**Prince Harry may be married now, but back in 2009, he was a 24-year-old with his eyes set out . . . for JENNIFER ANISTON.

According to a new book, Harry started his crush on Jennifer after she posed topless for the cover of "GQ" magazine.  He even told friends she was, quote, "princess material", and started texting her.

But she was 40 at the time, so she didn't want to mess with him . . . quote, "[She> was aware of Harry's crush but didn't want to lead him on because of the age difference."

**There's a 55-year-old guy whose real name is Kevin Bacon from Wells River, Vermont and he was driving last Thursday afternoon when he accidentally sideswiped a parked COP CAR.

Why did he hit the cop?  Kevin Bacon was looking at his phone searching for . . . an episode of "Saved by the Bell" he wanted to watch.

He even told the cops WHICH episode he wanted and they included it in their police report.  It was the episode called "Screech's Spaghetti Sauce," where the gang bottles and sells a spaghetti sauce Screech makes in a cooking class.

It's not clear WHY Kevin Bacon wanted to watch that episode . . . or why it was so important that he had to do it while he was driving. He was arrested and charged with gross negligent operation of a vehicle, leaving the scene of a crash, and texting while driving.

**Britain's not-always-reliable "Sun" tabloid says CHRIS MARTIN from COLDPLAY and DAKOTA JOHNSON from "Fifty Shades" have SPLIT.

Supposedly, he's been telling his friends he's single, and that they broke up last month.  Another tabloid says that they've been "arguing for months," because Chris wanted more kids, but Dakota "wasn’t ready to have children."

There's no official word on this alleged 'conscious uncoupling.'  They've been dating for about a year and a half.
