There are a number of perks to being a top Hollywood actress – a big benefit being the chance to meet handsome leading men.
And Jennifer Aniston is reportedly reaping the rewards of her recent guest slot on Cougar Town with the news that she shared a dinner date with actor Josh Hopkins.
According to US media, the 40-year-old beauty enjoyed a two-hour Italian meal with Josh, 39, who stars in the sitcom as Grayson Ellis.
Eyewitnesses have said the couple enjoyed an animated conversation, one observer adding: "She (Jennifer) seemed very excited about her date."
"She and Josh sat at a private table and they seemed to get along great. It was obvious that they didn’t know each other well, but there was a flirty energy between them and Jen looked very happy."
Josh stars in Cougar Town with Jennifer's best friend Courteney Cox-Arquette, who plays single mum, Jules Cobb.
The Switch actress is due to appear on the Season 2 premiere of the show, which airs in the US this month.
Executive producer Bill Lawrence has said that Jen plays "Courteney's shrink named Bonnie. Kind of a get-too-involved-in-her-life type of therapist."
"Those guys are so close in real life they kind of do that for each other anyway," he said.
