Although he's gained a reputation as Hollywood's playboy, George Clooney hasn't totally ruled out the idea of one day settling down for good.
Clooney's been married before, and as he told Piers Morgan on "Piers Morgan Tonight" last year, considering that union ended in 1993 "should show you how good I was at it."
These days, however, it sounds like Clooney is ever so slightly changing his tune.
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Clooney says he hasn't ruled out getting hitched once again - although, he admits, "I don't even think about it, really."
Or, at least, he's not going to share if he does. The 50-year-old Oscar nominee is currently attached to Stacy Keibler, whom is often seen at his side at red carpet events, but he remains tight-lipped about their relationship. "There is so little in my life that is private," he explained.
One curtain he was willing to pull back revealed that yes, he does suffer from loneliness, just like anyone else.
"Anyone would be lying if they said they didn't get lonely at times," he explains to THR. "The loneliest you will get is in the most public of arenas: You will go to a place and end up in the smallest compartment possible, because it's a distraction to everybody, and you end up not getting to enjoy it like everybody else."
And yet, Clooney says, "I have been infinitely more alone in a bad relationship; there's nothing more isolating. I have been in places in my life where that has existed."
Players don't get married...
George Clooney is gross! He's slept with half of Hollywood. I don't want sloppy seconds!
jennygirl and Listen!
Just because George isn't with you two sweat hogs, don't take your anger out on me. Oh, have a nice day.
George clooneys openly gay marriage?
Okay, kids. Time to get off the playground and back to your rooms. George Clooney is one of the more decent people who are subject to the public eye. A gentleman. You clowns are just jealous 'cause he gets the girl everytime. G-I-R-L.
Since when has George Clooney EVER been open to marriage? He's been very vocal about NEVER getting married. Nice try George. LOL!
Hey George you big stud... take me to bed or lose me forever!
I think you're all nuts. Leave the guy alone. Get a life of your own instead of running down others.
The evolution of George Clooney- Really bad actor who makes really bad films -> One of the dumbest "star" politicos --> Open to Marriage. What's next for George? Any cliche to remain relevant in a world that hasn't seen one of his movies in over a decade.
But he's gay tho ...
George, slap out of it! You get more trim than any man on the planet. Forget the marriage BS and remember this: pre-nup...
Dear CNN writers:
Please learn grammar or pay someone who knows it already, or should I say, since you seem to think "whom" is a subject pronoun, pay someone whom knows it already.
LOL, dangle a fish out, watch the seals clap and bark. He's gonna make more money pretending to be available than he will by seeming unattainable. I respect his marketing instinct.
he's stupid if he lets stacy get away from him,marriage or not!
if you want to be happy, george, STAY SINGLE!!!!!!!
Of course he is open to marriage. More and more states across the nation are legalizing gay marriage now.
awww....poor miss 'john'. dont some of you single gals out there want her? she sounds a little (ok, very) angry, but stilll sincere. bless her heart.
Well, George...I will make the ultimate sacrifice and give my single life up just for you.
The ladies know he is a great guy, you never hear anything bad about him from any of the girls he has been with over the years. I'm sure he is up front with them regarding his intentions and just wants to go with the flow.
Georgie will be ready when he meets ME! ;-)
oh pam, you sound like ur happy already.
and good for you about that!
At first I didn't see the 'to' and thought, 'I thought that was Newt'.
He doesn't have any kids, so by not getting married, he's not going to get divorced, either. It's difficuly for ubercelebrities to meet anyone they are really compatable with. Just look at all of the award shows, the same people all the time, they all stay in their little bubble, sort of like being in High School.
I love clooney so much, he is a man of integrity. But my advice for him is that the earlier the better he settles down with another woman of his choice.
Sounds a little self-absorbed if you ask me. Marriage takes work. He didn't want to work at it.
Now the wrinkles are starting to show and he knows he's running out of time. He'll marry a woman, have a couple of kids, and he'll be dead (or feel like it) by the time they're in high school. He'll never live to see his grandchildren should he have any.
These Hollywood celebs are so annoying. I guess if we learn anything from them it's that money and good looks do not buy happiness.
but isnt it true that he's really into men?! anyways who really cares?!
A washed up actor dating a washed-up B-movie actress and former female professional wrestler who people forgot existed 10 years ago. Seems appropriate
Jack Nicholson has been living like this for years, and it hasn't hurt his career any.
and thats why he's a happy, happy man....let it be a lesson to all the guys out there.
George, you are very intelligent,very handsome, and very talented. I admire you're acting and I am glad that you have branched out into directing and other areas of film making. You're still my favorite actor and I believe that you have made your best film yet, "The Descendents." I hope you get the Oscar for Best Actor and other awards.
george says he's open to marriage because that's his key to keeping up the continual flow of good-looking women. when he dumps her, he can say, "nope, she wasn't the ONE, but i'm still open to marriage." then the next dumb beautiful woman thinks she just MIGHT be special enough for the great george clooney, but nope! she's not the one either.
