Olivia Wilde Shoots Down People Mag Story Claiming She’s On Flirting Frenzy

Truth rating: 0

Olivia Wilde is “single and ready to mingle,” says People magazine, which reports the actress has been “hanging with the hottest guys in Hollywood” ever since she split from her husband of seven years, Tao Ruspoli.

The mag claims Wilde was spotted “getting cozy” last night with Ryan Reynolds at The Troubadour club in L.A., and notes the pair also hung out at a Details magazine party three weeks ago.

Just a few days ago, adds the mag, “Wilde got touchy-feely with Jake Gyllenhaal” at Chateau Marmont, “where the two chatted and acted flirty.” But that’s not all. The “House” star has also recently been seen out with Bradley Cooper and former co-star Justin Timberake, says the weekly. Scandalous!

Wilde, however, seems to be a bit exasperated with all these “flirting” stories, and has taken to Twitter to address the rumors. “Hey! All you people standing with[in] 5 feet of each other! Stop flirting! Have you no shame?!” wrote Wilde, clearly mocking the People story.

Wilde is single. She’s an actress, which means she sometimes hangs out with other… actors. That’s all. Gossip Cop thinks it’s about time outlets just let Wilde be single, and stop trying to link her to every actor she talks to.
