La Dolce Vita

by | 3rd, September 2003

‘SOUTH Yorkshire’s finest are at least doing better than Hollywood hunk George Clooney, who is this morning moaning that he can’t find a girlfriend.

‘Oooooh, George!’

The 42-year-old heartthrob pours his heart out to Vanity Fair – and the Star happily eavesdrops on the conversation.

George’s problem, it seems, is not a lack of blonde inspectors willing to take down his details, but a surfeit of them.

The former ER star says even in Italy, where he spends half the year in his £5m villa on Lake Como, he gets mobbed by lust-crazed fans every time he goes out.

“That kind of frenzy – you have to be really up for it,” he says. “Dinner out is an ordeal.

‘I’ve literally gone out to dinner and a girl comes over to the table and says ‘Can I have a kiss?’ I go back to the house and the photograph is on TV. It’s hysterical.”

But it’s not just obsessed fans that are stopping George living la dolce vita – he can’t speak the lingo.

“I knew I was in trouble during a phone conversation,” he says of one Italian girlfriend. “She’d just say ‘Oh, George’ and I’d just say ‘Ohhh, you’.”

It may be frustrating, but plenty of couples have got together with an even smaller vocabulary – just look at David and Victoria Beckham.’
