Spanish actress Penelope Cruz has slammed the media for implying she's discussed her romance with actor MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY - because she has always refused to publicly talk about her relationships.

Cruz met McConaughey on the set of their adventure movie SAHARA last year (04), and has just signed to play his lover in another movie - THE LOOP.

But she is furious about the media's obsession with their off-screen antics and has slammed a recent US article for claiming she had "confirmed" she was dating the Texan hunk.

She fumes, "I didn't confirm anything. If they see us together, bueno (fine), they see us together. But I don't talk about it. It has nothing to do with my job."
