Famous actor and one of the sexiest men in Hollywood George Clooney and his Italian model girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis broke out after two years of relationship. The couple said in their statement: “We are not together anymore. It’s very difficult and very personal, and we hope everyone can respect our privacy.”

Later Elisabetta Canalis’ representative commented on the break up: “It is a very personal and sad matter, and Elisabetta wants it to remain that way. She will be taking some time … and then will face the press. She has not authorised me to say when the split happened.”

Clooney’s strong unwillingness to get married may have become the reason for the end of relationship of the couple. The actor has bees married once. In 1989 he tied the knot with the actress Talia Balsam, but the marriage lasted only four years.

Clooney said in his interview with Piers Morgan this January: “I was married, so I gave it a shot.” He also declared that he doesn’t want to become a father unlike his old friend Brad Pitt. ‘I couldn’t do what Brad and Angie are doing,’ he said.

“I wouldn’t have the patience or dedication you need to take care of a family. I admire those qualities in other people but it’s not for me. If I need to surround myself with children and feel like I have this big extended family, I can always call Brad and Angie and ask them to stay with me, just to remind me why I’m so happy.”

Canalis just on the contrary is dreaming of wedding and having kids. The 32-year-old told Italian model and actress told in her interview to magazine Chi: “I am a firm believer in marriage. In the future I will be married. But for the time being I am as happy as I am, I don’t need anything to confirm how happy I am.”

So nothing indicated that the relations between Clooney and Canalis were in trouble. Earlier Elizabetta said:  “I am very happy at the moment – thanks to my man and my fairytale is continuing. We are a couple that never gets bored.”

Clooney continues to be one of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood. After his marriage with Talia Balsam he dated the Las Vegas cocktail waitress Lawson, the actress Renée Zellweger and British TV presenter Lisa Snowdon. And neither of these beautiful women managed to settle Clooney down.

Clooney is known to have bet several times that he would never marry again and will not have kids. Michelle Pfeiffer and Nicole Kidman have already lost great sums to him. The question is will somebody bet on Clooney’s marriage once again?

At the same time Canalis is not sitting at home and crying. She was noticed while flirting with NBA star (and single dad) Dwyane Wade at a fashion show Tuesday afternoon (just several hours before the statement about her breakup woth Clooney was announced). [via The Daily Mail]
