We were all shocked when George Clooney — Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor — got engaged to lawyer Amal Alamuddin, mostly because George has been so resistant to marriage in the past. While hell definitely seemed to freeze over in this case, we’re not holding our breath that all of Hollywood’s notorious bachelorettes and bachelors will follow suit.
With George and Amal's wedding over and done with, it seemed fitting to shed some light on the celebrities who have taken a stand against saying “I do.” In fact, many of the world’s most desirable leading ladies and gentlemen — Charlize Theron, Cameron Diaz, and Leonardo DiCaprio — have spoken out about their decision to stay single.

“The question is, ‘Why [get married]?’ It’s not, ‘Why not?’” Hawn said of longtime beau Kurt Russell on “CBS This Morning” in 2012. “We love each other. We fight the way people are supposed to fight. We love our lives together.”
The actress has dated some of Hollywood’s most sought-after men, but has never added a “Mrs.” to her moniker. In 2001, Keaton said, "I don't think that because I'm not married it's made my life any less. That old maid myth is garbage.”
The mother-of-two has been playing house with longtime boyfriend Scott Disick for years, but has no intention of making things official.
Pacino remains mum on why he has never married, but his friend, writer Lawrence Grobel, offered up this explanation to People in 1999: “His father left when he was young. He doesn’t want to get involved in a bad marriage. And he can be a difficult man sometimes, and I think he’s aware of that.”
The talk show host has been dating businessman Stedman Graham since 1986, but the pair has chosen not to take the plunge. During an interview on ITV's Lorraine, she revealed, "I'm not a traditional woman and I haven't had a traditional life, and I think that had Stedman and I gotten married, we certainly wouldn't have stayed married."
Despite rumored romantic links to celebrities including Neve Campbell and Minnie Driver, the actor has never said "I do."
In 2011, Maxim asked the actress if she thought marriage was a dying institution. She responded, “I think we have to make our own rules. I don’t think we should live our lives in relationships based off of old traditions that don’t suit our world any longer.”
He may be a father of two, but he hasn't settled down with the mother of his children. In fact, the notorious bachelor has never married, and it doesn’t look like that will be changing anytime soon.
Despite his long list of ex-girlfriends, Leo shows no signs settling down.
In an interview with OK! magazine, the actress revealed that she only plans on marrying once. "I very much believe in marriage. I hope to only be married once, which is why I've never been married."
