Jennifer Aniston Rejected by Cougar Town''s Josh Hopkins
Jennifer Aniston wanted to take it to the next level -- but actor Josh Hopkins didn't!
A source tells the new Us Weekly (out now) that Aniston, 41, and the Cougar Town star, 40, began casually dating in May after meeting through Courteney Cox, her BFF and his costar on the ABC comedy. Before long, Aniston "wanted a relationship. And he was like, 'No, thank you,'" the source says.
Hopkins is "a player and is into meeting younger girls," the insider adds. "He definitely lies to girls."
The actor (who romances Cox on the series) even has a raunchy nickname for Aniston, with whom he was spotted sharing a flirty meal at West Hollywood's Madeo Sept. 2. "Josh calls Jennifer his 'sport f--k,'" a Hopkins pal tells Us, adding that the duo were simply "friends with benefits."
Hopkins has been careful to publicly deny a romance with Brad Pitt's ex-wife. Asked about his dinner at Madeo with Aniston, he told Us, "We were just friends having dinner." (That talked-about meal turned out to be their "final date," the source adds.)
Aniston, who famously dated John Mayer, isn't crying.
She "likes her life the way it is," a source tells Us. Her type? "Really good-looking a--holes."
He's gross. She has bad taste in men for the most part.
I'll never understand women like Aniston as long as I live. If she valued things like decency and character, she could surely be in a respectful, honest relationship or marriage by now. What grown woman over 40 is still turned on by the "bad boy" thing? It's so high school.
"What grown woman over 40 is still turned on by the "bad boy" thing? It's so high school."%0D %0D Actally, a rich older woman like her is in a very good position to enjoy the hot fucks you can get from the bad boys. Getting enmeshed with them is a horrible idea, but she has her money and independence, and won't be dumb enough to try to change or trap one with a pregnancy. %0D %0D
You people taking this made-up publicity seriously and debating its intricacies and implications SLAY me.
Exactly R5; in fact I thought Josh Hopkins was identifie as gay quite a long time ago. Somebody here even mentioned his long-time boyfriend's name.

Exactly, yes he's going to dump and humiliate his bosse's best friend publicly.
R5, my thoughts exactly. I 've never even heard of Josh Hopkins, so I have no doubt his people were trying to create something.
You really have to be mentally ill to be in such a business.
i feel sorry for aniston, but she's either looking for men who are wrong for her, or she's trying to dodge a marriage. i wonder if she's infertile, or if she won't get pregnant to preserve her figure. she was a bit plump before she hooked up with brad pitt, and i think she may be obsessed with her weight now.
Looking for love in all the wrong places.
This means he's gay, right?
Anything to get America's Sweetheart on the cover of the tabloids.
jennifer aniston=long running pity party

Welcome to the rest of your life, Jen. You're old and men are only going to want to date you for (a) sport or (b) your money.
Jennifer Aniston will die alone.
Her luck (or choice) with/of men sucks. No wonder she's such a pothead.
She just comes across as completely Hollywood. What else does she do besides smoke pot and come up with movie roles for herself?%0D %0D If she wants a serious relationship with someone, then she needs to become a more grounded person.
This strikes me as a planted news item to make Josh seem like his character on the show cause the sistah PINGS to high heaven!!
I feel so sorry for her. The time period between dusk and dawn leaves a relatively short period for her to stalk all the guys who dump her.
Aniston is only "beloved" in the UK, where they absolutely worship the ground on which she walks. Aniston is on her last leg in Hollywood. She can't open a film, and she does the same character in everything she's in.
I was surprised when The New York Times' television critic took the opportunity to pan Jennifer's guest stints on "30 Rock" and "Cougar Town." She was noted for being particularly unfunny in both appearances!
they shoot horses don't they?
This news will do wonders for my career! But it doesn;t even matter, because "Cougar Town" will run forever!
Just as Paris Hilton is Our National Skank, Jennifer Aniston has carefully cultivated her role as Our National Reject.
Josh Hopkins seems like kind of guy who prefers cum facials.
Cougar Town "star"????? After one season, he's a star? "Dancing with the Stars" has really ruined that word.
Wasn't this Lainey's blind item from yesterday?
Gawker already outed Jennifer Aniston as a lesbian a month after brad and Jen announced their separation....
they're both queers, i suppose.
r29 it's all falling into place for me now. i seeeeeee the light! boy brad pulls some merkin duty. hmmm, or are his brides beards?
