Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid just split earlier this month, but Cox is rumored to have already moved on with her Friends costar Matthew Perry.

Courteney Cox & Matthew Perry

“They’ve leaned on each other before, during her infertility struggle and his battle with addiction,” a source told Star magazine. “Matthew invited her over to talk one night, and they ended up hooking up!”

“There isn’t any pressure to put a label on it yet, but they’re excited to see where this might go,” the source added.

Aside from the report in Star, a tweet posted on Twitter by a Friends fan account earlier this month fanned the flames of the rumor. The post, which features a side-by-side picture of Monica and Chandler on Friends and Cox and Perry in real life is captioned, “matthew looks at courteney the same way chandler looks at monica and i don’t know what to do with myself.”

As the tweeter pointed out after the post began to go viral, the picture is from several years ago, and has nothing to do with the recent speculation about a possible real life romance brewing between the two actors.

Despite the recent reports and the heartwarming decade-old picture, Cox and Perry are apparently not dating. The “friends with benefits” claim is “not true,” a source told Gossip Cop.

Cox called off her engagement to Snow Patrol guitarist McDaid in early December. Perry has not been in a public relationship since his six-year romance with Masters of Sex star Lizzy Caplan.
