Just as George Clooney is reportedly dropping out of the film Man From U.N.C.L.E. due to a bad back, his former girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis is stretching her back to appear in Season 13 of Dancing With the Stars!
Elisabetta chatted with reporters after the Season 13 cast for DWTS was announced last night about why she joined the show.
“Dancing with the Stars came to me, and I couldn’t say no,” Elisabetta told OK!. “I think it’s challenging to me to work in another country with another language, and dancing is a part of my job. But never with a world champion! It’s a great chance why not?”
And the Italian actress reveals she was exciting by her pairing for the show.
“Of course, I’m excited for everything,” Elisabetta told reporters. “But now I’m rehearsing with him everyday. When you train and try to do something and after six hours you can, you are very happy.”
Elisabetta also hopes the show will help her stay toned.
“Yes, for me the most important thing is to stretch very well,” she explained. ” It’s very important, I do it at home when I come back.
So, what makes the DWTS girls the sexiest on TV?
“It’s the dance you learn are sexy,” Elisabetta told OK! while also apologizing for her English. “I learn dancing at day and English at night. But anyway…the thing is that this kind of dance is very sexy. You learn to move your hips, contact with your partner — very sexy. The wardrobe is very sexy.”
And speaking of wardrobe, Elisabetta says she has “some ideas” for that, but she apparently won’t be trying to impress a celebrity crush.
“I don’t have idols, I’m boring,” she said. “When I was young I had James Dean poster in my room. I watch a movie and I think, “That actor is great.”
Wonder if George is still on her list of “great” actors or not?
