‘Jennifer Aniston knocked my socks off’: Secret lover breaks silence over romance
A film crew member who claims to have had a secret relationship with Jennifer Aniston’s has spoken out about their time together.
Brian Bouma, 40, who was pictured leaving Courteney Cox’s home with the 42-year-old in 2008, says he was pursued by the star on the Canadian set of Love Happens that same year.
‘As a lighting technician, you learn not to approach the talent,’ he tells the latest issue of Star magazine. ‘But she approached me.’

‘I was only on set for seven hours. But the old quote says it best: “She had me at hello”.
‘I had a crush on her. It was impossible not to. Jennifer knocked my socks off.’
Bouma, who is 6ft 3in, says she invited him to Los Angeles for 10 days and he accompanied her to best friend Courteney’s Oscars party in Beverly Hills.
He is also understood to have visited her on the set of Marley & Me in South Florida.

He insists the perception of the star as a lonely singleton is off the mark.
‘Not true, not true whatsoever,’ he says.
‘Jen is not the person people think she is. All that stuff about her being lonely is just ridiculous.’
He says the actress ultimately called off their liaison because she prefers bad boys.
‘She did tell me that I was too “Mr Pure”‘.
Jennifer went on to date singer John Mayer on and off before he ended the romance in late 2008.
Bouma had no hard feelings about their split, saying: ‘She’s a lovely, smart woman and a fabulous person’.
