Just a few months ago, Gerard Butler was rumored to be the new man in Jennifer Aniston’s life. Of course, since then we’ve heard rumors that she’s devastated over breaking up with John Mayer (a split that she decided on, btw), and that she’s fighting over Bradley Cooper with Renee Zellwegger over Bradley Cooper. But before the “cat fight” started, Jen was also linked to Gerard Butler, her co-star in the movie The Bounty Hunter. Well, if there ever was a scrap between her and her equally-gorgeous fellow actress, Renee, then it might be over as the spotlight of Jen’s love life has turned back to Gerard.
Gerard Butler has recently given an interview with People though and it seems that he wants to “clear the air” about his relationship with Jen. In the interview, the man is perturbed that people have such an interest in his love life. He claims that he’s just a hard-working guy who wants to get his job done and be done with it. In the interview, Gerard once again denies that there’s anything going on between him and Jen and you can almost hear him give a disgruntled sigh as he talks about it. From People,
“The Bounty Hunter costars Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler are making headlines with speculation over their off-screen romance – but a usually humorous Butler sets the record straight on one thing he doesn’t find funny.
“That is just annoying. People say I’m always dating so and so, and sometimes it’s three people in one day,” says the actor, 39.
“I’m trying to make movies, work hard and do my best. Then this kind of thing happens and people start to associate me more with that. It gets ridiculous.”
“She is one classy lady,” he says of Aniston. “Everyday I go to work with her I’m always surprised about how cool, easy and down to earth and real she is.”
He adds, “I’m in New York right now filming and I’m in heaven. I can’t always say that about movies, but to be filming this romantic comedy with Jennifer and a story that made my side split when I read it – I’m lucky. I’m happy as a pig in s—, as they say.”
Well, unfortunately for Gerard, he’s made quite a big name for himself now and having people poke their noses into your love life just comes hand in hand with it. I’m annoyed that he’s annoyed by it as I am when anybody works so hard to become a household name and then is mad when people show interest in their lives and what they’re doing. But that’s not what annoys me the most about the whole thing.
What annoys me the most is that Gerard seems to have absolutely no basis to be annoyed. I really think that him and Aniston have hooked up and are just trying to keep things quiet. I can’t blame them. Jen has been flooded with love-life speculation and scrutinization ever since her divorce from The Pig and wanting to keep something under wraps for as long as possible. BUT. As far as Gerard’s concerned, it annoys me even more that this relationship actually seems to be happening and he gets annoyed at us! Oh, the nerve!
I was actually almost convinced that there was nothing going on between these two and then these pictures from the set of The Bounty Hunter surfaced. Gerard and Jen look very couple-ey as Gerard strolls around with his arm around Jen and he’s holding her pretty close. Jen, meanwhile, gazes up adoringly into his eyes as he speaks. And even though they are on set, they are not filming. Meaning that this wasn’t simply a show for the cameras. So now, I am fairly convinced that Jen and Gerard are dating. I’m also fairly convinced that Gerard is going to become one of those huge stars that annoyingly complains about his lack of privacy. I mean, come on, Gerard, if you don’t want to talk about it, don’t talk about it. But don’t act like you’re outraged we would even suggest it! That’s just rude.
