Well-placed sources tell the New York Post that the "Mystery Man" referred to in Teri Hatcher's Vanity Fair interview that is, the lover who dispatched her in such a way that the Desperate Housewives star was shaken enough to come forth about her sexual abuse as a child is none other than George Clooney. A rep for the newly minted Oscar winner tells the Post, "I doubt very seriously that your source is credible." UPDATE!!! Clooney tells Friday's Access Hollywood the speculation "isn't true," adding that it "takes away from [Hatcher's] brave decision" to help incarcerate her molester.
