In an new interview, however, George dropped his guard a little as he discussed his private life.
"I haven't met her yet," the 52-year-old stated directly to W! magazine when asked about the greatest love of his life.
"When I was a kid, I was in love with Audrey Hepburn. I watched Roman Holiday when I was 11, and I thought she was as elegant as anything I'd ever seen. And I fell madly in love with her," the star told the magazine's 8th annual Art Issue.
"I also always loved Grace Kelly. I mean, when she comes out of the water in To Catch A Thief, I thought, 'That's the most beautiful woman I've ever seen.'"

The actor-director was also asked if her ever gets homesick.
"Home is where my friends and family are… I spend 8 months a year in a one bedroom hotel room in a city I probably wouldn't vacation in…But no city… no space… fails to be a home if your family or friends can find the time to visit.
"I get desperately, depressingly homesick if I can't find a way to be near the people that bring joy wherever they go… Spend a night with my parents battling over who was the rottenest child (My sister or me)…Or my friends pointing out how badly I destroyed a certain bat franchise.

"Home is humour... And love and responsibility… And I get homesick when the people who know that best and I can't find time to be together."
Other questions posed to George include whether he looks at himself the same way in a mirror — "the older I get the fewer mirrors I have" — who his favorite poet is — "Mark Twain" — and how he rates his sense of humour — "Depends on whose chart…if it's Mark Twain I'm a 2".
Finally, Tracey asked George, "If you could choose how to die then how?"
"Before my friends," the screen icon replied.
