Kate Middleton has moved on to some British bloke named Henry Ropner.

And now it appears as though Jennifer Aniston is following in the dating footsteps of Prince William’s ex-girlfriend. The actress has bagged a Brit of her own.

Celebrity gossip bloggers were running rampant with speculation over the identity of the mystery man with whom Aniston shared a romantic dinner over Memorial Day weekend. But the case is now solved:

It’s 36-year-old British model Paul Sculfor.

“He’s a lovely guy,” says Sculfor’s friend and former flame, London socialite Lady Victoria Hervey. “A gentleman. Simple things, like opening doors, he does all that. He’ll think of the woman before himself.”

Reportedly, the hunk and Jennifer have been an item for a few weeks now. He may be replacing Calum Best as the most talked about, random English dude in the States.

Sculfor is a six-foot-tall former boxer and construction worker who has shown up in ads for Christian Dior and Jean Paul Gaultier, but he may be best known for a British commercial he starred in for Levi’s, in which he plays a drowned fisherman with three mermaids desperately after him and his jeans.

Sculfor and Aniston were first spotted out together over Memorial Day weekend, when they had an intimate dinner at Santa Monica’s One Pico restaurant in the Shutters Hotel. The timing is ideal for the actress, as she attempts to overcome any and all Angelina Jolie nude news. It’s just awkward for her.

Single since she split from Vince Vaughn last year after more than a year together, Aniston has taken her time getting back on the dating scene. Sculfor, meanwhile, formerly dated Lisa Snowdon (yes, George Clooney’s ex) for two years.

As Jennifer celebrates her good fortune, we can only assume British babes such as Lucy Pinder are wondering how one of their own ended up with an American.
