George Will Break From Awards to Host a Haiti Telethon

George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis took last night off from their dedicated award show attendance to attend a private reception for his film Up in the Air at NYC's Monkey Bar. They'll be back on the red carpet Sunday for the Golden Globes — make sure to fill out Buzz's ballot before the big day! In their downtime between events, Elisabetta has apparently been patiently teaching George Italian. He's set to use a few of his free hours next week for the more philanthropic cause of helping Haiti, like his friends Brad and Angelina; George is set to host a telethon on MTV next Friday to raise money for the people affected.
