Burn! George Clooney's Ex Calls Him A "Father Figure"

| Filed under: Love LineGeorge Clooney

Guess that means someone has some serious Daddy issues!

Relationships, particulary ones in Hollywood, end for a multitude of reasons. The important thing is to remember what you took away from that relationship that helped you grow as a person. For Elisabetta Canalis, we imagine the biggest thing she took away from dating George Clooney was her international exposure. Truly, something to be grateful for.

Baring that in mind, you would imagine that Lis would only have nice things to say about her former Silver Fox. Indeed, she hasn't spilled any detrimental secrets from their time together, but she's taking a jab at George's ego all the same. In a new interview, she reveals that her relationship with George had more of a "father-daughter" dyamic than a romantic one. She explains:

"[He is] the person who valued my feminine side the most … one of the best people I have met from a charitable point of view. He has been special for me, and very important, just as a father would be."

Ouch! That has to sting!

Ladies, that is the equivalent of a guy telling a girl she reminds him of his mother or he thinks of her like a sister. No one wants to hear that someone they previously boned! Hurts their rep!

Poor Georgy!

    Oh-oh - did someone break their confidentiality agreement? George will not be happy. Is she saying that there was no sex, or that she had sex with her father? Either way - yuck. Or is she just calling him old?

    Oh really Elisabetta? and when you say that he's "one of the best people I have met from a charitable point of view", are you talking of all the bills he paid for you? When you hooked up with him, didn't you know there was an age difference? But of course, it didn't matter then, right? You just took the BIG OPPORTUNITY to move your silly ass to the States with a sugar daddy, since you were/are a "has been" here in Italy.. Really, you sound just like the bimbo who left Hugh Hefner the day before wedding. Take my 2 cents: keep your silly mouth shut and start shaking your money maker, because NO ONE is going to pay your bills now.

    well, he actually looks like a 60 yo gentleman, bags under his eyes, big chin, just like old men, lower lip more prominent than the upper lip, his teeth look like a denture for the last 30 years… and what about his body? ai! he's not a toddler figure, i can say that… things change. just because a person was hot once, it doesn't mean that person will be hot forever… happens to all of you people, except for me… just look at my body. it's way better than that now. ;-)

    Most women dating Clooney should know they are temporary trophy fucks to be replaced when their time is up.

    Gee Elisabetta. You did know that he is GAY and is in a long-time GAY relationship with Rande Gerber, the "husband" of that alternative lifestyle supermodel, Cindy Crawford, right??? Of course ya did!!!

    Oh man, what a shot. Ouch.

    my friend's step-mother makes $63 an hour on the laptop. She has been without a job for 9 months but last month her check was $6913 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Here's the site CashHard.com

    Well he probably is old enough to be her father.



  9. 9

    Girl is bitter cause he dumped her. If she had any class, she would not comment on George Clooney or use him to get publicity. But she has no class.

    I'm guessing something was just lost in translation here.

    Re: GuidetteInItaly – - It certainly didn't matter to HIM at the time, did it? He can add, he knows the only reason a gorgeous young thing would be involved with him is because of his status and money. Why do you people always go after the women in these situations…the man is just as much at fault if there is blame. They are going after these young girls because they can. If these men honestly believe these girls are going out with them because they get turned on by having a wrinkly, flabby assed old man grunting on top of them, they are deluding themselves. They both know the rules.

    Hey English major… it's bearing in mind — not baring in mind..

  13. @v@ says – reply to this

    Comprehension much? She said 'just as a father would be,' NOT LIKE a father.
    There's a distinct difference, imo. It simply means he's had an influence that she considers of great value to her almost to the degree that a father might. That's nice. George has character.

    Your attitude to relationships is really creepy. Two people were together for a long time, they loved each other and were a big part of each others lives with all the meshing of family, memories and friends that entails - all you see is 'international exposure'.



  15. 15

    Ummmm….yeah…he's really a father figure to any of the young things he hooks up with…he should realize that. He should have dated J.Aniston when she was free….that would be a woman who could be his partner, not a child for him. No wonder he doesn't want to marry, he can have his children and bed them too!.

    I would have to read the whole conversation before making judgement. This little snippet you posted isn't enough to know what she really meant. I think you are trying to make something out of nothing. And even if she did mean that he was like a father figure to her, how is that insulting? That may have been just the dynamic to their relationship and why they eventually decided to break up. Grow up Perez.

    She looks like a drag queen from the punk bar.



  18. 18

    My husband knew her back in Milan when she was still hitting the nightclubs trying to score coke & she was dating for publicity back then too. Hopefully Clooney will think twice before dating a woman who obviously needs a father figure still.

    another hollywood wannabe w/ daddy issues! what a surprise



  20. 20

    I find her passive-aggressive attitude hilarious. Good for her.



  21. 21

    Hey Stupids, she might have meant he was kind to her, treated her like an adult woman instead of a piece of sex… made her realize she was worth something. No?



  22. 22

    He's GAY People! Trust!



  23. 23
