Now that Russell Crowe's single, the tabloids just can't get enough of the rumours about his new love life.

In only a matter of months, Rusty has had to deny reports about his "relationships" with Dita Von Teese, Billy Joel's ex-wife Katie Lee, Natalie Imbruglia, and now, his Les Misérables co-star Samantha Barks (aka, the girl with the tiny waist, or Eponine, to fans).

"@SamanthaBarks apparently we are an item according to Aussie magazines ... sorry about that Sammi," Russ tweeted in response to a report in yesterday's New Idea.

"Rumours are hilarious and not true! #funnyoldworld :)," Samantha tweeted this morning.

Russ, 48, and Samantha, 22, were snapped having lunch in trackies in Los Angeles last week. The pair work out together, and share their routines on each other's Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Naturally, New Idea concluded that all of those romantic updates about bench presses and squats means it's a goer. The mag said that the pair has a "special relationship". Er, maybe it's called "friendship"?

Samantha recently tweeted a picture from the set of Les Mis with the caption, "This is one of my favourite on-set pictures! Having boxing lessons with Russell in between scenes! We had the best time hanging out. It was awesome".

Right before the Oscars, Russell tweeted that Samantha "will be looking amazing tonight, worth tuning in just for that".

Indeed, Russell does have a lot of gorgeous female friends in his life. Last week, he called "BS" on the rumours about him and long-time friend Natalie Imbruglia hooking up. In January, Russ did the same thing when reports emerged that he got a "couples' massage" with Dita Von Teese. We don't blame for getting sick of the rumours by now!

Kudos to Russ for addressing the rumours on Twitter, instead of letting false reports fester. Russell is due back in Australia soon to work on a local production, after spending months away from his children filming movies back to back in 2012.

Russell's ex-wife Danielle Spencer, who he split from last year after nine years of marriage, is reportedly reviving her acting and music careers after putting them on hold to be a full-time mother to Charlie, nine, and Tennyson, six.
