Looks like we won’t be getting that steamy serial killer love triangle we asked Santa for this year, since Julia Stiles has denied having an affair with Dexter’s Michael C. Hall. Despite rumors that Stiles and Hall have been flirting all over the show’s blood-spattered set, Julia says any gossip suggesting that she had a hand in Hall’s divorce from co-star Jennifer Carpenter is just ridiculous. “I have absolutely nothing to do with the split between Michael and Jennifer. We are good friends and enjoyed working together,” Stiles claimed. We were wondering how that amount of awkwardness was going to fit on one sound stage. Now they only have to kill off one character at the end of the season!
“This is a personal matter between them, and we should respect their privacy. Although I too prefer to keep my private life private, I felt compelled to dispel the rumors I was somehow the cause for this matter,” she concluded. Looks like Julia will have to put the lotion on her skin herself this Christmas. [Photos: Getty Images/Showtime]
