There’s nothing romantic going on between Ruth Wilson and Joshua Jackson. The 34-year-old actress shot down reports of a rumored romance in a Vanity Fair interview which was published on Wednesday.
"It's boring gossip," Wilson told the magazine of reports that she's dating her co-star on Showtime's The Affair.
Romance rumors began swirling after Wilson was spotted with 38-year-old Jackson at a New York City restaurant in August, but the outing was strictly platonic.
"You can tell from that photo that we’re friends. I just sort of go, 'All right, well, whatever, I have to keep answering.'"
"If you want an answer about whether we're dating or not, 'no' is the absolute truth," Wilson continued. "We all go out a lot. We're four Irish-Catholic actors who happen to be on a show together, and that means we like a drink and we like to have a good time. So all four of us go out."
Jackson is back on the market after ending a 10-year relationship with The Infiltrator actress, Diane Kruger, in July. The exes have remained friendly since the split, and were recently spotted hugging as Jackson dropped Kruger off at Los Angeles International airport.
