She stated,

“When I came out after I spent time with George, George went to him and said, ‘If you don’t marry her, I will. George is not gonna marry anybody except for Amal. He was waiting 30 years to do that.  But that was sort of the thing that sort of got him to just hang with me, the boyfriend. “So we were together for four years after that, thanks to George.”

Although the actress didn’t reveal who was the mysterious man, the situation proved that even after leaving the role of The Dark Knight behind, Clooney still hasn’t lost the antics of Bruce Wayne.
