James Deen is setting the record straight!

During an interview with Animal New York, the 26-year-old porn star hasn't gone down that path with his The Canyons co-star Lindsay Lohan.

“I can definitely, honestly say Lindsay Lohan and I are not having sex!," Deen said. "[If I was] I think I would tell everybody."

Rumors of the two hooking up were sparked once photographs of them sharing a smoke break surfaced during a dinner meeting (see above). Despite Deen's profession, he insists that things between them are cordial and professional.

"I don’t know anything about her except for that she’s a really nice, down-to-earth, normal twenty-five-year-old girl," he said of Lohan, whose 26th birthday was yesterday. "We went to a business dinner and she was very professional. She drank coffee and water. Then she had to call for a car because she couldn’t walk ten feet from the door because of the paparazzi.”

Deen will play Lindsay's boyfriend in the Bret Easton Ellis sex thriller, his first foray into mainstream acting, something that he's taking seriously by enrolling into acting classes and taking a break from the adult film scene. And although they will share some steamy sex scenes on screen, Deen was quick to diffuse any notions of their on-screen action being carried on elsewhere.

"It’s all necessary to the story. This is not an adult film. We are not trying to arouse people. If someone does get aroused, well, it happens. It’s like 'American Psycho,' 'Less Than Zero,'" he said. "It’s not graphic sex for the sake of graphic sex."
