Elisabetta Canalis shares her excitement about boyfriend George Clooney and her U.S. acting debut. The Italian stunner says that spending time with George makes her feel like she’s 18 again, joking, “He’s better than plastic surgery!”
As for her next red-carpet appearance with George, Elisabetta says she’ll be there for him as he collects the Bob Hope Humanitarian Award at the Emmys later this month. “I’m very proud; it’s a very important award,” she says. “I’ll be there with him.”
On TNT’s “Leverage,” Elisabetta plays a shadowy intelligence agent known only as “The Italian,” who blackmails Timothy Hutton’s main character, Nate Ford. “I’m very happy to be here,” says Elisabetta. “It’s a privilege for me, staying here with Tim and all of the cast; they are amazing and they are helping me a lot.”
She says that her first TV job was as a presenter – and reveals a key reason why she didn’t follow the modeling path: “I’m too short for modeling; I’ve always been too short. I prefer doing what I do.”
Leverage films in Portland, does this mean George will be in my town?
