After what looked like a flirty date between Cougar Town star, Josh Hopkins, and actress, Jennifer Aniston, Hopkins admits that the two are “just friends.”
“No, no, we’re just friends â€“ just friends having dinner. There’s a lot of friends I’d less rather go to dinner with” he said adding, “there are worse people to be in a rumor with” (PEOPLE).
However, it’s Hopkins’ closing statement that still raises an eyebrow. “It’s my 40th birthday today. I’m actually going to Courteney’s [house]. She’s having a little barbecue” (PEOPLE). It’s rather interesting that Hopkins would spend such a milestone birthday cooped up at Cox’s house. Sure, he could be a quiet guy who just enjoys the company of good friends – but is he that close to Cox that he’s spending his day with her and not his family or non-famous friends? Or was he fibbing and he’s going there to spend time with Aniston out of the spotlight? Food for thought.
