There’s no frisky business between Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston, the Scottish star insists. But a photo taken while the two were promoting The Bounty Hunter in Europe suggests otherwise: Butler’s left hand is clearly visible on Aniston’s rear.

“Yeah, I’m a bit of a bad boy,” Butler said in an interview on 104.7 KISS-FM’s Johnjay & Rich Show Friday. “I’m still not sure my hand was really on her butt. I think that s just the way the camera was angled. I haven t actually seen [the picture].”

And the rumors that persist over a romance between Butler and Aniston, who were recently spotted cozying up during a private cruise down the Seine River in Paris? “Not true,” Butler said.

“It’s been two years now of people saying, ‘Are you guys a couple?’ ” Butler said. “And I don’t think it would make any sense to keep denying it for two years. If I was going out with Jennifer, I’d be more than happy to say I’m going out with Jennifer.”
