Gerard Butler & Jennifer Aniston: Just Friends!

Gerard Butler & Jennifer Aniston: Just Friends!

Gerard Butler is debunking rumors and telling the world that his Bounty costar Jennifer Aniston is just a friend and nothing more. Gerry, 39, tells People:

On the rumors that he’s romancing Aniston: “That is just annoying. People say I’m always dating so and so, and sometimes it’s three people in one day. “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.”

On Aniston’s character: “She is one classy lady. Everyday I go to work with her I’m always surprised about how cool, easy and down to earth and real she is.”

On working with Aniston: “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.”

This morning, Jen was nominated for an Emmy Award in the category of Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on NBC’s 30 Rock. Congrats, Jen!

    Congrats Jen

    You forgot a part of the people article

    As far as Aniston’s current love life goes – a source close to the actress, 40, says she’s still happily talking to Bradley Cooper. But when it comes to working with Butler, “They get along really well, but Jen only likes him as a friend,” says a source. “She can’t see herself dating him.”

    Cancer Update from Johns-Hopkins

    Bottled water in your car is very dangerous! On the Ellen show, Sheryl Crow said this is what caused her breast cancer. It has been identified as the most common cause of the high levels of dioxin in breast cancer tissue. Sheryl Crow’s oncologist told her: women should not drink bottled water that has been left in a car. The heat reacts with the chemicals in the plastic of the bottle which releases dioxin into the water.

    Dioxin is a toxin increasingly found in breast cancer tissue. So please be careful and do not drink bottled water that has been left in a car. Pass this on to all the women in your life… This information is the kind we need to know that just might save us! Use a stainless steel canteen or a glass bottle instead of plastic! LET EVERYONE WHO HAS A WIFE / GIRLFRIEND / DAUGHTER KNOW PLEASE! This information is also being circulated at Walter
    Reed Army Medical Center . No plastic containers in microwave. No water bottles in freezer No plastic wrap in microwave. A dioxin chemical causes cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don’t freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently, Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers… This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat,=2 0and plastic releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body…. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food… You get the same results, only without the dioxin . So such things as
    TV dinners, instant ramen and soups,

    etc.., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn’t bad but you don’t know what is in the paper. It’s just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons… Also, he pointed out that plastic
    wrap, such as Saran wrap, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead. This is an article that should be sent To anyone important in Your life!

  • Sally

    Very well said, Gerry. Each word of yours.

    ***

    The people and tabs are so hungry for news about personal lives of the famous stars that they create their own “trues” just to sell magazines and to have someting to talk about in their empty shallow lives.

    ***

    And it’s really great to know he is so happy filming this movie. We are so looking forward to watch it on big screens too. :)

    ***

    About Jen’s new nomination to Emmy, I think it’s really fair – and also great news. It was a great participation and people talk about this since it was on air on the screens. She is really talented actress and deserve this another nomination, for sure. I already said in the last thread, but never is enough, so: congrats, Jen!!! And keep with the good work, dear. Rumors and silly things will keep going on too, we know. They never get tired. But at this point, who cares, right?
    You’are awesome! Cheers!!!

    lol, i would be super pissed 2
    the media makes a big deal about any man seen with aniston
    just 1 pic of them together and they’re dating….
    some ppl just need 2 stop believing any story on her
    especially the crazy angie fans

  • there’sone thing i can say …

    well done JJ … thanks for not being biased even though you’re an angie fan. good on u.

  • Raquel

    @milen Tnks!

  • jaye

    lol@ Bet, Good Lord, you’re sad.

  • thank

    god that JA isn’t dating dumb boy. he’s way to immature for her.

