US actress Julia Stiles has released a statement to deny reports she was involved in Michael C Hall's split from Jennifer Carpenter.
Following an announcement this week that the couple's two-year marriage has come to an end, rumours surfaced that Michael had secretly been dating his Dexter on-screen love interest Julia.
But that's just not true, says the 29-year-old actress.
"I have absolutely nothing to do with the split between Michael and Jennifer," she said.
"We are good friends and enjoy working together. This is a personal matter between then, and we should respect their privacy.
"Although I too prefer to keep my private life, private, - I felt compelled to dispel the rumours I was somehow the cause for this matter," she added.
