GEORGE Clooney is helping his girlfriend launch an acting career.
The Hollywood hunk — who has been dating Italian model Elisabetta Canalis for the past year — has reportedly agreed to make his lover a leading lady.
“George’s sudden change of heart proves he’s totally lost his heart,” a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer.
“Elisabetta’s appeared in minor acting roles, and lately she’s gotten half a dozen juicy movie offers — mainly because of the couple’s highly publicized romance.
“But George pooh-poohed every deal. He told her she wasn’t ready for leading lady status. Talk about tension! Elisabetta felt George wanted her to be content sharing his limelight, instead of creating her own, so she gave him an ultimatum: She’ll chase her dream of stardom — with him or without him.”
The source says George has enrolled Elisabetta in acting classes with top professionals, personally reads scripts she’s offered and coaches her daily.
“George is telling pals he loves Elisabetta more than any woman he’s ever known,” said the pal. “
“He’s helping her with her movie career — and grooming her as his leading lady!”
