Elisabetta Canalis is finally breaking her silence on what it is like dating the Silver Fox himself — George Clooney. The Italian TV personality and Oscar-winning American actor have kept their relationship very private, but now Elisabetta opens up to Vanity Fair‘s Italian edition about her man.
Elisabetta tells Vanity Fair that George is a very supportive boyfriend.
“He is always very close to me,” she says.
George’s loyalty to is leading lady was recently in the headlines after testimony was released connecting Elisabetta to a cocaine and prostitution ring in Italy.
Italian news sources reported that the 49-year-old actor was standing by her side.
Not only is George loyal and supportive but Elisabetta describes him as “the person thanks to which my life has regained color. I feel good, I feel light. Like when I was 18 years old.”
“I am happy like I was when I was 18 years old,” the Italian beauty, 31, says. “Those who criticize or invent stories about us are just jealous.”
As far as those break-up rumors which spread internationally on occasion, Elisabetta explains:
“It might seem a cliché, but unfortunately it is true: The Italians never support their own citizens who earn an opportunity or a recognition abroad… I don’t expect to be celebrated, but neither do I expect the newspapers of our country to use as a reference point a gossip blog which is full of insults, racism and violence.”
