Hollywood beauty Scarlett Johansson has denied any romance with singer Justin Timberlake amid tabloid speculation.

The pair were seen spending time together after Justin, 26, split with his girlfriend of over three years, actress Cameron Diaz, in January.

Speaking to style bible Vogue the Lost in Translation star spoke about her friendship with Justin but denied they were anything more than good friends.

However could the Kiss shared by the pair in Justin's new music video for What Comes Around hint at a love interest between the stars? Apparently not, Scarlett asserted.

"We had fun together, but it's not like the first time I've ever hung out with him," the Black Dahlia star said of filming the sizzling music video.

According to Scarlett, the romance was all speculation caused by press attention. "I think this [rumour] happens because we're both single and in the spotlight, and obviously Justin's a very high-profile person," she added.

And it seems Scarlett won't have time for romance with such a busy schedule in the next few years. Alongside three period dramas, The Other Boleyn Girl, Napoleon and Betsy and Mary Queen of Scots, the actress will also be starring in crime thriller Brilliant.
