Rourke “Too Old” For 21-Year-Old Costar

Wood to Rolling Stone: "Nothing ever happened, and nothing ever will"

Consider this May-December romance rumor officially knocked out.

Evan Rachel Wood, 21, denied reports today that she and "The Wrestler" costar Mickey Rourke were involved during production of their film, which earned Rourke a Golden Globe and Oscar nomination for Best Actor.

Rumors of a romance between the actors have swirled through Hollywood since filming began. Recently, an alleged liplock at the SAG awards added fuel to the fire of press accusations.

"I'm not attracted to him, he's too old for me," Wood told Rolling Stone magazine. "Nothing ever happened, and nothing ever will." 

At 56, Rourke is nearly three times as old as Wood, who starred in last year's "Across the Universe."  

Wood previously dated shock rocker Marilyn Manson, now 40. The two split late last year.
