Some men never long for the ringing of wedding bells and that temperate walk down the aisle. These are the eternal bachelors of the Hollywood life; the self-determining, jet setters, skirt-chasers and damsel-addicted dudes who don't care to settle down.
Grand Bachelor Clooney, 50
Perpetual bachelor George Clooney was married once in his past but it didn't end well and he has made formal statements since that he never plans on giving it another try. This might be the reason Clooney recently split from his two year romance with Elisabetta Canalis. Few details were given about why the couple called it off, but it seems this silver fox is back on the hunt.
No Tying Down Diddy, 41
Sean "Diddy" Combs has several children with former girlfriend Kim Porter but after 10 bumpy years of make-ups and break-ups the couple called it quits in 2007. He also has a child with his high school sweetheart Misa Hylton-Brim and dated Jennifer Lopez, among a long list of other ladies. Despite a Twitter fake-out in 2010, when Diddy wrote, "Juat (sic) married!" on New Year's Eve, he quickly dispelled any misgivings regarding his single status. No one is banking on Diddy saying "I do" any time soon.
Jet Setting Gerard , 41
Gerard Butler has been linked to some of the hottest women in Hollywood, but this Harley riding roughneck seems to enjoy his freedom. His recent motorcycle ride down California's Pacific Coast Highway with co-star Jessica Biel is just another friendly encounter which definitely won't make him pause for a walk down the aisle.
Academy Award Al, 71
Al Pacino never married but does have three children resulting from two relationships. His long time relationship with the mother of his twin son and daughter, actress Beverly D'Angelo, went sour shortly after the birth of their children. Pacino seems to still be on the prowl for any lovely ladies.
Broad-Loving Bill, 55
Politically incorrect Bill Maher enjoys keeping it real by maintaining his bachelor status. He has publicly denounced the so-called virtues of marriage and has been linked with several ladies decades younger than himself including, Clara Santa Maria (actress and neurobiology Master's degree-holder), Playboy Cyber Girl Coco Johnson (who tried to sue him for $9 million for not marrying her after he supposedly promised to), andmusic video vixen Karrine Steffans (who wrote a book recounting her sexual escapades with numerous rap stars and celebrities and gave herself the nickname "Superhead").
Honorary Bachelor Fox in the Making, 36
Leonardo DiCaprio is a serial monogamist who seems to wander away from relationships once they get serious enough for wedding bells to ring. Case in point: former flames, models Gisele Bundchen and Bar Refaeli. He has most recently been spotted with "Green Lantern" actress Blake Lively. It's safe to say his type is tall, lithe, tanned and blonde.