Who cares! If someone replies with why are you even reading this? I didn't...saw the headlines and felt the need to say WHO CARES?
With all these states passing gay marriage, it shouldn't be too long before he can get married again.
aww, poor dan. dont be mad! things may pick up for you. some day. : (
Oh how much better the world is now that George is open to marriage. LOL....who cares?!!!!!
Bobby brown wants to marry george. he is looking for a white man with money
Bobby Brown is to blame for George Clooney's decline in dates. Bobby has more SWAG
And as for you who believe he is gay... stop your jealous rants... your "gaydar" is way off on that one.
I understand George's situation totally, he is lives in a glass cage and is condemned for every move he makes. But no one sees the fact that every person in his life personally or professionally is going to try to use him for their own gain. He is a very quiet soul, but no one will allow him to be himself totally. He hones his craft to suit the masses but unlike some he cannot go home at 5pm and have a normal life outside the job.
This guy is a modern day Rock Hudson. He's gay and hiding behind arm candy. It'll come out some day.
His career depends on him keeping up this image of a good looking straight man. He can't commit to women as I think he uses them for image and career builders. I think he prefers men but he may never open up about it and continue his life at this level as long as he finds success. Time will tell. He won't marry. Like I said... Women are accessories for him.
Sad! That you are! Slap nutz!
Whitney called and she is happy smoking crack in hell !
Whitney is effen satan right now. she is riding his big fat d!ck while she smokes crack. Flim at 4 ! the crack wh0re rides the big red trunk
MAY YOUR DAYS GROW SAD! Well! THEY MUST BE SINCE YOU HAD NOTHING NICE TO SAY ABOUT WHITNEY! PEOPLE LIKE YOU SHOULD BE SENT OUT TO WAR ZONE! FRONT LINE!
PONY DICK! MAY YOUR DAYS GROW SAD! Well! THEY MUST BE SINCE YOU HAD NOTHING NICE TO SAY ABOUT WHITNEY! PEOPLE LIKE YOU SHOULD BE SENT OUT TO WAR ZONE! FRONT LINE!
I think George doesn't want to marry again because fears another divorce. He's a good guy and he knows how challenging marriage can be. He wants to be 100% sure he marries the right woman for him. More people should approach marriage with such intelligent caution. Maybe there would be fewer divorces.
dont forget me boys@coolbreeze and sokman! i would like to watch n video tape it ! i'll watch it while i'm alone n want to rub one out cuz women n wh0res hates me
Pony Dick! Who Do YOU THINK YOU ARE TO SAY AN EVIL THINGS ABOUT WHITNEY HOUSTON! May YOU ROT IN HELL FOR YOUR EVIL WAY! YOU ARE SO MESSED UP! LET HER REST IN PEACE!
if he doesn't want u coolbreeze, i sure will bend over for u to put it in. grabs my nuts while ur at it
i wonder if he would bend over for me. I come on blogs to pick up wh;ores. maybe he is desperate as me
Don't do it.... Once is enough. Why have the same cereal day after day after day, when you can have the variety pack?
Have a nice day....
because he's getting old. the box of cereal is getting empty.
George is totally devoted and in love with one person, George.
He's looking for someone to change his diapers.
YOU HAVE A LOVELY GIRLFRIEND.........RUN WITH IT.CLOONEY WONT GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT
Clooney take it from and OLD BIRD...your not getting any younger...why not get married and have a few kids while you still can.......THAT IS THE BEST THING IN LIFE...NOT PARTYING AND MATERIAL THINGS...FAMILY IS EVERYTHING.............JUST SAYIN OLD BOY
I hope you find love, George
Its ok your probably better off alone. when it comes to having fun. this way you dont have to explain yourself.
This one goes out to Whitney and Bobby
Huh, he has continually always said he will NEVER re-marry, said there is no point in it because he would just end up divorced again, now he's changing his tune? Better stick to his guns, for he would end up divorced again, no doubt abouth that. Everyone knows how difficult and unhappy marriages can be, very few are good, all the marrieds I know are miserable, I've been happily unmarried to a guy for 13 years and it shall stay that way, why ruin a good thing?
I enjoy seeing George act...I think he would be a looser as a partner...he is too 'into George'....
Yep, just like Warren Beatty. Famous playboy until he realizes he has a limited amount of time. Then it's whoops! Better get on the procreation before I'm dead. Now you've got 30 selfish declining years to bring up baby.
