The new year may have barely just begun, but Jennifer Aniston has already found herself a new man. Hopefully, this one has more dating potential than her exes John Mayer and Gerard Butler. The boyfriend candidate this time is Adrien Brody. An Oscar winner, the 37-year-old actor may not be the first person we'd picture Jen with, but sources say the two have been friends for awhile.
Things first started to heat up with the pair after they ran into each other in Los Angeles at a Christmas party. According to the National Enquirer (via celebitchy.com) Jen couldn't keep her hands off of Adrien-literally.
“At one point, Adrien was leading Jen away in hand. She was rubbing her hands down his back and gazing into his eyes like she was totally smitten. Jen is definitely very taken by Adrien, who has been a close acquaintance of hers for a long time," a source said.
So is Adrien going to be the one to make Jennifer happy this year? Reportedly, Adrien is both "charming and intelligent" and what's more “Jen always feels at ease in his company." so far, so good. Unfortunately, the source goes on to note that, "And besides the fact he isn’t insecure about her success, she loves the dangerous, edgy side to him. He exudes this rugged sex appeal that Jen gravitates towards."
It seems "rugged sex appeal" or what others may call "cocky" is Jen's achilles heel. Ironically, Adrien is supposedly buddies with Jen's ex, Gerard Butler, another sexy, charming actor.
To top it off, Adrien, once in a long term relationship with actress Elsa Pataky, has recently been seen dating around himself. He's allegedly gotten close with the likes of Paris Hilton and Mad Men's January Jones. While we hope that this relationship lasts, we fear Jen may be joining former Friends castmate Courtney Cox as a single gal soon enough.
