GWYNETH PALTROW's flame BEN AFFLECK has fallen for one of the stars of the top-rated American TV show SURVIVOR.
GOOD WILL HUNTING star Affleck, who has an on-off relationship with Oscar winner Paltrow, 27, was seen flirting madly with 23- year-old COLLEEN HASKELL in a Hollywood hotel last month (25AUG00).
According to onlookers in the trendy bar, Haskell, dubbed 'America's sweetheart' after appearing on the popular reality TV competition, was overwhelmed by Affleck, who couldn't keep his hands off her.
One onlooker told the NATIONAL ENQUIRER, "They were extremely chummy. If you didn't know better, you'd say they're a couple.
"Ben moved close putting on the charm full-throttle, and Colleen was loving it."
But despite their furious flirtation, Haskell has sworn to
friends nothing more happened with Affleck - although she's not
ruling out any further meetings.
She says, "I wouldn't sit by the phone waiting for him to call.
But if he did, who knows?" (LE/NE/PDD)
