"She's a beautiful woman so that's only a nice rumor, but it's not true."

The actor continues to tow the just friends line about his relationship with Court, saying: "It's cliché. I know it, but we really are friends."
"Our dynamic off-camera is similar [to on-camera]," he added.
But not in the couple sense, OK?
