Few of those who've seen 2009's '500 Days of Summer' could deny that there's a bit of chemistry between Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel.
But 'The Dark Knight Rises' star says it's "awkward" when people say they're going out, and that they're just good friends.
Speculation about the pair coupling up has been sparked both by their closeness and Deschanel's recent divorce from ex-husband Ben Gibbard.
In an interview with Playboy magazine he said: "It's awkward when people say that. Zooey and I just think it's funny. It is funny. We've been friends for 10 years,"
He gushed about his friend, saying: "She loves movies, music and art, and she’s incredibly knowledgeable about that stuff. She’s turned me on to so many good movies and so much good music, it’s fun just to have conversations, watch movies with her and stuff like that."
Deschanel's and Gordon-Levitt sounds like the ultimate platonic relationship, awww!
