Jennifer Aniston is rumored to be nursing her broken heart in the arms of a Scottish hearthrob and former co-star. The star, who announced her split from husband Justin Theroux after two years of marriage last week, has been seen with her The Bounty Hunter co-star Gerard Butler. 

"They've been talking non-stop," said a source.

"She isn't going to rush headlong into a new romance with anyone right away, but she's really touched that Gerard is doing everything possible to console her.

"When she’s ready, there’s no doubt he’ll be at her side.”

Speculation has been rife that Jennifer's Split from Justin may have been down to the increasing closeness of her relationship with ex, and newly-single Brad Pitt, or down to the fact that she caught Justin getting too familiar with Naomi Watts.

But sources close to Aniston say that the fact Brad has children with his ex Angelina Jolie means that any chance of a rekindling of romance between the Friends star and Pitt is highly unlikely.

"There’s so much bad blood between them that Angelina would hit the roof and it could make Brad’s life extremely difficult during their divorce settlement if she suspected he’d so much as introduced the kids to Jen during a visit.

“Brad loves his children dearly and he’s not going to let anyone come between them if doing so would create custody problems and expose them to negative and invasive publicity.”

Earlier this month Butler, who has played the on-screen love interest of both Aniston and Jolie, was put on the spot during a game of Plead the Fifth on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen

Cohen asked Butler who was the better kisser of the two women, and Butler was put on the spot.

Answering the tricky question, Butler said: “Jennifer Aniston. I'm just going, you know, I'm just taking you by surprise.”
