Actress Natalie Portman denied on Friday she and actor Sean Penn are dating.

The reports that we are romantically involved are completely untrue. I normally do not respond to rumors about my private life, however, this repeatedly fabricated story has forced me to do so, Portman told Extra.

Rumors spread that the actors are an item after they have been spot together and as Penn is divorcing from his wife, Robin Wright Penn.

Portman and singer Devendra Banhart ended their relationship last fall.
