George Clooney & Eva Longoria claim they’re not hooking up, are ‘friends’

The current issue of Us Weekly has a suspicious story about George Clooney and Eva Longoria – we covered it on Friday. Apparently, George pursued Eva while he was still technically dating Stacy Keibler, at least according to Us Weekly’s sources. The story was that George pursued Eva but Eva was and is an honorable woman and she declined his advances because he had a girlfriend. Which… sure, you can believe that. I choose to believe that Eva and George probably did fall into bed with each other a few times, and she probably traveled for Clooney dong too. Anyway, after the Us Weekly story came out, Eva tweeted a denial, I guess:

They’ve “always been friends”? Because friends never, ever hookup. And it’s not like George almost exclusively hangs out with his dude friends because he really doesn’t have female “friends” because he basically only thinks of women as sexual partners? Oh, wait, that IS TRUE. So of course George’s people had to deny it too.

George Clooney “unsuccessfully tried to woo” Eva Longoria “while he was dating Stacy Keibler,” claims a so-called “exclusive” from Us Weekly.

The magazine, which has been publicly blasted by Clooney for its inaccurate reporting about his personal life, alleges that the actor “began pursuing Eva” after they hung out at the Soho House in Berlin in March.

A purported “insider” tells the tab, “He told her that he was still with Stacy, but had plans to break up with her and was interested in being with Eva.”

The “source” goes on to claim that Longoria “resisted” Clooney’s supposed advances, but he “continued to pursue her with texts and calls.”

“Eva make it clear to him that she would not date or be with him until he was completely single,” adds the misinformed source.



None of this ever happened.

A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop that Clooney and Longoria “have been friends for a long time” and “that’s all.”

The source continued, “I mean, does George ever bang his female friends? Of course he does. But after this crap got leaked to Us Weekly, he will definitely not be banging Eva again.” Sorry, that was just the subtext. The Sun claims that George doesn’t give a crap about Eva’s “new boyfriend” (that contestant on her reality show!) and that George has invited Eva to Lake Como. Which… probably isn’t true?

The only thing I think it’s safe to say is that Eva and George will definitely not be hooking up in the future. Which means we still have a new Clooney Girlfriend Roll-Out coming, probably by the Toronto Film Festival, right? So, less than two months to find a girl, prep her, get her to sign all of the nondisclosure forms, get her a new wardrobe and some hair and makeup people and then get some quotes dropped into People and Us Weekly. Maybe not Us Weekly this time – Us Weekly might be on Clooney’s no-go list this time. People Magazine it is!

    I can’t figure out which is worse — the Santa vibes in the full beard pic or the Hitler vibes in the other.

    George, facial hair is not your friend!

  2. Marjalane says:

    After all this back and forth denial stuff, I kind of wonder if it’s being done for Stacy Keibler’s benefit. Even if she got a big payoff to exit, she probably wasn’t thrilled to have everyone know George was cheating on her. (and I still think she’s an upgrade to the cat food dancer)

    OMG, in the black parka photo, George is a dead ringer for Omar Sharif!

    I´m just wondering why Clooney pursued her in the first place. I mean, normally he dates Eliza Doolittle types and turns them into a proper hollywood girlfriend. He likes to be in control, especially what is leaked to the press and what stays hidden and Eva Longoria is not really known to be discreet.
    But I also do wonder about her game plan to leak this. Is she so desperate that she wants everybody to know that Clooney was interested..

  5. Miss M says:

    *Maybe Eva didn’t study enough the Clooney dating book* Just kidding!

    Brace yourselves for the next girl…

    George, why don’t you go solo?! Man up and go solo, wimp! :) Leave your girl in Lake Como…

  6. PHD Gossip says:

    If George is smart, he chooses someone in her late 30s. The young babes age him even more and he looks skeevy. Agewise and height wise, Longoria would look perfect next to him.
    let’s figure out a match for him. We know his PR team visits these sites.

    Well, this story got boring real quick…

  8. jesa says:

    No they both agreed to put this out. They ARE friends, with the same political interests. This is to combat what Stacey put out, that they hadn’t had sex in 6 mths. Also to combat Eva’s BF’s financial problems.

    say what you want about clooney girls on staff, they dont have big mouths

    i dont just mean when it comes to leaking george’s business. but they probably fade into the background at lake como so he doesnt have to hear them ramble on.

    i cant see eva being quiet for 2 seconds.

  10. janie says:

    I love him.. I can’t help myself! Go George! In today’s Sunday Magazine there is an article with Stacey talking about her new show. She mentions how much she & GC love cooking together & having friends over? I’m guessing this was written in better times.

  11. Emma13 says:

    Am I the only one who gets her confused with Eva Mendez? It’s not just the name, I’m convinced they’re the same person. I kept thinking “what does Ryan have to say about this Hmmmmm?” but then I realize I’m an idiot.

  12. Leah K. says:

    It ‘s funny how no actress wants to be linked to George Clooney anymore.10 years ago it would’ve been a compliment to be linked to him,now it is an insult.Who wants to be seen as this man’s beard or side piece? No actress in their right mind would sign up for that reputation.

  13. janie says:

    I think that he needs to not “date” for a while. But, it’s not really up to us is it?

  14. DT says:

    I love the movies that George Clooney directs. But his personal life is disturbing to any woman with half a brain. Please George, make movies. Your relationships with these excruciating bimbos is now hurting your fan base. If you must date this type of “girl” it would be best to keep it in the background. Your very real talent is being eclipsed by this parade of interchangeable z-listers.

  15. Talie says:

    What a fool to dump Stacy… he should’ve waited until after the awards circuit. She was a good match for him.

  16. Mia says:

    The fact that they felt the need to issue a public denials makes it seem all the more likely that did hook up. At least in my eyes.

  17. Claire says:

    Eva could only dream!! Like George as an actor and would love to have him as a dinner guest cause he seems like he likes a drink and a laugh, but there is just something fishy about the whole girlfriend situation.

  18. abbie246 says:

    I must be missing something because I don’t know why everybody thinks this rumor is true. Actually why people think they are having an affair. Pet peeve of mine but it’s really annoying when people say a denial is proof that the rumor is true. But when a celebrity doesn’t give a denial, people still claim the rumor is true.

  19. Angelica says:

    I don’t care about this story, I just can’t wait until he knocks someone up. With all the Kraptrashian/Kuntye baby buzz and the duchess’ pending birth, I’d love to hear some news about an A-lister like Clooney unexpectedly getting a lady pregnant. I’d eat that story up!
