Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney is apparently desperate to win the affections of Eva Longoria. Despite having just ending things with ex Stacy Keibler, the brooding bachelor is determined to make the Desperate Housewife his next girlfriend.
It has been reported that the two American actors became good pals after working on Barack Obama's Presidential campaign together and are believed to have enjoyed a string of secret dates.
According to The Sun, a source said of the pair, “They’ve become even closer just recently and George is smitten.
“Chemistry is palpable whenever they’re in the same room and mutual friends have been backing the union, saying what a great couple they’d make.

“They’re both really smart and have very passionate political beliefs in common. It’s rare to find someone of a similar fame level and of equal intelligence. It’s the full package.
“Eva is enjoying her summer fling in the States, but she’s flattered by George’s attentions.”
The Ocean Eleven's star has even invited the gorgeous brunette out to his Italian home next month. Unfortunately for George, Eva is happily dating Reality star Ernesto Arguello, who appeared on the NBC Reality show Ready For Love.
The insider added, “George is in Italy and Eva’s in Los Angeles but he’s asking her to visit.
“While he openly admits he has a massive crush on her he knows he has to respect she’s seeing Ernesto.
