Joshua Jackson, Ruth Wilson Hooking Up?
Are Joshua Jackson and Ruth Wilson hooking up? A rumor about “The Affair” co-stars dating is gaining steam. Gossip Cop can exclusively separate the fact from the fiction.
“Secret Affair?” asks a headline in the new issue of Star, which says, “It looks like life is imitating art for the newly single actors.” The magazine explains, “Eight hours had passed since ‘The Affair’s Joshua Jackson and Ruth Wilson sat down to lunch on Aug. 22 at Gemma restaurant in New York City when he planted a kiss on the top of her head and they headed to a hotel together.”
A so-called “eyewitness” is quoted as saying, “They could’ve easily been mistaken for a couple. The more they drank, the more physical they became. They couldn’t keep their hands off each other!” And, according to the tabloid, a “source” close to the co-stars isn’t “surprised to hear Joshua and Ruth have been spending time together off set since his split from Diane Kruger.”
“We’re all wondering if this could be the start of something special,” says the outlet’s supposed snitch. “The chemistry between Joshua and Ruth has always been undeniable. If they had both been single from the start, there’s no doubt in my mind Joshua and Ruth would’ve been hooking up.” That leads Star to suggestively wonder, “Making up for lost time, are we?”
Actually, no. Jackson and Wilson did indeed enjoy each other’s company last month, as captured by paparazzi photographers, who snapped photos of the two drinking and chatting. Tellingly, though, there’s no pictures of the PDA the tabloid claims took place in front of other diners at a Manhattan restaurant. And that brings us to the “fiction” part of the outlet’s tale.
Jackson and Wilson are co-stars and friends, nothing more, despite this story’s claims. A source close to the situation exclusively tells Gossip Cop that the hooking up allegations are “100 percent false.”
