How can Jennifer Aniston finally get the press to leave her alone, get back at Brad Pitt and find eternal happiness? Date James Franco.

That's Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger's recommendation, at least. “How do you top Brad? You top Brad by pulling in James Franco,” she said on Access Hollywood. “This would be great onscreen chemistry, as well in the bedroom at home. I think she’d get the hot factor back in her life with that.”

Franco, 32, approached with the offer, seemed amenable. “She’s a very beautiful woman,” he said. “I think she’s dating someone.” Franco currently appears in Oscar-contender 127 Hours as a hiker who must cut off his own arm to survive, and is also enrolled in the Ph.D. program for English Literature at Yale University. Asked more directly if he would date Aniston, 41, if she were single, Franco smiled and nodded. –AMY LEE
