The heartbreakers of Hollywood

Some Hollywood stars are so good at being bad boys that women just love them!

Why are reports suggesting George Clooney’s engagement to British lawyer Amal Alamuddin such a big deal? One, Clooney had been Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor for years now even though he seemed to be grappling with commitment issues.

Two, his female fans might lose hope. However, he won’t be the only one in this exclusive league who constantly changing partners only to settle down sooner or later. hitlist points out a few of his fellow club members with a sex appeal that comes out of being available and yet not available.

Bradley Cooper

The twice Oscar-nominated actor has had several beauties as arm candies. Interestingly enough, like Clooney, Cooper was married (and divorced) once. Since his divorce, this Don Juan has dated everyone from Renee Zellweger to Zoe Saldana. His current girlfriend is model Suki Waterhouse.

Javier Bardem

The Spanish heartthrob is known for maintaining privacy about his personal life. So much so that the world was not only surprised by his romance with compatriot Penelope Cruz but also was pleasantly startled by his secret wedding to her in 2010. This marriage certainly broke lot of hearts.

Ryan Gosling

Before the Drive star got serious with actress Eva Mendes, there was a date-list worthy of someone with a female fan following like Ryan. Starting with Sandra Bullock, Ryan went on to date Sandra Bullock, Rachel McAdams, Kat Dennings, Casey LaBow, Blake Lively and Olivia Wilde.

Leonardo Dicaprio

This brilliant actor has dated so many supermodels that it’s not funny — at least for lesser mortals. The list ranges from Gisele Bundchen to Bar Refaeli. Not very long ago, there was a buzz that he was keen on marrying Refaeli. That didn’t materialise and he’s currently dating model Toni Garrn.

Sean Penn

Presently involved with Charlize Theron, one can always bet that he can be unreliable. Ask ex-wife Robin Wright or director Terrence Malick. Nonetheless, he has never been short of gorgeous women for company be it Scarlett Johansson or Petra Nemcova or Elle Macpherson.

Joaquin Phoenix

The 39-year-old genius is said to be “head over heels in love” with the 19-year-old DJ, Allie Teilz. In the past, he has meandered from one talented woman to another — stopping just short of marriage. He had the longest relationship with actress Liv Tyler — that lasted four years — in the mid-’90s.

Michael Fassbender

Undoubtedly the hottest European export to Hollywood — both in terms of looks and skills — attracts quite a bevy. In a relatively short career span, he has already added model Madalina Ghenea and actress Lupita Nyong’o to his dalliances. He’s currently dating Naomi Campbell.

Johnny Depp

Post his break up with French actress Vanessa Paradis after being together for about 15 years, the Pirates of the Caribbean star dated Eva Green, Kiley Evans, Ashley Olsen and Julie Ellis. This was before he found “the one” in actress Amanda Heard, who he’s all set to marry this year.

Gerard Butler

One can’t blame his female fans for falling for his swoon-worthy Scottish accent. The 300 star does have quite a reputation for wooing his co-stars — Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Biel being two of them. But he never turned serious with any. Model Madalina Ghenea is his latest girlfriend.
