This actor has regained his place on our radar and we welcome him with open arms. Once a theatre boy, now a husband, you must be a little curious about the woman who eventually locked him up. Well, we too, which is why we’re going to see George Clooney’s wife… and to spice it up, we’re going to look at his sister and his other girlfriends too.
George Clooney’s Wife
Okay, here’s a story worth telling; two women in all have been named George Clooney’s wife and we’re going to meet both of them.
George Clooney’s Wife; Talia Balsam
Clooney and Balsam were married from 1989 to 1993; they were married in Las Vegas in 1989 and divorced in 1993. George admitted that he did not give Talia a fair chance during their marriage and that it was a bad time for him to get married.
Balsam, on the other hand, does not seem to hold a grudge against him and has no objection to being associated with her ex-husband. She told the Sunday Express in 2013: “I’m used to it now. And he talks about it more than I do! It’s funny because it’s still in the present, even if it was a long time ago. Now, it’s just a fact. It doesn’t even occur to me anymore.
Make no mistake, she is by no means yet living in the past relationship, she has since then spent marrying Mad Men star, John Slattery. Both have a son and are also featured next to each other in the television show, Mad Men.
George Clooney’s Wife; Amal Alamuddin
His marriage to this Lebanese-British lawyer took the world by surprise because, after his marriage to Balsam, Clooney renounced the institution of marriage. Also, the world was shocked because the couple had literally nothing in common and Amal despised the Hollywood scene. The couple was first spotted on October 24, 2013, at a dinner in London, but Clooney’s representative denied that they were dating.
However, the frequency of their meetings is different: on February 18, 2014, the couple was seen holding hands during the screening of Clooney’s film, The Monuments Men, at the White House. Then came the romantic getaway to Zanzibar and Tanzania.
The proposal is said to have taken place around April 22, with George preparing a home-cooked meal in Amal and asking for his hand during a small intimate meal at his home, and on May 1, the ring made its first appearance. It was said that the ring cost more than $750,000 and that it was a 7-carat emerald-cut diamond set with a platinum band.
That’s what it’s all about, you get bigger or you go home! Another thing that made people scratch their heads is the fact that they only dated for a short period of time, only 5 months. In September of the same year, the couple married. No need for these long commitments, which most often end in breakdowns.
George Clooney’s Sister
Clooney has had many women in his life and they have all had maximum coverage, whether they like it or not. One of them probably didn’t get any attention at all, it was her sister Adelia Zeidler. Her life is not as flashy and glamorous as her younger brother’s, but she is doing rather well.
This mother of two 52-year-old children lives in Augusta County, Kentucky, near her parents, and works in the payroll and accounting field. She has already thought about becoming an actress but in her own words: “I love to play and I was good enough for it, but I didn’t have skin thick enough for it.
She is now a single mother by default, her husband having died in 2004. As for her relationship with her little brother, she does not have her phone number, but it is for security reasons on her part. They send each other emails and meet once a year during his home visits. They seem to have a good deal.
