Usually when you read about Jen Aniston having a private dinner with an infamous, Oscar-winning ladies’ man, it’s the start of months of romance rumors. But let’s hope that’s not the case with her dinner date Tuesday night — legendary director Woody Allen.

Sneaking in through an underground garage with a couple of security guards, the former Friends star joined the Vicky Cristina Barcelona director and his wife, Soon-Yi Allen, along with her rep, Kevin Huvane, for a dinner meeting at chic L.A. eatery Madeo.

The foursome sat together in a booth at the back of the restaurant while Jen’s security studs stood watch at the bar. Jen dined on Dover sole while chatting with Woody about an upcoming project.

"He didn’t show her a full script," one witness tells OK!. "But he did hand her four or five pages of dialog, which had her laughing hysterically. They were all really enjoying themselves."

If Jen was hoping to take the script home to mull over, she was out of luck. "After she finished reading her pages, Woody took them back," reveals the witness.

At the end of their 90-minute meeting, during which no contracts or paperwork of any sort were involved, Jen and her guards slipped quietly out the back.
