After, "Who are you wearing?," the next most important red carpet question is "Who are you here with?"

Celebrity couples are always alluring. Drench them in tulle, tuxes and accolades, and they become nearly irresistible. But it's a shame that today's biggest stars can't hob knob with the glamorous old guard of Tinseltown ... or can they?

George Clooney on The One: 'I Haven't Met Her Yet'

George Clooney Has Yet to Meet the Love of His Life

Originally posted 12/02/2013 04:00PM

In the special-effects-heavy Gravity, most his scenes were shot solo, which George Clooney says suited him just fine.

"I actually like working by myself," he says with a laugh. But what about off-screen? Who is there to keep him warm?

And, on that subject, the often-reticent star is more forthcoming, but only slightly. When it comes to the greatest love of his life, "I haven't met her yet," Clooney, 52, matter-of-factly tells W magazine for its 8th annual Art Issue, on sale as of Dec. 2 (for the cover the Dream Man looks like an Op Art Nightmare in polka dots painted by Yayoi Kusama).

Stand-up comic and film actor Gad Elmaleh is not only considered the funniest person in France, but he's also dating Monaco's Charlotte Casiraghi, the stunning royal granddaughter of the late Princess Grace Kelly. And Casiraghi is expecting their first child together later this year.

Virtually unknown in the U.S., Elmaleh, 42, was actually in Woody Allen's Oscar-winning Midnight in Paris, as the misguided Détective Tisserant.

Starting Friday, American audiences will have the opportunity to see him again, this time in his starring role in the financial thriller Capital, opposite Gabriel Byrne and directed by Oscar-winning French director Costa-Gavras.

Here are five things to know about the Moroccan-born celebrity, who recently sat down with PEOPLE.

Royal Wedding Remembered: Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier

Rare Photos of Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier

Before Kate and William, and before Diana and Charles, there were Grace and Rainier.

In 1956, Hollywood royalty Grace Kelly – already beloved from her work in Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window and an Oscar winner for The Country Girl, married Rainier III, Prince of Monaco, to become real royalty as the Princess of Monaco.

As the world waits just 10 more days for the largest-scale royal wedding ever, 55 years ago Kelly, then 26, set the bar extravagantly high for royal "I Dos." The golden-haired actress wore a wedding dress designed by award-winning M-G-M costumer Helen Rose, which had been labored over for six weeks by the hands of three dozen seamstresses.

With 600 guests in attendance – including luminaries-of-the-day screen stars Ava Gardner and Gloria Swanson and hotelier Conrad Hilton – and an additional 30 million viewers tuning in at home, the wedding was certainly the actress's most-watched role ever. Fortunately, LIFE magazine captured it all from behind closed dressing room doors, beneath balconies and across the hushed aisle.
