French TV journalist Laurie Cholewa, who interviewed Gerard Butler as he was promoting The Bounty Hunter in Paris, is really dating the hunky actor now.

Somewhere, a lonely Jennifer Aniston is sobbing once again.

Although Butler has been frequently linked romantically to Aniston, he met Cholewa in Paris recently, then returned back solo to spend more time with her.

Gerard Butler and Laurie Cholewa were spotted admiring the art at the Louvre museum and dining together at two upscale eateries, reports an eyewitness.

"They had some light salads and a bit of wine," a waiter who served them said. "There was definitely a warmth and intimacy between them which suggested that they were getting on very well. They're a very cute couple!"

Has Laurie Cholewa snagged Gerard Butler?

A source at Cholewa's TV station Direct 8 says they "had a great time together and are keeping in touch via phone and email. There's a real connection there. She thinks the relationship might be going somewhere, but we'll have to wait and see."

Yes we will ... unless he knocks up someone else we know.

When contacted by Us Weekly, Cholewa laughed about her famous new boyfriend. "He's a great guy, but you'll have to ask him about this," she demured.

Does she want a serious relationship with Butler, 40? "He's a bit far away!" Cholewa said.

The Cholewa source says she is "smart and not at all star struck," but thinks Butler is great and see looks like she wants to "talk about him all the time."

"She's ambitious...she never stops working, so hasn't had a great deal of time for romance recently. She's extremely sexy though - Gerard is very lucky."

Looks like Jennifer Aniston doesn't have Gerard Butler all to herself.

While he was seen grabbing that booty in Paris recently, setting off rumors once again that he and Jennifer are a couple (or at least friends with benefits), new reports say he struck up a relationship with Laurie Cholewa that same weekend.

Butler met Cholewa, a local TV interviewer, the prior weekend, then returned to Paris midweek for a date with Laurie Cholewa that stretched from day into night.

Sounds serious! Or at least like they were having a nice time.

Has Gerard Butler got his eye on Laurie Cholewa?

The two were seen strolling hand in hand through the French capital, visiting landmarks like the Louvre museum, where they ate lunch at the Café Marly.

They had dinner on the Left Bank that same evening.

A source reports that despite all of the Jennifer Aniston rumors, Butler "completely cracked" for Cholewa during their interview about The Bounty Hunter.

Cholewa, a film reporter, hosts a show on local cable channel, Direct 8. Poor Jen. First the worst Hollywood split ever and now she still can't get a break.
