Elisabetta Canalis born 12 September 1978 in Sassari, Sardinia, Italy is a model and actress. Canalis had minor roles in the films Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo and Virgin Territory.
She was also a "Velina" in the television show Striscia la notizia. In 2007, she hosted the annual music festival - Festivalbar.
In 2009, she co-hosted the Italian version of Total Request Live. She is currently dating George Clooney, as both have been spotted romancing at his lakeside estate.
Her parents are Cesare and Bruna, he is a radiologist in Sassari’s University clinic and she is an Italian literature teacher. She has a brother named Luigi.
Elisabetta obtained her school–leaving certificate at “Azuni” Classical High School in Sassari. Then left Sardinia and moved to Milan to study foreign languages at “Università Statale”. Milan gave her the great chance to enter the show business.
Everything began in 1999 with a lucky trial for “Striscia la notizia”, a funny TV show that launched Elisabetta as a show-girl, a so-called “velina”. She had great success and worked for that show until 2002.
After that amazing experience she started looking around, searching for new projects and was involved in TV shows, commercials and serials.
Her next goal was to become a movie star and has taken her first steps in this field joining some international productions.
Elisabetta is really keen on horses. When she was a child she used to ride and also took part in some horse shows. One of her dreams is to spend more time with these beautiful animals.
She used to practice several sports in her spare time: swimming and dancing are her favourite activities but lately is also practicing Kick boxing.
