    We'll get to Taylor Lautner in a second, but first let's clear up that other dating rumor about Nickelodeon cutie Victoria Justice.

    Buzz began this summer that Justice, 17, was more than just friends with X-Men newbie Nicholas Hoult, 20, after they were spotted together at the Wimbledon tennis tournament. If they were seeing each other back then, the romance didn't last long...

    "No, we're not dating," Justice insisted to us earlier this week at the Casting Society of America Artios Awards in L.A.  "He's a great guy and so talented and deserves everything, but even to maintain a friendship with someone who lives on another continent… It's kind of impossible."

    Most recently seen in A Single Man and Clash of the Titans, Hoult scored the role of Beast in X-Men: First Class opposite James McAvoy, January Jones, Jennifer Lawrence and Kevin Bacon.

    Justice also told us that her friendship with Taylor Lautner isn't as close as the media makes it out to be. "We were closer friends when I was younger, and then we both got kind of busy," Justice told us.  "But if I see him, I'll give him a hug and say 'hi' and we'll chat, but we don't really have sleepovers or anything like that."

    For the record, we think Justice would make a hot couple with either guy!
