Ooh La La! Gerard Butler's New French Lady

Move over, Jennifer Aniston, it looks like Gerard Butler has been grabbing someone else's tush.

According to UsMagazine.com, Butler has been quietly dating French TV journalist Laurie Cholewa, who he met when she interviewed him earlier this month. Sources say Butler visited his new lady friend in Paris last week, where they spent a romantic evening checking out art at the Louvre museum and having dinner.

"They had some light salads and a bit of wine," a waiter who served them at Cafe Marly blabbed. "There was a warmth and intimacy between them which suggested that they were getting on very well. They're a very cute couple!"

A source at Cholewa's TV station Direct 8 says that the pair "had a great time together and are keeping in touch via telephone and email. There's a real connection there...she thinks the relationship might be going somewhere, but we'll have to wait and see."

Another source close the French reporter called Chowela, 29, "absolutely fantastic and looks as though she wants to talk about him all the time."

"She's ambitious...she never stops working, so hasn't had a great deal of time for romance recently. She's extremely sexy though -- Gerard is a very lucky boy."

When asked about her budding romance with The Bounty Hunter star, Chowela smiled. "He's a great guy, but you'll have to ask him about this," she said. But she hinted that the long-distance factor may be a problem. "He's a bit far away!"
