Despite the umpteenth (and bogus) Star story claiming that Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt are sneaking around behind Angelina Jolie's back (seriously, it is that slow of a news week?), UK mag Grazia is reporting that Jen has a new man in her life. Although this new man was one of her co-stars in The Bounty Hunter, it's not Gerard Butler, to whom she was previously linked. No, this one is the totally adorable comedian Jason Sudeikis, who's quickly becoming a household name thanks to his guest-starring turn on 30 Rock and his role as the most consistently funny guy on Saturday Night Live.
According to an insider, Jen and Jason really hit it off during filming of The Bounty Hunter but since Jason was married at the time, Jen took the anti-Angelina route by keeping their relationship purely platonic. However, when Jason's marriage ended after filming wrapped, America's favorite "friend" was (clap, clap, clap, clap) there for him.
When Jen found out he was going through a breakup late last year, she made the effort to invite Jason over for dinner in case he was feeling lonely or down. They talked for hours and really opened up to each other. After a while, Jen realized she missed him in between dates.
She finds him hilarious. He is just what Jen needs: a solid, low-key, funny man. It's early days, but she's quietly thrilled. [Source: Grazia, via Wonderwall]
Although Jason is one of our biggest TV crushes, we're happy for Jennifer—if this story's actually true. It's not looking good though, because Jen's rep told Wonderwall, "She is not dating Jason. [She] hasn't even seen him since 'The Bounty'." Of course, this wouldn't be the first time a real relationship was denied to the press, but it seems rather unlikely that Jennifer would have much time to date Jason when she's been in Hawaii for the past few weeks filming Just Go With It. However, Jennifer and Jason will be teaming up again very soon for the comedy, Horrible Bosses, so anything's possible!
