Over the weekend, romance rumors about these two co-stars made headlines when director Zal Batmangilj tweeted a photo of them looking incredibly affectionate, with Alexander giving Ellen a kiss on the head. Ellen even retweeted the photo, poking fun at the matching, denim jackets she and Alexander are wearing in it.
However, new reports reveal that the duo aren’t actually a couple, and there’s no actual indication of when the photo itself was taken. Sources say that The East co-stars are definitely NOT dating in real life.
Alex and Ellen were first linked back in June 2012, when they attended a game of the Stanley Cup finals together, but even back then, sources shut down rumors that it was a romantic connection that brought them to the game. Hmm..looks like we’ll have to see if they hit up another game when this year’s finals start on Wednesday!
