PHOTOS: Sexy Italian Actress Violante Placido is the Only Highlight of George Clooney’s ‘American’
Thinking about seeing the new George Clooney flick, “The American”? Let me save you $13 and two of the most numbingly boring hours you'd spend a movie theater all year and share with you the only real highlight of the film: the gorgeous Violante Placido. This sexy Italian bird plays a prostitute who Clooney bangs repeatedly (he tips well) before falling in love with her, all the while preparing for his last assignment as a hired assassin in a tiny Italian village. And, oh yeah, he thinks she might be out to kill him. I know it sounds interesting, but it's really not. The film is nicely shot (although it's Italy, it's not that hard) and Clooney plays the George Clooney-as-assassin role pretty much by the numbers. But the action that's in the 2:30 trailer is the only action in the entire nearly two-hour movie. As a friend of mine asked as we walked out of the theater last night, “Was that the sequel to 'Watching Paint Dry'?”
But back to the issue at hand: the beautiful Violante Placido, who gets very nekked throughout the movie (ah, Europe, gotta love it). Check out a full gallery of her sexiest photos after the jump.
