Alyssa Milano has denied dating Justin Theroux before he was in a relationship with Jennifer Aniston.
After Entertainment Weekly listed the 'Charmed' star and the 'Wanderlust' actor as one of their "surprising celebrity hookups", Milano was quick to shoot the claim down.
The 39-year-old actress said via twitter: "Completely false. We were co-workers & great friends but never dated."
The pair met on the set of 1997 thriller 'Below Utopia' where their roles as an on-screen couple were rumoured to have led to a real-life romance.
However Milano has clarified that he was in fact involved with her friend, Kathryne Dora Brown, while they played lovers on camera.
She clarified: "He dated my best friend at the time. I love that guy."
Alyssa and her husband David Bugliari welcomed baby Milo on August 31, 2011.
Meanwhile Theroux, 40, and Aniston, 43, share a home together in Los Angeles.
Aniston is also looking for a home in London while she shoots low-budget comedy drama 'Miss You Already' in the UK capital and has instructed her representatives to find her a property to rent.
