The Match Point star, who was arrested with Hammer in January 2005 on suspicion of assaulting each other, insists the incident was simply an argument which got out of hand.
He says, "No we didn't punch each other. The newspapers said we punched each other.
"We were having a bit of a screaming match and the neighbors called the cops because they didn't know who was screaming.
"We went down to the station, gave our apologies to the neighbors, and the neighbors said that was grand. And that was it.
"But in the newspapers it was like, 'Jonathan beat up his girlfriend.' And I was like, 'Aaagh, do I really have to deal with that?'"
