Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgard may appear sweet and cuddling on that Twitter photo posted by their “The East” director Zal Batmanglij over the weekend (which spread over social media like a virus), but people are now saying the co-stars are just friends.
If you remember nearly a year ago, Page and Skarsgard were both spotted watching a basketball game (pictured below) and rumors of a coupling soon erupted but was quickly denied. It happened again when the two were spotted at the Los Angeles International Airport together.
Ellen Page re-tweeted the newly-posted photo (that shows Skarsgard’s arm around Page) with the caption “Canadian tuxedo party,” referring to their matching denim-on-denim outfits.
A source now tells People magazine that the two are just friends, and isn’t aware how long ago the picture was taken. This could also be a good PR stunt to boost interest for their indie thriller flick, which is currently in limited release in the US.