  • christine

    THANKS MILEN #10.
    WHO CARES IF JEN DOESN’T GET MARRIED OR HAVE KIDS.
    REALLY, IF SHE WANTED IT, SHE COULD.
    I THINK SHE’S HAPPY BEING WHERE SHE’S AT.
    BUT MY FATHER ALWAYS ADVISED ME NOT TO WAIT LONG TO GET MARRIED AND HAVE KIDS. AND HE’S PROBABLY RIGHT. I MEAN I SEE THESE RICH WOMEN WITHOUT KIDS OR A HUSBAND AND I ALWAYS SEE SOMETHING ABOUT THEM THAT’S JUST OFF.
    JEN’S FRIEND ONCE SAID IN AN INTERVIEW THAT BRAD IS MISSING A SENSITIVITY CHIP. MAYBE IT’S JEN AND ALL THESE OLDER RICH WOMEN WITH NO HUSBANDS OR CHILDREN THAT ARE MISSING A SENSITIVITY CHIP.
    I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW WOMEN WHO HAVE EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD… DON’T HAVE THE THE TWO THINGS SOME OF THEM WANT THE MOST… A STABLE RELATIONSHIP AND KIDS.
    MAYBE THEY’RE IMMATURE IN SOME WAY WHEN THEY DON’T SEEM TO BE. NO WONDER JEN RELIES ON HER FRIENDS SO MUCH. IT MUST BE LONELY AT NIGHT.
    MAYBE SHE SHOULD ADOPT OR HAVE ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION. SOMETHING TO BRING PERSONAL FULFILLMENT AND LOVE IN LIFE.
    AS YOU GET OLDER, YOUR LOOKS FADE. MONEY CAN ONLY TAKE YOU SO FAR. BEING RICH AND LIVING IN LUXURY DOES NOT BRING HAPPINESS. SOMETIMES ONE CAN BE EVEN MORE DEPRESSED LIVING IN LUXURY BY THEMSELVES.
    MAYBE JEN IS INCAPABLE OF BALANCING A CAREER AND HAVING CHILDREN.

  • Teresa

    To me, she’s not that great of an actress.

    Maybe you should research the matter of whether plastics lead to cancer rather than printing rumors and urban legends. Sheryl Crowe never said that’s what caused HER cancer. In front of a Congressional Committee she said:
    -
    “I want to know what causes this disease – for me, and for the 2.3 million others who share this diagnosis,” said Crow as she spoke on behalf of the National Breast Cancer Coalition. “We need more resources to figure out what the environment has to do with [it].”

    keeps calling angie fans crazy but you yourself couldn’t stop evesdropping and posting there – you are crazy too.

    bahaha

  • mslewis

    Actually, Gerard never denied he and Jen were together. The “annoying” comment was about the rag mag stories, not about Jennifer. Also, don’t believe for a minute she is “still talking” to Bradley Cooper. If they were then where is he?

    Also, if I were Jennifer, trying to be a movie star, an Emmy nomination would be an embarrassment!!! That’s for television NOT movies!! So, the people in Hollywood who matter are still thinking of her as a TV actress, not a movie actress, even after all those movies she’s made!!!

  • LOS

    #22 They didnt just RANDOMLY nominate her. Keep reading.

  • -

    Why is it that everytime someone is linked to her, they all deny it like she’s got some sort of disease that they don’t want to be linked to her?

    Maybe she should just stick with tv. That’s how far career could get.

  • Sally

    @there’sone thing i can say …:
    I so agree with you (# 13).

  • anne marie

    @mslewis:

    It’s the talented actors that can cross over between film and TV. Look at Shirley MacLaine who just received an Emmy nomination also. Look at Felicity Huffman who received an Oscar nom and is also on TV. People in the business do not look down on TV actors because so many of them cross over to film. So your remark is really not very smart.

  • ha

    she’s starting to look like the middle age soccer moms I see at my games. heavier, orange-er, drunker … the onl difference is she’s not married to the couch and she doesn’t have the 15 year old kid most do at her age.

