Butler Jokes About 'Marrying' Aniston
GERARD BUTLER has poked fun at reports he's dating JENNIFER ANISTON - joking they have put their 'romance' on the fast track and are rushing to the altar.
The actors are currently filming new movie The Bounty together and sparked rumours they were lovers when they were snapped strolling arm-in-arm on a Los Angeles beach.
Ongoing speculation about Butler's love life reached fever pitch on Thursday (16Jul09) when he lashed out at the media, branding the press coverage of their 'romance' ridiculous.
But the 300 star has since cooled down, and jokingly referred to Aniston as his soon-to-be bride during a guest appearance on U.S. TV's The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien.
He told viewers, "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. 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."
But the Scot was keen to make sure his remarks were only taken in jest, quickly adding: "It's not true, just so you know."
