London: Italian beauty Elisabetta Canalis says dating George Clooney is "better than plastic surgery" because he makes her feel so young.
The 31-year-old model is blissfully happy with the Hollywood heartthrob and says he makes her feel 18 again.
"He's better than plastic surgery," she joked.
The brunette beauty, who has been dating the actor for over a year, is looking forward to the Primetime Emmy Awards later this month, when her 49-year-old lover will receive the Bob Hope Humanitarian Award, Entertainment Tonight reported.
"I'm very proud. It's a very important award. I'll be there with him," she said.
Canalis recently claimed her happiness is the best "revenge" against people who are jealous of her romance.
The model-and-actress said, "Those who criticise or invent stories about us are jealous. I have heard of women - even famous women - that due to this relationship they removed his photo as screensavers from their computers. But in the end the best revenge over these jealous people is to be happy."
She insists she isn't only attracted to George because of his good looks, she also finds his "humanity and ability in giving to others" very appealing.
