Wilde and Reynolds?

Olivia Wilde is off the market. When asked by Britain’s OK magazine if she’s dating anyone, the actress gives a simple response: “Yeah.” While she’s not revealing the identity of her new suitor, she hints that he certainly knows how to impress her. “I like it if the guy possesses creativity and doesn’t take me to a boring restaurant or a boring whatever but comes up with an interesting location. I like to be surprised, for sure,” she says. Coincidentally, Wilde has been spotted spending time with Ryan Reynolds — and the pair looked anything but bored.

Pitt needs to stop talking for a bit

At this point, Brad Pitt is probably sorry he opened his mouth at all. The “Moneyball” star is still on damage control for comments he made about his marriage to ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. “I don’t know what was pieced together or put together. All I know is that my point was, the best thing I’d done as a father is be sure that my kids have a good mother. That’s all I was, or am, trying to say. It has no reference to the past,” Pitt says in an interview with Matt Lauer for the “Today” show, referencing partner Angelina Jolie. “I think it’s a shame that I can’t say something nice about Angie without Jen being drug in. You know, she doesn’t deserve it.”

ScarJo’s stroll with Kieran

Putting her nude photo scandal behind her, Scarlett Johansson is reportedly focusing on her love life. The actress was spotted taking a cozy midnight stroll in Paris with Kieran Culkin before flying back to the U.S. together the next day, according to Us Weekly. But then she’s also reportedly been getting friendly with Justin Timberlake, as the pair were spotted “hardcore flirting” at a recent party in New York. “Other guys were trying to talk with Scarlett, but she was only focused on Justin,” a source says, adding that the they partied until 5:30 a.m. before heading back to her midtown penthouse.
