La revista Vanity Fair en su edición italiana dedica su portada al secretario personal del papa, el arzobispo alemán Georg Gänswein, bajo el título: «Padre Georg, ser guapo no es un pecado».«Ayer los tirabuzones largos y los Pink Floyd, hoy la fama de sacerdote severo, que recibe cartas de amor, pero es también la eminencia gris del Vaticano, sobre todo tras ser promovido a arzobispo titular de Urbisaglia y nuevo Prefecto de la Casa Pontificia», escribe Vanity Fair sobre Gänswein.

La famosa revista resalta en ese resumen una frase del secretario de Benedicto XVI cuando recibió un premio y con la que resumió sus obligaciones. «Personalmente veo mi papel o servicio al Pontífice como un cristal. Más limpio está, más alcanza su objetivo. Tengo que dejar entrar el sol y cuanto menos se vea el cristal mejor. Y si no se ve nada, quiere decir que desarrolla bien su trabajo», dijo Gänswein. Vanity Fair, que le llama el «George Clooney del Vaticano», agrega: «Aparecerá siempre menos, pero siempre tendrá más poder».

En la portada de la revista, Vanity Fair agrega, debajo de «Padre Georg, ser guapo no es pecado», la frase: «Del George Clooney de San Pedro a número dos del Vaticano: tras la ordenación de obispo, retrato de cerca de un monseñor particular».

En 1996 fue transferido a la Congregación para la Doctrina de la Fe y en este dicasterio ejerció como secretario personal del prefecto, entonces cardenal Joseph Ratzinger, hoy Benedicto XVI.
