Watch: Jamie Foxx Responds to Katie Holmes Dating Rumors

Are they or aren't they?! That's been the ongoing question when it comes to Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx.

It was just a few days ago that romance rumors between this famous pair were sparked up again after a report claimed the stars have "been hooking up on the DL" for the past year and a half. Both Holmes and Foxx remained mum on the speculation at the time, but now the Annie star has spoken!

Foxx was caught by a paparazzo while walking back to his car in Los Angeles, and he asked the celeb about Katie. "Oh come on, you guys have been trying to get that to stick for three years," Foxx responded.

When asked for clarification, Jamie reassured the shutterbug that the two are "just friends" and are actually working together on an upcoming animated project. "That's all it is," he added.

The Jamie-Katie love affair questions stemmed from the 4th annual Apollo in the Hamptons benefit which took place in August 2013. It was here that the Hollywood duo were photographed dancing together. According to reports, though, the Annie star also rocked out with Ellen DeGeneres and other stars that night, too.

Plus, dancing doesn't equal dating. "I had Colin Powell on stage dancing [too]," Jamie later quipped to ABC News, "so they could have said me and Colin Powell were dating!"

He also told Entertainment Tonight that the rumors du jour about him and Katie were "quite hilarious," reiterating that they came about "because we simply danced at a charity event along with a lot of other people."

Sources had confirmed to E! News at the time that Katie and Jamie have hung out on more than one occasion since then, but nothing to make it seem like there's anything more than friendship going on here.
