However, they weren't trying very hard to deny it this weekend when Biel was spotted riding on the back of Butler's motorcycle as they cruised down PCH in Malibu this weekend.
The two met while filming last month in Shreveport, La. Sources claim they are “just friends” but they went out and shared several dinners together during the “Playing The Field” shoot. At a cast and crew dinner the two were sitting next to each other the entire evening, flirting and Butler was even eating off Biel's plate.
Another insider says that Gerard (who likes to go by the name “Gerry”) is just an outgoing friendly guy, “Gerry has a large personality, and everyone, including Jessica, gets caught up in his world.” That may be true, but this would be a perfect time for them to be dating.
Biel recently called it quits earlier this year with long-term boyfriend, Justin Timberlake, and Butler hasn't been seriously linked to anyone recently.
Biel is on the rebound, Gerard Butler is hot, it's like a no-brainer for them to get together.
