Could Whitney Cummings be the one to tame Gerard Butler?

The 29-year-old star of NBC's Whitney flirted up a storm with the notorious ladies' man during an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno Tuesday, where she immediately sat in his lap and told host Jay Leno, 61: "I would like to do the interview from here."

When Cummings joked that she failed to arouse the Machine Gun Preacher actor, he quickly corrected her: "No, that was an erection."

As the funnywoman — who also co-created the new CBS series Two Broke Girls — stroked Butler's face, Leno asked Cummings how she's handling her newfound fame.

"My billboards are everywhere. I'm sorry, America. I am so annoying," she joked. "The good news is, my ex-boyfriends are seeing these. That's the only reason I'm doing a TV show at all."

When Butler, 41, made a dirty joke about Cummings' vandalized billboards, she warned him: "Do not fall in love with me!"

"It's too late for that," said Butler, who's been linked to Jennifer Aniston, Ashley Greene and Jessica Biel in the past.
