Cameron Diaz is not dating magician Criss Angel. Criss, who publicly declared his love for the actress earlier this week, claims he and Cameron are "just friends".
The illusionist told a magazine, "I just said that because
everyone was hounding me about it and at the end of the day I got
it out there, so my professional life is there, my personal life is
here. Cameron's an amazing person, and I wish her the best with her
Shrek tour right now, but I'm not going to discuss her
After completing a death-defying stunt in New York on Monday, in which Criss escaped from a concrete block suspended above Times Square, Criss announced, "I'd like to dedicate this to my girl Trouble, a.k.a Cameron. I love you, baby".
Criss, 39, also denied romance reports on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show.
When asked if he and Cameron, 34, were dating, he said, "Listen, Cameron, one of the hottest, most beautiful Hollywood actresses. Look at me. Do you think Cameron would have any interest in me as more than a friend? No way. We're just friends."
Over the past two weeks, Cameron and Criss have been seen together in Las Vegas.
The blonde actress is currently promoting animated film Shrek the Third in Europe.
