Elisabetta Canalis: Not Having Kids with George Clooney

Elisabetta Canalis: Not Having Kids with George Clooney

Elisabetta Canalis rocks three different dresses during the 61st Sanremo Song Festival on Friday (February 18) at the Ariston Theatre in San Remo, Italy.

The 32-year-old Italian actress hit the stage with Argentinian model Belen Rodriguez and chatted with Robert De Niro, who was promoting his new romantic comedy Manuale d’amore 3.

Elisabetta recently opened up about her relationship with George Clooney and revealed she doesn’t plan on having any kids with the 49-year-old actor.

“[Getting pregnant has] never been an objective for me. My maternal desires are fully satisfied with my dogs,” she told the Italian edition of Cosmopolitan (via People).

But if he says : ** I want kids ** she will fly in a split second and get preggers.Tsk tsk tsk..anything to please your meal ticket !!!!

# 2

Ok I’m really not saying this to be mean, but I’m shocked at how bad she looks! She looks better when shedoes her own hair and makeup. What did they do to her? She looks like she lost weight and way too much makeup is making her look much older. She has a great body and these clothes are doing nothing for her.

# 3

Looks like a man.

Not want to be mean but she looks like a man!!

Pic number 5 EWWWW MAN

doesn’t this girl know that if she doesn’t keep her mouth shut george will end the relationship. it’s happened before.

# 7

Vai Elisabetta! Bella e brava :)

# 8

I have so much respect for any woman who is confident enough to say to the world who expects us all to Be moms, “no, motherhood is not for me, and that is fine”, LOVE IT!

# 9

Totally agree with Jane (post #8). Kudos to Elisabetta for being secure enough with herself to say “I’m completely satisfied without the need to have children.” She rocks in my opinion. Women who say, “I want to be a mom,” when they really don’t, but know that’s the expected response, only help to move women backward, not forward. It’s the 21st century. The sooner women feel secure enough to truly embrace their own choices, the better off we’ll all be.

Wed Feb 9 2011
Sources close to George Clooney announced today that back in early December, he ended a publicity agreement he had with Elisabetta Canalis. The agreement had lasted for nearly a year and a half, with the two having attended numerous events together during that time.
A friend of the actor said that the end of Clooney’s agreement with Canalis had been coming for a long time, and that ultimately, it was Canalis’s dishonesty that pushed things well past the breaking point. “George is basically an honest person. When he entered into this agreement with Canalis, he saw it only as a publicity tool. He never planned to talk about the relationship, since in reality there never was a relationship other than in a business sense. Canalis took things to a level George never expected, talking about the relationship in interviews as if it were real. Her lies gradually escalated to the point of even lying about George’s beloved father. George never anticipated or intended for anyone to be hurt due to his publicity arrangement with Canalis, but he now realizes that people he cares about were hurt. George feels terrible that his friends and loved ones have been affected by what was supposed to be a simple arrangement of making public appearances together.”
Clooney’s publicist, Stan Rosenfield, who has been rumored to have had a hand in setting up Clooney’s publicity contract with Canalis, could not be reached for comment.

It’s news to NO ONE that George does not want kids with Skanknalis. And no one believes this is Skanknalis’s decision. Once again we see the control theme in this press release, as we’ve seen in her past press releases. I guess the idea is to try to make the public think she has any kind of control or influence over Clooney, when the fact is she has no control or influence over him.
Another thing I noticed with this latest press release is that she’s trying hard to sell herself as his “girlfriend,” saying that she’s happy to participate at events as the “girlfriend of.” Now, pretend for a minute that she is his actual real girlfriend, and ask yourself whether that’s something a real girlfriend would say. WTF? You’re happy to be known at events as the girlfriend of? That’s something only a famewhore would say, but of course that’s actually the case here, and in this particular sentence she’s actually told the truth for a change. She’s only playing the role of girlfriend at photo op “events” and not in real life.

I’ve heard her english when she interviewed Robert De Niro: for people who was ashamed for her pronunciation in Leverage, I gotta say that was gold! … The first thing I thought between laughs was: “So is this her good english???” She wasn’t even able to grammatically build a question. But the most amazing moment has been when the presenter asked her to translate in italian a word spoken by De Niro (if I’m not wrong, it was “gentled”) and she didn’t make it! … Obviously she’s been in silence for seconds in a total embarrassment! … So Americans, you got it! This woman is totally yours: here in Italy we’re so happy she’s left because we’re full of this kind of useless (except in 1 context) people … Have you heard about Berlusconi’s scandal??

