Last time we checked in with Eva Mendes, she was cohabitating with her boyfriend of about a decade, Peruvian filmmaker George Augusto. But the rumor mill has begun whispering about her recent quality time with in-demand funnyman Jason Sudeikis.
The New York Post believes "things seem to be heating up" between the duo, who apparently enjoyed a double-date with the actor's "Horrible Bosses" co-star Jason Bateman and his wife, Amanda Anka, at a New York eatery on Friday night (a day later, Bateman dined with his other "Bosses" co-star, Jennifer Aniston, and her new love, Justin Theroux).
"Eva and Jason went out for a smoke break," relays an eyewitness, "and he told her, 'We make a great team.'" Of course, he could have been referring to their comedic rapport.
A few days earlier, Hollywood Life claims they were hugging, holding hands and locking lips at the 24 Hour Plays benefit in Santa Monica.
Eva's rep did not respond to our request for comment on the romance rumblings.
Sudeikis has been quite the hot dating commodity since divorcing his "30 Rock" writer wife, Kay Cannon, last year. In addition to his brief hookup with January Jones, he's been linked to both Aniston and Scarlett Johansson (the rumors were denied all around).
