 years on and off.

A TRUE ROMANCE? They met in Spain on the set of a Martini commercial in 2000, and an unconventional liaison ensued.

There was never any discussion about her moving into his Los Angeles mansion, let alone becoming Mrs Clooney, and the final three years were angst-filled.

She was seen sobbing at the Cannes film festival when rumours that she had been dumped reached her ears. In the end, though, she became fed up and chucked him herself.

SHE SAID: ‘Work almost totally dried up. People saw me living a new life and thought I wouldn’t be interested in modelling again.’

PR RATING: 10/10. The perfect consort, and someone to walk the red carpet with for hit films Ocean’s Eleven and Twelve.

RENEE ZELLWEGER

STYLE: Shy, down-to-earth actress Renee has always tried to keep her private life as quiet as possible, so she’s not a typical George woman.

TIMELINE: One month altogether, though they’ve been linked several times.

A TRUE ROMANCE? They were first linked romantically at the end of 2001, and were supposed to be dating again in 2003, when they were spotted dining together. In 2006, the pair were seen having dinner in a Los Angeles hotel. Asked if they had dated, Clooney replied: ‘A little bit.’

SHE SAID: ‘Actually, we are old friends.’

PR RATING: 7/10. The speculation hurt nobody, but that still couldn’t turn their 2008 American football film Leatherheads into a hit.

KRISTA ALLEN

STYLE: A racy, brunette bombshell who starred in Baywatch and the U.S. soap, Days Of Our Lives.

TIMELINE: Nine months.

A TRUE ROMANCE? They were an item — on and off — between 2002 and 2004, when George was also dating Lisa Snowdon. Then they dated again in 2006 when he was between girlfriends, and there was yet another reunion in 2008.

THEY SAY: ‘There’s something about Krista that brings him back.’

PR RATING: 9/10. How better to assert his red-blooded credentials than a romance with a saucy star?

SARAH LARSON

STYLE: A fun-loving Las Vegas cocktail waitress, she started dating him in 2007.

TIMELINE: 11 months.

A TRUE ROMANCE? Not really; it was over in June 2008 — just as she appeared on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar. She had hoped for more — after all, he’d taken her to the Oscars.

THEY SAID: ‘She thought they were getting married. Instead, she got dumped. She’s really upset. Devastated.’

PR RATING: 5/10. Sarah was pretty enough to be a good match for George, but too optimistic about ‘changing’ him.

SARAH LARSON: Sarah was pretty enough to be a good match for George, but too optimistic about 'changing' him

ELISABETTA CANALIS

STYLE: Yet another gorgeous, willowy brunette, she was a successful Italian model and MTV presenter before she met George in 2009.

TIMELINE: 24 months.

A TRUE ROMANCE? They dated until June 2011 when she gave an indiscreet interview about their future prospects. Said to have attended Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s bunga bunga parties, which she denies.

SHE SAID: ‘I have always seen the end of my relationships as a personal failure. There is nothing ever pretty in saying goodbye.’

PR RATING: 5/10. She was faintly bonkers, while he became worthier than ever, making arty films like The Men Who Stare at Goats.

STYLE: Known as the Legs of WWE (an American professional wrestling organisation) in honour of her 42in pins, Stacy is a model-turned-wrestling star.

TIMELINE: Two months and counting.

A TRUE ROMANCE? Too soon to say.

PR RATING: 7/10. She’s put his face in the news once more — just as his political thriller The Ides Of March hits the cinemas.

Yawn! Big Yawn!

The only thing any of these gals can count on is that eventually George will say, "Next!"

True Lorna and Stacy will know have her name added to her list the only uncertain thing is how long will she last? I don't think it's going to be too long cause George won't want another girl around a couple of years after just getting rid of Eli. They did forget a couple too!

But to have a stable relationship should get involved more, or find the girl while he agrees to stay with his way of living.

Exactly
And he knows that (a relationship is hard work)
I turly wish him to find his soulmate who puts up with him.
But first he has to reconsider his choices/type of woman. Soon Stacy will be history too. She is pretty (without any doubt) but I can hear the biological clock ticking. She once said, she wants to be a mom. And if you have this feeling I am sure you don´t change your mind/feelings - not even - for a George Clooney

Since George is not interested in marriage/family, Stacy is just wasting her time with him. Better start looking around soon, honey, because time is not on your side. Errrr

Thanks lolo for the article on G's girlfriends. Let's see. he dated 4 blondes, 7 brunettes and 2 women with long legs. It seems he isn't partial to any one type but has a wide range of preferences.

There may be hope for us after all. He may at some point opt for an average size, middle age woman. Don't give up hope ladies LOL

Perhaps she doesn't feel it's a waste of time. After all, she gets to travel in charming company, meet lots of "real" celebrities, gets her name and face out there for all to see, and has fun besides.
She's raised her "spokesman's" fee, and will probably be able to pad her bank account considerably. She's making money for her future. When this is over, she'll be considerably richer, will continue her D-list career for a while, till she meets her "Mr. Right", then retire and have he ultimate dream, stay at home mom. Then when kids are in school, she'll revive her career, in some fashion, and again trade on her past successes - professional cheerleader, wrestler, actress, spokesperson, or even GC's ex. Time is never wasted, unless you wish it to be.

I know Cindy, I was just being facetious! As soon as G sees a wrinkle, he's gone. Until he gets a few more wrinkles himself, he would opt for arm candy.

Well George is 50 and says he's "hafway there." So you're not middle-aged yet.
