(LOS ANGELES) -- Despite rumors that they hooked up, Scarlett Johansson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are keeping things strictly on a professional level.
Us Weekly reported this week that the two were spotted kissing in New York City last month. But Johansson's rep tells E! Online that the actress never kissed or dated Gordon-Levitt.
"They are simply friends and talking about working on a project together," the rep says.
Us Weekly's source claimed that Johansson and Gordon-Levitt did initially meet to discuss a film, but it has "gone beyond that now."
