Gone are the days when George Clooney was hailed as one of Hollywood’s hottest playboys. After his marriage to Talia Balsam ended, he started dating random women, whereupon he swore never to try again, but he didn’t know that a certain Lebanese-British lawyer named Amal Alamuddin would come into his life and give him a lot of reasons to break his word.
George made Amal his wife in 2014, and the rest is history. Years have passed, and the union of Amal and Clooney gives us some goals each year. They are the parents of twins Ella and Alexander Clooney. To celebrate his retirement from his pimping ship, we take a look at George Clooney’s list of ex-girlfriends in chronological order.

Clooney met the waitress Celine Balitran in 1996 in Paris and fell in love with her, where he shot “The Peacemaker”. Balitran, then a law student, followed him to L.A., and for a moment many thought they would take the relationship to the next level, but in 1999 it all ended.

8. Sarah Larson, 2007 – 2008
Clooney started a romance with another waitress in 2007, this time with cocktail waitress Sarah Larson, who is also a former model. They had met at Clooney’s birthday party, where they danced coquettishly and were, as she said, “silly”. She became the first lady who would ever take Clooney to the Oscars, but unfortunately, their romance was short-lived. After their separation, Larson confessed to Hello Magazine that she would miss Clooney very much. They’ve remained friends ever since.
9. Elisabetta Canalis, 2009 – 2011
The Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis received her play from the Hollywood hit from 2009 to 2011. The cameras followed her, including vacation trips to Hawaii. They made their debut on the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival and attended two Oscar ceremonies together. Their separation was difficult, as they told in a statement about their representatives. They said that the reason was “personal needs”.
10. George Clooney and Stacy Keibler, 2011 – 2013
During an Oscar party, Clooney met former professional wrestler Stacy Keibler, with whom they soon met. In their first year together, Clooney and Keibler seemed inseparable, but the tight schedules soon began to weigh on their love. There were reports that the reason for the separation in 2013 was that Keibler wanted children and Clooney did not. However, another report from a source at ABC News exposed the allegations.
11. George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin 2013 – Present
In October 2013, George began meeting Amal Alamuddin, who was then practicing as a lawyer in London. Perhaps it was her brilliance that attracted him. Amal has worked for high-profile names like WikiLeaks founder Yulian Assange and former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko. Professionally, she was not like Clooney’s former girls, and he was in love enough to make her his wife.
