(NEW YORK) — One of Hollywood’s best-known bachelors, George Clooney, has admitted that he’s still single because he’s still waiting for the love of his life.
“I haven’t met her yet,” Clooney told W magazine.
The 52-year-old leading man shared his first cinematic crush.
“When I was a kid, I was in love with Audrey Hepburn,” Clooney told W. “I watched Roman Holiday when I was 11, and I thought she was as elegant as anything I’d ever seen. And I fell madly in love with her. I also always loved Grace Kelly. I mean, when she comes out of the water in To Catch a Thief, I thought, ‘That’s the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen.’”
Elsewhere in W’s art issue, Clooney opened up to five premier female artists. When they asked him whether he talks while making love, he said, “only on the phone.” He also said he’d like to die “before my friends.”
The Oscar-winning actor revealed that he gets “depressingly homesick” when he spends too much time away from the friends and family who know him best.
“Home is where my friends and family are,” Clooney told W. “I spend eight months a year in a one-bedroom hotel room in a city I probably wouldn’t vacation in. …But no city…no space…fails to be a home if your family or friends can find a time to visit.”
“I get desperately, depressingly homesick,” he continued, “if I can’t find a way to be near the people that bring joy wherever they go.”
