Miley Cyrus kisses a lot of her friends — most recently, Cara Delevigne and Ryan Seacrest — so where does that leave Kellan Lutz on her list of smooching partners?

Cyrus, 21, and Lutz, 28, sparked dating rumors after the two were reportedly caught making out at the opening of Beacher's Madhouse in Las Vegas on Dec. 27.

The "Hercules" star was grilled about the romance gossip on Monday morning.

"These rumors are hilarious," Kellan told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS FM radio show. “It just makes me laugh because of the assumption of a few pictures … I've been friends with Miley for, like, six years now I think. She's a great girl … we are friends [and] we run in the same circle."

Kellan's circle of friends also includes Miley's ex-fiancé, Liam Hemsworth, which makes for a potentially awkward situation.

"I love hanging out with Miley," continued Lutz. "She's super talented, but she's a really cool, secure woman. I always love hanging out with her, I've been hanging out with her for years."

While Kellan certainly got the point across that they are friends, he sort of danced around the dating topic until he was asked point blank.

"Are we dating? No," he laughed. "She's a really good friend of mine. I'm happily single … I'm not [looking for a relationship] right now. I'm enjoying life and traveling quite a bit … there's no real time to find the one."

Us Weekly first reported that Miley and Kellan were "hooking up" in December, with E! Online following suit last week claiming, "she likes him a lot."

Miley, care to weigh in?
