Happy 33rd Birthday, Elisabetta Canalis! (PHOTOS)

/ September 12, 2011

Beautiful Italian Actress Elisabetta Canalis turns 33 today, and she has plenty to be happy about. Sure, she’s no longer dating George Clooney, but who needs him when you’ve got a spot on Dancing With the Stars’ upcoming 13th season?

Of course, Clooney did catapult her to fame in the U.S. when the then-couple arrived together at the Venice Film Festival in 2009. There, she wore a fur coat and a beautiful pink-satin strapless dress that had the cameras going bezerk. The couple dated for two years before separating in June 2011. 

The Italian beauty made her big screen debut in 2005’s Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo, and in 2010 she had a recurring role on the TNT series Leverage.