Anonymous @ 02/19/2011 at 2:02 pm

@squaraus: We don’t want her! You can keep her! LOL! We already have our Paris Hilton, and ours at least had sense enough to go into business rather than stick with “acting.” Nothing against Italians, though, as there are some wonderful Italian actresses and models we love. I would love to see more of Melissa Satta and Violante Placido, among others. The Berlusconi scandal is being covered in the news here, but it’s not getting as much coverage as other things.


Anon–George doesn’t want kids period. He has said this many many times. And he has stated unequivocally that he doesn’t want to get married again. Kids and marriage–never, ever. He has stated this several times. It doesn’t matter what she puts out there, anyone who knows Clooney from reading about him, knows he has said no to kids and marriage.

Check this out. She wore a prosthetic butt under her pants:
I guess it’s hard to photoshop when it’s live TV. LOL.

@Anonymous: We don’t want her too!!! :-))) … You know women like Canalis are good in the only thing they had success: showing her body and nothing more (as you can see). Melissa Satta had the same fame path of Canalis, because they started as “dancing” assistants in a satirical tv show (“Striscia la notizia”) in Berlusconi’s network, so I can establish who’s better between them. Maybe Satta is more honest with herself and the audience, because she came there in America working as a model and that’s what these girls are, nothing more. But she didn’t introduced herself like a famous actor fiancee and as an “actress” because that’s not her as you can see (she made some stupid tv fictions here in Italy, but no one considered her an actress).
I know that there are a lot of Americans “not happy” about her, but now she’s there so you have to take it!!! … ihihih

Just a few months ago she said she wants children and a family. LOL. She just wants to stay on the publicity gravy train, but she was kicked off of it already.

she’s ugly.
and she’s just saying that bec she’s desperate to hang on to george.
sad to give up your wants and desires for a man. boo. next.

Anonymous @ 02/19/2011 at 2:25 pm

@squaraus: Your English is very good! One of the things I like about Satta is that she didn’t do nude calendars and roles like Canalis did. You’re right too that Satta doesn’t pretend to be anything but a model, and she actually has the body of a model, tall with feminine curves, unlike Canalis. Placido is beautiful and a talented actress, would love to see her do more English-speaking roles.

Ugly woman with ugly tattoos.. btw.. don’t believe that she won’t have kids. If Georgy-Boy would fall on his knees and beg her to marry him. She would do it. If he wants her to have his babies.. she would do it, too!

I’ve heard the interview too yesterday. Well, English isn’t her first language, but I agree with you saying she isn’t an actress and she can’t even present in Italian.

@Anonymous: My opinion about Melissa Satta will remain positive only if she’ll continue her job as a model. Violante Placido is a very determined person and I’m sure you’re going to see something more about her (she’s totally fluent in english with a good American accent). But most of all, she’s a real actress, daughter of a famous actor and she’s not as all these useless starlets, who try to do everything to appear and let the world know they exist. So the talent will recompense people and they will get what they deserve. Only this. ;-)

@r: Yeah, she can’t even present (in italian).

friendofclooney @ 02/19/2011 at 3:25 pm

I think everyone should stop speculating about the true nature of George’s relationship with Canalis. This nightmare will be over soon. End of story. I wish folks would give George kudos for the great spotlight he put on Southern Sudan in January. This country’s vote has finally gained Southern Sudan it’s independence. This is a historic moment for Clooney. I am so proud of him and I love him to pieces for the beauty that is the heart of this man. I look forward to travelling to Southern Sudan to be part of the independence day celebrations. We all worked hard on this project with Clooney to bring this independence to fruition. We prayed endlessly as well.

Love my buddy for his work as an actor and a philanthropist. Give me some positive pub. Take the spotlight off Canalis now and watch her wither away into sudden obscurity for good. Love you George. Your friends and family love you, unconditionally.

