His fan-favorite credits include One Fine Day, The Peacemaker, The Perfect Storm, and The Descendants.

George Clooney and Amal Clooney's marriage!
Clooney and Amal's relationship is what most called "a fairy tale" romance." Before stumbling upon each other in 2013 in Lake Como, Italy, Clooney was a longtime bachelor. Shortly after their first meeting in July 2013, Clooney and Amal sparked dating rumors in October as the attractive pair were spotted strolling arms in arms in London.

"There is no question that having Amal in my life changed everything for me," the Oscar winner once said. You could call Clooney's relationship with Amal a whirlwind affair as the pair got engaged within a year of having known each other in April 2014. But unlike most whirlwind romances in Hollywood, that have ended with nasty breakups, we, for one thing, are certain that Leatherheads actor and Amal are an endgame.
"We never talked about marriage when we were dating, and I asked her out of the blue," Clooney reveals. Sharing the deets of the proposal, The Monuments Men star revealed he was on his knees for twenty minutes before Amal gave him a yes.

George Clooney's dating history!
Before finding a perfect partner in the Lebanese-British Barrister, the ER alum was quite the philander. Clooney passionately dated actress Kelly Preston for two years in 1987. "The most important thing in my life is my relationship with Kelly," a young Clooney had said back then. Clooney bought a pig named Max for Preston as a gift, but following their split, Max became a lifelong companion to Clooney.

The Syriana actor married actress Talia Balsam in 1989 and got divorced in 1993. The Oscar winner was never the one to jump from one relationship to another. Following his brief marriage with Balsam, Clooney was single for almost three years before he met French law student Celine Balitran in 1996. The pair's romance fizzled out in 1999. Clooney then had an on-and-off relationship with model Lisa Snowdon from 2000 to 2005, in between which the ER star also romanced actress Krista Allen.
The two-time Oscar winner continued to have insignificant relationships with Sarah Larson, who he dated for a year, Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis, who George dated for almost two years, and his last flame before Amal, Stacy Keibler. Clooney once joked how he had the longest relationship with his pig pet Max, who died in 2012.
