With just days to go before Kellan Lutz and his oiled-up pecs hit theaters in "The Legend the Hercules," he's dropping Miley Cyrus' name while making the promotional rounds. During a radio chat with Ryan Seacrest on Monday, the brawny "Twilight" second banana responded to recent romance rumors, calling them "hilarious."
"It just makes me laugh," said Kellan. "I've been friends with Miley for six years now. She's a great girl. … We run in the same circle. … She's a really good friend of mine."
According to Lutz, Cyrus is a "cool, secure woman," but he insists they're not an item.
"Are we dating? No," he said. "I'm happily single. … I'm not [looking for a relationship] right now. I'm enjoying life. I'm traveling quite a bit. … There's no real time to find the one."
In recent weeks, Miley, 21, and Kellan, 28, have sparked dating talk galore after they were spotted exiting a private plane together in Miami and swapping spit while clubbing in Las Vegas.
"They are both spontaneous, fun people, so their personalities match," a source explains to E! News. "They are having fun together. They have very similar outlooks. I am not sure if it has a future but they have great chemistry so for the time being they are just having fun."
