The ‘Murder Mystery’ actress was photographed giving the stranger a hug and a kiss on the cheek after dinner, while George Clooney reportedly helped plan a secret date for Jen and Brad.
Jennifer Aniston‘s romantic life has piqued the interest of many people, especially because she has never confirmed to be in a relationship since she split from Justin Theroux in 2017. So when the 50-year-old actress was recently spotted getting close with a mystery man, this naturally sparks a dating speculation.
The “Dumplin’ ” star was seen chatting up with the unidentified man in West Hollywood on Thursday, July 11. The two enjoyed dinner with friends at a restaurant that night. In pictures obtained by Radar Online, Jen pulled the man for a sweet embrace and the man planted a kiss on her cheek when they later parted ways.
It’s not clear if Jen and the mystery man have a special relationship or they’re purely friends. The site reports that the “Friends” alum is in no rush to get into a relationship after calling it quits with Justin in late 2017 following two years of marriage.
“Jen’s a classy lady and won’t just hook up with guys for the sake of it, that’s not her style,” says a source. “She’s been on dates with guys from time to time, but not to the point where she slept with them. But she has needs like anyone else, so it’ll be a welcome relief once she gets that monkey off her back so to speak.”
And one of Jen’s recent dating partners might be her ex Brad Pitt. Life & Style claims that Brad’s friend George Clooney recently helped plan a secret date for the former spouses. The “Catch-22” actor and his wife Amal reportedly went on a double date with Jen and Brad in Rome. George allegedly also booked a private villa for his friends and said that it was for his parents to avoid making a buzz.
“George wants to see one of his best friends, Brad Pitt, happy again. And that means one thing: Jennifer Aniston,” says a source. “It was very romantic thanks in no small part to a staff whose number one priority was discretion,” the source goes on dishing. “Brad and Jen stayed at a very private villa in Rome. George organised it all, saying he was booking it for his parents so there would be no prying eyes.”
Rumors of Jen and Brad’s reunion have been swirling around for months as the two remain single following their split from their respective spouses. The “Moneyball” star separated from Angelina Jolie in 2016. However, the actor laughed off the rumored Jen reunion when asked about it in May, only responding with, “Oh, my God!” before letting out a chuckle.
