Quotable: Elisabetta Canalis Says George Clooney Makes Her Feel Like She’s 18

“George Clooney is the person thanks to which my life has regained color. I feel good, I feel light. I am happy like I was when I was 18 years old. Those who criticize or invent stories about us are just jealous … 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.”

Elisabetta Canalis dishes to Italian Vanity Fair about her relationship with George Clooney, which she says is still going strong. We don’t know what she’s talking about in the end there, but we assume it can’t be the allegations that she snorted cocaine with a prostitute since that rumor broke last week and this interview was probably done a while ago.
