Sandra Bullock went shopping with Louis this weekend. The photo agency says she was being all cagey about the man in the red hat who was with them. They call him her “mystery man”. Supposedly when they saw photographers they split up and used different entrances and left separately.

He looks to me like Jonathon Komack-Martin, Ryan Reynold’s producing partner. Earlier this year the tabloids suggested that he and Sandy were dating which she denied. Sort of. Here was her statement to Gossip Cop at the time:

“For over a decade now, I have been so lucky to have Jonathon and Ryan as my friends, and I agree with the reports that they are both very handsome and a great catch! But the only man who has stolen my heart is my son. And for now I wouldn’t have it any other way!”

The thing with Sandy though is that she can be pretty clever with her words. Back in the day, when she and Matthew McConaughey were happening, she’d say that “We are friends”, deflecting the rumours but omitting the word “just” in front of “friends”, cheekily clarifying later that she’d carefully chosen her words so that she couldn’t be accused of lying. She and McConaughey were indeed a couple for a while.

I suppose then that “stolen my heart” could mean anything. And unless it’s an express denial, like “I am not dating Jonathon and we are not romantically involved”, that could still be a possibility. Not enough substantial gossip to be able to make a call on this one yet. Will keep you posted.
