George Clooney W Art Issue December 2013/January 2014

What Makes George Clooney "Desperately Homesick"

George Clooney is the camouflaged cover star for W magazine's art issue. He worked with five different female artists for the publication, and when he wasn't sitting in a spotted Armani suit, he chatted with Lynn Hirschberg about his personal life. George, who split with his latest long-term girlfriend, Stacy Keibler, earlier this year, admitted this about the great love of his life: "I haven't met her yet." In a departure from his usual leading ladies, George revealed that as a kid, he "was in love with Audrey Hepburn" and "thought she was as elegant as anything I'd ever seen. And I fell madly in love with her. I also always loved Grace Kelly. I mean, when she comes out of the water in To Catch a Thief, I thought, 'That's the most beautiful woman I've ever seen.'"

George also opened up to artist Tracey Emin, sharing his definition of home and joking about his role as Batman in 1997's Batman & Robin. "Home is where my friends and family are. . . . I spend eight months a year in a one-bedroom hotel room in a city I probably wouldn't vacation in . . . but no city . . . no space . . . fails to be a home if your family or friends can find a time to visit. . . . I get desperately, depressingly homesick if I can't find a way to be near the people that bring joy wherever they go . . . spend a night with my parents battling over who was the rottenest child (my sister or me) . . . or my friends pointing out how badly I destroyed a certain bat franchise. . . . Home is humor . . . and love and responsibility . . . and I get homesick when the people who know that best and I can't find the time to be together."
