Well, he has proved himself right. After being in a marriage with Amal Clooney, he has been trying for it so hard that he has finally succeeded. However, we've learned through sources that before he met his current wife, George had been unsuccessful in planning for this.
"I don't expect ever to get married again or have children," words of divorced Clooney during an interview Britain's Sunday People in 2008.
"I am never at home, and every woman gets sick of it...If I was them, I would never put up with me for long-and they don't," he added further.
Obviously, he had said that years before he fell in love with Amal Clooney, who is an internationally celebrated human rights activist and 17 years younger to him.
Not only this, even after marrying Amal in 2015, almost eight months after their marriage, George Clooney was spotted saying he doesn't have designs on daddyhood.
