While the Hollywood twosome insist they are nothing more than friends, the news that Jennifer Aniston has struck up a friendship with Gerard Butler's mother will do nothing to put an end to the swirling reports that they're dating.
Actress Jennifer, who met the Scottish hunk during filming of her latest flick 'The Bounty Hunter', has bonded with her costar's mum to such an extent that the pair "want to do everything together now", reveals Gerard.
"At the premiere, my mum just couldn't wait to meet Jen. They got on so well... My mom is a golfer and so is Jen and they're going to play together," he says.
"And she wants her to come to Scotland so she can show her the sights."
Indeed, when filming on the comedy movie was interrupted by a phonecall from Gerard's mother, the '300' star reveals that Jennifer, 41, was so eager to speak to her she insisted on chatting.
"In 'The Bounty Hunter', there's a scene where Jen and I are getting married. I happened to have my cellphone with me and at a crucial moment in the vows my mother actually called me.
"So I fished it out of the pocket of my tuxedo and I was like, 'Hello, Mom. Listen, I'm a bit busy. I'm marrying Jennifer Aniston right now'.
"But Jen took the phone and insisted on talking to her, which was very funny. It was a great way for my mom to meet and have a chat with Jen and they really bonded. And they were like, 'We have to hang out.'"
