Are Owen Wilson and Jessica Simpson together??

From MSN:

They're both blond Texans with bumpy noses, but are Jessica Simpson and Owen Wilson trying to discover if they have a deeper connection? So claim the shutterbugs at photo agency X17, who are convinced the stacked, sinewy starlet, 27, and the on-the-mend funnyman, 38, had a hush-hush rendezvous Sunday night in Los Angeles.

Jessica and Owen reportedly turned up separately at the swanky Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica and proceeded to enjoy an hour-long tête-à-tête.

"They looked cozy, like it was a first date," a bystander tells X17. "They both looked kind of nervous. And they were obsessed with not being recognized or photographed. Hotel security was on high alert and they both had escorts when they left."

Perhaps the fair-haired pair was simply worried about sparking romance speculation over a 60-minute meeting, which is short even by really bad date standards.

Star, however, says things went so swimmingly they soon made a beeline for Owen's Malibu pad.

"He couldn't keep his hands off her," a spy asserts to the tab.

Still, a source close to Jessica downplays the dating rumors to MSN Entertainment, insisting she's just pals with the once and perhaps future Butterscotch Stallion, who is gradually tiptoeing back into the public eye after his reported suicide attempt in August.

Seems the two decided to meet up after hanging out at Willie Nelson's Oct. 16 video shoot at his Austin-area ranch, where they took part in the so-called Bad Boy Lawnmower race with the likes of Woody Harrelson, Dan Rather (?) and Owen's brother Luke, who co-stars with Simpson in the rumored-to-be-heading-straight-to-DVD "Blonde Ambition."

When contacted about the hotel confab, Jessica's spokeswoman told MSN Entertainment she doesn't comment on her client's personal life.

Wilson's mouthpiece, however, pooh-poohs the hookup whispers to "Entertainment Tonight," calling the meet-and-greet "purely accidental" and denying they're an item.

This isn't the first time Jessica and Owen's romantic paths have crossed in recent days. Turns out the tabloids have painted them into a bit of a love triangle rectangle.

On the heels of her alleged blink-and-you'll-miss-it liaison with Orlando Bloom, the former Mrs. Lachey and onetime squeeze of John Mayer has supposedly been getting to know her "Employee of the Month" co-star Dax Shepard, at least according to an Australian tab.

Meanwhile, Britain's Heat magazine believes Wilson, who has recently been snapped spending quality time with ex-girlfriend-cum-burlesque dancer Carolina Cerisola, is feeling optimistic about reuniting with ex Kate Hudson, who purportedly handed Dax his walking papers a few weeks ago after very publicly tangling tongues over the summer.

The problem with these ostensible love connections?

Hudson and Shepard were together on Saturday night, when the actress hosted a star-packed Halloween bash at her Los Angeles mansion.
