On Thursday (03Jan13), a U.K. newspaper carried photographs of the pair kissing as they left a restaurant in London, where the actress is starring as the Wicked Queen in a pantomime production of Snow White.
A report alongside the images suggested Presley, 67, and 42-year-old Anstis are dating, but Elvis Presley’s ex-wife has spoken out to clear up the rumour.
A spokesman for Presley tells Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper the star is just pals with Anstis and they had been out dining with other friends on the evening the photos were shot.
The representative adds, “Ms. Presley gave Mr. Anstis the same friendly farewell she gave to everyone else who was in attendance at the dinner, a kiss on both cheeks.”
