Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have been spotted chilling, flirting and snowboarding lately – but don't peg them as a new couple just yet, sources say in the new issue of PEOPLE.
Earlier this month, Timberlake invited Biel and a few friends to hang backstage at his concert in San Diego, and the pair were spotted snowboarding together with a group of buddies at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, on Jan. 25.
But a close source insists, "It's all about having fun." Since Timberlake's recent breakup
with Cameron Diaz, the source adds, "He's trying to have a good time."
Of course, there's a good time, and then there's a good
time – a distinction that was clear to witnesses (including an angry Diaz
) who saw them at Prince's Golden Globe party on Jan. 15.
Surrounded by stars, Timberlake, 26, only had eyes for Biel, 24 – also newly single after a fling with Derek Jeter
– as he sipped champagne from her glass and leaned close to talk.
In fact, Biel was so smitten, she confessed her attraction to Timberlake's date: his mom, Lynn. As Biel said, "He is sooo cute!"
Just don't expect Timberlake to crank the heat up too high. Says a source: "He is in no way looking to be in a relationship. He's single and he's happy." (Reps for both declined to comment on their clients' personal lives.)
Meanwhile, don't cry for Diaz – after the Golden Globes, she headed to Hawaii to catch some waves with old pal Kelly Slater
, who spent time with Pamela Anderson and Gisele Bundchen after their splits with Tommy Lee and Leonardo DiCaprio, respectively.
What make's him Hollywood's go-to rebound guy? "He's sensitive and amazing to talk to," says one pal. Adds longtime friend Matt Kechele: "He loves female companionship, and he likes to treat women right."
