Are Justin Theroux and Sienna Miller dating? That’s the latest rumor to emerge after they’ve been seen together several times. Gossip Cop, however, can reveal the truth.
“Justin & Sienna Just Friends?” asks a headline in OK! Australia. The tabloid contends that though Theroux has been “spotted cozying up to a bevy of beauties” since his split with Jennifer Aniston, he “only had eyes” for Miller at a star-studded event last week. Theroux and Miller were among the celebrities at the Bruv Club by Chaos x Love launch party in New York City, and the magazine notes they appeared to be “at ease with other as they posed” for photos.
The outlet goes on to point out that Theroux and Miller were also recently in France together to support Louis Vuitton, for which they’re both brand ambassadors. “Justin’s always been a classic ladies’ man and flirt. Women are just drawn to Justin,” a so-called “insider” is quoted as saying. Yet the publication provides no evidence that Theroux was flirting with Miller at any of the events they both attended over the last few weeks.
Still, the tabloid goes on to ask, “So is this another case of ‘just friends’ or could there be something more between the two?” Real journalistic outlets, of course, don’t pose such questions to readers. Rather, they research and investigate in order to deliver facts. Instead, the magazine opted to speculate and fuel a rumor.
The article tries to make hay out of Miller and Theroux seeming to be “at ease” with one another, but that’s generally how pals act. Friends are also supportive of each other, which is why Theroux showed up earlier this week when Miller hosted a charity event for International Medical Corps. It does not mean there is a romance between them. In fact, WWD covered the International Medical Corps gathering and specifically noted in its story that Theroux was “rather chummy” not with Miller but Zoe Buckman.
But sightings of “The Leftovers” star with either woman should not make the gossip media assume a relationship is blossoming. People, in a story about Theroux and Miller hanging together in New York and France, astutely pointed out that he’s been “spending time with a host of famous friends” over the last few months, both male and female. That’s really all there is to it: Theroux is being social. And while reps for the pair declined to comment, a Miller source exclusively tells Gossip Cop that there’s “no truth” to the dating rumors and they are indeed “just friends.”
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
