Gerard Butler is reportedly dating French TV presenter Laurie Cholewa.

The actor - who has been repeatedly romantically linked to his 'Bounty Hunter' co-star Jennifer Aniston - was spotted looking loved-up with the brunette beauty in Paris as he took her out for dinner and held her hand during a romantic walk along the Champs Elysees earlier this week.

Gerard has apparently been left smitten with Laurie since they met while he was promoting 'The Bounty Hunter' in the French capital two weeks ago.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Sparks flew immediately."

The 29-year-old presenter - who works for French television channel Direct 8 - was seen smiling lovingly at the 40-year-old hunk as they embraced on the street.

After Gerard and Jennifer visited France, they went to publicise the movie in Berlin and Madrid, before the dark-haired hunk seemingly returned to Paris to spend more time with Laurie.

Gerard and Jennifer have always been adamant they are just good friends, however, they sent tongues wagging again last week when he was photographed with his hand on the former 'Friends' actress' butt.
