Actor Bruce Willis has denied reports he is dating actress Drew Barrymore.

The 'Die Hard' star was spotted kissing Barrymore at a recent social event.

But Willis insists that just because he gave his friend a kiss doesn't mean they are romantically involved.

He tells Playboy magazine, "Drew and I are old friends. I hadn't seen her for a long time, and I gave her a kiss. There were other things going on in the room that night that weren't reported, things far racier than my giving Drew a kiss.

"If it's against the law to kiss a beautiful actress who is a friend of mine, then lock me up and take me to the gulag. "
