"Yeah we do. We're good-looking," he tells PEOPLE at a Pampers with Dry Max launch event in New York. "I'm kidding. Kelly's beautiful -- and I just had my toupee redone, so I should look OK."
Jokes aside, are the Gossip Girl costars feeling pressure to spark an off camera romance?
"I don't know. I guess. I haven't heard anything from the fans that we should date, but I don't know," Rutherford tells PEOPLE.
The two have been leaning on each other since Settle's separation from his wife and throughout Rutherford's ongoing divorce."He's been really supportive," she says. "He's a great friend and I really appreciate that."
Adds Settle: "We're good friends. Kelly and I have a lot in common because we are supporting each other at this time in our lives."
Their most important bond, however, may be over their young children. Rutherford has a son Hermes, 3, and daughter Helena, 8 months, and Settle has a daughter Aven Angelica, 1. "We go to a lot of kids events together and bring the kids and it's a lot of fun," she says. They even have some play dates lined up for their children.
"We finished working for the hiatus, but we've got a few play dates coming up," Settle says. "We're going to take the kids out in the park and stuff." --Carlos Greer
