George Clooney To Sell Italian Dream Home

Asking George Clooney to “say cheese” near his home hits too close to home, as the A-lister is selling his beloved Italian villa on Lake Como, RadarOnline.com has learned, because he’s fed up with the constant presence of leering paparazzi in the area.

Clooney bought the home eight years ago for about $10 million, according to TimesOnline.co.uk.

His gorgeous Italian girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis, according to the Web site, was “furious and exasperated” over the presence of the pesky shutterbugs, who she said “made [their] life hell.”
