Earlier this week Ashley Benson (Hanna) tweeted that the rumors that she and Pretty Little Liar co-star Keegan Allen (Toby Cavanaugh) are dating are "news to [her]." If that wasn't enough to convince you that the duo are purely platonic buddies, maybe this will be.

Keegan spoke to Hollyscoop at the premiere of Brave, and he declared that he and Ashley "are just friends." There's no misinterpreting that. He added that while he is "really close" with all of his female co-stars, those relationships are all "platonic."

So there you have it. As we suspected, all the recent pics of Keegan and Ashley are just proof that the PLL actors like hanging out in real life, nothing more.

Last we heard, Ashley Benson was in fact still dating Ryan Good, who is currently on tour with Justin Bieber.

Catch an all-new episode of PLL on Tuesday, June 26 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
