George Clooney’s recent public appearances with a brunette beauty have many wondering if the “Sexiest Man Alive” has found a new love.
While promoting his film “Michael Clayton” at both the Venice and the Deauville film festivals in Europe, Clooney was spotted with a woman identified as 28 year-old Sarah Larson of Las Vegas.
The pair was seen together at the “Michael Clayton” afterparty at Venice’s Hotel Cipriani, where they appeared to be quite cozy in photographs posted online.
“At one point he just leaned over and kissed her on the lips,” a partygoer reportedly told People, describing Larson as “stunning.”
Larson’s $3 million worth of loaner diamonds for the party were confirmed by the jeweler Bulgari as being requested for “George Clooney’s girlfriend,” according to People’s report, and a source close to Clooney told them that “[Larson is] really nice and generally liked by George’s friends.”
Clooney and Larson were spotted again at the Deauville film festival in France, where they reportedly had dinner with Matt Damon, his wife Luciana and some friends at a restaurant in Beaumont-en-Auge.
Larson reportedly works as a cocktail waitress for the N9NE Group, a company that manages various restaurants and clubs in Las Vegas. She has worked at Palms hot spots Ghostbar and Moon nightclub for almost three years, N9NE Group General Manager Chris Bruno told The Las Vegas Review Journal.
According to the report, Bruno said that Larson met Clooney at the “Ocean’s Thirteen” premiere at the Palms on June 6, and that the photos of the pair from the party in Venice “speak for themselves.”
“(Sarah) sent me a text message to say she can’t make it back any time soon,” he added.
While she may work at a nightclub, Larson actually has a past in television! In 2005, she and then-boyfriend Dan Randolph won NBC’s “Fear Factor: Las Vegas Duos” competition. The pair defeated three other teams on the Feb. 21 episode.
