George Clooney says he wasn’t “fully in love” till he met Amal
George Clooney hadn’t found true love until he met his wife, the human rights attorney Amal Clooney.
The once longtime bachelor, who married Amal in 2014 after dating Amal for less than a year, spoke to the New York Times about how he put his work life before his relationship before meeting his now-wife.
“I had not found the person who filled everything for me that would have completely fallen in love with me,” said the actor. “I’ve dated a lot of really great women, but Amal showed up and all of a sudden it was like, ‘Well, that’s different for me on every level.’ I don’t think I actively said, “I’m just going to work on my career and not have a wife.” That was the story that was told about me, but it wasn’t really the reality. “
While George was associated with many women prior to his relationship with Amal, he had few long-term public romances. George dated model Stacy Keibler from 2011 to 2013 and was associated with Elisabetta Canalis from 2009 to 2011. He also had a long relationship with the British model Lisa Snowdon between 2000 and 2005.
