Columbian actress Sofia Vergara has laughed off reports her relationship with Tom Cruise has already turned serious.

The SOUL PLANE beauty has been romantically linked to the Hollywood superstar in recent weeks, but Vergara insists news of their blossoming union has been grossly exaggerated by the gossip-hungry fingers of imaginative journalists.

And while the sexy star confesses she has recently struck up a relationship with Cruise, she's downplayed claims the pair have already been intimate, reports website PAGESIX.COM.

She says, "I've only known Tom for a very short time. It's funny because the media creates what they want to create. And according to them, Tom is in a full-fledged, sexual relationship with the most irresistible woman in the world - me!"
