The Wrestler co-stars may start wrestling in real life.
She's also hitting back at Rourke.
"I’m upset because I feel disrespected by the press and by Mr. Rourke," she told Rollingstone.com. "Just because I’m single doesn’t mean that you can take advantage of me. It’s unfair that the performances might suffer because of all of these distractions. I'm not attracted to him, he's too old for me. Nothing ever happened and nothing ever will."
Foxnews.com's Pop Tarts column reported that last Sunday, Rourke and Wood were seen making out at a Screen Actors' Guild after-party at the Four Seasons Hotel.
It was not the first time that the prospect of a Rourke/Wood hookup had been broached.
Wood herself said in a December interview that during the filming of The Wrestler, "people thought we were dating because we got so close in a family kind of way. That's why we felt comfortable enough to put our arms around each other. We were just buds."
Wood played Rourke's daughter in the film.
Wood, now 21, was previously in a relationship with Goth singer Marilyn Manson, now 40, that began when she was 19.
