Hollywood heart-throb George Clooney concedes he has "failed with women" but he's still searching for the love of his life.

The actor, 44, split from British TV presenter LISA SNOWDON earlier this year (05). He was then rumoured to be dating Italian heiress GIANNA ELVIRA CANTATORE.

Clooney is now single again but he confesses he wants to find happiness like best pal Brad Pitt has with Angelina Jolie.

He says, "I haven't lost hope. My friends Angelina Jolie and Brad are very much in love. Maybe it's time for me to find the woman of my life, too.

"I realise I am the last person who can judge my tastes - I have failed badly with women."
