As reports of a possible romance between Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler continue to circulate, the hunky Scottish actor has revealed there is only friendship between the pair.
Although their tactile appearance together at last week's Bounty Hunter premiere in London did little to dispel the rumours, the actor insists he and Jen are "just friends".
"I went for her birthday to Mexico. We're just friends," says Gerard, whose appearance on Jennifer's break further fuelled reports.
"We have a natural chemistry - you can see it in our magazine shoot and the film. We have a great time together," he adds.
"But here's the thing - while they're accusing me of being with Jennifer, I've probably been off somewhere else doing some damage with someone else."
And it appears the actor prides himself on keeping secrets.
"My last two girlfriends - one was two years, the other 18 months - nobody ever found out I was dating them. I'm pretty good at keeping that silent," he tells Men's Health magazine.
