Kellan Lutz slams Miley Cyrus dating rumours as 'hilarious'

Kellan Lutz has denied claims he is dating Miley Cyrus.
The model-and-actor has been linked to the Wrecking Ball singer for weeks.
But the 28-year-old was quick to set the record straight during a chat on KIIS FM radio station’s On Air with Ryan Seacrest show today.
“These rumours are hilarious,” Kellan shared. “It just makes me laugh…I’ve been friends with Miley for like six years.”
Kellan is best known for his role as Emmett Cullen in The Twilight Saga film series.
He was first pictured arriving with 21-year-old Miley in Miami, Florida on the same private jet on December 18.
But while he claims to be single, Kellan was still full of compliments for the former Hannah Montana star.
“She’s a great girl … we are friends [and] we run in the same circle. Are we dating? No,” he said.
Kellan also took the opportunity to talk about his latest film The Legend of Hercules.
And for the actor, it seems the part of Hercules was a dream role.
“For me there was no pressure, just excitement,” Kellan revealed. “Because this is my favourite superhero … for me, Hercules was my childhood dream.”
Another dream came true for the actor recently while filming The Expendables 3.
Kellan recalled during a chat with Collider how in awe he was when he first met his idol Sylvester Stallone.
“I don't really get star struck. I just get so excited because these are guys I've always wanted to work with,” he said.
“I would pretend I was Rambo or Rocky. But for them, it's always so awkward. You're an actor with them, and you want a picture with them, but you don't want to come off like you want a picture with them.”
