(Newser) – When Jennifer Aniston said in a recent interview she still believed in love, she apparently had a specific reason: Scottish actor Gerard Butler. Aniston and her co-star in The Bounty met up for a romantic dinner this week, and they "appeared incredibly affectionate with one another," the New York Post reports. They were "kissing, hugging, and leaning in to talk to each other for over two hours"—but didn't leave together.

When not rendezvousing with Butler, Aniston has been sharpening her singing skills: Her upcoming movie The Gore Girls tells the story of a 1940s country music group made up of female prison inmates—and Aniston, who won't say she can do more than "carry a tune," is hard at work honing her voice.
