Jenny Lewis Dating Bill Murray?
Lewis, 39, and Murray, 65, were at the center of dating rumors following a speculative Page Six article about the Rock the Kasbah premiere. According to the write-up, Lewis, who was at the premiere, is Murray’s “current younger love interest” and “special friend.”
However, Lewis, who fronted Rilo Kiley before launching her successful solo career, is not romantically involved with the St. Vincent star, a source told Us Weekly. The two are merely close pals.
“It’s not true,” a source told E! News. “They’re just friends.”
Lewis and Murray’s friendship has been well documented, according to The Daily Beast. The two were spotted backstage at one of Lewis’ concerts in 2008 and were photographed taking in a basketball game together in 2010. Back in January, they participated in the 20th Anniversary Poets House Bridge Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge in each other’s company.
Though Lewis walked away from her acting career to pursue music, she will be making an exception to make an appearance in her close pal’s upcoming Netflix special, A Very Murray Christmas. She’s in good company, as the special, directed by Sofia Coppola, will also feature George Clooney, Miley Cyrus, Amy Poehler and Chris Rock.
