Kellan Lutz “laughs” when people make assumptions about his love life.
The hunky Twilight actor has been romantically linked to Miley Cyrus recently, after they were spotted sharing a private jet. They were rumored to have been on holiday together and last month they were seen locking lips at a party in Las Vegas.
Kellan has dismissed the speculation, now explaining it comes with the territory of being a star.
“It just makes you laugh when people go into the assumption when you’re photographed with someone who is a public figure and who is single,” he told New York Daily News.
The 28-year-old star has been single since his split from Australian actress Sharni Vinson. Miley is making the most of her newfound freedom after her engagement to Liam Hemsworth was broken off in September 2013.
Kellan hinted that as well as too much being made out of friendships, sometimes speculation about his personal life starts in a more unscrupulous way.
“I’m in the media, I’m single – you crop everyone else out, you start these rumors,” he insisted.
The actor has fervently denied he is romancing Miley at the moment, claiming they are old friends who have been enjoying catching up lately. He suggested they got to know each other six years ago and called her a “great girl” who is fun to be around.
“She’s super talented. She’s a really cool, secure woman. We run in the same circle,” he told radio host Ryan Seacrest.
“Are we dating? No. I’m happily single. I’m not [looking] right now. I’m enjoying life and travelling quite a bit. There’s no real time to find The One.”
Despite this a source told E! News that the pair have “great chemistry” and are enjoying having some relaxed fun together.
