Stacy Keibler says her split from George Clooney isn’t “that big of a deal”.
The blonde beauty wishes she had a juicier story to tell about the end of her two-year romance with the A-list actor earlier this month, insisting there’s “no real story” behind the couple’s amicable split.
She said: “For me, it’s just what it is. There’s no real story. I almost wish I had a story because it would make it so much easier, because everyone’s so interested. To me, it’s not really that big of a deal. It’s just life and now, you know, new beginnings.”
The former WWE wrestler dined with a host of George’s Hollywood pals during their time together, but she reveals that one particular dinner guest – US President Barack Obama – rendered her “speechless”.
In an interview on ‘The Sam Roberts Show’ on American radio, she said: “I’m never really star-struck by people, but meeting him for the first time – no matter which party you’re on – he’s got such an energy about him, he’s very charming, so I was a little speechless when I first met him.”
Stacy, 33, found fame as a feisty WWE Diva between 2001 and 2006, and while wrestling has a niche following, she was surprised to learn that many Hollywood executives knew about her grappling past when she transitioned into acting and presenting.
She explained: “I remember when I first moved to Los Angeles, a lot of the executives at the film studios were big wrestling fans. I’d be set up with a general meeting with someone, thinking they had no idea, and they’d say, ‘What is it that you’re doing right now?’ And they knew everything!”
