Scoop: Jen and Gerard are getting touchy-feely 

Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler are playing it coy when it comes to talking about whether they’re a couple. But either they can’t keep their hands off each other, or they’re milking the romance speculation for all the publicity it’s worth.

As they promote “The Bounty Hunter” together in Europe, the former “Friends” star and the “300” actor have offered up some pretty cozy body language for the cameras — paparazzi even caught Gerard with his hand on Jen’s booty!

And on Saturday night, the two took a private cruise down the Seine River in Paris, where they were in full flirty mode.

“They were very close,” a source told People magazine. “They really warmed up the room.”

So what do you think? Is this a romance, a show-mance or a ­no-mance?

Masters not her domain

Elin Nordegren isn’t divorcing Tiger Woods — for now, at least — but her heart doesn’t seem to be in reconciliation mode.

The Swedish model — who’s said to be staying in the marriage for the sake of the couple’s two kids (and just maybe a tidy chunk of change) — isn’t too keen on witnessing her philandering hubby’s return to the world of golf at the Masters Tournament.

“Elin does not want to go to the Masters and is preparing for a trip to see her family and friends in Sweden,” a source told People. “She is also being asked by Tiger to attend the Masters, even if for a half day, to look like she is interested in supporting his return to golf. But she would rather not be there.”

Well, we can’t exactly blame her. But if she’s trying to convince the world that she’s standing by her man, shouldn’t Elin, you know, stand by her man?

Will: Back-seat writer?

Will Smith has been a rapper, an actor and a producer, and now it seems he’s adding a new gig to his resume: script coach.

Only trouble is, the former “Fresh Prince” star’s efforts to improve wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s TV drama “HawthoRNe” are both unsolicited and unwanted — and reportedly even caused delays on the production.

“He is not currently shooting a movie, so he’s been a constant on the set in recent weeks,” a source at the TNT network told the New York Daily News. “He’s been inserting his input and requesting so many changes to the script that it pushed back the production schedule tremendously and caused everything to spiral out of control.”

In fact, the insider said the show recently took an eight-day hiatus that was blamed on a Smith family illness, but may well have been orchestrated to clamp down the chaos.

Though Will’s rep said the report is “untrue” and TNT wouldn’t comment, the insider insisted that the “I Am Legend” star gives writers and producers pages of notes and rewrite requests every week.

Hey, Will: If you really want to help someone’s career, how about looking up DJ Jazzy Jeff?

Bethenny ties the knot

“I’m a real housewife!” Bethenny Frankel tweeted Monday morning — and for the first time, she’s not just playing one on TV. (However, the Bravo network did foot the reportedly $20,000 bill for her wedding.) On Sunday, the reality star became Mrs. Jason Hoppy. And, the couple’s first child is due in June.

Of course, the big question surrounding the nuptials was not “Do you take this man?” but “Which Housewives will show up?”
