Appearances can be deceiving.

Kate Hudson set the record straight after rumors swirled that she was dating football star JJ Watt.

Insisting the two are just friends, Hudson told Extra, “We were just at dinner with just a bunch of people.”

“We have the same agent,” she added. “He’s a nice dude, he’s a nice guy he’s enormous, he’s huge.”

According to a sound bite from the Houston Texans player in Hudson’s recent post on Snapchat, she and Watt were on a “date.”

In the photos and video, which you can see and judge for yourself via the fan page JJ Watt Ladies, Watt, 27, and Hudson, 36, are sitting next to each other at a restaurant and playing with photo filters.

“Apparently the stars belong to the hottest person on the date, that’s why Kate wins,” Watt says in the video, while moving the camera phone from Hudson to himself. When the “star” filter appears over Watt’s head as well, the two new friends share an excited reaction and a laugh.

Hudson, who was most recently linked to Nick Jonas, has reportedly been flying solo. A source tells PEOPLE the Mother’s Day actress did not bring a date to celebrity stylist Jamie Schneider’s star-studded wedding, but was spotted Facetiming with someone.

Meanwhile Watt is rumored to be dating UFC fighter and current Dancing with the Stars cast member Paige VanZant.
