Eternal bachelor, George Clooney
A long time ago in 1988, before George Clooney’ was famous or had a reputation, he was dating actress Kelly Preston. The relationship between the two future Hollywood stars was pretty serious, not just because the two moved in together, but because George gave Kelly a very special gift to symbolise their love, a pig named Max. Sadly for George Kelly didn't stick around too long, but happily when she left he got to keep the pig! Indeed whilst some may think George has a problem with commitment, he stayed loyal to Max the pig for nearly 20 years, until his death in 2006. Kelly of course moved on as well and is now married to John Travolta.
After his split with Kelly, George did what would now be unthinkable, he got married. The first and only Mrs Clooney so far was actress Talia Balsam. Talia was married to George between 1989 and 1993 before George realised that marriage wasn’t for him. After the split Talia moved on to ‘Mad Men’ star John Slattery whom she also played the onscreen wife of. The couple have been together since 1998 and have one son, Harry. After his marriage broke up George began a relationship with actress Kimberly Russell, whom he had met on the set of a martini commercial shoot. This relationship would soon dry up, leaving the pair to go their separate ways. The actress has now reportedly now been married to cameraman Micheal Bonewitz since 2000.
