Are Hayden Panettiere and Mark Sanchez dating -- or just fast-food junkies?

Actress Hayden Panettiere and New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez might make a picture-perfect couple, but that doesn't mean the duo are actually an item.

It all started with an innocent trip to a Malibu In-N-Out Burger over Memorial Day weekend when paparazzi photos of the pair walking side by side started romance rumors, but it looks like Sanchez isn't actually Panettiere's rebound guy.

"They're not dating at all," a source tells People. "They're really just friends." So the fast food run wasn't an actual burger date.

Of course, Panettiere is no stranger to high-profile relationships; she just got out of one a few weeks ago. The starlet announced her split from Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko in mid-May. And who can forget her romance with "Heroes" costar Milo Ventimiglia?

For now, it looks as if Hayden is still one of the single ladies.
