New Romance? Jennifer Aniston Has a Dinner Date with Actor Justin Theroux

Rumors swirl after Jen and her Wanderlust costar are spotted acting "happy and flirty" while dining with friends in L.A.

Yes, we know -- just because Jennifer Aniston has dinner with somebody doesn't mean she's finally found love. But if she doesn't want us to talk, why does she keep grabbing meals with such hot guys?

Aniston's latest speculated love interest is actor Justin Theroux, who costars with her in the upcoming film Wanderlust, and who you'd probably recognize from dozens of films and TV shows, including Your Highness, Zoolander, Parks and Recreation and Six Feet Under. Theroux, 39, and Aniston, 42, were spotted having a "three-hour meal" on Wednesday night at Los Angeles' Sunset Tower Hotel, and seemed to be enjoying one another's company -- a lot.

"Jen was in a great mood and seemed happy to take Justin to her favorite restaurant," a witness tells People, adding that they "seemed happy and flirty" but "didn't act like a couple." Another People source claims that the two are "great friends" who have "spent a lot of time together lately."

Meanwhile, a source tells X17 Online, the site that originally reported news of the dinner, that the two actors "recently started dating." The insider says: "They've known each other for a while, but they're more than friends now. They're cautious -- they're both taking it slowly."

Of course, Jennifer's rep swears that she and Theroux are -- say it with us now! -- just friends.

"What the story neglects to mention is the three additional people also at the dinner," the rep tells Celebuzz. "It was a dinner with friends -- that's all."

Ansiton's rep echoes that sentiment to People, though the number of dinner guests seems to have increased. "It was a group dinner with six people," the rep states. "It was not a romantic dinner."

Even so, multiple sources are reporting that Aniston and Theroux arrived at the dinner together from Aniston's house -- and returned there after dinner at 10 p.m.

The good-looking celebs were also spotted together at the Chateau Marmont in March. We kind of hope this one was a real date, because Theroux seems appropriately smart, funny and hot. Word of advice, though, Justin? Lose the shaggy beard!
