Kelly Rutherford on Matthew Settle: ‘We’re Going to Hook Up Tomorrow’
Kelly Rutherford (Lily) has penciled in a liaison with her onscreen husband Matthew Settle (Rufus) for sometime tomorrow. Actually, she said that on Friday so the hookup must already be checked off her to-do list.
Kelly responded jokingly to a reporter grilling her on the rumors about her and her recently-divorced costar (which his rep has already flatly denied), saying, "Oh yeah, we’re going to hook up tomorrow." She continued more seriously, "No, I don’t know. I don’t think so."
You 'don't think so,' eh, Kelly? That's not exactly the firm denial Matthew's people issued. But then, Miss Rutherford seems to enjoy embarrassing her costars with pretend intimations of romance. She also took this opportunity to once again pick on Chace Crawford. "Who wouldn’t have a crush on Chace?" Kelly asked. "But he’s like a younger-brother crush, not like a real crush."
This time, K made it clear there's no real Ashton-and-Demi love connection brewing (despite reports to the contrary). "They call me a cougar right? You know what it is? All of them remind me of my younger brother in that kind of way, not in a romantic way," she explained. "In a kind of playful, 'you’re cute, you’re 20' way. Not like, 'I want to be with you.' "
