33 of 105: George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis have broken up after dating for about two years, the two said in a statement to OnTheRedCarpet.com on June 22, 2011.

The reason for the split was not made clear. Clooney and Canalis, a 32-year-old Italian actress who appeared in the 2005 comedy film 'Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo,' were seen together in public in Italy a week before their breakup was announced and celebrated the actor's 50th birthday in Los Angeles in May, People magazine reported.

Clooney, once dubbed People magazine's sexiest man alive, and Canalis first stepped out together in September 2009. They also attended the 2011 Academy Awards together.

The actor has been previously linked to Sarah Larson, a Las Vegas cocktail waitress and former winner of the reality show "Fear Factor." The two dated from 2007 to 2008.

Clooney was also married to actress Talia Balsam from 1989 until 1993. The actor said on the CNN show "Piers Morgan Tonight" in January that he had no intentions of marrying again.

Clooney has also expressed his disinterest in becoming a father. Canalis told the Italian edition of Cosmopolitan magazine in an interview published in February that she had no plans to have children.
