Billy Bob Thornton has denied he is romancing Tea Leoni.
The 53-year-old actor, who was reported to have been secretly dating Tea after meeting her on the set of their new film 'Manure', insists their relationship is purely professional.
Billy Bob's representative said: "Billy and Tea are friends. They recently completed shooting a film together."
It was reported this week Tea's estranged husband David Duchovny separated from his wife after discovering explicit text messages from Billy Bob on his wife's cell phone.
Tea - who has been married to David for 11 years and has two children with him - further fuelled relationship rumours by praising her 'Manure' co-star.
She said: "We have this incredible cast with Billy Bob Thornton, who is maybe my new favourite person in the world."