Mu maternal instinct is satisfied with my dogs!!! What a SHAME! Come on people!

heathcliff @ 02/19/2011 at 3:54 pm

I think people who support Elisabetta’s statement are AFRAID to have children themselves.Guess what she only says this to keep George.She was singing different song before.As we all see for many people living in HO’WOOD having family and children is out of the question.They are addicted to other selfish pleasures.

runnergirl @ 02/19/2011 at 4:00 pm

@follower: you know it! She just doesn’t want to scare him

If we let HOLLYWEIRD and the majority of it’s useless inhabitants dictate what is right or wrong…we are doomed. Buonanotte

I’m italian too. I’m watching Sanremo Festival on Tv (the channel name’s is Rai 1 ). You’re american squaraus! You know nothing of melissa satta. Melissa Satta (Christian Vieri’s girlfriend) has made calendars. Canalis too. Elisabetta Canalis isn’t an actress: she’s a showgirl. Watch on youtube videos from Sanremo. Elisabetta can’t show.She’s not an host. She’s only: Elisabetta Canalis, George Clooney’s girlfriend.

Jokergurl @ 02/19/2011 at 4:05 pm

Duh. To be a good mother you have to think about something besides yourself, and have to be more mature than a fourth grader, just saying. That arm tattoo does not help this gals’ femininity either.

HEATHCLIFF : will surprise you, but there are women who choose not to have children and they have good grounds on which they thought long and hard. This does not depend neither convenience nor man of the moment.
She is just a miserable incompetent trying to grab what they can as long as she can.

TWPUMPKIN @ 02/19/2011 at 4:08 pm


1.Belen is beautiful
2.Biitch can’t even present or do anything she is in that stage just because of who her boyfriend is .
3.She is just saying she doesn’t want kids because he wants her to say so a girl can’t loose her meal ticket .

heathcliff @ 02/19/2011 at 4:15 pm


I hate when women sell themselves because of a man,trying to please him at their own expense.Of’course she is more interested in parties and trips,award shows and lake Como weekends at the moment.Who was she before ?She is shallow enough to choose attention over family and kids.He will leave her at some point.That’s what commitment phobes like him do.

She looks much, much better with her hair down and not up. She does appear more masculine when it’s away from her face.

HEATHCLIFF : I agree about her … I hate that people might believe that all women are like her or WORSE than take her as an example to follow.
Many girls believe that we can go far without anything, but only with the appearance.

Anonymous @ 02/19/2011 at 4:33 pm

@Ylenia: I was the one who mentioned Satta. The difference between Satta and Canalis is that Satta is a real model, and Satta has never posed nude with the recent exception of a body-painting shoot she did last year for Sports Illustrated. Canalis has posed nude many times, as you well know. Canalis even stripped off a nun’s habit in a soft porn movie, yet she claims to be Catholic, which is a joke.

@Ace: Better yet, her hair should completely cover her face.


Healthcliff–why should everyone want kids whether they are male or female. Not everyone should have kids and those that know it and don’t have them are to be admired. Not everyone who chooses NOT to have kids is selfish, self-centered, or afraid. They look at life and what it has dealt to them and what they want to deal with and they make choices. Not everyone is mother or father material. And I say good for you to anyone who decides they don’t want to procreate. There is always adoption if they change their minds late in life. Actually I admire folks who CAN have kids, but choose to adopt those children society doesn’t want rather than have their own. They are the ones to be admired.

not every woman wants children, especially in the world we live in today im only 28 years old and i dont scream desire to have children not yet, im a lawyer self employed very much able to support myself so i think its cool if she satisfied with her life plus i have dogs and they do give you unconditional love no matter what, and they dont answer back!

an Italian girl @ 02/19/2011 at 5:16 pm

c’mon, do you all think their relationship is true!?!!
she is just an Italian ***** who’s not able to be an actress while Clooney was looking for a woman to make people shut up about his homosexuality. He asked Gabriele Muccino who suggested that Clooney had to pretend he was in love with Canalis, in order to make her become a “Hollywood star”…ET VOILA!

I’m italian and I am so ashamed of her!!

Julie : Me too :-(

GOOD POINT @ 02/19/2011 at 5:45 pm

The question is why we are discussing this? Because Canalis wants us to. The contract ended in December, so she came up with this nonexistent thesis, tossed it to us and we discussing it, choking. She makes cretins out of us

In fact George and Canalis hate each other. They can even hardly develop their business relationships, what children are you talking about!!

ridiculous @ 02/19/2011 at 5:54 pm

Anyone who believes celebrity relationships are publicity negotiations are living in the dark ages. I read these comments all the time at JJ when the celebrity is a hot guy. You’re crazy to believe it unless, of course, it’s some reality tv setup!

