While the couple broke up less than a year later, in 1989, George Clooney kept Max as his own pet until it died in 2006.3.
Talia Balsam A bit late on my Instagram, but we’re thrilled to have designed a gown/jumpsuit for the talented and beautiful Talia Balsam #emmys2015 #taliabalsam #johnslattery #moskovco #moskov @moskovco #amc #madmen A photo posted by khristine catacutan (@khriscatnyc) on Oct 3, 2015 at pm PDTGeorge Clooney got engaged and married his first wife, Talia Balsam, just a few months after things with Preston ended.
Michelle’s thoughts on meeting him weren’t much, “Kind of cute, one of Dedee’s boyfriends, yeah, OK, nice to meet you,” but she later went on to star with her sister’s ex-boyfriend in One Fine Day.2.
Clooney won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for the Middle East thriller Syriana (2005), and subsequently earned Best Actor nominations for the legal thriller Michael Clayton (2007) and the comedy-dramas Up in the Air (2009) and The Descendants (2011).
In 2013, he received the Academy Award for Best Picture for producing the political thriller Argo.
The marriage lasted just a few years, though, and Clooney reflects now that he “probably – definitely – wasn’t someone who should have been married at that point,” adding that he doesn’t feel as though he gave Talia a fair shot before divorcing her in 1993.
After the divorce, he swore he would never marry again, but that didn’t stop the ladies from trying to change his mind.4.
