George Clooney put the moves on Eva Longoria before splitting up with Stacy Keibler.

Man, it must really be a burden to not be able to date two beautiful women at the same time. Life just isn't fair.

A source close to the 52-year-old Oscar-winning actor he unsuccessfully tried to woo the 38-year-old "Desperate Housewives" star while was still dating Keibler. Friends for years, Clooney and Longoria hung out together in March at Soho House in Berlin -- both were in Germany for work -- "but did not hook up," according to the insider.

Afterward, Clooney began pursuing Longoria, according to the source. "He told her that he was still with Stacy, but had plans to break up with her and was interested in being with Eva."

That doesn't sound like the most unreasonable thing some of us have heard all day.

While divorced Longoria resisted, Clooney continued to "pursue her with texts and calls. Eva make it clear to him that she would not date or be with him until he was completely single."

While Clooney was apparently trying to decide, Longoria began seeing Ernesto Arguello, who starred in NBC's canceled dating reality show "Ready for Love," which Longoria produced.

"She is now very happy with him," the source adds. "George and Eva never hooked up."

Clooney and Keibler ended their two-year relationship earlier this month. As another insider said, "Stacy has always been independent and has been focusing on her work. She got fed up with the distance between them and broke it off."
