London, May 6: A lighting technician has spoken out about his brief romance with Jennifer Aniston, insisting the actress instigated their romance.
Brian Bouma, 40, met the actress on the sets of her 2008 movie ‘Love Happens’ and claims she made the first move and invited him to spend 10 days with her in in Beverly Hills. She later asked him to visit her when she shot comedy movie ‘Marley and Me’, reports contactmusic.com.
‘As a lighting technician, you learn not to approach the talent, but she approached me. I was only on set for seven hours. I had a crush on her,’ he said.
‘All that’s written about her being lonely is just ridiculous. I didn’t spend time with Jen because she was famous or successful. It was because of the conversation that first time we spoke. She’s genuine, sincere and charismatic,’ he added.
According to Bouma, Aniston who embarked on a romance with musician John Mayer soon after ending their relationship, prefers ‘bad boys’ and made him feel like a ‘school boy’ during their time together.
‘It was an overwhelming experience. I guess she just wasn’t that into me. She did tell me that I was too ‘Mr. Pure’. She kind of made me feel and act like a young school boy,’ he said.
Aniston is said to be ‘mortified’ by Bouma’s revelations and is shocked he has decided to make their romance public.
