Avatar star Sam Worthington has a new love in his life, but this one is conspicuously lacking blue skin.

Sam was spotted looking cozy with model/actress Sophie Monk, with whom he has been rumored to be in a relationship with.

Just Jared reports that 36-year-old Sam and 33-year-old Sophie were holding hands and cuddling at the airport in Melbourne, Australia, after Sam picked her up from a flight. The pair had previously been spotted kissing, but Sophie denied that she was dating the fellow British-born Aussie, saying, “We’re very close, but we’re not dating. He’s a good friend. I really like him. He’s just really down to earth and really… Australian.”

Monk further explained their relationship to Sydney Confidential, adding, "Sam and I are working on a show together that we are pitching for the Australian market, a sitcom about my life that is kind of like a cross between Curb Your Enthusiasm and Sex and the City."

 

 

Sophie has had a string of high-profile romances, dating Good Charlotte frontman Benji Madden and Ryan Seacrest, but it looks like Sam could finally be the one for her.

"I don't think anyone really gets an Australian like another Australian gets them," she said.
