In Eat Pray Love Julia Roberts (who plays author Elizabeth Gilbert) enjoys a sexy and spiritual rebound fling with James Franco (David). And it seems the rebound romance is flavour of the month in Hollywood, with a stack of celebs falling into the arms of hot men to get over their old relationships…
Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez
Now this is one sexy couple. Halle recently split up with hot model Gabriel Aubry, who she has 2-year-old daughter Nahla with, and seems to have found a connection with Kylie’s ex Olivier Martinez. They’ve been filming in Paris but have been caught passionately kissing and holding hands a number of times off-screen. Ooh la la!
Kate Winslet and Louis Dowler
Kate Winslet kept her split from director Sam Mendes a secret for many months but made no secret about her rebound with Burberry model Louis Dowler as soon as they hooked up a few weeks ago. Kate has been wearing skin tight LBDs at every occassion and showing her hot bod, and hot guy, off. Take that Sam!
Reece Witherspoon and Jim Toth
We never wanted her to split from Ryan Phillippe, but we finally got used to Jake Gyllenhaal. Then earlier this year Reece Witherspoon called it quits and has been seeing Hollywood agent Jim Toth since March. They seem very content and Jim’s enjoying spending time with Reece’s two children.
Cameron Diaz and Alex Rodriguez
That was quick. Baseball star A-Rod moved from Kate Hudson’s apartment into Cameron Diaz’s NYC pad a few months later. Speaking of Kate Hudson…
Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy
Kate Hudson broke up with A-Rod last Decemebr and is back to her groupie best, dating Muse frontman Matt Bellamy. Matt has already been introduced to mum Goldie and has been hanging out with Kate’s son Ryder – it’s just one big happy family!
…And one rebound relationship we couldn’t care less about?
Jesse James and Kat Von D
Jesse has been openly parading his tattoo artist girlfriend Kat Von D around since September, following that very public split from Sandra Bullock mid-year. Tacky.
