He's set to star in one of the most highly anticipated dramas of 2014 – the big budget The Legend of Hercules – but in real life, Kellan Lutz says he's busy with a comedy: the idea that he's dating Miley Cyrus.

"Why would you assume that someone was dating?" Lutz said to Today hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, when asked about a photo of the two celebs taken at a party in Las Vegas (left).

"It's comical for me,” Lutz, 28, added. "I'm a public figure, she's a public figure. I've been friends with her for six years, and we're in the same circle."

Lutz, who up until now was best known for his role as Emmett Cullen in the Twilight series, says the press has become increasingly interested in his love life.



"When two people are single in the industry, they'll crop out pictures – I just saw one with Michelle Rodriguez and I where, she's on one end of the photo, I'm on the other – they put us together,” he says.

"I'm dating everyone these days. Let's just start that rumor!"

The Legend of Hercules hits theaters Friday.