Aniston made $80 million from FRIENDS alone. If that's a last leg, I'd cut both of mine off for it.
So if a woman isn't married and had children she is a reject? %0D %0D Maybe she is unmarried by choice. She is rich and famous and if she wanted to be in a marriage/relationship, she would have no problem finding someone.%0D %0D The problem might not be with her, but with our country's traditional views of what being a woman means = having a husband and having children.
Thank you, r33. It's threads like these that make me believe the Datalounge has been taken over by Christian fraus.
I see nothing wrong with a woman who doesn't want marriage or children. And whether this story is real or not, I honestly do feel sorry for her because of the double standard. Men are allowed to get older, women are not.
I have a "six degrees of separation" thing with Josh Hopkins. His dad is a former Kentucky congressman and the family is well known in Lexington. I worked for a public policy archive the past couple of years and there's been an ongoing series of interviews conducted with the elder Hopkins. I think if Josh were gay it would be well-known in Lexington as everyone knows everyone else's business--I haven't heard a whisper about Josh being queer. Sorry, girls!
The reason no man puts up with her for long is that she's a shallow, mean-spirited, self-obsessed bitch. And she's not a good enough actress to pretend otherwise. Ask anyone who's ever worked on one of her productions.
Well Star magazine seems to think she's a lesbian too and that she asked her longtime gf to move in with her.
La Aniston can't give good head, like La Berry, which is why men leave them
Interesting comment on Jen and John Mayer:
Stop buying into the Jennifer Aniston PR machine.
They never WERE a real couple.
Jennifer Aniston is a lesbian. That's right. An actual L-E-S-B-I-A-N. A "power" lesbian, with access to money and enough people spinning stories about her to populate the entire island of Lesbos 2x over.
Why the game, then?
To keep an average actress relevant and rich, using the old moldy theory that America can't handle gay celebrities, that it's "bad for business".
Sorry to puncture your quaint, dime-store romance novel dreams, Adrienne (and others).
P.S. There are others. Ssssshhhh! It's a big secret!"
I doubt it means he's not gay, R35. Christ - he has gay-face from space.
With all due respect, R40, gayface notwithstanding, I can't see Hopkins being in the closet and everyone in Lex not knowing about it. And the Lexington queens are up on everyone's personal life, trust me. No one is gossiping about Josh being gay, because if he were, I'm positive every Kentucky queen would be trying to get next to him.
Then you should have also come across dozens of stories about his hetero conquests, R41. If he's such a pussyhound, that is, especially if he's after young pussy.
Why would I "come across dozens of stories about his hetero conquests" when I'm a gay man, R41? It's not like I have a lot of straight contacts in Lexington who would be in the know.
Nice backtrack, R43. It's because you said 'everyone knows everyone's business'. You didn't specify 'gay'. And he's lived a lot of his life outside of Bumfucke Kentucky, so how would anyone know what he's been up to all the way out in Hollywood?
"Backtrack"--what the fuck are you talking about? His immediate family still lives in Lexington, and for your information he comes back to Kentucky quite a bit. In fact, Hopkins comes back to Lexington on a fairly frequent basis. I'm fairly certain that any dirt about Hopkins fucking around with men would have made it back here to lil' old Bumfucke Kentucky. I don't know why you're trying to pick a fight--particularly over a guy YOU probably wouldn't have a chance in hell of sleeping with even if he were gay.
Peace out, jerk. I won't be back to see your response.
Oooh, R45. Peace out to you too, asshole.
Shit. If I were her, I'd kick back and have fun. Lots of sexy times but no marriage. She doing the right thing. Why should every woman want to be married? A lot of women don't. They're just being harassed into it by society, friends and family.
[quote]Well Star magazine seems to think she's a lesbian too and that she asked her longtime gf to move in with her.
Honey, she got to sit on Brad Pitt's cock. So if she is, I want to be a Lesbian too.
Welcome to the club Josh.
I've never watched this show, but I think this clip pretty much sums it up:
It's cute of Josh to squire Octavia Spencer around town (they're "BFFs" and he was at the GGs and SAG awards with her); however, I'm convinced now more than ever that he's...
ONE OF US. ONE OF US.
I don't care what anybody says about him wanting to date young girls. That man is clearly gay or at the very least, bi. He is hiding his loathing of women and desire for men the best way he can. By victimizing women. So sad.
