Dating George Clooney isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

While there’s no doubt that plenty of female fans would like to test that theory for themselves, the “Ocean’s Eleven” star’s former flame, Lisa Snowdon, says it’s the truth.

“I’ve been celibate for a year and starting to think I may never have sex again,” the model-turned-actress told The Sun. “It’s not something I planned, but I just don’t get asked out any more.”

How is that the fault of her A-List ex? Apparently, most guys aren’t too eager to follow in George’s formidable footsteps.

“Men seem to look at me and think, ‘She went out with George Clooney. What chance have I got?’” Lisa said.

Michelle Williams moves onIt’s been almost seven months since Heath Ledger died, and according to Star, his ex, Michelle Williams, is finally ready to move on and give romance another try.

Ledger and Williams were no longer together when he died, but there's no doubt the death of Ledger, her daughter's father, affected Williams deeply. Now sources tell the magazine the actress has fallen head over heels for director Spike Jonze.

“There was a friendship in the beginning, but they got closer after Heath died,” an insider revealed. “Spike was there for Michelle after the tragedy, and he helped her get through some of the darkest days.”

The love connection was unexpected, but things are said to be getting serious between the pair.

“They’re crazy about each other,” another source said. “Right now, they’re secretly playing house and seeing where things go. But it’s serious enough that Spike is the first love interest Michelle’s introduced her daughter to since Heath’s death. And he’s so great with Matilda! That’s one of the reasons Michelle is falling so hard for him.”

Matt Damon’s global visionIf we want to shape up as a country, we need to ship out, or so says “Departed” star Matt Damon.

Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. on the "Let's Be Cops," red carpet, Selena Gomez is immortalized in wax and more.

“I think many of our problems as a country would be solved if people had thick passports,” the actor told Conde Nast Traveler. “There's just no substitute for actually going and seeing things.”

Matt believes travel is key when it comes to connecting to the global community. 

“You start to feel a level of responsibility to direct attention to things that actually matter more than silly things like who you're dating,” he explained.

Dish on the flyDon’t look to spouse Josh Kelley for insider info on Katherine Heigl. “I'm just the husband; I'm not the manager,” the singer told Us Weekly. But since you asked, in Josh's opinion, “People (made) a big deal out of nothing” when “Grey’s Anatomy” star Heigl dropped out of Emmy consideration. He doesn’t want any part of the controversy. “It's still not my business. I just stayed out of it, so I don't know.” … Anne Hathaway has one rule when it comes to relationships — keep business and pleasure separate. “I try not to date where I work,” the actress revealed to The Independent. “It makes life easier.” Considering that Anne’s last love was accused fraudster Raffaello Follieri, those Tinseltown hookups must be tougher than they look. … It’s the season of sun and fun, but Jennifer Love Hewitt didn’t spend her summer vacation frolicking on the beach. Rather than risk another round of bikini controversy, the “Ghost Whisperer” star reached for a broom and filled her days with housework. “I’m a neat freak and wanted to do different things to the house,” she told OK! magazine.
