Fed up with reports that he has been dating co-star actress Jennifer Aniston, Scottish actor Gerard Butler has jokingly said that they are tying the knot soon.
Butler, 39, and Aniston, 40, are currently filming new movie
together, and when they were spotted strolling arm-in-arm on a Los Angeles beach, rumours started that they were lovers. But when the speculations got a little out of hand, Butler lashed out at the media on July 16, branding the press coverage of their ‘romance’ ridiculous.
He has since cooled down enough to joke that Aniston is his soon-to-be bride during a guest appearance on U.S. TV’s
The Tonight Show
with Conan O’Brien. “We’re very much in love. Especially her. I have an announcement: We’re actually going to tie the knot next Tuesday, or Wednesday, or Thursday... one of those days,” the
quoted him as saying.
“Then Saturday I may marry Cameron Diaz. Joan Rivers will be the next weekend. Then I fill out applications for the next one because, you know, all (who) come (are) welcome,” he said. But the actor was keen to make sure that his remarks were only taken in jest. “It’s not true, just so you know,” he added.
