George Clooney And Elisabetta Canalis Call It Quits

Hollywood’s sexiest couple have called it a day after two years.

George Clooney and Italian model Elisabetta Canalis released a joint statement, saying: “We are not together anymore. It’s very difficult and very personal, and we hope everyone can respect our privacy.”

Canalis’ publicist added: “It is a very personal and sad matter, and Elisabetta wants it to remain that way. She will be taking some time…and then will face the press. She has not authorized me to say when the split happened.”

Just this month 32-year-old Canalis had suggested that she would like to one day get married, despite Clooney, 50, repeatedly saying that he would never marry again. Clooney was married from 1989 to 1993 to actress Talia Balsam but has maintained that marriage is just not for him.

For the moment it looks like the split was amicable. Last week the two were spotted having a meal near Clooney’s villa in Como, northern Italy, and last month they celebrated his 50th birthday together at a party in LA.
