George Clooney and girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis have split up.

The Ocean's Eleven heartthrob and the Italian actress, who began dating two years ago, issued a joint statement announcing they were "not together anymore".

They added: "It's very difficult and very personal and we hope everyone can respect our privacy."

Shortly after the couple met they were photographed riding a motorbike near Lake Como in the summer of 2009. The Oscar-winning actor has a villa on the lake, where he spends part of the year.

Meanwhile George's highly anticipated new movie about a US presidential campaign will open this year's Venice Film Festival.

The Ides of March, which stars George, Ryan Gosling, Paul Giamatti and Philip Seymour Hoffman, will have its world premiere screening on August 31 following the event's opening ceremony.

Festival organisers said the film will be competing for the coveted Golden Lion award.

Oscar-winner George has often attended the Venice festival, which runs until September 10.

You and your neighbours will benefit from a beautiful gathering spot. It's easy to feel alienated in this technological age. Create a space where you can escape computers, telephones and artificial lighting. Don't be surprised when you feel compelled to visit this sanctuary every day. Spending time outdoors will make you more relaxed and productive.More
