George Clooney, Elisabetta Canalis Split

USMagazine, Wednesday, June 22, 2011, 8:32am (PDT)
  • Attention, ladies: George Clooney is back on the market.

    After two years together, he and Italian actress/model Elisabetta Canalis have called it quits. "We are not together anymore," the duo tells Us Weekly in a joint statement. "It's very difficult and very personal and we hope everyone can respect our privacy."

    All seemed well for the jet-setting pair -- who spent tons of time together, often with their families, at Clooney's Lake Como estate in Italy -- recently.

    "I am very happy at the moment - thanks to my man and my fairytale is continuing," Canalis, 32, told Italian magazine Chi in its June issue. "We are a couple that never gets bored."

    But the notoriously private Clooney, 49, revealed in January that he wouldn't wed again -- not Canalis or anyone, for that matter.

    "I was married," he quipped on Piers Morgan Tonight. "I gave it a shot." (Clooney and actress Talia Balsam were wed from 1989 to 1993.)

    Yet Canalis seemed less averse to walking down the aisle. "I am a firm believer in marriage," she told Chi.  "In the future I will be married, but for the time being I am happy as I am," she says. "I don't need anything to confirm how happy I am."

    "[George] reassures me all the time," Canalis said in a late 2010 chat with Italian Vanity Fair. "I feel more embraced than ever before. The idea of being so loved is overwhelming...George has given color back to my life."
