George Clooney Talks Love And Relationships

George Clooney Elisabetta Canalis

He is reportedly not perfect! We are aghast.

George Clooney, the coolest man in the world, says that his life of jet planes and blockbuster movies and beautiful women isn't always completely awesome. We clutch our pearls and shriek our grief. "I've had some absolutely great relationships and some not so great relationships," George tells the UK's Mirror newspaper. "I've been in some relationships where I've felt terribly alone. Just because you're with someone, it doesn't mean you're incredibly happy and complete."

George has lately been squiring Italian TV presenter Elisabetta Canalis around the world to his various premieres and festivals (the poor man has three whole movies coming out this fall), and of course in the past he's dated some of the most glamorous ladies in Hollywood. He says that when his relationships end, it's not particularly extraordinary or movie star–y. "I've had some easy and natural, made-sense breakups as well as some rough ones," he told The Mirror. "I deal with them the same way we all do: I'm successful with some and not so successful with others. I don't think my experiences are any different than anybody else's, they've just been amplified a little more." George Clooney's 9 Love Lives

We imagine that George's ex-ladyfriends get some lovely parting gifts when they pack up their toothbrushes and exit the Italian villa—lavish bits of jewelry or his secret pesto recipe, maybe, or locks of Brad Pitt's hair. And we've never heard of women complaining about his behavior; George appears to conduct himself in a very honest manner in his relationships. He's been quite up-front that he doesn't plan to get married again, and it seems obvious that his career comes first. It's refreshing, actually, to see a contented serial monogamist enjoying his fame and super-duper prettiness. Although he doesn't see it that way.

"It's an interesting thing to be able to watch yourself grow older on screen," George said. "I was watching Up In The Air and I thought, 'Jesus, who's the old gray-haired guy?' And it was me." Yeah, that must be rough, being all silver foxy and looking like the reincarnation of Cary Grant and making interesting movies that everybody in the damn world wants to see.
