Elisabetta Canalis Says She Had "Father-Daughter" Type Relationship With George Clooney

Italian TV personality and former George Clooney girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis recently revealed that her relationship with George Clooney bordered on a father-daughter type relationship.

Canalis revealed details about her relationship with the A-List actor in the upcoming book Questo Amore(This Love) by Italian journalist Bruno Vespa.In the book Canalis, 33, praised Clooney, 50, for being "the person who valued my feminine side the most" and "also one of the best people I have met from a charitable point of view."

Revealing the "father" aspect of their relationship she said of Clooney "he has been a special for me, and very important, just as a father would be" while elaborating "between us there was more of a father-daughter relationship. I was unable to clarify this up 'til now."

In the book Canalis also says it wasn't Clooney's aversion to marriage that caused their relationship to end:

"George and I never spoke of marriage nor of having kids," she says. "I don't put limits to the possibility of having them, but neither George nor I had ever envisaged having kids together. The end of the relationship was not caused by a marriage issue, but instead by our personal needs."
Clooney is now dating Stacy Keibler and in the meantime he's still getting two thumbs up from Elisabetta Canalis, not bad for a serial dater who could have been portrayed in a different light.
