Minka Kelly not dating Wilmer Valderrama

Minka Kelly not dating Wilmer Valderrama

Minka Kelly thinks Wilmer Valderrama is a "really, really good person".

The 36-year-old actress has recently been romantically linked with the 'NCIS' star - four years after they were first reported to be dating - following the end of his relationship with Demi Lovato, but she insists they have only ever been friends.

Speaking to Power 106's J Cruz and Krystal Bee, she said: "He's a good friend to me. And it's funny--he's not my ex. We are good friends, and we always have been. We're not exes!

"Wilmer's a really, really good person, and any woman would be lucky to have him."

The 'Friday Night Lights' star admits having her personal life speculated about is frustrating, but she thinks it's all part of her job.

She said: "I think it comes with the territory. It's a small price to pay for the extraordinary life that I live.

"I think if they're paying attention, that must mean there's something [I'm doing right]."

And instead of getting upset by the gossip, she just looks for the funny side.

She said: "Look, if it's true and it's out, then it's true and it's out. When it's not true and it's out, it's really frustrating. You just have to find the comedy in all of it."

Despite Minka's insistence she and Wilmer, also 36, are not together, the pair enjoyed a vacation to Mexico over Labor Day weekend.

They previously enjoyed a Mexican trip with close friends, but this time around they have gone alone to spend quality time together and were seen relaxing by a beautiful pool.

The break came a few days after they were seen enjoying dinner at the Palms Thai restaurant in Hollywood.

A source said: "[Minka and Wilmer] did have a late dinner at Palms Thai together last night. They sat across from each other and it was just the two of them.

"I didn't personally see if they were holding hands or if they were being affectionate, but it looked like a date. They looked casual and relaxed. Yes, Wilmer was a gentleman and picked up the tab to pay for their food."
