Josh Lucas doesn't kiss and tell – but he will say one thing. It's all about location, location, location.
"There's nothing like being in love in New York City," Lucas told reporters at the world premiere of his movie, Tell Tale
, at the Tribeca Film Festival Friday night. "There's a reason why the great filmmakers shoot movies here. It's a magical place."
The New York-based actor has been spotted around town
recently making a little magic with his girlfriend, actress Rachel McAdams
Though Lucas stayed mum about the budding romance – "I have no interest in talking about my relationship," he told reporters, when asked about McAdams – but did have some well wishes for his ex-girlfriend, Salma Hayek
, who got married in Venice
"I love her. It's great for her,” said the actor who split from Hayek in 2004
. "It's what she wanted."