Anonymous @ 02/19/2011 at 5:57 pm

@ridiculous: Anyone who believes there are no publicity relationships in Hollyweird is gullible. They happen all the time. This one was more obvious than most, as it was clear that George never really wanted to do it.

Dr. Leakey @ 02/19/2011 at 6:00 pm

After looking at her pics, I think it’s best that she not reproduce, and it seems probable that she was born without female reproductive equipment.

@Anonymous: @Anonymous: True but very sad

Degradant @ 02/19/2011 at 6:10 pm

And I admire people who do not grow food themselves or go to shop, but eat food from landfill….

@Ylenia: So Canalis is a showgirl: can she sing? No. Can she dance? No, at least very bad. Can she act? No, as the Italians (and recently American) have stated from tv. Can she present? No, as well as all the world is watching from Sanremo Music Festival. So how can we define a woman famous only for being a girlfriend of a man from the showbiz? Simply “nothingness”. I’m not only Italian, but during the university I’ve also met a guy from Sardinia who went at the same school of Canalis (not the same classroom) and all he declared about her is that she was a great mess in studying as well as a very stupid person. I don’t know if he was a former boyfriend or what else, but the story of this barely unknown woman (her fame pathway and her acts, as well as the cocaine scandals in Milan clubs) are simply confirming how cheap is this person. Of course a girl should not have to be a Paris Hilton or a Lindsay Lohan to be a w*ore. In other words, she’s not supposed to show that. I just hate people that do everything to be someone they’re not at all: before mating with Clooney, Canalis was one the errant girls who left “Striscia la notizia” show without finding a proper role in the Italian television and in the end she went to badly host TRL on MTV Italy. Her lucky castmate Maddalena Corvaglia ( tried to find different roles after “Striscia la notizia”, but she’s totally disappeared because these girls rarely have other duties to show. But since Canalis has become Clooney’s girlfriend, in Italy Berlusconi’s network is trying everything to identify her as the the successful girl from America and one of the consequences is that she’s badly hosting an important music festival that hardly could reach before meeting Clooney. And I don’t know how many other opportunities she’ll unfairly get.

to everyone, his job. @ 02/19/2011 at 6:44 pm

@Ylenia WTF are you saying? Would you prefer Belen? It’s true, Elisabetta Canalis isn’t perfect. you are? I don’t think so. So many people have done calendars. and she’s just another one of those. there’s just a different. it’s obvious that Elisabetta is not the best, but at least she’s trying to change. she’s not good in English,( but the 80% of italians isn’t.) she’s just “not a ****” showing, but she’s more better than Television **** of Italy and of USA.

overpopulation @ 02/19/2011 at 6:49 pm

@Degradant: yes, in some point I agree with you.On the background of overpopulation there is degradation of the human race going on. Only the best specimens must be fixated, degradants shouldn’t have children because their children will be doomed to even bigger problems than they have now.

she and Cameron Diaz both

to everyone, his job. @ 02/19/2011 at 7:05 pm

@squaraus: Wow. You met a guy from Sardinia!!!! who was in the same school of Canalis! Wow.
she’s not perfect. But in TV (also you American, with program as the kardashians, or Play Boy Maison, etc etc.) we have so many s*it that I support at all a girl who tries to change her life, in work and image, more than i would support people as Belen Rodriguez, who’s called as “model” but here she is a very tv-personality who can’t do anything.
She’s not the best, you’re right, but at least she tries. And before talking about italian tv, you should know that Canalis is presented like american upcoming star, not by Berlusconi’s network, but by the RAI, the national and pubblic tv. and i also think that you have a great politic phylosophy, but about TV, you don’t have to talk. the Italian tv is not the best, but your showbiz is worst (in morality) than ours. We have a First minister who goes with not-in-age girls (just one, actually) but we never had a actor, actress, pseudo-actress, or just appeared-in-reality person who have problems like your stars. (Paris Hilton, as stupidity, Lindsay Lohan, and other i really don’t remember the names) so let’s think. “to every Society its problems”. and stop talking about her pregnatness. everyone is free to decide to have or not children. so is she.

@to everyone, his job.: Court documents say “at least three minors”

@to everyone, his job.: For me it doesn’t matter if you don’t believe I’m Italian. The truth is what I’ve said and unfortunately many people know that. Make a life. ;-)

Woman looks like a donkey. I’m pretty sure no one would be disappointed that she opts not to have children. And as if Clooney will ever want to.

