“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.

George Clooney‘s Italian actress girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis, has already made headlines for claiming Jennifer Aniston looks like raggedy old Iggy Pop and playing a nun who flashes her boobies in a film. Now court documents reveal that a prostitute employed by The Club, a nightclub in Milan, Italy, gave verbal testimony in October 2008 claiming she had done cocaine with Clooney’s girl.
We are shocked. Cocaine and prostitutes, and Charlie Sheen is not even involved? Keep reading »
Which “Up in the Air” star is searching the skies for a stork delivery? George Clooney? Vera Farmiga? Anna Kendrick? Find out … Keep reading »
Was is just me, or did George Clooney seem totally pissed off at the Oscars last night? His sour puss act in the front row almost made me miss Jack Nicholson smirking in his dark sunglasses. And George’s lady, Elisabetta Canalis, wasn’t looking too chipper either—those two had “Debbie Downer” written all over their faces. Sure, George played nice for two seconds on the red carpet, but once he got inside … forget it. What the heck does he have to be so pissed about? Our best guesses after the jump. Keep reading »
It’s T-minus two weeks until the Oscars, and we here in The Frisky office are already getting our Oscar pool organized—which means that you probably are, too. Luckily, the Academy is pretty predictable. And since we want you to win your co-workers’ money, we are looking at each of the major awards and dissecting some theories about who generally wins. Last week, we showed you that to win the Best Actress award, it’s best to be a card-carrying America’s Sweetheart getting her first nomination for a meaty role. To win Best Actor, it’s exactly the opposite—the Academy tends to vote on consistency in this category. In other words, the Oscar generally goes to the dude who has the most Best Actor and Best Supporting nominations under his belt already.
Don’t believe us? Here are just a few examples: Keep reading »
The nominations for the 82nd Academy Awards were announced this morning and some of the nominees include: George Clooney for best actor in “Up in the Air,” Mo’Nique for best supporting actress in “Precious,” Maggie Gyllenhaal for best supporting actress in “Crazy Heart,” Gabourey Sidibe for best actress in “Precious,” and a little movie called “Avatar” was nominated in a whole bunch of categories, tying “Hurt Locker” for a total of nine nominations. One difference in the awards this year is that 10 movies have been nominated for best picture rather than the usual five. For a full list, check out the official website of the Oscars. Keep reading »
While some women hate how facial hair chafes their chin, others find the grizzly mountain man look super sexy. I’m definitely in the latter category. Outside of soul patches (which I think are stoopid), facial hair can add character to a man’s face or cover up an otherwise weird-looking upper lip or chin. It can also make a really good-looking man even better looking. This is arguably the case with the newly bearded men of Hollywood: Jon Hamm, Brad Pitt, and George Clooney. This is why we’ve decided to take on the impossibly huge task of deciding which hunk should be shunned, shagged, or married. Keep reading »
Enough with photos in tabloid magazines of celebrity women in matching dresses with captions asking, “Who wore it better?” Do we really care which starlet-of-the-hour looks more bangin’ in the Dior cocktail dress? Or, which accessories complement the Armani gown better? No! Bring on the men, we say. With three of our favorite hotties sporting new beards, this is a “Who wears it better?” situation we actually care to ponder. So who gets your vote? Jon, Jason, or George? Keep reading »
The reports out of Haiti today continue to be horribly grim. Survivors of Tuesday’s mega-earthquake desperately need food and water, and relief aid teams just can’t get it to them quickly enough. Search and rescue teams are frustrated, and bodies continue to pile up in the streets. In the meantime, folks stateside are figuring out what we can do to help. It was just announced that Barack Obama will be penning the cover story for Monday’s issue of Newsweek, discussing the disaster and how we can all pitch in. And George Clooney is organizing a telethon to raise money for the relief effort—the special will air on Jan. 22 on ABC, NBC, HBO and CNN, as well as on all of MTV’s channels. Who knows what famous friends he’ll bring along on the air with him. [Huffington Post, Newser] Keep reading »
