Despite their best efforts to play it cool, 90210 stars AnnaLynne McCord and Kellan Lutz are, without a doubt, a couple.
"AnnaLynne was kissing the back of his neck, and they were all over each other," an eyewitness tells E! News of their Valentine's Day behavior at Cain Luxe club. "They are definitely not just friends."
Not surprisingly, when E! News caught up with the pair a few hours earlier at the Monarchy show during New York Fashion Week, they sang an entirely different tune.
"Well, Kellan and I have known each other for a very long time," was pretty much all the former Nip/Tuck starlet had to say on the matter.
"Yeah, my friend," Lutz insisted when we asked the nature of his relationship. But then he went on…and on.
"You know, we're really close and we're all for each other's careers. And we actually bounce a lot of career choices and the like off each other, so it's nice to have someone in the industry who you can really, you know, be honest with versus your agent, versus your manager, the lawyer, who really want to do stuff for the money and for the wrong reasons a lot of times. So it's nice to have friends who are smart and intelligent who know the business side of the business. That's what AnnaLynne is. Therefore we're friends."
Methinks the dude doth protest too much!
Both actors, however, are in total agreement regarding their excitement about the Twilight sequel, New Moon...
While the erstwhile Emmett Cullen simply shared his enthusiasm for being able to hit the gym since his character goes off to college, McCord explained her desires to participate in the Robert Pattinson-fronted film.
The actress recently auditioned for the role of Heidi, a "fisher" vampire and member of the Volturi.
"[The audition] went really well," she said. "We haven't found out yet. I'm just sitting here, crossing the fingers, hoping it'll work out. I really loved meeting with Chris Weitz. He's a darling director, and it would be cool to work on it. Obviously, I'm a fan of Twilight. I'm a huge vampire fan, so that, in general, makes me want to do the film."
But the budding fashionista isn't daunted by the demure size of the part.
"Honestly, for me, I really just want to do something really quick, very easy and be a part of a great film…And then just go to Europe and be abroad and go to sleep for my hiatus before I go back to 90210. So I am more than happy to take the small role and then just take a week or two and go chill."
Perhaps she'll take a certain, bulked-up someone on said European journey?
