Beam him up, Sandra. George, we have a problem. I am very excited to report that Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, two of our faves, will be teaming up for a new flick that takes place in outer space. The movie “Gravity” will be directed by the awesome Alfonso Cuaron (of “Children of Men” and “Y Tu Mamá También” fame), who also wrote the script, and tells the story of two astronauts who are the sole survivors of a space station explosion. Originally, Robert Downey Jr. was set to play the male lead, and Cuaron wanted Angelina Jolie or Natalie Portman for the female lead, but we’re way more happy with the Sandra/George pairing. Let’s hope they’ll be the new Brangelina and fall in love on set. (Sorry, Elisabetta Canalis.) Or at least show us in the movie how astronauts have sex in space. We’ve always wondered about that.

Over the weekend, while dining with George Clooney in Italy, Elisabetta Canalis waved her hand in the air, showing off a bauble on her ring finger. Fellow diners, and naturally the paparazzi, thought the item on her finger was an engagement ring. Which made everyone assume that George had popped the question. But George’s rep says that is not the case—and that it was a napkin ring Elisabetta had put on her finger as a joke. Hilarious? [People]

“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 »
