Is Justin Theroux really playing matchmaker for Ben Stiller following the actor’s separation? That’s the claim in one of this week’s new tabloids, but Gossip Cop has the truth.

As Gossip Cop reported, Stiller and wife Christine Taylor split in late May after 17 years of marriage. An article in the latest issue of Life & Style now claims the actor’s longtime friend Theroux, who co-wrote Tropic Thunder and Zoolander 2 with him, is trying to get Stiller to start dating other women.

A supposed “source” tells the magazine Theroux “wants all his friends to be as happy as he is,” but “playing matchmaker” for Stiller is “tricky because Justin is also good friends with Christine.” The outlet’s dubious insider adds, “Ben wants someone who has a career and a life of her own. Justin’s working hard to find him the perfect smart, funny new girl.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for Theroux, who exclusively assures us he isn’t on the hunt to find Stiller a new girlfriend, and the magazine’s claim otherwise is simply “false.” This story was seemingly fabricated simply because the two actors happen to be pals, but there’s no truth to any of it. Of course, Life & Style has repeatedly published bogus stories about Theroux’s marriage to Jennifer Aniston, so we’re not surprised the outlet is now exploiting his friendship with Stiller.

Earlier this year, Gossip Cop debunked the tabloid’s cover story alleging Theroux dumped Aniston on her 48th birthday. Naturally, the two are still happily married. We also busted the publication last December when it falsely claimed Theroux and Aniston were divorcing over the holidays, which obviously never happened. This latest article regarding the actor’s supposed involvement in Stiller’s love life is equally untrue.
