Evan Rachel WoodEvan Rachel Wood has dismissed rumours that she’s dating her The Wrestler co-star Mickey Rourke.

Evan plays Mickey’s daughter in the critically acclaimed film but rumours began to swirl about the pair after Mickey was spotted being quite touchy-feely with the 21 year old at the weekend’s SAG Awards and onlookers claimed the couple enjoyed a kiss.

However, Evan, who previously dated Marilyn Manson, told Rolling Stone magazine that she was saddened and annoyed by the rumours: “I’m upset because I feel disrespected by the press and by Mr Rourke.

“I’m not attracted to him, he’s too old for me. Nothing ever happened and nothing ever will.

“Just because I’m single doesn’t mean that you can take advantage of me. It’s unfair that the performances might suffer because of all of these distractions.”

She added that after finishing with Manson late last year, she’s enjoying being single for the time being: “I’m not going to rush into anything.

“I can go on a road trip with my girlfriends any time. I don’t have to check in with people. I can stay out late. I can talk to guys, no one freaks out!”
