Jennifer Aniston & Gerard Butler
NEW MOVIE, NEW ROMANCE?
Jennifer Aniston appears to be mixing business with pleasure again. On Aug. 22, after dinner with a large group from their new film The Bounty, Gerard Butler, 39, and Aniston, 40—who’s dated other costars Vince Vaughn, 39, and Bradley Cooper, 34—cozied up over cocktails at The Jane hotel in New York City. “They were hand-in-hand and sat very close,” a source says of the duo, who laughed and flirted well past midnight and even exchanged a kiss. (Aniston’s rep denies this.) But a serious courtship isn’t necessarily in the cards. In fact, in July Butler said rumors of such a romance are not true, and a source close to the actor tells Scoop of the relationship, “They’re affectionate, but it’s pretty casual.”
RENEE VISITS BRADLEY’S HOMETOWN!
Bradley Cooper, 34, and Renée Zellweger, 40, appear to be in the getting-to-know-you phase of their courtship. Cooper brought Zellweger to his native Philadelphia just days after returning from their PDA-filled trip to Spain. While in his hometown, they visited a Starbucks but “weren’t touchy-feely,” says an employee. Still, this doesn’t mean the couple are cooling off. “She’s reserved,” says a pal. “They’re cute together. I’ve never seen her happier.”
ARE CAMERON DIAZ & JASON LEWIS DATING?
A recent report claims that single stars Cameron Diaz, 37, and Sex and the City actor Jason Lewis, 38, “couldn’t stop touching each other” while dining at Shima in Venice, Calif. Not so, says a waiter at the restaurant, who tells Scoop that Diaz “has never been to [Shima].” And Diaz’s rep also confirms that the report is “not true.”
Shania Twain has been unwinding at her lakefront cottage in Canada with family and friends, as well as Frédéric Thiébaud, 39, the Swiss business executive who comforted the singer after the alleged affair between his wife and her husband ended both their marriages in May of last year. Twain, who turns 44 on Aug. 28, is “getting out there more,” says a source. “She’s enjoying her summer and having a great time.”
Kim & Reggie
One month after they amicably split, Kim Kardashian and football star Reggie Bush were spotted together looking cozy in New Orleans, where Bush, 24, is nearby at the Saints’ training camp. The duo had a romantic dinner Aug. 17, and five days later Kardashian, 28, joined a group of Saints’ wives and girlfriends at Morton’s the Steakhouse to watch the second preseason game and cheer for their men. So what gives? “They’re taking their time to see what happens,” says a source. “They love each other a lot and want it to work. They’re seeing if they can get things back on track.”
Should They Get Back Together?

SUMMER OF LOVE
Thanks to old flames (and new), the end of the season is good and hot!
MILEY CYRUS & LIAM HEMSWORTH
As Cyrus, 16, bid the Australian teen actor goodbye at Nashville’s airport Aug. 19, “she was beaming!” says an eyewitness, actor Alex Emanuel. Despite Cyrus’s recent Tweet that she does “not have a boyfriend,” the pair, who just wrapped The Last Song in Georgia, were “full-on making out,” says Emanuel. “It was a beautiful moment.”
HAYDEN PANETTIERE & HARRY MORTON
The sight of the Heroes star and Lindsay Lohan‘s ex got at least one tongue wagging: that of Morton’s rottweiler. “Hayden was great with the dog,” says an observer, who adds that the actress and the restaurateur “looked like they had fun together.”
BALTHAZAR & ROSETTA GETTY
WORKING IT OUT
Just months after ending his affair with Sienna Miller, “Balthazar has moved back in” with his wife, says a source. But all is not forgiven. “He’s living in the guest house,” the source tells Scoop. “They’re doing it for their kids.”
SOPHIA BUSH & AUSTIN NICHOLS
The One Tree Hill exes recently visited N.Y.’s chic Hamptons, where they cuddled over dinner at Georgica. “It’s obvious they’re crazy about each other,” said an observer.
Fashionistas and Hollywood’s hippest gathered at In STYLE’s 8th Annual Summer Soiree Aug. 20 on the rooftop of the London West Hollywood for cocktails and cupcakes. Dexter costars (and real-life couple) Michael C. Hall and wife Jennifer Carpenter mingled with famous faces from TV, including House’s Jennifer Morrison, True Blood’s Rutina Wesley, tween queen Miranda Cosgrove—and a handful of big screen stars, like Transformers’ Tyrese Gibson.
