'We had a great time': Lisa Snowdon recollects her 'wild' relationship with George Clooney
'Sometimes I think it will be written on my tombstone — ‘George Clooney once dated Lisa Snowdon,'' Lisa said
Lisa Snowdon, who has always been bombarded with questions about her relationship with George Clooney, has finally opened up about the 'wild' affair that lasted five years. She, however, has vowed to keep their sex life private. In a recent interview, Lisa told The Sun, “George was charming, a really nice man, good fun and we had a great time. It was quite wild. Sometimes I think it will be written on my tombstone — ‘George Clooney once dated Lisa Snowdon.'” After meeting on the set of a Martini commercial in 2000, the 90s supermodel, now 50, began dating the 61-year-old Hollywood hunk.
Lisa rose to become one of the top models in the UK during their five years together, while George had already attained God-like status thanks to his classic good looks and box office success. Fans still want to know what happened between the sheets with the couple twenty years later, but Lisa told The Sun that she will always deliver the same response, adding, "I never tell."
In the Martini commercial, Lisa played a stunning party hostess who purred as she opened the door to the chiseled hunk who had arrived without the required bottle, "No Martini, no party.” The couple split in 2005 after realizing that their romance had run its course. George is now married to barrister Amal Clooney, with whom he shares five-year-old twins Alexander and Ella.
Lisa admitted that she no longer talks with the actor, but she maintains friendships with some of his associates. She credits the actor for introducing her to Matt Damon, who co-starred with her in 'Ocean's Eleven,' and his wife Luciana Barroso, with whom she stayed in the United States last year. Lisa mentioned Matt on ITV’s 'I’m A Celebrity' in 2016, adding, “He came to my birthday party. He’s really nice.”
The stunning model also spoke out about her fiancé George Smart, the other George in her life. She said, “He’s the most supportive person. I’m so happy I’m not with a selfish person who’s just looking out for number one.”
On meeting her fiancé she remarked, "We met 20 years ago when I was on MTV, and then reconnected through a great friend, Amanda Grossman [who applied Lisa's make-up for this shoot].” “She asked if he was interested in anyone and he said, 'There’s this girl I used to date and I’d love to take her out again – her name’s Lisa Snowdon.' So she gave him my number. We met for dinner and as we walked toward each other our smiles just got bigger and bigger. We immediately got back into that familiarity, and we’d both made all the mistakes in life we needed to. And the rest is history!” she explained.