  • karen

    OMG people let this go …The man has said loud and clear they are NOT TOGETHER… all this stuff about how cute they would look as a couple sounds like teen agers. Come on the woman is 40 years old not 18. How many other 40 year old women have there love life open like this for display. Stop acting like Jennifer Aniston is a cute kid. Damn no wonder men are running like water down a hill. Who wants to deal with this kind of crap.. Well obviously Gerard and Bradley both are saying NO.. Jennifer may be happy being single.. good for her.. but please stop acting like she is a princess in fairy tale waiting for the prince to rescue her..

    This is why so many people find her a loser and pathetic. Everything about her work is second to her love life.. But say what you want.. this is the Karma her fans say is coming Angie/Brads way.

    Play the victim and you live a victim life.. This is the bed she and her fans have made for her.. NOW how does she get out of it.. YEAH UNCOOL HUH JEN..

  • bwah

    @anne marie: lol Aniston used Brad Pitt cheating on her to get those roles. Why else would she continue the pity party for so long? any normal talented actress would move on and never mention the ex because she would know that her talent and her talent ALONE would carry her. Not aniston’s case.

  • anne marie

    I’m really glad JJ posted these quotes from Gerard. It just shows that anytime Jen is with a guy, they’re automatically dating. And Jennifer and Bradley Cooper were not daing, they are just FRIENDS. It’s gotten to the point where FRIENDS can’t even be seen having dinner together without the tabs automatically saying they’re dating. Also this nomination Jennifer just received is her 6th Emmy nom! If she wins this one she will have a great pair of bookends!

  • Topdog

    they would make a cute couple. Gerard Butler seems like a whole better guy for Jennifer Aniston than John Meyer.

  • maymarie

    @milen:

    There is cancer in everything these days
    we can’t stop living
    I can see the water but the food

    we may as well roll over now
    Its in the soil the tap water the food the meat
    Birth control and god only knows what else

  • anne marie

    @bwah: Jen can mention her ex at any time because she was with him for 7 years. She has the right. But she only does it with humor. And if she got all those early roles because of Brad, how is she still getting roles in the last 3 years even though they haven’t been married for 4 years now. Next thing you’re going to say is that Brad got Jennifer her latest Emmy nomination for her guest spot on 30 Rock. LOL!!!

  • good for GB

    I thought GB’s statement is very well thought out, polite and yet firmly denying rumors. He also gave her a lot of compliments which are very smart for GB. Good move on GB’s part.
    For once GB talks like a mature grown-up. Don’t get me wrong. I am a huge fan of his. It’s just sometimes he talks without giving enough thought about what he is talking about.
    With proper training anyone can talk like a good diplomat.

  • Sally

    @christine:
    With all my sincerely respect, your father can be a great father and I’m sure he has the best intention when he said it, but his opinion seems a little old fashioned to me. I mean, marriage can be a great thing for sure, but can be very, very hard too. So the most important thing doesn’t seem to get married as soon as possible and have your kids, but first of all, to have someone in your life that makes you believe that this is a good choice. A person that you really love and want to share your happy and sad moments. A person you believe will be a good hysband and a good father, if you want children. If you would be a so hurry up person to get married, believe me, the chance you make a mistake and think you’ve found the rigth person is huge. When you are looking for it as an essencial thing to be happy, you can think you’ve found because you want it so hard. Do you understand my point? I don’t know how old are you. I’m 29 and I already did this mistake before, when I was younger. I mean, looking for love so hard that I thought I found it in the wrong ways. So I’m saying by my own experience and giving you my opinion. This is why I believe that Jen isn’t desperate at all by finding love. It will happen in the right moment, if you don’t close close your heart. I don’t think she closed hers. And I don’t want to be rude with you from anyway, so sorry if it have looked like it sometime in my comment. I just want to give you my opinion. And I really hope you don’t get me wrong, ok? I hope you can think about it. ;)

  • Sally

    @-:
    Maybe they just denial because it’s not true, dear. The “disease” part is fruit of your fertile imagination and nasty words, not his. Actually, Gerry was very gentle about Jen as a person and about work with her too.

