George Clooney's Ex Says They Had A 'Father-Daughter' Relationship

George Clooney's former girlfriend Elisabeth Canalis is offering some new insight into their relationship—just what the world has been longing for! But seriously, she actually had some nice things to say about her former beau of two years, the world's sexiest salt-and-pepper serial monogamist, calling him "One of the best people I have met from a charitable point of view." Okay, fine, but from there her praise of Clooney gets a bit odd. She says he's, "the person who valued my feminine side the most." That's not exactly a bad thing, but what does it even mean? Oh, maybe this tidbit will help us understand:

[H]e has been special for me, and very important, just as a father would be. … [B]etween us there was more of a father-daughter relationship. I was unable to clarify this up 'til now.

Hmm. Hmmmmm. Well, it's nice for her that she's finally figured that out. Make of it what you will! [People]

  • The other night at a charity sale to raise money for an AIDS charity, Sandra Bullock's agents, Kevin Huvane and Bryan Lourd, did a little something special for their famous client: "Bullock's reps decided to dig deep to win a print of Warhol's famous Peaches artwork as a present for the Hollywood star's adopted tot, Louis." Okay, on the one hand it seems insane to give a Warhol to a toddler. On the other hand, it's for charity, and he can sell it to pay for college someday. (College is going to be REALLY EXPENSIVE in the future.) Also, another thing, can everyone please stop always prefacing Louis's name with the fact that he's adopted? It's time we just start calling him her son, plain and simple! [Daily Express]

  • Little Justin Bieber is growing up right before our very eyes, and no one has expressed this more classily than his manager Scooter Braun who recently told Billboard that with Bieber's latest album, "Vocally, his balls have dropped." Very nice image! He compared Bieber to The Beatles: "I don't want to draw comparisons, but there was a band during the British Invasion that had girls screaming at them. I think you know who I'm talking about." Yeah, we do know who you're talking about, but let's not get ahead of ourselves here, Scootiepie. [Billboard]

    I'd say about 45 minutes a night is what I sleep. It's a special situation and I cry. Mama cries. The child is a saint, but it's horrifying. You're too tired to enjoy how precious this time is…It is very challenging.

    Hopefuly she can get some shut-eye soon. [E! Online]
