Jessica Biel may or may not be dating Gerard Butler


Since Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn seem to be on the outs, People needs a new couple to obsess over, so they've manufactured the scuttlebutt that Jessica Biel is getting over Justin Timberlake by dating Gerard Butler. How many boldfaced names can we get in one lead sentence, anyway?

The mag says Butler and Biel, who are starring in Playing the Field together, have been pretty close lately, even though reps for both say they are "just friends." So what if she went for a ride on his motorcycle or they ate sushi together in L.A.?

Mind you, Butler has a habit of being named as the boyfriend du jour of every female costar he has. Remember when he and Jennifer Aniston were supposedly a thing when they starred in The Bounty Hunter together? Then again, nobody ever wants to cop to dating Jennifer Aniston, especially these days -- it's career suicide. We're warning you, Justin Theroux.
