Ah, La Dolce Tweeta!
Italian model/actress Elisabetta Canalis - a.k.a. George Clooney's girlfriend - has found herself in hot water over claims that she insulted Jennifer Aniston on Twitter. The offending remark? That ragged rocker Iggy Pop looks like Jennifer Aniston.
An upset Canalis, however, said it was all a misunderstanding. "I JUST READ ON GOOGLE That I TWEETED something bad about J Aniston, let me be clear, it's a complete LIE, I would never do that!!" she tweeted on Tuesday.
The truth, Canalis said, is that on Monday she accidentally re-tweeted someone else's remark written in Italian about the resemblance.
After learning that the comment was attributed to her and after cooking fish filets and coconut rice (as she mentions on Twitter) - Canalis went back online to clear the air, explaining that she was new to tweeting and was not sure what "retweet" meant. Later, she added, "Unbelievable. Try to think if I would have really said that."
Clearly, Canalis wants to make it known that she has no problems with Aniston. Inviting her for a week-long getaway to Clooney's Lake Como villa certainly couldn't hurt.
