George Clooney’s hot girlfriend, Italian model Elizabetta Canalis is certainly comfortable in her own skin. She’s posing for PETA in a new anti-fur campaign that features her at her uninhibited best.
Canalis, 32, who also works as a television host in Italy, is the latest celebrity to bare all for the cause of animal rights.
“I think this is the best reason why I got naked in my life,” Elisabetta said.
PETA, short for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, has enlisted a slew of celebrities over the years to pose without clothes in daring, but tasteful ads to promote their cause.

But Canalis removes all pretension. She poses against a navy blue background, and allowed un-retouched photos to be released to tease the campaign. PETA released the behind the scenes video.
“I was a kid, a little girl, and was watching TV at home and they showed a documentary,” she said during filming.
“And in the documentary I saw how they killed little animals, like electrocuting them, drowning them, bludgeoning them.
“I was shocked because I was a little girl, but by that moment I thought that I would never, never, never, wear fur in my life,” she said.
Canalis has been dating Clooney since 2009, making her one of his longest-running girlfriends, and she recently told Italy’s Cosmopolitan magazine, she is content with the relationship.
“My maternal desires are fully satisfied with my dogs,” she said.
Incidentally, Elisabetta posed with one of her own adopted dogs in the photo shoot.
