George Clooney jokes he should be an athlete with all the women he’s been romantically linked to.
The silver fox actor has been associated with a string of beauties since his split with long term girlfriend, former wrestler Stacy Keibler, in July.
Included on the list are Katie Holmes, a rekindled romance with former flame Croatian model Monika Jakisic and dinner with London barrister Amal Alamuddin.
“Three different stories in three weeks. I should be an athlete. But, no of course, it’s all made up,” George told People.
George was able to laugh the rumors off, but his rep Stan Rosenfield didn’t see the funny side.
While it’s rare for George to speak so openly about his private life, Stan had little problem with putting an end to the gossip surrounding his client.
“George wants this Monika c**p to stop. He wants Katie to get a break, and he wants Amal to be able to prosecute cases without being hassled because she had one dinner with George and four others.
“I even asked George if these [rumors] were true and he said he never comments on his private life, but in the interest of stopping the harassment of all three of these women, he felt he should,” Stan fumed.
George is currently starring in space thriller Gravity. Co-starring Sandra Bullock, the pair, who have been friends for more than 20 years, had to recently deny there was anything more to their friendship.
A source close to the 52-year-old actor has come forward to defend his friend, reinforcing the message that George is very much single.
“George is not dating, nor has he dated Monika in several years, nor is he dating Katie Holmes – he simply hugged her at a premiere – nor is he the new boyfriend of Amal, who he is working with on a [surveillance] satellite program over Syria.”
