While they were both struggling actors, George Clooney and girlfriend Kelly Preston moved in together in 1999. At the time, Clooney was starring in the sitcom, Roseanne, while Kelly was starring in her hit films Twins and Space Camp. The couple reportedly met when they were both invited to the same party by their agent.
