Their movie may be up for 10 Oscars, but the big question surrounding Slumdog Millionaire stars Dev Patel and Freida Pinto is, "Are you dating?"

Not each other, not even anyone else, they both insisted on the red carpet leading into the Kodak Theatre Sunday night.

Speaking to E! pre-show host Ryan Seacrest, Patel, 18, and Pinto, 24, displayed pained expressions at the very question about the rumors that they are an item.

"No, no, no," emphasized Patel.

Despite the runaway success of their movie, "No one called to ask me out," Pinto insisted to an incredulous Seacrest. He then asked, "Not even one celebrity?" – which prompted her to quip to Seacrest, "I've been waiting for you to call me up."
