MORE THAN FRIENDS
It’s not just a TV reunion on the cards for Jen and Matt...
Is this The One Where Jennifer Aniston and Matt Leblanc Hook Up In Real Life? Jen’s been publicly pining for her Friends days. “The girls say we would always love to do it again,” she revealed earlier this month of the rumoured Friends reunion. But sources tell NW Jen may just be looking for an excuse to spend some more time with former co-star Matt! TV insiders say that Jen and Matt “got along really well while filming Friends and have stayed close ever since”.
“There have even been some whispers around Hollywood that they may have hooked up back in the day,” continues the source. “Jen and Matt have remained tight-lipped about the rumours, but they can’t deny that they’ve always had a great connection.”
In fact, pals believe the rom-com queen and the Manwithaplan star would be a perfect match. OMG!
“There was a lot of chemistry between Jen and Matt when they worked together, and that didn’t go away overnight,” dishes the insider. “They’re still good friends and they’re always comfortable around each other. People that know them both would be thrilled if they got together!”
While Matt, 51, has been dating Aurora Mulligan, Jen, 49, is single since announcing her split from Justin Theroux in February. But the star’s ready to dip her toe back in the dating pool – and her friends would love to see her with a guy like Matt.
“Jen hasn’t given up on true love and [is] ready to find the right person,” says the source. “Matt is easy to talk to and super-fun to be around, and Jen needs someone like that in her life again. There’s no doubt fans would go wild if Joey and Rachel dated for real.” Time to get out of the Friends zone, guys!
