The Italian beauty feels targeted by other ladies out there who wish they could be dating Clooney, too.
She told Italian Vanity Fair (via Usmagazine.com): "I know some women, very high profile women, who have taken his picture off their computer desktop. Maybe I should not get so stressed over it. At the end though the best way to confront this envy is to be happy, but it's just that they won't forgive.
Don't Miss: "There are some people who just don't want to see me happy."
However, the 31-year-old is definitely happy with her hunky beau, despite the haters -- and Clooney knows just how to make her feel confident.
She said, "I sometimes feel insecure, but if you are loved then you always feel great. [George] reassures me all the time. He is very close. I feel more embraced than ever before.
"The idea of being so loved is overwhelming. George has given color back to my life. I feel great -- it's as if I am 18 years old again!"
