If Demi Moore wanted to match Ashton Kutcher rumor for rumor, well...mission accomplished.
While a photo of her ex looking snuggly with Mila Kunis made the rounds, the seemingly happy-and-healthy-again actress was on a trip to New Preston, Conn., where she spent an awful lot of time with hunky New Zealander Martin Henderson.
The 37-year-old actor, best known as Naomi Watts' ill-fated ex in The Ring and for the ABC series Off the Map, was spotted hiking and dining with Moore, 49, prompting a fair amount of gushing about their romantic potential and a report that they're secretly dating.
Sources tell E! News, however, that Moore and Henderson are just friends—and the romantic hike they reportedly took was a group outing with about a dozen other people.
They met through a mutual acquaintance who arranged last week's quick jaunt to Connecticut.
But hey, there's nothing wrong with Moore making a new friend, right? Especially a strapping, handsome male friend.
