George Clooney’s girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis has finally broken her silence on her romance with one of the most desirable bachelors in Hollywood.
The Italian model, 31, said that dating Clooney has led to much envy. “There are some people who just don’t want to see me happy,” UsMagazine.com quoted her as telling Italian Vanity Fair.
The aspiring actress, who was recently alleged to have been linked to a cocaine and prostitution ring in Italy, also reveals that the constant criticism sometimes causes her to question her 11-month relationship with 49-year-old Clooney.
“I sometimes feel insecure, but if you are loved, then you always feel great. He [George] reassures me all the time. He is very close. I feel more embraced than ever before.”
And while Canalis says that most of the criticism stems from jealousy, she still finds it hard to understand why people question her motive behind dating Clooney. “I know some women, very high profile women, who have taken his picture off their computer desktop.”
Not that Canalis is looking for anyone else’s approval. “The idea of being so loved is overwhelming. George has given colour back to my life. I feel great — it’s as if I am 18 again!” she adds.
