The name "Al Pacino" means a lot of different things when mentioned in Hollywood. To some, it represents the name of one of the most iconic actors in the movie industry's history—someone whose name will forever be remembered and whose legacy will be hard to replicate.

To others, the name "Al Pacino" stands for a handsome actor who became the heartthrob of countless women in Hollywood for years. Someone who had multiple love interests but never got married. The actor recently celebrated his 82nd birthday in the company of his latest girlfriend, 28-year-old Noor Alfallah.

The pair dazzled in their all-black attire as they dined at Jones, a restaurant in West Hollywood, California. Also present at the restaurant were some of the actor's friends, and they enjoyed themselves throughout the evening.

The young beauty also wished her beau a happy birthday on social media by posting a video of a younger Pacino. The fact that the actor is 54 years older than her does not seem to bother Alfallah, as Pacino is not the first older man she has dated.

When she was only 22, the beauty dated Mick Jagger, who was 74 at the time. Meanwhile, Pacino is also not new to dating much younger women. In fact, the actor has never married but has had multiple lovers over the years. Here's a look at some of the actor's romantic relationships.

One of Pacino's most famous relationships was with acting coach Jan Tarrant, who he dated for about a year in the '80s. The relationship resulted in the actor's first child, Julie Marie Pacino. Although the two shared a child, things never worked out for them.

Another one of Pacino's exes was actress Jill Clayburgh. The actress, nominated twice for a Best Actress Oscar, met Pacino while working on Broadway in 1967.

The duo dated for five years until 1972, making her one of Pacino's longest relationships. The reason for the couple's separation remains unknown. The actress sadly died in 2010 after battling chronic lymphocytic leukemia for more than 20 years.

The next leading lady on Pacino's list is actress Dianne Keaton. The actress met him at a bar near Lincoln Center called O'Neals. At the time, Pacino had just been named the most promising new Broadway star due to his performance in "Does a Tiger Wear a Necktie?"

The pair was told to get to know each other before auditioning for "The Godfather." Pacino and Keaton were both nervous and barely talked about the movie. However, the actress found him attractive but could not act on her feelings because they were both unavailable at the time.

Still, Keaton tried to connect with Pacino by teaching him how to drive in the Cal Neva Hotel parking lot in Lake Tahoe. However, the actor found it hard to get used to the brake and could not figure out the difference between the left and right turn signals.

Pacino dangerously kept his legs on the gas pedal, although Keaton told him to press the brake if he wanted to stop. As she got to know him more, the actress realized he did not quite understand everyday things like enjoying meals with people or table conversations.

While the pair worked together on "The Godfather," Keaton developed a crush on Pacino. They eventually started dating, and Keaton fell deeply in love with him due to his charming personality.

However, as their relationship deepened, the actress wanted Pacino to marry her, but he refused. While filming "Godfather III," Keaton gave him an ultimatum to marry her or at least commit to the possibility.

The pair broke up and got back together again. Afterward, they went through a year of breaking and making up. Things got heated between them whenever they met on set.

Finally, two months after Keaton lost her father, Pacino admitted that he never wanted to marry her during therapy. After leaving the therapist's office, Keaton watched him walk away without looking back.

Pacino and Beverly D'Angelo started dating in 1977, and although they had no plans to get married, the pair became parents to twins Anton and Olivia. According to D'Angelo, the couple had only dated for three months when Al Pacino declared he wanted her to be the mother of his kids.

However, their relationship turned sour just a few years after the birth of the twins. Their separation eventually led to a custody battle where D'Angelo accused Pacino of being a controlling and harassing man who never changed a diaper.

Pacino's camp also accused D'Angelo of using the kids to make them look like hostages. The pair eventually settled on co-parenting their kids, and the actor had to pay $35,000 monthly in childcare.

Although the custody battle caused a rift between the two, Pacino and D'Angelo have since buried the hatchet. The pair moved past their differences and later became friends. According to her, the kids are also very close with their father, and she and the actor talk every time.

Pacino started dating Argentine beauty and TV star Lucila Sola in 2012. The pair appeared publicly together many times and were even pictured at the beach celebrating the actor's birthday in 2017.

The pair, who had broken up briefly a year before, looked happy together as they strolled on the beach. But sadly, their relationship did not last long after that.

After Sola, the actor started dating actress Meital Dohan in 2018 after meeting at a Hollywood afterparty following a screening. At first, Dohan refused to tell her parents about their relationship because of the age gap. However, they were fine with it when they eventually found out.

Their relationship ended two years later due to their age difference. Dohan reportedly found it hard to cope with Pacino being so old. Although she tried to make things work, she eventually gave up.

Dohan also disclosed that their relationship was not based on him buying her expensive gifts and that the actor only bought her flowers. The actress also revealed Pacino did not like spending money; however, it was an honor for her to be part of his legacy.

Pacino and his current girlfriend, Noor Alfallah, started dating during the pandemic. The actor and Alfallah, who is 53 years younger than him, have been pictured together multiple times enjoying each other's company. Pacino also happens to be older than Alfallah's father.

Alfallah is from a wealthy Kuwaiti American family. Apart from Jagger, she has also dated 60-year-old philanthropist Nicholas Berggruen and was once spotted with 90-year-old Clint Eastwood, who she claimed was just a family friend.

However, according to reports, Alfallah and Pacino get on very well, and the age gap does not seem to be a problem as they recently stepped out looking happy together.
