Gerard Butler on Jennifer Aniston: Embrace The Rumor!

Gerard Butler on Jennifer Aniston: Embrace The Rumor!

Jennifer Aniston laughs while chowing down a salad on the set of her new movie The Bounty in New York city on Friday (July 24).

The 40-year-old actress’s costar Gerard Butler talked to Parade about the rumors of his and Jen‘s reported romantic relationship: “That’s how I live my life. Conan [O' Brien] asked me about Aniston, who is my co-star in the movie I’m making now, and I just said, ‘Yeah, we’re getting married. What the hell.’ Tell a joke, that’s my technique. But, I’m careful to also say that I’m marrying Cameron Diaz and maybe Joan Rivers. I like to tell everyone I’m going to be a busy guy. I learned as a kid how to stay out of trouble: make it funny.”

He continued, “It’s a pretty unfair role. The second someone makes something up, you’re stuck with it. If you deny it, people think, ‘The lady doth protest too much.’ So I’ve discovered you have to embrace the rumor. Take it all the way just to kind of show how ridiculous the whole thing is. Mike, my character, would probably say, ‘Just tell them it’s true.’ So I learned something from him.”