I’d love to see Monica Bellucci kicking this ugly *****’s ass.

Oh my she really has the ugliest legs I have ever seen. That’s why she always long dresses or pants. This is the first time I am seeing her in short dress. Now as to her comment that she is not having kids with Clooney. This woman is just his companion not his fiancee or wife yet. What a stupid thing for her to say this. Not that people in relationships can not have kids but this man has not promised her anything at all. It seems that they have just a business arrangement to walk together on red carpets as they live in two different countries for most of the year. I think she got mad that he publicly said that he is not gonna married and she just came up with this in return. Drama all the way. I see Clooney leaving her pretty soon.

@Anonymous: Silverscreen, why are you posting this again? What does a fake press release accomplish?

Calling Canalis an “actress” is an offence to the category.

She’s so ugly and not feminine at all. EEEEEWWWWWWWW

Reality Check @ 02/20/2011 at 8:17 am

I don’t get the hype around this woman. Her features are so rough she looks like a man in drag. From certain angles, her face is even awful, but then George Clooney isn’t exactly known for dating real beauties – most of his ladies are mediocre-looking at best.

If he finished with her in December, why on earth did he go on holiday with her whole family for Xmas and New Year? I say it is still on and unlike everybody else, he isn’t suffering from Elisabetta fatigue yet.

ah… oh so fugly & fatuous! GC GC your taste in wo-men are abhorrent.

Elisabetta Canalis interviewed Robert De Niro in what has been defined by Italian newspaper “an imbarassing intrview”, with silly questions and in her bed english, she’s asked to translate De Niro by herself without a real trnslator but during the interview she didn’t understand him.

too funny, watch it!

Read more:

@Reality Check: You have a point. But the thing is that George has such media dates not to make his real girl feel jealous. Xmas shooting was made much earlier, evidence is George’a beard in interview from Jan. 2

Canalis’ knowledge of English language is a silly joke.
The interview with De Niro is just the proof of that..go see it on Youtube if you want a good laugh out of it.
She flaunts her mastery of the language but actually her English is very weak.
I live in Italy and nobody gives a damn about this silly wannabe.

@Guest: He didn’t go on holiday with her.

Belen Rodriguez is pretty. Love her gladiator-style Roman dresses. he Even looks a little like the bodaciously beautiful Bellucci in some shots.

Canalis, on the other hand, is not an attractive site. Androgynous & obnoxious. Don’t even get me started on her awful body!
I’ve seen better legs on Jack Lemmon in drag in Some Like It Hot. And Dustin Hoffman looks sexier in a dress than as Tootsie!

oops, typo! She (Belen) looks a tiny bit like Bellucci in some photos.

Alexandraxy @ 02/20/2011 at 12:16 pm

I was wondering, is she getting away with it!?! I’m referring to the LAME try at interviewing De Niro.

Here’s the video, posted with the heading “embarrassing”

You can judge her English yourself….
Moreover, for those who can’t understand Italian:
Let alone the stupid and shallow questions….
She couldn’t understand much of what De Niro was saying. She hadn’t got a clue what “gentrified” means, she had to leave it and admit she didn’t know the word. Much worse, she changed, sometimes dramatically (even stating the exact opposite of what De Niro had declared), the meaning of De Niro’s words. Sje hadn’t got a clue!! Everybody in Italy is laughing at her! Italians had always heard from her (and her staff) that she could speak perfect English…..

She’s really a stupid poor girl, she don’t speak english, what a shame!!!! shame on you stupid Elisabetta!!!!!

I never thought that George was really into her as a girlfriend, I can usually tell with George.I never liked her from the start and i stated so many times…maybe thats why George only dates ugly girls..that way he doesnt get attached to them lol…

Yesterday on RAI 1, Canalis interviewed De Niro for 15 minutes but she have a problem (De Niro talk about a Italian society, and he says one word…. this word is “gentrify”), panic for the stupid Canalis what’s f*KING “Gentrify”… she says: Gentrifyyyyyy, So funny

Gladiator's Concubine @ 02/20/2011 at 2:42 pm

@fran: I think you might be right!! George chose Canalis as she’s very plain/ borderline lame, simply because he didn’t want to take her seriously. Since he’s been dating her, all the comments I hear about the way Canalis looks like are very negative:
“What a waste of a hunk! Something’s fishy….”
“What on earth does he see in her?”
“Butch…Horse….She-Male…Masculine….Bandly-legged trashy ho”
Enough already! Sort of makes sense now.

