On Thursday the 52-year-old George Clooney was spotted with a mystery lady in London.  The dapper actor enjoyed dinner with a willowy brunette at Berners Tavern in the centre of the English capital and the pair seemed to be having a great time.

The mystery lady wore a red dress, long grey coat, bright red lipstick and glittery silver boots for her meal at the upmarket eatery. The lady in red was identified as Amal Alamuddin.

Based in Britain, Alamuddin works far outside the entertainment industry. Alamuddin is a lawyer who specializes in international law, human rights, extradition and criminal law.

Not only has she served as an advisor to the United Nations as a consultant on crises in Syria and Lebanon, Alamuddin is also currently representing a high-profile client. According to reports she is currently representing WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange in his extradition proceedings with Sweden.

In addition she speak three languages, English, Arabic, and French; and was voted No. 1 on London’s Hottest Barrister list of 2013. Clooney, for his part, has racked up multiple wins for People magazine’s annual “Sexiest Man Alive” competition.

The fact that Clooney would be attracted to someone who is connected with the political arena makes sense, given Clooney’s hands on philanthropy work and human’s rights advocacy. Over the past few years Clooney has been very vocal about the conflict in Darfur. In addition, George also has strong family ties as Clooney’s father Nick Clooney was an American journalist and reported against the sensationalism in the media.

Actually, in 2010 Clooney’s name actually came up in a WikiLeaks diplomatic Apparently, Clooney was part of a handful of stars, along with shows, who are more effective at preventing Jihad than the U.S. government funded station, Al-Hurra. His movie, “Michael Clayton,” was specifically mentioned.

In 2012 George Clooney was arrested outside of the Sudanese Embassy and charged with civil disobedience during a protest, writes the Inquisitr.

However, according to the Us Weekly reports, the A-list actor is still quietly seeing “Croatian Sensation” Monika Jakisic.

“Monika and George are dating,” the insider says of the pair, who first hooked up back in 2004 and then rekindled their fling in September, after Clooney’s July split from Stacy Keibler.

“She’s not his official ‘girlfriend’ yet, but they’ve become very close. She has been seeing George almost every night.”

The 33-year-old model lives in London, where the Oscar-winning actor has been shooting the upcoming movie The Monuments Men, and as another insider shared with the publication, she  has “an incredible connection” with Clooney.

“They danced and held hands” at London nightclub Loulou’s back in May, the source added. “He’s been calling and texting her ever since.”

At the time, Clooney insisted the story was false. He said: “The story is made up. I wasn’t holding anybody’s hand.?

An American magazine then claimed the couple spent the night at Clooney’s mansion on September 25 after meeting up again in Los Angeles.

“They spent hours talking, and have an incredible connection,” an insider said.
