It’s no secret that George Clooney, People magazine‘s once twice voted sexiest man alive has vowed that he will never marry again after his failed marriage between himself and Hollywood actress, Talia Balsam. This might be the clue needed in understanding why the Hollywood hunk who keeps residence in Lake Como, Italy made a joint announcement with Italian actress and model Elisabetta Canalis today that their relationship after 2 years has come to a close.
latimesblog: “We are not together anymore,” they said. “It’s very difficult and very personal, and we hope everyone can respect our privacy.”
Model-actress Canalis, 32, told Italian magazine Chi recently that she is a firm believer in marriage; Clooney, 50, had emphasized in January that he would never marry again. The couple began dating in 2009.
What makes the break up unpalatable is that if there was a couple the public would have like to have seen stay together it would have been this photogenic one. But then again, perhaps the split belies the fact that appearances can often be more deceiving than meets the eye, no matter what the public would like to see for the couple and by extension for themselves.
