They are both actors.
They used to date.
They were not one of those flashy couples begging for the spotlight, but they were still definitely a celebrity couple.
He is in between girlfriends right now… and he is really annoyed by the constant media questions about his most recent ex (whom he dated after he and our actress broke up).
He wanted to know if our actress would be willing to be a temporary couple so that the media would stop pestering him about his most recent ex.
He called our actress, emailed her, and texted her repeatedly over the past few weeks. Very persistent.
She ignored him, but did answer him indirectly… by getting photographed with another man!
She (indirectly) let the paparazzi know exactly where they were going to be at a certain time, and then showed up with her new man, completely camera ready: nattily dressed, smiling, and displaying affectionate body language.
Yes, that was all set up.
There’s your answer, Actor!
