What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. That is, until it doesn't.
Just in time for Valentine's Day, Ancestry.com is lifting the veil on who got hitched in the unofficial marriage capital of the world (with 62 marriages per 1,000 residents, it should seriously be official).
Looking back five decades, from 1956 to 2005, they've uncovered some of Hollywood's hottest names who pulled a "Ross and Rachel" in Vegas. Just, hopefully less drunk.
For instance, did you know notorious bachelor George Clooney was once married, over 20 years ago? Way before Elisabetta Canalis and Stacy Keibler, hunky Mr. ER married Talia Balsam in 1989. They made it through three years before calling it quits.
Look, we even have his marriage license as proof!
And hey, if Clooney fell prey, you know none of us are immune.