    ***

    About the tv thing… she have already proved she can be great on big screens too. She just rocks the theathers a few months ago with a big hit, and it’s not the first time she is complimented by her work as a movie star. Then I’m sorry but I think you’re mistaken. Of course you can still have your opinion, but it’s just a opinion, not the facts at all. So…

  • Sally

    @Teresa:
    To you maybe not, Teresa. But I think the audience, the critics, the Emmy, the Golden Globe and other awards seem to disagree with you. And so I’m. Sorry.

  • Sally

    @lol:

    You pic a word and put out the context just to be nasty (#19). Do you think we didn’t read the complete People’s article? Silly of you. Do you think it’s a good thing to distorce things like this even when we all know what is the true? Maybe you should to work in some trash tab. You seem to have talent for it.

  • Sally

    @mslewis:

    You can be boh, do you know? I real good and talented actress can be good on tb and ob big screens too.

  • Sally

    @anne marie:

    Very well said (#26). I always like your comments. It all seems very reasonable and sensible to me.

  • Sally

    @anne marie:

    Another really good point (#33).

  • bwah

    @anne marie: yes, she can mention him but it only fuels the flames and makes her look pathetic. The man left and went on to build a home with another woman really fast. Any woman who can get on with her talent alone would keep it real. Why would she want to look like she’s pining over a cheater who has a million kids now? really. i never believed the tabloid stories about her pining over him because I believe Brad Pitt’s Pr people want her to look pathetic to make him look more desirable. To me he’s a douche bag.

  • Sally

    Sorry you all about my comment # 39. I wanted to say:

    You can be both, do you know? A real good and talented actress can be good on tv and on big screens too.

    Now this is correct. Sorry by my spelling mistakes. I had a problem here. :)

  • bwah

    To answer the rest of you comment… she’s till playing the pity card. I would love to see her show the tabloids by finding a man who is not in showbiz or really hooking up with Bradley Cooper. I think they would make a good couple and it would be good for both careers. Anything to make her look less pathetic and like she’s STILL using her divorce for attention is good by me. I think Pitt needs her pity party more than she does because it made him look like some stud that could cheat on a woman , move on, have a million kids, and still have the ex in the palm of his hands. It was really good for his career , too. TBH. before their divorce he was doing cheesy movie like oceans 13 and troy… his career has obviously only gotten better off the backs of his ex and baby momma.

  • fresh

    i wish her all the best. she’ll find happyness eventually—when its right.

  • me

    Happily talking to a guy? Wow, that sounds serious. So, two attractive and very single men vehemently deny they are dating Aniston. That is probably embarassing for her.

  • IT’S JENS CAMP DOING IT

    HAHAHAHA, THEY WANT HER IN THE NEWS SO SO BAD, THEY ALWAYS LEAK THESE ROMANCE, HER MONEY PAY FOR HER PR TEAM TO GET THINGS DONE FOR HER, OF COURSE HE DOES NOT WANT HER, ON WHAT PLANET ARE HER FEW FANS LIVING ON? HUM, BET BABY, THE MEN CALL HER NICE THINGS BECAUSE THE MEN ARE CLASSY, NOT JEN THE CHIN, DO YOU WANT THEM TO TELL THE TRUTH?, AND SAY H E L L NO, I DON’T WANT PLASTIC SURGERY FACE WHO’S BEEN WITH EVERY MAN IN HOLLYWOOD. PEOPLE WOULD HATE HIM.

  • me

    @christine:

    You are right, but not everyone wants kids. The women I know who never had kids were very self-centered, which is fine if one is childless. If she doesn’t want kids, thank goodness she realizes this and hasn’t had them.

  • mary

    mslewis, an award for your work should never be an embarrassment. Jen was great on 30 Rock! Sheis beautiful inside and out! Go JEN!
