"We are very good friends," Bosworth told PEOPLE Tuesday at a Chanel dinner in New York honoring Vanessa Paradis for Rouge Coco lipstick. "He's a wonderful, wonderful man. I adore him."
Bosworth, 27, and Skarsgard, 33, met last year while filming in Shreveport, La., and were spotted together last week at Hollywood's Chateau Marmont, where she gave him a quick smooch on the lips. Still, she remained coy when pressed about their relationship status.
"That's a minefield, man! I'm not stepping into that," she said. "I've learned too well from being on that road."
One thing that's for certain is that Bosworth's vampire friend looks for a sense of humor in a woman.
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, the blonde beauty admits she's a romantic, but says she likes to celebrate love every day.
"I feel like it's one of those holidays that is a little too loaded. It has too much pressure involved," said Bosworth. "But for me, if you love somebody you say it to them every day and don't need a day for it. It's the little things like that I love."
