Amanda Brunker has revealed she turned down the advances of one of Hollywood's hottest bachelors and the rumoured squeeze of Jennifer Aniston.
The mum-of-two struck up a friendship with hunky Scottish actor Gerard Butler when he moved to Dublin to take up a starring role in Reign Of Fire eight years ago.
And according to Amanda, there was no shortage of attempts by Gerard (40) to woo her.
"It's a while back now but I would have socialised with him a good bit," she told the Diary. "He was gorgeous but I wasn't too fussed on his chat-up lines. They were a bit abrupt for my liking.
"He slept with many friends of mine, but never myself."
Amanda says she's confident that the former Friends star Jennifer Aniston and Gerard are the real deal. But she added that her pal is not the "settling down" type, and says it's unlikely the Hollywood A-Listers will ever wed.
According to the buxom blonde: "I do think him and Jen are sleeping together but he's not the settling type.
The high-profile pair, who starred in blockbuster The Bounty Hunter together, have been determined to keep the media guessing about their relationship.
Last month they set tongues wagging by taking a holiday to Cabo, Mexico together.
Ironically, Amanda says that turning down the actor's advances has helped her to stay friends with the star since he hit the big time.
In fact, Gerard was among the celebs who made an impromptu appearance at the author's New York wedding last September.
Socialite Amanda surprised friends and family in Ireland when she and her new hubby Philip McLaughlin eloped to the States, marrying at an intimate gathering on the seventh-floor roof garden of the Rockefeller Centre in front of just a handful of people -- including Bono and Jon Bon Jovi.
