With news that professional bachelor George Clooney is now engaged to lawyer Amal Alamuddin we thought it only appropriate to relive the glory days of all the famous women he’s allegedly nailed over the years. It’s the end of an era, folks.
I’m not sure what’s more surprising, the fact that Clooney is actually engaged, or the fact that he is engaged to a woman most people have never heard of before. Probably the former.
Previous hookup histories on Guyism.
Kelly Preston (1987-1989)
Preston and Clooney dated for two years. He was fresh off his infamous stint on The Facts of Life. After the relationship ended she moved on to Charlie Sheen, and then John Travolta. Then gave up.
Talia Balsam (1989-1993)
Still not fully understanding the powers he possessed, Clooney actually married Talia Balsam, an actress best known now for playing Mona Sterling on Mad Men. After the marriage ended Clooney vowed to never wed again.
Karen Duffy & Kimberly Russell (1995)
Having figured out that a single George Clooney is a great George Clooney, he hooked up with model/actress/VJ Duff and former Head of the Class star Kimberly Russell in the same year. The ER mystique of Clooney is starting to set it.
Fully entrenched as the biggest heartthrob on TV, Clooney scores his biggest catch hooking up with supermodel Vendela, best known to most as a Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue model.
Lucy Liu (2000)
Amazingly, Clooney took a brief break from dating celebrity women during his last two-plus years on ER, just dating a French waitress and law student named Celine Balitranbut. Once that ended it was Lucy Liu’s turn.
Lisa Snowdon (2000-2005)
Snowden, an English model and TV personality, holds the record for the most years spent alongside Clooney. Though as you will see below, it wasn’t always exclusive.
Krista Allen (2002-2004)
The legendary Krista Allen of Emmanuelle, Days of Our Lives, and Baywatch Hawaii fame spent a couple of years on George’s arm. The powers of Clooney were strong here.
Sarah Larson (2007-2008)
Before dating Clooney, Larson was a contestant on reality TV show Fear Factor. After dating him, she signed with a modeling agency and was named one of People magazine’s 100 Most Beautiful People of 2008.
Elisabetta Canalis (2009-2011)
Before dating Clooney, Canalis was mostly only known in Europe. After dating him she appeared on the Dancing With The Stars. Then after they broke up she dated Steve-O.
Stacy Keibler (2011-2013)
Stepping his game up once again, Clooney dated former WWE Diva Stacy Keibler. We surmised at the time that it wouldn’t last, and to the surprise of no one, it didn’t.
Other less-substantiated alleged flings…
Elizabeth Daily, Mariella Frostrup, Teri Hatcher, Traylor Howard, Pink, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Dedee Pfeiffer, Charlize Theron, Renee Zellweger
And now he’s engaged to this woman…
(Skip to 4-minute mark.)
This is a prank, right? Good one, George. You got us all.
