Actress Penelope Cruz has heightened reports she's dating MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY after she was spotted kissing the movie hunk at a London concert.

Spanish beauty Cruz - who ended her three-year romance with Tom Cruise in January (04) - and McConaughey were seen acting intimately at a Gomez gig at the Hammersmith Apollo on Thursday (27MAY04), according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.

The pair - who are starring together in upcoming movie SAHARA - were linked in the aftermath of Cruz's split with Cruise, and last month (MAY04) McConaughey fuelled reports of a relationship when he jetted to Madrid, Spain to attend the actress' 30th birthday party.
