According to his rep, Ashton Kutcher will not be ringing in the new year with a new romantic interest on his arm.
Following a Tweeted photo of himself and Lorene Scafaria in Italy this week, chatter naturally grew that the actor and the screenwriter were now an item.
But the two "are just friends," Kutcher's rep tells People. "They are working on a potential project together about an Italian soccer team."
Well, that does make sense. Ashton knows a lot about scoring.
Scafaria previously dated Adam Brody and wrote the screenplay for Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist. Kutcher, of course, split from Demi Moore this year after she got sick of his wandering penis.
