London: Jennifer Aniston’s secret lover, a film crew member, has claimed that he had a relationship with her.
Brian Bouma, 40, said Aniston, 42, pursued him on the Canadian set of ‘Love Happens’ in 2008.
“As a lighting technician, you learn not to approach the talent. But she approached me,” the Daily Mail quoted him as telling the latest issue of Star magazine.
“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,” he revealed.
Bouma said she invited him to Los Angeles for 10 days and he accompanied her to her best friend Courteney Cox’s Oscars party in Beverly Hills.
He is also understood to have visited her on the set of ‘Marley and Me’ in South Florida.
He said the actress ultimately called off their liaison because she preferred bad boys, and that he had no hard feelings about their split.
“She did tell me that I was too ‘Mr Pure’,” he said.
“She’s a lovely, smart woman and a fabulous person,” he added.