OR, like Warren Beatty, until he finds the RIGHT WOMAN! Warren and Annette are the perfect example of two people that nobody ever thought would settle down, until they literally locked eyes for the first time. I think George has aged quite a bit over the past couple of years, but after hearing about his health problems since he did "Syriana", plus the malaria he contracted in Africa last year, I understand. I have a long-standing injury that causes me pain 24/7 and believe me, it's draining. Especially if you are determined not to use drugs as a crutch. I hope George finds someone like Warren found Annette...maybe it really is Staci, maybe not. Only time will tell...
Look forward to the same diatribe when Jennifer Aniston's name comes up. Until he actually fathers children, he is being completely responsible thing. And who cares if he's too into himself? He again is not hurting anyone by doing it, and he has a lot better reasons to be into himself than most people, the first being that it has worked out really well.
So typical of the gay comments, probably from a bunch of losers who can never hope to look like George at 50 years old – or at ANY age....George Clooney is a gorgeous man, getting better with age....and at least he's honest about marriage, rather than having a divorce every couple of years like many celebrities.....
Georgie – hope you find the woman of your dreams – too bad it ain't ME!!
No he is not?
Hes the one you have fun with but not the one you marry. Do have to say he is getting more attractive as he gets older.
I so agree with you. i like him more now than i did 10 years ago :)

I'm an MBA student and I need a few more responses. Thank you
Wow..it's just amazing the jealousy that's on this blog. You people are pathetic and your jealous nature shows. How many of you have guts and a55e5 hanging to the floor?
Right along with you, pony dick (or is it pencil dick?)
go on cloony dont mind does freakin jealosy....
Yeah, now that he's becoming an old man, and he needs viagara, he's losing his Playboy image.
George must have been watching Two and a Half Men. The old sympathy ploy of saying he's lonely sounds like a Charlie Harper strategy. Chimichunga!
Well stop the presses! Oh wait, they already did.
I don't get the attraction.
I agree, I don't get it. Plus he is a very old looking 50, and not just his hair, his face is falling, too much alcohol, he is not aging well at all, he almost looks as old as his dad.
I don't either.
Great, more for me! [I suspect you do not see the attraction of Cary Grant either...]
lol! Of course he says he's open to marriage. That's how he keeps the ladies hanging on as long as they do. He keeps them hoping for something that he knows is never going to happen. And it takes them a while to figure it out. As the song says, nice work if you can get it.
he's been holding out for someone taller than him with good genes – Stacey could be "it" :)
Oh come on, everyone can see that Stacy is just a Clooney groupie.
take ur pick...u have 14 states where gays can marry now Georgie.
Sure he's open to marriage, as long as it's not him getting married.
George realizes he's getting old and maynot be able to attract the young girls anymore. Saw him in Washington yrs ago and I was not impresssed. Short and pasty looking. Totally blew my fantasy.
Heck, I don't care, so long as he still has THE VOICE. Ooooohhh...
I have news for you, all celebrities are short and pasty looking in real life. That's why they all have makeup artist, lighting, plastic surgery, and photo shop. I once sat next to a super model on an airplane, and no one even noticed her because in real life she looks like a horse. Too much hype about celebrities nowadays.
Come on Cloon-tang don't wuss out now!
A commitment phobic waking up? Hope it works. But never heard of it sticking without help. Good luck to ya George. Hope you find the happiness your looking for.
George, if you ever feel lonely this Texas gal will give you some Southern Lovin'
I understand you too George. Go and a hug a man... don't be shy about it!
I understand, George. Come here, I'll give you a hug. haha
LOL the line forms behind me, Blondefly!
I wouldn't waste your time w/George. He'll wine ya, dine ya, use ya, then toss ya away like all his other girls.
What's wrong with that.
Why does anyone care about his reproductive and/or mating habits. That's his own business. He's not a zoo animal.
Some of us know that George has an Italian male partner at his villa in Italy but I guess to keep the masses happy, doesn't bother me either way, he's a great guy.
JaneIre: LOL. Most artists are bi anyway... I wouldn't mind sharing him with a girl, especially if she were halfway across the world...
I think he's just:
1. Not into women/lives in the closet
2. afraid of commitment/wants to be alone
3. a jerk who uses women
4. looking for someone he will never find
He is lying to his fans about being straigh.
I'm no Clooney fan, but I don't understand how he "uses" women as some suggest on here. It couldn't be more plain that he's a carefree bachelor who shies away from marriage. He picks a gal, has her on his arm for a while, she gets famous and gets to enjoy all the perks of a celebrity boyfriend, and then it's over. He never promised anything and delivered some pretty cool parting gifts.
@ Blondie: Read the article again. There was nothing that mentioned about his reproductive and/or mating habits. So, I guess you're the only one who's interested.
