Feliz Cumpleanos, Miss Aniston!

Jennifer Aniston turns 41 February 11, so she hit Mexico for some fun in the sun with her best pals and rumored new love -- Gerard Butler.

Jennifer Aniston in Cabo with Gerard ButlerThe photos of Aniston in Cabo San Lucas on February 6 on vacation are out (at right)! They showcase a gorgeous, bikini-clad Aniston hanging out poolside with Courteney Cox, Sheryl Crow, David Arquette and her rumored love interest, Gerard Butler.

Fans may recall that Aniston celebrated the big 4-0 last year with a risqué and nearly naked GQ cover that read, "Lordy, Lordy, This Woman is 40."

Needless to say, she looks just as smashing a year later in these new Aniston bikini shots, but it's her Butler, not her bikini, that has everyone talking.

Word is her costar from the upcoming flick The Bounty Hunter showed up a few days into the trip and was on hand for her big b-day fiesta at Aquos restaurant.

Since Aniston's infamous split with ex-hubby Brad Pitt in 2005, she's made a run of it with Vince Vaughn and John Mayer, who recently admitted he's still not over her breakup, while Pitt has moved on with Angelina Jolie.

Interestingly, Aniston's upcoming flick, Bounty Hunter, with Butler involves a bounty hunter who tracks down his on-the-lam ex wife and efforts to bring her in. Calamity ensued and early reports point to sizzling sexual chemistry. The set up sound an awful lot like the romantic comedy version of Mr & Mrs Smith, the action flick that introduced Pitt and Jolie.

Mirroring what happened with Pitt and Jolie while filming the Smith's, speculation abounds about a romance between Aniston and hunky Butler starting while they were still shooting Bounty back in July.

They were spotted being affectionate offset, but Butler shrugged off the talk, saying they get a good laugh out of the rumors. "She's like my best buddy," he said back then. "She's so down-to-earth, so easy going. She's incredibly self-deprecating and again, just alive! I'm having fun doing this!"

The chatter hit high gear last month, however, after Butler escorted Aniston to the Golden Globes. The pair worked the red carpet together, posing arm in arm, and was also reportedly spotted kissing behind the scenes. Us Magazine even claims their "canoodling" was so overt that they were the talk of the walkie-talkies at the event. Word is they again drew attention with a longing eye-lock during the Hope for Haiti event.

With Bounty Hunter set to open March 19, all this press about their chemistry can't hurt...and if they're a couple, well good luck to them. Either way, happy birthday, Jen!

jennifer congratulations that you are dating another man aside from your ex Brad. You are better off finding another person to be with rather than brad pitt. We made the same mistake that you have experienced and it never went smooth our curse started as soon as we decided to hook up with our ex husband who have another family and children and yet most people around the world hated us and not just that the children he have with this woman was so distraught inside so accept our opinion you will never be the same no matter what you are famous and fans or no fans will be upset with your standard try someone who is not an artist but with decent and educated anyway trust our instinct and opinion you are better off without brad pitt he is such a confused and insensitive person who just cant keep his decision what he really wanted and yet being in pain from your separation is just enough you deserve better and not just sweet talks think with your head and heart not just your heart as it is always treacherous. Good Luck and God Bless

Great article! Finally someone is reasonable about this relationship. They are both special people - not typical Hollywood. Just "Nice". (I've actually met Gerard Butler - he couldn't have been sweeter) And they make a handsome couple. And I agree, if they are a couple, good luck to them both!
