AnnaLynne McCord and Kellan Lutz: Just friends, she says
The scene was the Peach Pit, also known as Kokomo Cafe, in Los Angeles. The CW hosted a cocktail party for TCA's press tour attended by most of the "90210" cast.
AnnaLynne McCord, who plays the vixen, Naomi, wanted to get something straight: She is a single woman and she doesn't mind if you know it.
Since pictures of her and "Twilight" costar Kellan Lutz emerged on the Internet around New Year's, the tabloids have been abuzz about the new romance. But McCord, 21, denied it on Monday, saying she's known Lutz since she was 16 and they are just friends.
The two young actors, she said, met while working at Abercrombie & Fitch.
"I don’t have a boyfriend," she said. "I know it’s a funny thing. He and his costar Ashley [Greene] and I recently did some events in Miami together. We have the same agency [Innovative Artists] so we did some events in Miami together. We had a really great time."
And, no, that great time did not involve any boyfriend-girlfriend kissy-kissy stuff, she said. She only does that stuff on camera.