I mean, we all know Clooney is a sight for sore eyes, as handsome as he is! So you’d think he could get any beautiful woman he wants.
Canalis is just part of Berlusconi’s refuse.

ELMER FUDD @ 02/20/2011 at 6:10 pm

I am sick and tired of people telling me to be classy and refine! This ugly douchebag Italian jack off is so far removed from classy it is not funny!

George obviously has no issues with this about Canalis whatsoever. He is making lots of money due to this hookup and he is not going to quit her. You guys all know this. It was the same with Sarah Larson.

Let him stew in his own juices. He seems to like it this way.

Elisabetta Canalis is George Clooney’s girlfriend. No matter how much you rant and rave, and post fake press releases all around the world, and come up with one conspiracy theory more fantasical than the other ….. you are not going to change George’s behaviour. You can’t control what he does or the choices he makes in his private life. He doesn’t care what you think about his girfriend. If he did he would have chosen someone a bit classier and fan-friendly in the first place. He chose Canalis because he likes her. She’s his taste. Not yours, not mine, but HIS taste. He will stay with her or break up with her on his own timetable. You have no control over that. NONE. You’re putting yourself through a lot of anguish and stress over something you have no influence over. It’s sad to watch.
And no I am not a member of EC’s publicity team. I’m just a long term fan of Clooney’s who has come to accept the man for who he is — a great film maker, an extraordinary philanthropist, with a personal life that makes me chuckle and smack my forehead on occasions.

silverscreen @ 02/20/2011 at 9:03 pm

@Cora: I’m not trying to make George do anything. I’ve merely reported what’s already happened, about what most people already knew. What I have a problem with is Cagnalis’s dishonesty and intimidation tactics towards anyone who exercises freedom of speech and truth. She must have thought her trashy associates would have bullied me into silence by now, but that’s not happened, and it’s not going to happen. Besides which, it’s pretty much a non-issue at this point. If you locate the Daily Mail article to which the truthful press release was posted in the comments section, you’ll see that the vast majority of people agreed with it and already knew it was true. If you are gullible or delusional enough to believe Cagnalis’s press, that’s your problem, but we both know that’s not what you believe.


Reality Bites @ 02/20/2011 at 11:43 pm

George will not have kids. And due to the women he has dated over the last 15 years I can promise you 100% that he had a vasectomy to insure that he never accidentally got one pregnant. Women know going in that he is not going to marry them or anyone again and that kids are not a possibility.. not with him.

ELMER FUDD @ 02/21/2011 at 12:31 am

@Reality Bites- Is this from the Cloonster himself? Just curious.

Having George’s kids is definitely not a possibility for Cagnalis since she’s not sleeping with him. She might have a kid with her real boyfriend Davide Rombolotti, but I hope both of them get off the drugs before that ever happens.

@Reality Bites: You forgot about immaculate conception. Read Bible!

“False press releases” on Canalis somebody writes on this page…. Fake!?! The videos where she makes a fool of herself speak for themselves! No need to invent anything, which I wouldn’t do anyway.

Here’s another video where the two girls make a bit of a mess introducing one of the singers.
At ca. 0:52 in the video Canalis pronounces the name of the ITALIAN singer in the wrong way and is corrected by Belen Rodriguez, who is Argentinian!
Moreover! Watch here…. Starting from ca. 1:10, when the camera shifts from the singers to the two girls, Canalis is caught making strange and mocking faces/expressions, probably at the woman singer it has been supposed. Extremely unprofessional and, let’s be sincere, also very impolite!
Most viewers preferred Belen. She can dance and sing well, she speaks very good Italian, she is more beautiful, she’s spontaneous and natural. In short, she’s much better.

@Alexandraxy: I see what you mean! How unprofessional!!!! Canalis has a contemptuous, sarcastic expression on her face, which I presume is mocking the male singer’s sideburns.
All negative remarks about her butch physical appearance & lack of talent aside, the worst aspect about Canalis is her disgusting, nasty personality.
Delusional & supercilious sums her up!
George did himself a huge disservice associating with such riff-raff.


How many americans speak Italian fluently???

