Australian actor *Kick Gurry *has denied reports he is dating *James Packer *'s ex-wife *Erica *.

Last month, Woman's Day suggested Packer, far right, had found love again with Melbourne- raised Los Angeles-based Gurry, 36.

"It seems like they've been mates a while but things have shifted. There's no doubt he's keen but from what I can gather they are both taking things slowly," the magazine wrote.

Gurry, above, spoke out on a Sydney radio show yesterday saying while they had been friends for more than a decade there was no truth to the romance rumours.

"I haven't seen Erica in a quite a long time," said Gurry, who is currently appearing opposite *Tom Cruise *and *Emily Blunt * in the sci-fi blockbuster Edge of Tomorrow. "She and I have known each other for probably 10 or 12 years now, and I think she is a real force of nature. She is a really great mother and a great human being."
