It's only been a couple months since actors Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet announced their separation. So of course, Momoa's public appearance in proximity of any woman will set tongues wagging.
After Momoa and actor Kate Beckinsale were seen together at Vanity Fair's Oscars after-party last week, rumors began to swirl they were dating—especially after Momoa gave Beckinsale his coat.
But Momoa is setting the record straight, denying the two are anything more than friends.
The two may just be pals, but you can't blame people for thinking otherwise.
The two appeared awfully cozy at the annual Vanity Fair post-Oscars bash, where they were spotted together as they were leaving the event.
The two seemed to get closer and closer while they chatted, but it was a certain gesture that really got people talking. At one point Momoa gave Beckinsale his jacket, draping it around her bare shoulders.
But Momoa isn't having any of it.
At the premiere for the new film AmbuLAnce on Monday, Momoa told Extra the rumors are just that—rumors which he called "cray."
Momoa clarified he and Beckinsale were just chatting about the latter's native England, where Momoa spent several months in 2021 filming the upcoming Aquaman sequel Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
And as for the coat?
Momoa says it was all down to something very simple—the temperature outside.
As he put it to Extra:
"Everyone is like, ‘Are you dating?’ No, no, it was chivalry. The woman was cold."
"Absolutely not, not together. She is very nice. I was being very nice, just being a gentleman."
And it sounds like the furor over the simple gesture has taught Momoa a lesson.
"Now, I am not giving my coat to anyone."
On Twitter, many people were glad to hear their favorite star is still very much on the market.
But others were still holding out hope for a romance.
Momoa also addressed rumors he and ex-wife Lisa Bonet are reconnecting.
That too appears to be nothing but idle chatter.