Ooooh NO:

Deniro talked about FRONTLINE …!

@st: Mi dispiace, ma io no sonno americana, o inglesa, o italiana, ma parlo inglese e italiano e tadesco (ecc…): dove è l’errore con Canalis que viva en USA, conclusione: canalis = silly.

I’m italian but …sorry …I don’t like Melissa Satta …in the interviews I saw she was always so full of herself. And, many say she’s done plastic surgery to her breast …and, in my opinion, she has no waist …she has a large, straight torso…not feminine at all !

Ohhh I’m sorry everything is my fault as I say Mexican Spanish accent
you move a lot and scratch
you’d probably need FROTLINE

@hannah: Scusa, ma Il tuo italiano fa schifo tanto quanto l’inglese di Canalis.

re video @ #99

I’ve developed a real girl crush on Belen Rodriguez. She is beautiful, professional, gracious, and has a very appealing natural ease about her. She dances well and sings too!

Hot for Rodriguez @ 02/21/2011 at 1:34 pm

#107 That isn’t very kind, and Hannah is not being paid to speak Italian!

@Hot for Rodriguez: Canalis isn’t a professional interpreter.

Hot for Rodriguez @ 02/21/2011 at 2:00 pm

@st Excuse me, I meant no offense. I just wildly assume that Canalis was properly prepped and well-rehearsed before the interview in which she acted as a translator while Hannah is just casually posting here. IMO, you’re comparing apples to oranges; it is unkind to snipe at a fellow poster.

@Hot for Rodriguez: I meant absolutely no offense. Hannah and others were saying Canalis is silly because she doesn’t speak perfect English. Who is unkind?

horse-face was only a ugly cokewo.hre before she met Clooney!!!
she’s really ugly!!!

I am Italian too and DON’T feel ashamed of Elisabetta Canalis at all. She is humble and amusing, she did some funny things on Italian TV, she is gifted with irony, she has NEVER boasted about her relationship with Clooney and she deserves applause for her sincere statement about not wanting kids. She is genuine and she has never said conformist things to play up to the public like MOST of your American celebs do. Finally, she “looks like a man” to the same degree as your comments are unbiased and clever .

@fran: @hannah:

oh yeeees, and ”gentrified” is in fact one of the most widely known English words, isn’ it…
Apart from gentrifiy (only few sociologist – and De Niro- know that term) and some other forgivable syntactic mistakes, she did a nice job and De Niro could perfectly understand her.


rodriguez corrected canalis on a surname? AND SO WHAT? This doesn’t mean that rodriguez is a PhD, this only means that she (rodrigues) was far speedier to read on the autocue. Moreover a SURNAME IS A SURNAME, not a noun, not a verb, and it can easily be mispronunciated. By the way Rodriguez speaks an AWFUL iTALIAN, she’s got an accent, but nobody complains about it the same way they complain about canalis’ s English. And that was an ITALIAN tv show.

Skankanalis is an insult to all the beautiful and cultured women that Italy has.

I agree with you #119!
in San remo horse-face has been a total!!! patetic and ridicolous cokewore!

Her STDs are probably what preclude her from having kids. And in order to have George’s kids, she’d have to actually be sleeping with him, which she’s not.

Rodriguez speaks extremely good Italian, surprising if you think that she has been living in Italy for 1 year. She’s got an accent which, by the way, is very charming, but she speaks fluently and correctly (good grammar, rich vocabulary). That’s why nobody complains about it. Everybody understands what she says.
The same, I fear, can’t be said for Canalis, whose English is simply embarrassing (read my post above, the one about the interview, if you want a more detailed explanation on her linguistic skills). I judge merely from a linguistic point of view and I’m entitled to do it, I’m bilingual and I’ve got a PhD (you say Rodriguez hasn’t, but I have) in English language/literature/history.
In any case, I’m a very liberal person and I strongly believe in “freedom of opinion”. Moreover, you can’t argue about taste – you may find Canalis or whoever beautiful or ugly, “a horse-faced and short-legged anorexic monkey” (this is not mine, I confess, I read it somewhere) or a sexy and gorgeous siren, but FACTS are FACTS!
She can’t speak English (despite declaring that she speaks perfectly) and, judging from her performances (acting, dancing, interviewing or whatever), that’s not the only thing she can’t do.
Se non capisci ti traduco tutto in italiano.
