Gwyneth Paltrow and Ross the Intern: BFFs?

Who knew? Our spies caught the pair at Orso restaurant in Los Angeles on Wednesday night. Well actually, our spies first spotted Ross Mathews sitting alone having some drinks while patiently waiting for his gal pal. When G finally arrived, the pair were like two high school girls giggling up a storm.

Paltrow and her pal met four years ago when Ross was sent to London on assignment for "The Tonight Show." He interviewed Gwyneth, they went shopping for posh duds and have been friends ever since.

One thing our informant pointed out, "Ross looked amazing!" The witty and charming intern can be seen on VH1's Celebrity Fit Club -- our guess is he's lost at least 30 pounds. Way to go, gurl! But if you wanna keep it off while waiting for your friends, try water -- alcohol can sure add the lbs.!
