The 51-year-old actor has been dating the 32-year-old former wrestler since August 2011, spending the summer together at his home in Lake Como, Italy where they were joined by his parents but the couple have called time on their relationship because George doesn't want to settle down.

"Stacy said George wants to be on his own again and has no intention of getting married. She hoped they would be together long-term. It was a big breakthrough to spend time with his parents. But over the last few weeks George has pulled away from her," a source told The Sun.

George Clooney Doesn’t Demand Glamorous Girlfriend

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Dating, Red Carpet, Style,

Stacey Keibler and George ClooneyGeorge Clooney "doesn't care"if his girlfriend dresses up or not. The Descendants actor is dating former wrestler Stacey Keibler, and although she's frequently seen wearing glamorous creations to red carpet events, George is equally attracted to her when she's in ordinary clothes.

"George is always happy with everything that I wear. He doesn't care whether I'm dressed up or down. I could never be the girl that has to put my hair and make up on and do my hair before I go out the house," Stacey told USmagazine.com.

However, Stacey, 32, admitted she enjoyed picking her dress for the Oscars in February, for which she settled on a floor-length gold Marchesa gown with matching high heeled sandals: "I've always loved fashion when it comes to fashion, I've definitely evolved, and I've got to work with some amazing designers. I never feel pressure to dress a certain way, but it was such a fun experience to go to fashion week and see a dress and try it on and then wear it to the Oscars, I'm extremely grateful for that."

While Stacey is not particular about the clothes she wears, she adheres to a rigorous workout regime to ensure she stays in shape:

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Television, Charity, Kind Acts,

George ClooneyGeorge Clooney has compared himself to Elizabeth Taylor.

The Ides of March actor was arrested for civil disobedience in Washington last week alongside his journalist father Nick and other protesters after a demonstration outside the Sudanese Embassy and George says he learned from an early age that celebrities are more newsworthy than humanitarian crises.

"I saw my father in the 1970s doing really good stories and then getting bumped because there was a Liz Taylor story that was going to be out. And the story that he did that had real some social value was going to get bumped. I said to my dad, 'Remember how you used to get all your stories bumped by Liz Taylor or something happened in Hollywood?' And he said, 'Yes.' I said, 'Well, let's go to Darfur. And you be the newsman and I'll be Liz Taylor and let's get it on the air.' And he said, 'OK,'" he told Fox News on Sunday.

George is trying to draw attention to the accusation that Sudan's president, Omar al-Bashir, is provoking a humanitarian crisis and blocking food and aid from entering the Nuba Mountains from South Sudan and admitted he had some close calls when he travelled to the country to film the atrocities.

George Clooney: I don’t Care People Think I’m Gay

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Dating, Rumors,

George Clooney and Stacy Keibler at the OscarsGeorge Clooney "doesn't give a s**t" if people think he is gay.

The Descendants star - who is currently dating ex-wrestler Stacy Keibler - is "very happy" with his private life and laughs it off when people say he's homosexual, but he would never get angry about the rumors for fear of giving an impression that there's something wrong with being gay.

"I think it's funny, but the last thing you'll ever see me do is jump up and down, saying, 'These are lies!' That would be unfair and unkind to my good friends in the gay community. I'm not going to let anyone make it seem like being gay is a bad thing. My private life is private, and I'm very happy in it. Who does it hurt if someone thinks I'm gay? I'll be long dead and there will still be people who say I was gay. I don't give a s**t."

The 50-year-old actor believes one day people will be "embarrassed" to have been against marriage equality because it will seem "archaic" in the next generation:

George Clooney promoting 'Syriana'George Clooney considered killing himself six years ago. The Ides of March actor injured himself while filming spy thriller Syriana in 2005, and he was so racked with pain as a result of the spinal condition that he thought about ending his life.

"I started to think, 'I may have to do something drastic about this.' I was in a hospital bed unable to move, having these headaches where it feels like you're having a stroke. You don't want to leave a mess, so go in the garage, go in the car, start the engine. I was in a place where I was trying to figure out how to survive."

The 50-year-old actor - who is dating former wrestler Stacy Keibler - also spoke about losing his virginity "too young" at the age of 16, and admitted he thinks he had his first orgasm when he was "six or seven" years old: "I was young, very young, too young. I believe it [my first orgasm] was while climbing a rope when I was six or seven years old. I mean, nothing came out, but all the other elements were there. I remember getting to the top of the rope, hanging off the rope, and going, 'Oh, my God, this feels great!'"

George Clooney 4th of July Explosion

Sometimes, it’s not so great to be a celebrity (just ask Tiger Woods). While enjoying the 4th of July holiday weekend in Italy with his girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis, Uma Thurman and others, movie star nearly became a Roman candle.

As the beautiful people lounged around on a boat floating on Lake Como to watch fireworks explode overhead, one gunpowder creation came careening toward the boat to send the occupants of the vessel into a flurry of motion. The boat was roughly jostled (and lit up just like the 4th of July) during the incident. So far, there’s no word on any injuries which might have occurred.
