Clooney was married once before, to actress Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993, just prior to his joining the TV hit “ER.”

Since then he’s dated, among others, Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis and former WWE personality Stacy Keibler.

Alamuddin, a human rights attorney, was recently sought for a position with the UN to investigate possible war crimes in Gaza, but declined the post, citing ongoing commitments.
