Jessica Biel’s Santa Monica Lunch Date

Posted Friday November 16, 2012 12:22 PM GMT

Stepping out for a social call, Jessica Biel showed up at The Ivy By the Shore Restaurant in Santa Monica, California yesterday afternoon (November 15).

The “Summer Catch” cutie met up with a friend at the popular eatery and the two pals caught on on life since Biel recently married Justin Timberlake.

Speaking of the Justin/Jessica nuptials, it sounds like “300” hunk Gerard Butler is feeling a little remorseful that his relationship with Biel never amounted to anything.

An insider told press, "Gerard doesn't have many regrets, but not treating Jessica with the respect she deserved while they dated is one of them. He genuinely believes she was the one that got away."

"Jessica liked Gerard a lot — she was into his boyish nature, but she wanted something more serious. She was ready to settle down. That's why, after getting close on the set of Playing for Keeps back in 2011, their relationship soon fizzled out."

"The relationship wasn't meant to be, and when things petered out in Oct. 2011, Biel patched things up with Timberlake — who wasn't about to let Biel be the one who got away from him, either. Timberlake proposed in January, and the two tied the knot in Italy in October."
