George Clooney has tied the knot.
Apparently last year George Clooney had “no aspirations” to be married with children, but everything changed when the serial monogamist met human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin a month later. Talk about whirlwind. But goes to show when you know it’s right…it’s right especially when you’ve been around the block a few times!
You have to feel a bit sorry for those long suffering girls who dated him though including Lucy Liu, and let’s not forget his long relationship with Brit model and MTV host Lisa Snowden (who was my favourite because I worked with the partner of her sister who was lovely meaning she must have been too). Can you remember them all? There was Dedee Pfeiffer (sister to the very famous Michelle Pfeiffer) he dates in the 80s, around 1989 Clooney started seeing the now wife of John Travolta, Kelly Preston, the pair even shared custody of a pet pig, Max, who died in 2006… before she married Mad Men’s John Slattery, Talia Balsam actually got Clooney down the aisle in Vegas in 1989. Sadly it wasn’t to be and the pair were divorced in 1993. Post-divorce George was smitten with actress Kimberly Russell. The pair met on a Martini commercial. In 1995 George Clooney arrived at the Emmy Awards with former MTV veejay Karen Duffy. Rumours were rife that the pair were an item. From the years 1996 to 1999 George Clooney was smitten with Celine Balitran, who he met while she was a waitress. In 2001 it was Renée Zellweger’s turn to be the centre of the ‘Who’s Dating George Clooney’ rumour mill. The pair maintained they were ‘just good friends’. Actress Krista Allen, who met Clooney on the set of his film, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind was Clooney’s next love interest. The pair were on-and-off-again from 2002-2006. Lisa Snowden was around the same time. There was another waitress in between Italian beauty Elisabetta Canalis who was his main lady from 2009 to 2011. And then there was pro-wrestler Stacy Keibler whom he met at an Oscars party and only just split from mid last year when she broke it off because he didn’t want children.
And they’re all going to have to endure the media around his wedding ceremony – in fact two wedding ceremonies as Perez Hilton reports…
George Clooney and his wife Amal Alamuddin tied the knot on Saturday in a lavish (and tequila filled) symbolic ceremony at 16th Century Cavalli Palace in Venice, Italy. Or if you believe the Independent, the two tied the knot yesterday in a fairytale ceremony at the seven-star Aman Hotel on the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy.
A glittering flotilla of A-listers were photographed travelling via water taxi to the main event. This morning, the newlyweds headed on a wooden speedboat called “Amore” for the Cipriani hotel, expected to have a post-wedding lunch.
Now that the ceremony is said and done, this couple can live a lifetime of wedded bliss, and dance the night away at their swanky reception… well sort of! This was just a symbolic ceremony, but the real civil ceremony is taking place on Monday, and that’s when George and Amal will legally be man and wife.
