Actor George Clooney debuts girlfriend at the Venice Film Festival

September 9, 2009

(ChattahBox) — George Clooney rolled out his latest girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis to their first official public premiere as a couple, at the Venice Film Festival yesterday. Unlike Sarah Larson who failed to be discreet enough for the very private actor, Elisabetta Canalis is quite used to being under the spotlight as a TV presenter in Italy. She accompanied George on the red carpet at the premiere of his latest movie The Men Who Stare At Goats, which which co-stars Ewan McGregor and Jeff Bridges. The pair have reportedly been together for two months, after being introduced by a friend of George’s in Rome.

George got a rather comical offer to leave Elisabetta and ‘switch sides’ at the Film Festival. During the press conference for his new film, Italian fan Mauro Casciari stripped down to his underpants, which had the words: “George, pick me,” felt-tipped onto the crotch. He then shouted, “I love you, George,” before being escorted from the room by security guards. Clooney remained unflappable. First saying “It’s hard when you take a chance and it doesn’t really work” and then joking: “You stay there, there’s a little ambulance on its way here.”

Speaking later, Cascaria explained: “I wanted him to come out [as gay] and offered myself to him. So I wrote on my underwear ‘choose me’, and stripped off. I didn’t get the answer I wanted.”
